…its tofu, lentils and quinoa, this might not be such a big deal. But for a meat and potatoes Irish American family, no meat was a big sacrifice. I'm not sure exactly what fish dishes were served as an alternative, but whatever they were gave seafood a bad name. I suspect it tended to be bland and overcooked. When my folks set out on their own, fish was the last thing they wanted to be having for supper. So I grew up rarely eating seafood.

Knowing the health benefits of fish, I've set …

"Most of the apples we work with are American heirloom varietals, as early Americans typically cultivated specific apple varietals more for hard cider than eating (averaging 52 gallons of cider consumption annually per capita). Unfortunately with the rise of monoculture these varietals are grown by only the most passionate orchardists committed to preserving our countries unique apple bio-diversity. When creating our blends we group our cider apples into four main types according to the …

A wonderful, salty, light and fresh Manzanilla Sherry with fruit sourced from a single vineyard. Aged for 12 years in American oak casks, the palate has good depth of flavour yet remains fresh thanks to that inexplicable saline quality.

…reducing ageing time for Reservas, but here the wine has had its full six years in American oak, contemplating its future in the famously cob-webbed cellars, Stygian avant la letter.

The blend, as usual, is made from three quarters Tempranillo with the balance shared evenly between Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo. During the ageing process, racking has taken place twice every year. Patience has been rewarded by a marvellously supple, complex and subtle wine, its fruit descriptors wreathed …

…E E Cummings the finest American poet? We can debate that, but certainly no study of American poets is complete without a review of his work; the same can be said of the wines of Domaine Breliere.

Rully is mostly known for white and the vineyards are 2/3rds white but when a Rully red works there is nothing like it in Burgundy. The 2012 Domaine Breliere Rully 1er Cru " Les Preaux", which can be had for as little as $ 29.99 on the 6-pack is the red Rully I have always …

Ever since Bugsy Siegel opened the Flamingo Hotel in 1946 and launched the Las Vegas Strip, gambling has held a tenuous position in American life, suggesting glamour, wealth, and corruption all at once.

Chances are you've already assumed that the victim was young (correct) and black (correct). You may also have assumed that the murder didn't take place in a quiet residential neighborhood (incorrect), and that Marquis was in a gang (also incorrect). It's a comforting shortcut to pigeonhole the victims of the thousands of gun murders that take place in American

Wente is a notablewinery in the history of American winemaking. Through the late 1800's and early 1900's, thanks to the efforts of Carl's son, Ernest, the Wentes planted a number of different varieties of Chardonnay. Through experimentation and crossbreeding with both domestic and French vines, the Wente chardonnay grape clone emerged. Wente released their first varietally labeled Chardonnay (along with Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc) in 1936. Neighbors of the …
