As wine connoisseurship evolves, I look toward developing ways to express the aspects of wine I love the most. I recognize that wine is a product of nature and science; my goal is as natural as can be: to help make the connection between joy of taste and the bountiful pleasures of life.”

Build me a woman 10 feet tall

What is it about finger foods? ….From bbq potato chips to sushi, and from burritos to chicken wings- im sure all of you would agree, there is something undeniably appealing about eating with your hands. Im not sure what it is..perhaps some sort of primordial impulse or may be it’s a subconscious control trip?? Im truly and honestly not sure but I can tell you that for me, eating with my hands typically means monstrous, otherworldly pleasure sessions. Far outnumbering the opportunities for a similar food high, straws, mugs and flatware feel like a hurdle as often as not. Sheeesh, now that im writing this,.. the list of hand worthy edibles is growing and growing by the second,…corn dogs, cookies, chocolate bars, peanut butter, jelly and banana sandwiches,…pop corn, hand cut big eye tuna belly handroll with apple, jalapeno flesh, caviar and egg yolk,.. a chunk of cheese, … apple for Christ’s sake!,..a wedge of watermelon, a fig,….. a popsicle, ice cream cone,…not a cup, a fritter of any kind,… a boiled egg, ..cant forget grapes,… and way up on the list, …for many years running, ..there’s been a thinning at the heights, a clearing and yielding to the two best of the best faves. One I crave but cant do much of anything about. The other is “working”,…I mean working like a sauce,.. in a pan,… on a cramped line, on a really busy night. It’s something I can fashion,..something that has an end within range, something expanding, and standing on jah solid rock!

like what…? tacos, fajitas, guacamole, tasty masa, tostadas, radishes, sprouts, seeds, cold beer and tequila

the cesarean is not official but will go down at some point shortly after the 15th of October …The Original EL Taco will be all that and more. While Ecco and La Tavola are without questions boys,..This one is all girl..
