In response to yesterday’s post about Chef Chad Martin‘s (of Hotel St. Germain) contribution to the Chefs at Home cookbook, one commenter suggested we provide the recipe. Great idea!
Luckily, Chad’s PR people were more than happy to oblige. Let me know how it goes.

It’s no secret that we like drinking on the job as much as we like swearing in our cubicles. And while we feel sorry for those of you who must stay sober during the workday, we’ve found a loophole destined to give you a passable simulation. Newly opened St. John’s Wood in Uptown inhabits what used to be a law office—with stone columns, wood floors, the works—and comes sort of close to replicating the post-two-martini-lunch. Which is not very close at all. But hey, at least we tried.
It is no secret that Miner Family Vineyards is one of my favorite Napa Valley producers, and write about them often. I like just about everything they do, and love a few – namely their elegant Wild Yeast Chardonnay, bold Stagecoach Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, and their robust Bordeaux blend, Oracle. I often serve their Stagecoach Vineyard Merlot to change the opinion of people who won’t drink Merlot as Miner’s is earthy, well structured and beautifully complex.
Tuesday, January 18th owner Dave Miner will be in town tasting at the Sigel’s-Elite on Fitzhugh tasting through some of his current releases, including those noted above as well as his vibrant, crisp and entirely too drinkable Viognier, Napa Valley Chardonnay and Gibson Ranch Sangiovese. Dave will be there from 5pm-7pm and Sigel’s will offer special discounts on the wine after the tasting. Stay in the area for dinner and head over to Abraham Salum’splace across the street. The tasting at Sigel’s is free, but you need reservations, available at 214/635-3162
There are some folks up here on the 21st floor—I’m thinking of a certain Creative Director who used yesterday’s snow flurries as an excuse to stay home and whip up a simple boeuf bourguignon—who have mad skills in the kitchen. For them, and people who want to be more like them, Chef/Owner Mansour Gorji of Canary by Gorji is stepping up to the plate to share some of his own mad skills on Jan. 17 in a cooking class cleverly disguised as a three-course wine dinner.
