If you live in hardiness zones 8-10—the southern United States—and have a spot with full sun, you can grow your own tea with plants from Burpee. One individual commenting on the Burpee website had success in Zone 6. Here’s the USDA map of hardiness zones. Tea, Camellia sinensis, is a perennial plant. The same plant […]

PRODUCT: A New Manual Coffee Grinder

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 12:58:36 +0000

Everything is cyclical, even mundane household appliances like the coffee grinder. In centuries past, coffee beans were ground manually. Depending on your age, your great-grandmother ground beans in a rectangular wood or metal mill (or combination) with a ceramic burr. The grains fell into a drawer underneath the mechanism. But technology marches on: first to […]

TIP OF THE DAY: Best Foods To Pair With Rosé Wines

Sat, 10 Jun 2017 12:59:17 +0000

June 10th is National Rosé Day. Unlike Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and the other grape varietals, there is no “rosé grape.” Rosé (French for pink) wine can be made from any variety of red grape. As a result, the styles and flavors from different wine-making regions vary widely. The pink color occurs is when the red […]

FOOD FUN: Cheese Omakase, A Cheese Tasting Dinner

Sun, 04 Jun 2017 14:30:03 +0000

Like sushi? Like cheese? In honor of National Cheese Day, June 4th, combine them both. We don’t mean the Philadelphia roll, the only mainstream sushi with cheese (Philadelphia cream cheese and smoked salmon, to be precise. But last year, Rachel Freier, a cheese monger at Murray’s Cheese Bar in Greenwich Village, created a whimsical yet […]
