Default Two Buck Chuck

All,

A friend of mine, former New York denizen AJ, sent me this link to an article on cooking with wine in The New York Times. Have a look; it's informative, well written and funny: It Boils Down to This: Cheap Wine Works Fine - New York Times .

Other than the faux pas of referring to Chardonnay being aged in cedar very informative.

Les, guys,

Pick up on this one, too. I'm not going to comment; too busy shaking my head.

I like the Tuesday Night Bottles and Saturday Night Bottles rule.

Thinking about it, I always thought Julia's rule, was not to cook with a wine you wouldn't drink. That leaves a much wider range.

I agree with the don't cook with it if you wouldn't drink it rule (of course you should see what I will drink!).

But you have read Jim's NY Times article on Outdoor Fireplaces. Wow. That's all I can say.

Makes me wish I had thought out my backyard a little better - I could have sat there watching the climate get warmer while drinking my chardonnay aged in cedar

JE,

Pass me the sauteed rodent, sans tail, with kidneys on the side. I've eaten raw seal liver in the Yukon, on the shore of the Beaufort Sea, and it can't be any worse than that. There's a certain essence of seaweed and low tide in a bay that stays with you.
