Even Alton Brown thinks Sandra Lee is creepy!

Date: Tue, Mar 16, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Not too long ago I wrote a piece entitled Why do I hate Sandra Lee so much? that I used as a launching off point for a rant about what a wasteland Food Network has become. I used Sandra Lee, rightfully so, as the spokesmodel for everything wrong with what used to be my favorite [...]

Cooking Techniques – Make Your Own Fish Stock

Date: Mon, Mar 15, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

It really is about technique, so don't think of this as a recipe. Almost all ingredients can be removed or replaced it is just a matter of taste. All that is really important is that the shells, bones and heads are quickly sauteed; the wine doesn't have any off flavors or strong taste, and that the mixture doesn't boil.

Date: Sun, Mar 14, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

L'Ecole No. 41 takes its name from the historic Frenchtown schoolhouse that houses the winery. Every wine in their portfolio we tasted is good, and it's no wonder they've been named Winery of the Year eight times by Wine & Spirits. If all Washington State wines taste like these, we can't wait to get to Walla Walla.

They say, “Joe, why do you drink?”

Date: Sun, Mar 7, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

I have a shameful confession to make: I am a Detroit Lions fan. There, it’s out there and I can’t take it back. I root for a team that has won 3 out of their last 39 games, holds the NFL record for the longest drought of road wins, and is the only team in [...]

A Tale of Two Meals

Date: Sat, Mar 6, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

To be honest, it made me want to go back in the kitchen and cook each course properly so that the chef and the proprietor could taste the difference. I can't help it, I have a Gordon Ramsey complex. "Have you $@#%ing TASTED it???"

Fish for Lent?

Date: Sat, Feb 20, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

This isn't going to be another one of those tired old articles about how to not suffer too much during Lent. In fact, if you are a believer who devoutly gives up meat for the horrors of something like shrimp or sushi, you should probably stop reading right now and go get yourself some *&#%ing tilapia.
