You are what you eat & drink


Wednesday Whine

Yes, I know it’s Thursday… again.

I’ll try again next week to get it right.

This week’s peek into my wine rack I found two bottles of the same wine.

Rouge de France

Rouge de France

Cuvée Brouchard Aîné

Rouge de France

Grape types: A blend based mainly on  Syrah and Gamay.

Food pairings: Ideal with red meats, grilled meats, spicy dishes, wild game and cream cheeses.

Source: Brouchard Aîné for more info

My view: Fits in the pocket R$25 and tastes good with BBQ, that’s why I bought another two bottles.

I can’t be wrong, because this wine is considered the ‘ambassador’ of Cuvée Brouchard.

Seattle Loves Chai: The Chai Normandy Cocktail

Originally posted on Never Dry In Seattle:

I like to think of myself as a cocktail genius… I like to think I can just play around with ingredients and come up with the next big thing and I’ll end up on stage at Tales of the Cocktail accepting a “Best Cocktail of All Time” award…

This delusion of grandeur has been proven wrong on many occasions… it’s not even close to true.  It might even be the opposite of true.

But, lets back up a bit… I love Chai tea, it’s hugely popular in the area and there are some great places offering chai in Seattle.  However, there aren’t a ton of great chai tea cocktails at local bars.  So naturally, being the alleged cocktail genius that I am, I made some Chai infused vodka and started playing around with it.  I was inspired by  Woodinville’s own Project V Distillery (and sausage company?) after having their product…

Wednesday Whine

Missed yesterday, I was having mouse issues…

Peeping into my wine rack.

This is another that didn’t last long in the rack.

Convento da Serra – White 2009

Another wine from the Alentejo region in southern Portugal.

Grape types: Fernão Pires, Rabo de Ovelha and Roupeiro

My view: Damned fine wine, looking for more.

On-line wine sellers note: Aroma muito fresco e limonado, denotando a juventude do vinho.  (Very fresh aroma, lemon, denoting a young wine).

Price: R$27 ($12)

How stuffed up is that?

Being Easter week, I thought it would be nice to post about Easter food.

So I googled ‘Easter food’

Yup, I got chocolate Easter eggs!

This is how stupid Google is, chocolate Easter eggs are NOT food.

Now this looks like food, Ukranian Easter Food…
