Chutzpah in the Cellar

As husband-in-chief of the very talented chef that maintains this food blog, my usual contributions to Chutzpah in the Kitchen consist of snapping iPhone photos, cutting vegetables, and occasionally over-stirring the pot.

With Cayla’s gracious support, that’s about to change!

Think of this page as a digital cellar. As a non-shicker who likes the occasional glass of wine or single malt scotch, this is a running list of scotches and wines that I enjoy.

Scotch

Glenrothes

One of my favourite single malt scotches is unquestionably the Glenrothes.

At $100+ for a 750ML bottle, the Glenlivet 18 year is a special occasion scotch.

The Jura 10 year is an excellent choice as a mild everyday scotch.

Wine

Dalton

Having toured the Dalton Winery in the north of Israel, I’m a big fan of Dalton wines.

 

Galil-Mountain-Cabernet-Sauignon

Galil wines from Israel are very nice.

 

Cupcake Wine Red Velvet

Recently, a friend introduced me to Cupcake wines. In red and white, they’re worth the taste.

 

VOGA-Pinot-Grigio

Voga is a simple yet excellent Pinot Grigio.

 

Fuzion Wines

As far as I’m concerned, Fuzion makes some of the better inexpensive wines out there.

 

A rosé from the Niagara region of Ontario, the Trius is an excellent light summery wine.
