Corkscrewed on Dallas Public Radio

Listen to this podcast of Robert on Think KERA (Dallas-Fort Worth) January 29, 2009.

Yes Oui Can! Freedom! Fairness! Fromage!


Dear President Obama, I know you've been fishing a lot of turds out of the pool of public policy left there by Your Petty Predecessor (YPP). So many dumb presidential orders to reverse, so little time, etc.

But as new Commander in Chef--for the sake of Americans who see access to real food as an important part of liberty--please dump the ridiculous and un-American tariffs on delicious European products including Roquefort cheese. (The real stuff made from ewes milk and aged in the caves of Roquefort-sur-Soulzon France that inspired the mad scientists of  Kraft to create Franken-fromages like: ‘Roka’ Blue Cheese Spread-- Yeccch!)

Corkscrewed in French....

Coming to a Librairie near vous....Éditions Michel Lafon has purchased the rights to distribute the French translation of Corkscrewed in France and Quebec--meaning a French version will appear in the fall of 2009.

Corkscrewed named Book of the Year on French Wines


Corkscrewed has won the 2008 Gourmand World Cookbook Award in the Category of Best Book About French Wines published in the US.

I don't know how many books fit this category (the food and wine world has astonishingly specialized categories for things) but I am glad to have the honor.

Corkscrewed in Paris


Some things only happen in Paris. And a percentage of those things are likely to happen at Juveniles, the running liquid feast run by the redoubtable Scotsman Tim Johnston.
