So my wife has really been getting back into cooking lately. So much so that she is wanting to join the Deuce here at UTGT and write about her culinary exploits. I know what you’re thinking. But I am fairly comfortable in her becoming a contributor here. I have often thought of collaborating on fiction with her, yet something always gets in the way. Who knows, maybe WE will pen the next great American novel, and not just me.
I remember when we first got together, she was always cooking, whether it was a simple mac-n-cheese, or her infamous Chicken Oregano. And despite all my years working in restaurants, I would be lost in the kitchen if it weren’t for her.
So coming soon, Mrs. Deuce will begin adding her humor and “saner” perspective to this blog. As I always say, everything needs a little more estrogen.
Speaking of which, Sho’Nuff dropped by with three fantastic Chablis from Jean-Marc Brocard (mind you, these samples were 2nd day):
Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis Sainte-Claire 2012. Grade=Very Good. Though fading slightly, it still demonstrates incredible acidity amidst a construct of Meyer lemon, green apple skin, mineral and lime.
Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis 1er Cru Vau de Vey 2011. Grade=Outstanding. Supple acidity bathes an ocean of lemons and limes, hints of chalky mineral, and light stone fruit notes.
Jean-Marc Brocard Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos 2010. Grade=Amazing. Simply gorgeous. Chalky minerals, saline undertones, hints of apple, pear and citrus and finishing clean and crisp. Possesses the potential to age well past a decade.
