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.

Time For Tomatoes

Food

We have all kinds of tomatoes out there. The lowest category is the drugstore tomato, pale, grainy slices lobbed onto sandwiches at pharmacies with marble counters and bitter coffee.  The sandwiches I ate at such places in the 1950s in New York survive to this day at coffee shops near hospitals  on Lexington Avenue where visitors  ignore the tomatoes and vent their angst about sickly people they love with a Scotch Sour.

It’s High Time For Rosé

Wine

No one deserves rosé more than New Englanders when the spring rains finally relent. A stretch of time lies before us, when we can relish daylight until 8:30 p.m. and reward ourselves with the joy of a chilled glass of pink wine, just for having survived the last several months.

How to Roast a Chicken

Food

Roast chicken can be a treasure. For new cooks striving to impress without too much fear of failure, roast chicken is a  gift; for experienced  cooks it’s a way to feed unexpected guests without much fuss or muss. And every cookbook has a recipe, some straightforward, others intricate; you can follow any one of them and have a roast chicken on the table that guests will always be happy to ooh over.

The thoughtful way to welcome your wedding guests

Confession — I have never thrown a wedding. But I have attended plenty of weddings, and I’ve even been in a handful. So from the guest’s-eye-view, I know details matter.

The Perfect Small Cake for Your Valentine’s Dessert

Valentine's

With the snow, the short daylight hours and the negative-degree-temperatures that come along with the frigid month of February, Valentine’s Day arrives at the perfect time to treat yourself to a little indulgence — especially when it comes to all things chocolate.

How To Make Good Soup

Food

Soup. Food that fills you up and dents the joys of dessert. That’s what I always thought as a kid eating in a  restaurant with white tablecloths and a  pepper grinder on the table. My sister and I were learning the rules. No spilling. No kicking each other under the table. And start with soup. Now I saw soup as  filler, time waster, bore and totally unnecessary. Let’s get to the biscuit tortoni!
