A few warming recipes to try this weekend... plus don't forget this week's wine homework (now with suggested stores in NYC and LA!)
Plus this week's recipes from the New York Times Dining section; Matzo Ball Soup is sounding mighty tasty, and we're trying Bittman's Pasta Puttanesca tonight (ladies' weekend at the beach - perfect.)
This weekend's wine is the 2000 Marques de Riscal Rioja Riserva, and is already getting rave reviews.
It's available in NYC at Beacon Wines & Spirits, (2120 Broadway), K& D Wines & Spirits (1366 Madison Avenue), Sherry Lehmann (679 Madison Avenue), Union Square Wines & Spirits (33 Union Square), America's Wine Shop (398 3rd Ave), and Soho Wines & Spirits (461 W Broadway).
For all of you reading out in LA, good news: Wine House (2311 Cotner Avenue) is also carrying this bottle.
