Every Glass is an Adventure, A Retreat to a New Place

We can all use a retreat from this busy world we live in. From our busy schedules and endless to-do lists, to our constant desire to stay on top of things, we often forget to sit back, relax, and remember why we work so hard. There is evidence that momentary escapes and adventures can bring a sense of calm and joy, and provide a regular equilibrium to our busy lives. For me, this retreat can often be found in a glass of wine. How, you might ask, can a glass of wine provide a momentary... Full Post >

After the browns and oranges that rein in the Fall and carry over into the Winter, the Spring menu is one of the most exciting for us in the kitchen to plan. Some ingredients say Spring, like strawberries, morel mushrooms and ramps. Until local produce, like strawberries, hits peak season and makes its way into our kitchen, we incorporate ingredients from all over the United... Full Post >

Start with tempered chocolate at 33 degrees Celsius, known as working temperature in the kitchen, and spread on acetate strips. Why acetate? "Chocolate crystals will mimic whatever surface you place it on," says Emma. "The acetate is shiny which gives the final product a beautiful sheen." Once the chocolate is nice and... Full Post >

Kanonkop Estate Wine Dinner

We live in the most exciting time to be a wine enthusiast in the history of the world. Some may say that this is a bold statement but the reality is, there has never been such high quality wine coming from so many regions all over the world. In the eighteenth century, when one mentioned world class wine there was just Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne and Rhein Riesling. Even a hundred years ago the conversation was still focused on those areas. Now the world is our oenological oyster and there are... Full Post >
