Mouton Cadet: Bordeaux without the steep price tag:
One of the key factors behind Baron Philippe de Rothschild's success is the art of blending. Today’s Mouton Cadet is a fruitier, rounder style wine, and a good value for Bordeaux AOC wine on the market.
Cuvaison, Carneros, Napa Valley, California::
Cuvaison’s Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs come from estate-grown vines, small crops that have concentrated fruit. “ In Carneros the soils are limiting so they restrict the vigor of the vines, and so shallow that the roots are forced to struggle and look deep for water,” says winemaker Steve Rogstad.
A cluster of stars: Matariki:
Premium boutique winery from Hawkes Bay, New Zealand makes elegant, well-balanced and intense wines from its privileged Gimblett Gravels Estates.

Cologne, Germany: Long overshadowed by larger cultural capitals such as Paris, Berlin, Rome and London, Cologne is a major center of cultural treasures and diversity. Founded by the Romans about 2,000 years ago, the city's skyline is punctuated with the spires of its cathedral and of the highest concentration of Romanesque churches in Europe. It is a visitor's dream with its Museums, Galleries, shopping, food and sightseeing all at close range.


Havana Salsa and Grill of Victory:

Food writer Viviana Carballo not only shares the memorable meals she had with her delightfully eccentric family in Havana Salsa, a vibrant memoir with seventy or more recipes, but she brings back the Havana of her childhood: the warm nights, the pounding surf, the characters and the magic that all Cuban-born émigrés remember with nostalgia. A BBQ judge for the past 16 years, Bill Brohaugh takes us to the bizarre world of Competition on the Barbeque circuit with his book The Grill of Victory.
