What We're Drinking

 

One of the most serious English Sparkling producers. This historic estate has been in the Goring family since 1743. The tiny 16-acre vineyard is close-planted on a steep south-facing chalk escarpment described as 'similar to the Côte des Blancs' in Champagne. The fruit is picked very selectively with quality being the absolute focus. The grapes are pressed gently using a traditional Coquard press. After three years on the lees this wine, composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay & 22% Pinot Meunier, is hand disgorged and balanced with a minimal dosage of just 4g/L. It has a fine counterbalance between toasty richness and power from the wines élevage in Burgundian French Oak barrels, with racy acidity, tension and a focused chalky minerality.

Foodwoolf's Bourbon-Soaked Cherries

Photo by Brooke Burton of Food WoolfRemember the old axiom "Waste not, want not?" Well it's especially true when talking about your farmers' markert haul. Blueberries like tart poprocks, tomatoes so sweet you finally understand why they're considered a fruit and figs with paper-thin skins are incredibly perishable. But you can prolong the deliciousness of summer's fleeting flavors with time's tastiest preservative: booze.

Our dear friend Brooke has been fiddling around in the kitchen again, and this time instead of mixing the Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel Bourbon into a cocktail, she's given it a new life. Read more about Brooke's Bourbon-Soaked Cherries and learn how to make your own on Food Woolf...

What a beautiful introduction! I highly recommend this preparation for anyone that loves the farmers market and Bourbon. Combine the finds of the local market (in my case, the Hollywood Market) and bottles from K&L and you get a tasty combination!
