(doesn't this look lonely?)
Food without wine makes the baby Bacchus cry. Thankfully, Sir Andrew of Spittoon, is challenging all foodies and winos to try their hands at d.i.y sommelier-ing. "Combinations" is the blogosphere wine & food pairing challenge he's cooked up. And he's not going easy on us landlubbers. Ya'll have until April 24 to submit a wine pairing (which you've actually tried with his recipe) for m m mackerel & rhubarb sauce. Go on, give it a go - and report back.
What's better than one wine? How about fiddy/five-o/half a C note/- wines? Long Island Lenn is playing the role of ambitious oenophile - he's going for 50 wines in 50 weeks. "Bah. Big deal," you say? We're not talking any 50 wines; we're talking 50 wines from all 50 U.S. states. Now that is what I call ambition. Hey, Lenn, I hear that Hawaiian "King Kamehamea" Cabernet is the shizzle. Mahalo!
