Magic Bubbles - Wine-Knows: Fine Wine & Gourmet Food Journeys

Read the full post to learn about the 3 methods:  Wine-Knows: Fine Wine & Gourmet Food Journeys for the Discerning Traveler - Magic Bubbles:

"Dom Perignon was a monk at a French abbey in the 17th century.  He was also the abbey’s winemaker and is often credited (albeit erroneously) with inventing Champagne.  Legend has it that upon Perignon’s first taste of the sparkling wine he shouted, “Come quickly, brothers---I’m drinking stars!”   Today there are typically three different methods that are used to make these bubbles…some are less magical than others.  Let’s begin with the most magical."

Is Wine Really Going To The Dogs? - Wine-Knows Fine Wine & Gourmet Food Journeys

Read the full article: Is Wine Really Going To The Dogs? - Wine-Knows: Fine Wine & Gourmet Food Journeys for the Discerning Traveler:

. . . "who has ever heard of dogs being used in wineries to sniff out wine defects such as TCA (the culprit involved in a “corked” wine)?   Indeed, dogs are being used not only in wineries to find TCA, but some thinking-out-of-the-barrel folks are also using canines to identify infected wood even prior to the barrel’s construction."

"Angry Orchard, presumably, goes for explosive flavor and not actual explosions when it brews its popular hard ciders. However, it got the latter rather than the former in a recent batch. According to an FDA recall notice, bottles of Angry Orchard hard cider are at risk of spontaneous explosion."

This crazy U.S. Open setup could be perfect for Tiger Woods | For The Win

Read the full article: This crazy U.S. Open setup could be perfect for Tiger Woods | For The Win:

"But the thing is, with the course burnt to a crisp already, that potentially neutralizes Tiger’s biggest weakness. You don’t need to hit lots of drivers on dry courses because the ball rolls so far — indeed, Phil Mickelson said this week he only sees three driver holes on the entire course.

It’s essentially going to play like a dried-out British Open course, setups that Woods has played well on in the past: At Muirfield in 2013, Tiger was T-2 heading into the final round, and during the baked-out British Open of 2006, Tiger only hit one driver all week in what was probably the most masterful performance of his career."

Size Matters - Wine-Knows Travel: Fine Wine & Gourmet Food Journeys

Read the full article on wine glass size:
 Wine-Knows: Fine Wine & Gourmet Food Journeys for the Discerning Traveler: Size Matters:

"What’s in a glass?  The study showed even the most sophisticated wine drinkers don’t know.  In summary, when estimating volume people tend to place a larger emphasis on the glass’s height rather than its width, so wider glasses result in larger pours.  Authors of the study also noted that since it is easier to pour into a glass that is being held, that this ease creates over pours.

Next time I order by the glass, I will definitely keep these comments in mind especially for a red wine in a less wide glass that I think is under-poured."

Read the full article: The Golf Blog: Tiger Woods secretly working with Butch Harmon during layoff | The Golf Blog:

"Tiger Woods has been secretly working with Butch Harmon to get his game “tournament ready” for the Masters. The reason why we have not seen or heard from Tiger since he announced his leave from tournament play is that he wanted to maintain complete secrecy about his reunion with Butch Harmon, in order to avoid the “media frenzy” or hysteria that would ensue."

Mira Winery president responds to FDA warning about ocean-aging wines | Eat | Charleston City Paper

Read the full article: Mira Winery president responds to FDA warning about ocean-aging wines | Eat | Charleston City Paper:

"In keeping with the experiment, this past year Dyke says Mira went on a seven-city tour and had 18 people blind taste test the ocean-aged bottles against traditionally aged wines. The conclusion? The majority of taste-testers, he says, identified the ocean-aged as older wines, proving his point that submerging wines expedites the aging process, information he thinks could revolutionize the wine industry."

Read the full article: Why America fell out of love with golf - The Washington Post:

"Even Jack Nicklaus, perhaps the greatest golfer in history, makes a strong argument for why new players aren't flocking to golf.

"I'd like to play a game that can take place in three hours," Nicklaus told CNN in January. "I'd quite like to play a game that I can get some reasonable gratification out of very quickly -- and something that is not going to cost me an arm and a leg.""

English: An opened Jack Fruit or Artocarpus heterophyllus (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Read the entire post with photos: Wine-Knows: Fine Wine & Gourmet Food Journeys for the Discerning Traveler: Jack Fruit---the Yummiest Fruit I've Had:

"So what is jack fruit?  The flavor is an addictively delicious symphony of pineapple, banana, mango and apple.  While the fruit is used in Vietnamese desserts such as puddings and cakes, I prefer the raw version where I can taste every one of its special notes.  Perfectly ripe jack fruit is like no other fruit you will ever taste.  The texture is also unusual---somewhat fibrous, it is an excellent source of dietary fiber ( as well as high in protein, potassium and vitamin B). Jack fruit is also the largest tree-borne fruit in the world growing up to a ginormous 80 lbs, and as much as a yard in length. "

Travelers’ antibiotics may do more harm than good | Reuters

Read the entire article for more insights & recommendations:
Travelers’ antibiotics may do more harm than good | Reuters:

"People who travel to exotic locales and take along their own antibiotics are more likely to come back colonized with resistant bacteria, according to a new Finnish study.

Many travelers take along antibiotics to treat so-called “traveler’s diarrhea” - and if they have the medications along, they are likely to use them even for minor ailments, according to lead author Dr. Anu Kantele of Helsinki University Central Hospital.

In most cases this is a bad idea, she said.

“If you have mild or moderate diarrhea, you will not need antibiotics” but should drink lots of fluids and, if needed, take medication that relieves the diarrhea like loperamide (Imodium), if you brought any, she said."

Why Tiger Woods May Be Finished - Bloomberg Business

Read the full article and see the visual analysis:
Why Tiger Woods May Be Finished - Bloomberg Business:

"All his life, Tiger Woods has been chasing the number 19. That’s how many major championship wins he needs to top Jack Nicklaus and unequivocally become the greatest golfer of all time. He has just five to go, but as his game falters — he dropped out of the Farmers Insurance Open on Thursday, the 6th tournament he’s failed to complete in eight PGA starts — there’s a bigger, scarier obstacle in his way: His next birthday."

This is the end for Tiger Woods | For The Win

Read the full article:  This is the end for Tiger Woods | For The Win:

"This isn’t any fun anymore.

Watching Tiger Woods play golf used to be one of the most thrilling things to witness in all of sports. It took your breath away. It made golf cool. Woods in his prime was like Michael Jordan, almost sinister in his drive to win.

It’s not fun to watch Woods play golf anymore. It’s sad, and a little dark. It reminds us all how quickly greatness can fade."
