Gerry Dawes & Friends, WPWL, Pawling Public Radio October 9, 2018. My in-studio guest was the great John Gilman, Publisher of View From The Cellar.
Westchester Magazine ran a feature article on John Gilman a few years ago with this quote. “See this man,” said Olivier Krug, who represents the sixth generation of his family to run the formidable Krug Champagne house, at a party launching the brand’s newest vintage, “He knows more about wine than anybody else in the world.”

My experiences with this classic Brandy warming technique was in the early 1970s.  I would see it repeated on a few other occasions, usually in Sevilla and usually when I specifically requested it, but I had none seen this done for decades until I took Chefs Ryan McIlwraith and Joel Ehrlich (Bellota and Barcina, San Francisco) on an exploratory gastronomic and wine trip around Spain in 2014 prior to the opening of Bellota.  One of my old haunts in Madrid, the classic Chocolatería San Ginés had changed hands and no longer served good Brandies de Jerez, with which I used to spike the chocolate that I dipped my churros in.  With a little research, I discovered Churrería-Chocolatería Los Artesanos 1902, which is just a couple of blocks from  Chocolatería San Ginés, is less mobbed and has a full bar, plus the chocolate and churros are just as good and the Brandy service is terrific.
