New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc widens its scope

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is like no other wine on Earth. If you’ve had so much as a sip of this New Zealand white, then you already know this. Pungent, herbaceous, redolent of grass and gooseberries, of Key lime and passion fruit and torn tomato leaves, renowned, if that’s the word, for its...

    Daube, the classic Provençal stew, is old-school comfort food

    There are many comforting stews in this world, but my favorite, the one I go back to over and over again, is the Provençal wine and meat stew called daube. Daube (pronounced “dobe”), is earthier and more robust than its refined northern cousin, boeuf bourguignon. It is also more vegetal, with lots...

    At the Southern-style Hatchet Hall, Jonathan Gold finds good times, then takes home great leftovers

    The morning after my last meal at Hatchet Hall, I cooked steak hash with the remnants of the big rib-eye. I seared the soft, gingerbread-scented chunks of winter squash in a bit of olive oil. I let the slices of grilled sweet onion, zapped with garlic and anchovy, come to room temperature. And almost...
