  • Maggi's been around forever; knew it back from one of my grandmothers before I ever even went off to college. Have since encountered their bouillon cubes in almost *every* country I've been to, and I've been to a lot. Plus plenty of other universal foods and aids like those cubes and soups and sometimes that sauce, but also local delicacies that... Read More

  • The key to the Asparagus pairing is to serve it blanched in a salad. That way a number of light/medium bodied reds would work well. Trousseau Gris, Mourvèdre, Rosé of Grenache...The Artichoke, or Avocado as Al puts it, really isn't that hard for us because we serve it with Mayonnaise so we need something with some acidity and tannin to cut throu...

  • You can write a book about what to cook during the summer time, and I almost complete an entire cookbook each season, but sometimes I’m in such a rush to make the great dishes that i love that I , almost, forget to cover the basics. With just a few weeks left of summer, but months left for farm fresh veggies and grilling, today I want to turn my... Read More

  • I am having some friends over for dinner.  I am making this dish that I really like- very simple, but tastes great.  It's pork chops browned in garlic and olive oil, then add coarsely chopped red bell pepper, mushrooms, and a few tbs of tomato paste in white wine.  Then it all simmers for 40min or so.  I plan to serve it with a side of orzo with...
