Buying a bottle of brandy for someone this Holiday Season? From the budding amateur to seasoned Cognac-aficionado the Torres brandies will impress the palate and the pocketbook alike!

Twice voted "THE BEST Brandy in the World" in less than 10 years this portfolio is one of my absolute favorite producers in the world and merits your time and attention :)

Looking for dinner ideas?

Try using #GF #glutenfree breadcrumbs to perk-up your fried chicken! It's a fact that gluten-free breadcrumbs retain less moisture which, in a piece of bread, can spell distaster - but in breading is perfect! Crispy, crunchy exterior yields dramatically moister interior... now all you have to decide how you want to season it! 

I use a blend of oregano, smoked paprika and freshly ground black pepper. Brilliant if you go old-school and soak your chicken for 24 hours in buttermilk first :) and absolutely divine with any of these 90+point, $20 (range) wines.

My new article is a (pardon the pun) "sobering" look at how you can have more QUALITY time with friends and loved ones on a daily basis! Don't wait - carpe diem isn't just a nice idea - it's a key to happiness... seize the moment! Make the time and share a meal with someone you care about :)

Happy New Year everyone!
