Making wine easier to understand one post at a time.

Delicious recipes with a side of humor.

Today we will take you through the sexy world of wine colors (red, white, rose’, orange). Sexy you ask?

Yes, even borderline risqué, filled with tons of skin contact (seriously) and heat (for some). We even touch on the age-old question “is longer always better?”

You have been invited to a formal wine tasting for work. What do you do? Panic? Frantically begin smelling fruits, tennis ball cans, and freshly cut garden hoses? (hey, they said it in a movie)

No.

All you need is LSD. Not that LSD…our 3 step wine tasting process: Look, Spiral, Drink.

This lip smacking, tongue tingling salt and pepper squid is so addictive, your buddies will think it is laced in crack!​

The key is getting your hands on some Sichuan peppercorns,  usually located in a dingy alleyway behind your local Asian Grocery store…..However I think they also sell them inside, but double the price, your choice!

Have you ever gone to a winery for a tasting and been surprised that there is more to it than just showing up and getting free booze?

In many respects, visiting a cellar door or tasting room is just like visiting a friends baby. What do you do? Shake its hand? What if it is ugly?

This Mediterranean Grain Salad is filled with fresh ingredients, lots of chewy delicious grains, that will have your system humming in no time!

Perfect as a side dish, a main course, or for taking with you to a house party where the cheap ass host asked you to bring one dish. On second thought, fuck sharing this little beauty with those tight ass friends!

Feel free to add in some grilled chicken or shrimp if you’d like, or just serve it meatless as is.  I promise, it’s a keeper….unlike my first two wives.

Have you ever been in a wine shop or looking at a wine menu, noticed that the wines are separated into “New World” and “Old World” sections, and wondered what the hell was going on?​

Are new world wines like “New Age” religions? Does it mean some hippies invented them in the ’70s and some cults drink them today? Do old world wines dive into the religious debate landing in the “earth is 10 thousand years old” camp?

Well, we did, so we decided to get to the bottom of it, and our findings may surprise you!

A recipe by Justin Moran… (My only food gig from my time on Masterchef).

What I’m eating today: Fuck yeah, super easy fish cakes. Like always buy the best produce you can afford

Side note, that usually doesn’t come from your local supermarket, so buy your gear from your local independent retailer who cares about what they sell. (Same philosophy doesn’t apply to your local drug dealer!)…
