Eat, (Drink), Pray & Love
Eat– June was an all I can eat and drink month! Starting with my recent addiction to the James Beard Foundation dinners, where chefs from all over the Nation present their craft with an exquisite 6-course menu paired with (almost always) great wine. A cocktail hour with hour d’oeurves and libations such as a Mead from Georgia kick off the feast.
(Drink)– Equally dangerous, all the wine festivals held this June got me on a spin. First the launching party of the Sud de France Festival and the new wines from the Languedoc-Roussillon I put on the wine list. Then Vinho Verde Week, one of my favorite light white wines for the heat followed by Paul Grieco’s massive campaign; his Summer of Riesling. 94 days to taste the Riesling grape and its wines widely available all over Manhattan. And if that wasn’t enough, 31 days of Riesling runs through July.
Pray– I just sat for my first exam of the WSET Diploma level. Most of the time I wondered what I was thinking. I couldn’t run so I prayed.
Love– welcome back Schatzi!
