Still Coping

Canada’s recent gold medal haul is certainly helping me cope with the polar vortex. I guess if it’s cold here we might as well get outside and skate on short tracks and get the gang together for some coed moguling.

Having neither the inclination to go upside down on skis, nor the knee cartilage to land safely on my feet, I have found my own way to come to grips with a long cold winter.

Nothing says “summer is around the corner” like a crisp Niagara Riesling.

Also, I’ve been making cooking videos and posting them on YouTube. My daughters do the filming and the eating. Check out my food videos here – because who doesn’t need more offal in their life?


Noonish in Paris

Living out my own version of Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris I had lunch in Paris – a picnic in Luxembourg garden to be exact – and the Police du Jardin were on patrol.

I believe that they are ticketing people who haven’t properly chilled their white wine

Why I drink White

I bought this fantastic wine bucket at Chat Noir in Guelph.  It has renewed my commitment to white wine because it’s fantastic and I want to show it off.  Also, white wine is tasty.

This is one great wine bucket

The Lion's Head is so cool


Remy Pannier Muscadet – everyday white

How chic is French wine?  If you can casually drop the words Chateauneuf du Pape and Pouilly Fuisse at a party you elevate your party status to “interesting” at least.

French wines are classic, like French cuffs and berets.  This dry white wine from the Loire is a great everyday white.

REMY PANNIER MUSCADET Sevre & Maine, Loire
LCBO 13821 | Price: $ 12.95
11.5%


Description
This wine is from the Loire near the Atlantic.  I love a white wine that is flinty and minerally.   This one also has some floral and citrus that balances nicely with the “geology” character.  You will wish you had somebody shucking oysters for you right now.
