I love Thanksgiving so much. It gives me the opportunity to enjoy four of my favorite activities:
- Going to the grocery store.
- Making drinks.
- Having dinner with friends.
(No, really, going to the grocery store is one of my favorite things in the world.)
I first read about Wassail – the ancient wintertime blend of sherry (or ale, or wine) with eggs and fruit – many years ago and have been making an adaptation of the recipes I found every Thanksgiving ever since.
Anyway, Stephen Beaumont interviewed me for Nation’s Restaurant News magazine a few weeks ago, and this morning I was honored to see my name up there alongside such heroes of mine as Dale DeGroff, Tony Abou-Ganim and Natalie Bovis-Nelsen.
You’ll probably need to register (for free) in order to read the article, but it’s worth it as it contains some great quotes about autumn cocktails from Dale, Tony and Natalie.
