The Coolest Beer:
The making of beer has changed dramatically over the centuries--particularly during the last one. The beverage has shifted from a rich, locally-produced staple to a blanched, sanitized drink. But in recent years, the pendulum has swung back again, and flavorful brews are widely available; you just need to know how to choose them. And we don’t mean simply picking up a six-pack of snazzy-looking “micro-brewed” or imported beer.
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.
Three enjoyable reds at great value:
From Portugal, Chile and Argentina, Lafite Rotschild owned properties have come up with “regular”or “second label” wines worth exploring.
French winemakers mull screw cap vs. cork:
In France, it has become an uphill battle to convince a skeptical public that wine in a screwtop bottle is not a cheap, nasty beverage.
Sokol Blosser Wines:
When one thinks Oregon, what comes to mind is Pinot Noir, green state and sustainability. For thirty years now the family-owned Sokol Blosser Winery in Dundee Hills in the northern Willamette Valley, Oregon has been combining elegant award-winning Pinot Noirs with growing grapes organically and sustainability in all winery operations

A Detour To Rimini: Along the Adriatic coast with beautiful beaches of very fine sand, Rimini may seem like a sleepy vacation spot, but it's not. The old Roman port of Rimini, immortalized in Fellini's Amarcord, is also the capital of Italian night life and a center of historical sites. By Kyle Phillips

Summertime And The Living Is Easy In Northern Burgundy: Rich in tradition, history, gastronomy and excellent wines, Burgundy is renowned for its warm hospitality and inimitable knack for enjoying life. Linda Watten enjoys the long, balmy evenings scented with lilac, wisteria, and climbing roses of her garden while feasting on local produce, wines and cultural events in neighboring Medieval towns.

The Perfect Peeler by Kyocera:

When Science has tangible and practical uses in the kitchen

At last a peeler that seems to glide as it takes off paper thin peels off veggies and fruit! When material science is applied to the design and manufacture of precision cutting tools for the kitchen, that’s called progress! And when they are practical and thoughtfully designed, they are every cook’s dream.
