"I’ve been a cook and writer my whole life. I wrote my first original recipe and mailed it to a TV show when I was four years old. I was lucky enough to have been raised by one of those legendary Southern grandmothers who cooked with great skill and no recipes. Even when my cooking veered drastically away from Southern for a few years, she was always open to what I prepared and would taste anything."

Pinot Gris, Waipara, New Zealand

Pinot Gris from New Zealand is set to become the next ‘it’ grape, next to Sauvignon Blanc. They produce a very floral style, intensely flavored with citrus and orchard fruits. The waxy honeyed texture will go well with the sweetness of butterbeans.
