Sour Beer: A Taste for the Tart

Beer

Just getting into the exciting world of craft beer? You might not be familiar with the tongue-tickling category of sours.

The Dahlia Lama Speaks

Garden

Just as the season begins to turn and that first chilly wind hits, these bodaciously brilliant blooms arrive for summer’s last hurrah. Anyone who has been nursing their dahlias since late May, as I have, knows how exciting this moment is.

Guys Who Grow Perfect Corn

Food

For years I had seen the pale green antique truck with the words “Howden Farm” painted on the side in a retro-chic font.  When I saw it in LaBonne’s parking lot I’d be thrilled to know there was a fresh stash of just picked butter and sugar corn waiting to be grabbed by the dozen from the corn bin at the front of the store.

Millbrook, N.Y.

For Sparkly Summer Drinks You’ve Got Choices

Wine

Got $100 burning a hole in your pocket? There’s a mind-blowing bottle of sparkling wine for that. Need a host gift and don’t want to break the bank? Just $15 will get you something both crowd-pleasing and delicious.
This does beg a very interesting question: What exactly are you paying for, and why? The wide variation of both price and quality are due to many factors. The two primary are how it was made and where it was made.

Good Wine in Cool Cans

Wine

If the thought of wine in a can makes you bristle, you are not alone. Immediately, thoughts of a vaguely aluminum taste lingering in your end of the day reward might enter your mind. Then there’s the romance and ritual of a bottle of wine: the selection, the popping of the cork and the pouring of the glass. Cracking a can of wine as you would a Bud Light just does not have the same effect. Quality questions also abound: would you ever find a wine that was actually good in a can?

The Other Cabernet

Wine

Cabernet franc has a noble history. Its ancestral roots are in the Basque region of Spain, and it is genetically considered the “parent” of its famous and strapping offspring, cabernet sauvignon. In the Bordeaux region, it is considered the ultimate blending grape; it ripens sooner and with more ease than cabernet sauvignon, giving confidence to vineyard owners during cooler growing seasons. Naturally spicy and buoyant, it lifts and aromatizes anything it touches.
