In which the world of culinary hedonism is explored with a cup and a half of curiosity, a heaping tablespoon of passion and a dash of clumsiness.

A note to my loyal readers (All 4 of you...)

My laptop seems to be suffering from a mental breakdown. Maybe it was the HD Merlin episodes on Hulu. Maybe it was one too many papers being pounded into it. Maybe it was that last McCroskey et al. download. Perhaps it was even the cool Skinz I bought from Singapore to dress it up in.

In any case, it has thrown in the towel on reading any kind of external drive. That means no pictures. Which means no illustrated posts. Which means each night as I cook, I cry a little inside, as I now feel cut off from the world.

I am intending to have my laptop fixed (or at least band-aided) by the end of this week. So starting next week, you can look forward to:

~ One of the reasons Autumn is my favorite season: the FOOD!
~ Home-made chicken soup
~ Savory seafood recipes
~ Festive (and light-colored-carpet-friendly) party appetizers
~ And the pièce de résistance: The Wine and The Meal: Mas de la Garrigue from Força Réal, served with herbed lamb and a red fruit salad, as suggested to me by the vineyard owner, Cyril (many thanks!)

All this and MORE, when the Accidental Chef's computer starts behaving a little less accident-prone!

As always I remain,
Yours in the love of good food and wine,
