Riesling Italico!

You check one of the my past blog posts on Riesling Italico, the unrelated grape to Riesling that is sort of similar enough to confuse our wine forefathers but probably not close enough to warrant it's unfortunate duplicate name. Wines in Italy can still be labeled simply as Riesling on the front label without regard to which Riesling it is. This is the only 100% Riesling Italico I have had from Bologna.

Rome, Byzantium, Austria and Italy.

Trieste has been a “Border City” for its entire existence with each empire leaving influences on the Architecture and food. From being in the center of the Roman Empire till it became a northern port city for Byzantium. The city later pledged allegiance to the Austrian monarchy in a clever attempt to remain independent from it's closer rivals (Venice). It slowly gained influences of being a gem in the Austro-Hungarian realm seen today. The citizens of the city were extremely divided if to support the new concept of “Italy” or to remain with the old Central European power. Lastly it became part of Italy, and the city lost many lawyers and German or Hungarian speaking intellectuals but gained an appreciation for wine.

Collio!

The first time I fell in love with Italian wines was when I tasted Friulian whites during a trade tasting in Boston. After slugging through Oaky Cabs and Inky Tempranillos, these whites from Northern Italy just shined through everything else. They had this precision that cut through everything else, and they were fun to read about. The Friulian whites include amazing Chardonnays but also native grapes with wacky names like Ribolla Gialla. You can have them by themselves, or in interesting blends. In Collio, outside of Trieste they have a classic blend of Friulano, Malvasia Istriana & Ribolla Gialla.

Vallania!

A treat to taste the wines of Vigneto delle Terre Rosse. The early planters of Cabernet in the Bologna hills. Post on the blog soon of how the locals thought they were crazy! .

Land of Balsamico!

Spilamberto is the heart of true Balsamico production. The area is littered with families making 25 year old Balsamico from generations old barrels!

Have we lost our connection to food, how it is made, the process that creates the result?

Matzah Ball Soup!

Or called קניידלעך‎ / Kneidlach in Yiddish, are supremely delicious dumplings made from the mushed Matzah bread. They are basically always served in chicken soup, though now it is trendy to make Matzah ball Ramen!

Layered Matzah Pizza!

This crunchy bread lends itself perfectly for making easy Pizzas. We went all out and stacked these Matzahs with Mozzarella, Parmigiano-Reggiano, Cherry Tomato sauce, Oregano & fresh Parsley!

Baltic Dubbel?! Around 300 years ago, British Beers started to begin being made for export. Porter beers had to be made into robust styles with even 10 percent alcohol to make the journey by ship. Hence, like the Extra hopped India Pale Ale, which was initially made to last the journey to India, Baltic porter gets its name from a style intended to leave for the cold Baltic ports. This is made in Holland, and combines this tradition with hefty Dubbel style!

המן טאַשען Hamantashen

This is a typical filled cookie baked by Jewish families during the festival of Purim, a celebration remembering the saving of the Jewish people during the reign of the Babylonian Empire. Today many people say the cornered cookies resemble the ear of “Haman” the Evil protagonist of the story, however they previously may have been referenced his pockets being filled, though there is also mention he wore a 3-cornered hat! Recent research shows that it may have been made to resemble a gambling dice used around 2500 years ago in Babylon! .

De Ranke Noir De Dottignies

I only drink Belgian Strong Ales when it is snowing. It is the inky, oak Napa Cab of Belgian beers. They taste strong, over the top, rich and alcoholic! It is simply too much, but when it is cold, and you need some warming up it is exactly what is needed.

Jenever, Genièvre, Genever, Peket!

Before Gin ever existed, Jenever was King! It was actually this Dutch spirit that was once the main distilled beverages being exported by the Dutch out to the UK and the New World. After the English were drinking for many years they started to make their own version under the Anglicized name “Gin” but in a simpler Juniper forward style.

Jenever is from a blend of grains and many different botanicals as well as infusions. It makes many spirits productions seem simple. Oh, and it is aged sometimes!

There are still hundred years old distilleries in the heart of Amsterdam!

This is young (un-or lightly aged) version of Jenever. It is great in cocktails subbing out Gin or even with many other variations. .

Pigeon Pie!

This might be one of my new favorite things to eat! Once considered a delicacy across Europe, it became common in much of Eastern United states and Canada before the extinction of the Carrier Pigeon (and the disappearance of much of Americana cuisine). This was based on an Austro-Hungarian recipe by #tonnochef .

The very first, OG Torino VERMOUTH!

Though humans have been infusing herbs into wine for probably as long as wine has existed itself, Carpano in Turin in 1786, is the first example of what we now call Vermouth. As many of our beloved beverages, it started as a medicinal minded drink and was drunk as is for quite some time. Now it is almost only thought of as a component of cocktails, however this noble tipple can drink on its own!

This Vermouth is often described as a red vermouth in cocktails recipes, but it is from a white wine base, colored due to infusions and intentional oxidation.

It is currently owned by the Fernet-Branca company if Milan.

This is one of the best beer bars in the world. They were doing this before beer bars were a thing. Their tap list is full of unicorns and the next best beer you havent had yet. They had just tapped the keg of "Zundert" the second Trappist brewery in Holland, and it was the first time the brewery had released a keg! (and they had Cantillon!)
