Happy Father's Day!
To all you fathers out there, Happy Father's Day! I'm in Virginia celebrating with my father, The Wine Lover. It's a beautiful day in Floyd - breezy, not too hot. We'll be cooking up a feast tonight - surf and turf style - with grilled filet mignon & lobster tails. But the best treat of the evening will come from the cellar. We're digging deep and opening up a 1983 Chateau Margaux, a wine that Robert Parker called, "breathtaking" and scored with 96 points. One of the big boys of Bordeaux, I'm excited to try this wine for the first time. The Wine Lover has been aging it for years, so it's extra special. It should be aged enough to be drinking beautifully now. Afterwards, we'll be sipping one of my favorite wines, Chateau d'Yquem, the best sauternes in the world if you ask me!
So enjoy your Sundays! And check in this week. I have lots of great recipes cooked up!
