S.A. Prum::
Rieslings to die for Whether floral and fruity, delicate, subtle, and low in alcohol, or medium- or full-bodied, Rieslings from the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer in Germany are fabulously crisp and balanced. They stand up to rich foods like pork and foie gras while complementing spicy Asian, Caribbean and Indian foods.

Yet most people have more technology in their kitchens than in any other room in their house. These inventions have accumulated around kitchens over the years, drifting down the spectrum from curiosities to novelties and eventually to necessities.
