‘Tasting Cider’ and other goodies

Cider isn’t something I get too choosy about pairing with food. If it’s nice and dry with a little funk, I’d drink it with Cheetos.

But given CIDERCRAFT Magazine editor Erin James’ brilliant effort in ‘Tasting Cider: The Cidercraft Guide to the Distinctive Flavors of North American Hard Cider,’ I feel a more careful pairing of cider with food deserves my review.


Back with Chicken

I’ve been a bit MIA in the last months.

Partly because of summer, partly because of my kitchen being renovated — by us, and partly because my health took a mid-season nose dive.

I’ve haven’t let this keep me from tracking what’s new and upcoming in the cookbook world. That would be negligent. :)

I’m back with two summer reads that transition easily to fall. One with art — hello, back to school. One on chicken — hello, curl-up-with-a-hot-drink read.
