Wine Wednesday: Alois Lageder

Alois Lageder produces some of Alto Adige’s most ravishing wines, and has done so since 1823. You might not think of Pinot Grigio as “ravishing,” but many from Alto Adige are outstanding – in my opinion, some of Italy’s very best.

Monday Meal: Perfect Pork Chops

I really love a great pork chop, but I rarely order them in restaurants because they're almost always overcooked and dry. In part, that's because pork has such little fat these day.

Monday Meal: Beef Yakisoba

I really love the stir-fry Japanese noodle dish called yakisoba. The recipe I share with you here contains beef, but you could easily adjust the recipe to substitute chicken, pork, veggies, tofu, or just cook it up without a main protein.
