Fresh herbs are one of the easiest ways to take your cooking from boring to fine dining. But if you are anything like me, the ones that I buy at the store get forgotten in the back of the fridge and turn into a gross mess.
I love a plate wall. Great plates feel like works of art to me, so elevating (literally and figuratively) them to the level of traditional wall art has always felt right.
Forget purchasing a wine spout, a Brandeis University biophysicist has done the impossible by inventing a wine bottle that does not drip. Daniel Perlman designed a bottle that features two-millimeter groove just below the tip which catches the droplets…
Meanwhile why you wait, the best way to avoid drips down the neck of the bottle is a simple two-part process.
1. Do not fully remove the foil capsule from the top of the wine bottle. Instead, cut the capsule below the lip at the top of the bottleneck; that cut foil ridge will catch most minor trips.
2. Do the “handshake pour” by extending your hand with the bottles label facing your guest, pour wine with a downward tilt of the wrist, then tilt your hand back up while twisting the bottle clockwise to prevent drips. Catch any stray drips on the bottle with a clean cloth.
