The latest BBQ Corner post. The hubby explores the mysterious, expensive, and delicious world of dry-aged beef. Where can you find this mystery meat in Portland? And why the heck is it so darn expensive???

Also, what wine do I consider the "dry-aged beef of the wine world"?
Found out on the blog…

"In trying to understand the changes that are happening to the wines of Cahors, and catch a glimpse into the future of the region, one needs to look no further than Jean-Luc Baldès. Baldès, the sixth generation winemaker of Clos Triguedina, is as innovative as he is a traditionalist."

My article, inspired by my trip to the Cahors region of France, was published on PALATE PRESS: The online wine magazine yesterday about a fascinating producer I met there.

Jameson asked me about BBQ, my favorite Oregon wineries and restaurants, Santorini… and how to have fun wine tasting with kids in tow. I love the questions he comes up with in this Speakeasy series. So fun!
