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!) • Amber's Sinus-Clearing Vegan Chili • Jane's Curative White Bean Soup 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.
