Here's a peek at some of the best stuff happening at The Kitchn a year ago this week. There were some very popular posts published this time a year ago: the very best cheap Cabernet Sauvignon (a list we've referred to over and over again this year), a manifesto on how to make a wedding cake, margaritas made with beer (or strawberries), a very cool little Japanese gadget, a video review of a salad spinner, and recipes for panna cotta and homemade bubble gum, plus ideas for leftover egg whites.
• How to choose good cheap wine - Cabernet Sauvignon, plus a website for consolidating wine reviews.
• Throw an Iron Chef dinner party!
• In season: Lita squash
• How to make your own wedding cake (without losing your mind).
• Book review: Local Bread by Daniel Leader.
