Growing Your Own! Yes, in Vegas!

Well. Now that I have your attention...

Spring Wine and Staycation!

The first seminar I attended was all about Pinot Noir. There were ten for us to taste and it was hosted by two Master Sommeliers and the winemakers. Was I in heaven or what.

Blast from the Past – Sweet Water Experience Not So Sweet

So I also ordered an iced tea. Which was interesting, because although our very diligent beverage guy made sure that our glasses were filled, there was no actual “ice” involved until he asked us if we needed ice for our iced tea.

A Week of Sous Vide and Wine

When chicken is cooked this way, it doesn’t just “taste like chicken.” This chicken has flavor, depth, and complexity, and no other foods that allegedly taste like chicken can possibly taste like *this* chicken.
