FINGER FIGHTING WITH THE COUNT OF CHARM

Every now and again I am lucky enough to be extended an unusual invite. One which immerses me in a pool of talent and knowledge crafted over generations.

DB9 DELIGHTS

What better way to arrive for a dinner built around the wines consumed by James Bond in “Goldfinger” than an Aston Martin.

Super duper tuscan wine dinner

Is it a wise idea to hand a loaded rifle to a drunken (albeit very well dressed) man? If the wine is sublime and the suit is snazzy, and of course its all within the right context, the answer is always YES!

AND COUNTING

I try to be generous. I skip a few days here and there. I don’t count them. I’m sure there are days when I was sick, or when there was no gin. In the interest of fairness, I should shave a few days off each year for that.

A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN

Considering how much bubbly (and specifically Krug) I’ve guzzled down in the last few years, months, weeks, days... I should know a little bit more about the special suds, but alas my expertise in the subject is somewhat limited to just consumption.

Old School Cocktails

Old school also translates better with cocktails. Unless you have a Scottsman Nugget Ice Maker or a Snoopy Snow Cone Machine from the 80’s, the best crushed ice for highball and swizzle cocktails is made by hand in a Lewis Bag.

Biserno:
Super Duper Tuscan

Getting to Biserno is an exercise in orienteering. And not just because of the dirt roads, streams and cypress lined tracks which lead you there. Because its not on the GPS.
