Here we are with a new weekly post: Two-Tip Tuesday!
Here are my tips for today:
Tip One: Hard cider.
It’s popular in pubs all over the English countryside and is the requisite drink to enjoy with crêpes in Brittany, but you rarely see hard cider here in America. This holiday season, Orchard Gate Gold J. K.’s Scrumpy might replace prosecco (which replaced Champagne a few years ago) as my “cocktail” of choice. The naturally fermented organic cider, made since the 1860s from apples grown on a family farm in Michigan, is slightly effervescent and slightly alcoholic (6%). It’s simply delightful and can be found at Surfas in Culver City. I like to drink it from a Champagne flute. So festive!
Tip Two: This pepper mill from Kuhn Rikon.
It works better than any of our wood or metal mills ever did. It doesn’t look so great on the dining table, but it should find a nice spot in your kitchen. At $19.95 it’s great as a stocking stuffer or hostess gift!
Check back next week for another tip or two!
