  • Nancy wrote a new blog post: Rinse with Wine Not Water   3 weeks, 1 day ago · View

    When you are at a wine tasting event, do you enjoy the aroma and taste of chlorine infiltrating your wine? If not, then please stop rinsing your glass with that tap water (which is what is in those pitchers on the table) between each taste! Not to mention, you’re diluting the wine you’re trying to [...]

  • Nancy wrote a new blog post: 5 Tips for a Festive Table   2 months ago · View

    ThumbnailWhile shopping at Bed Bath and Beyond I overheard a soon-to-be-bride being assisted with her bridal registry. The shop clerk asked, “Would you like to register for any table linens?” The reply was a blunt, “No.” A little part of me died inside. I could never pass up such an opportunity. Decorating the table is one [...]

    Thumbnail The squash blossoms at the local farmers market this summer have been tempting me each week as I walk by. There’s just something about their delicate nature and vivid orange hue. They look the way summer should taste. However, not having cooked with them before I wasn’t sure what I would do with them. Knowing that they [...]

    Thumbnail Remember the Mystery Date game? The premise was for the player to collect enough cards in order to be ready for the date that will appear when she opens the door. The cards identify different components of an outfit. Naturally, each outfit corresponds to one of four dating scenarios including the formal dance date, bowling [...]

  • Nancy wrote a new blog post: Balsamic Roasted Strawberries and Bubbles   1 year, 7 months ago · View

    Thumbnail This recipe comes from my food and wine pairing instructor, Chef Lenny Rede with a slight tweak on my part. On the night he served this dish in class, these strawberries were the rich, syrupy contrast to fluffy, creamy desserts  paired with bubbles. When I returned from a recent trip to Oregon with a bottle of [...]

    Thumbnail As we hustle down the hallway of the hotel a warning is shouted at the masses, “Get on a bus NOW! THE BUSES ARE ABOUT TO LEAVE!!” The sense of urgency makes me feel like we are on a ship that just ran into an iceberg and we’ll be doomed if we don’t save ourselves [...]

    Thumbnail I recently became acquainted with the author of the blog Chasing Jen . Documented on the blog is a delightful approach to pairing wine with fried chicken . One wine – the Coenobium Bianco – paired with six different flavor profiles of fried chicken, that is! Consider me intrigued.

    Thumbnail It’s always a pleasure to dine at a restaurant with a nice wine list. However, if that wine list features 5,000 bottles, how do you go about picking just one for dinner? Maybe it’s time to try something new and adventurous. Or you might prefer to stick with the tried and true.  I suggest you [...]

  • Nancy wrote a new blog post: The Food for Ken Wright’s Wine   1 year, 9 months ago · View

    Thumbnail A great food and wine pairing can be magical! Such a match takes each component to the next level. On the other hand, a poor combination can make the wine taste nasty. That’s why I’m often surprised when a winery hosts an event where something like jalapeno artichoke dip is served. Sure, it’s inexpensive to [...]
