Her March 26th column was on Champagne and how "you're better off seeking out non-vintages from individual growers rather than carefully marketed bubbly from big names."

Having leftovers of smoked salmon post Easter sunday, I wondered how long you could safely keep it.
I asked Eric, a sous-chef. His answer was at least a good 2 weeks if it is properly refrigerated.
So after making farfalle with smoked salmon and fresh mozzarella for Lunch on Monday, today's Lunch will be baby spinach and smoked salmon salad.
I was scratching my head trying to remember songs or bands with an EASTER twist to them.
All i could come up with was the english band EASTERHOUSE.
Send me your suggestions.
How many times have you read a recipe or listened to the specials in a restaurant and got lost while going through or listening to the list of ingredients?
It can get so busy it makes you feel dizzy or lost.
We sometimes seem to forget that simple ingredients can make a nice meal.
Another case of 'I want more' i guess.
While logging on Rhapsody last week, I found out New Order had a new single, 'Krafty'.
Since then it has been a top 5 favorite on my playlist.
The cover reminds me of 'Autobahn' from Kraftwerk.
The song itself is very catchy , vintage New Order at its best.
I just found this wine a week ago.
The Castano 2003 from Spain is a Monastrell Red Yecla Wine.
It is a medium bodied wine.
I tend to buy new wines based on the distributer/importer.
This one is an Eric Solomon- European Cellars Selection.
I kinda trust some of these guys like you trust a record label to put out interesting music.
At around $8.00 it is a bargain.
The restaurant were I work when I am not tending to Montclair Concierges, Napa Valley Grille (Paramus, New Jersey) carries only American Wines(except for Champagne obviously), almost all from California so when I buy wine at retail I tend to buy selections from other countries than the US
