Caperberry Clarification

At a recent event, we partook in the caperberries that perfectly accompanied the cheese tray. Don't be confused. They are from the same plant as capers, but different seasons yield different stages of growth and, therefore, flavor. Caperberries are actually the pickled buds of the bush. Quite yum as well served all alone or in many a Mediterranean dish.
Well worth a nerdy Google  or recipe search and read more on them here.

Time To Mull

It's cold. So cold in fact, that conditions were ripe last night for snow. This seasonal shift has us switching the drinks menu and opting for something warmer. Mulled Wine. The red wine base and the eclectic spice mixture have a soul healing quality that only warm drinks embody. Here's the line-up from a recent night out. Three wines waiting for the mulling to commence.

Check out Jamie Oliver's Mulled Wine recipe.
