For the foodie who has everything, try ver jus.


Ver Jus means "green juice" and it is a wonderful "aha" ingredient for cooking. It is made from juicing unripened Cabernet and Merlot grapes. Ver Jus is unfermented and it would make a splendid gift for any foodie.  Both Navarro Vineyards and Terra Sonoma  sell it online, but a really good gourmet shop or wine shop might stock it as […]

Yogurt Dreams Come True


  I have a thing for yogurt, really good thick yogurt like they have in France.  Greek-style yogurt is pretty excellent, but this water buffalo yogurt from Vermont is just off the charts.  I will not pretend to know the chemistry of water buffalo milk versus cow milk; but the difference is clearly apparent in […]
