make wine, not dolmas

the integrity chronicles continues. food-wise, this chef, Koh Kikuchi, has it. Koh says: “You can’t just open a can and call it cooking.”
he once made the most amazing ramen from a package for me by doing something to the noodles, including “blanching it for a few seconds to get rid of the machine oil.” (read a portion of my profile on Koh).
wine-wise, Sean Thackrey has my vote. watch an interview where he says “these same grapes went to Gallo before I started buying them” and see some of his really old books. hey! it’s all about what you do, not what you buy. (plus all his wines are named after bodies in space.)
