I redesigned this blog, and by redesign, I chose a predesigned generic layout off blogger's menu because it's been so long since I've coded that I can't figure out what the heck is going on, but the blog needed a serious visual update. This is: Food I see, cook, and eat, along with some philosophical and nostalgic ramblings, and a pinch of science and principles learned in cooking school and from voracious reading...and eating. Very voracious eating.
Bill brought some tasty wine to my last Table for Four Five party, and although each of my guests had a glass, I had just over a half cup left. I'm not much of a drinker (anymore), but I'll happily cook with wine whenever it's on hand. Chicken braised in wine--very yum, fabulous pairing for sure! Slightly sweet, but crisply tart, nice acidity, medium body. Even without drinking it, all that still comes through in the food. Woot!
