Articles I would like to have written

I don’t agree with everything Elliott Morss says in these articles, and some of the perspectives are US-centric, but you might notice that he writes on many of the themes that engage me too.

Not light reading – take them one at a time, and with a mug of coffee to hand.  Must admit I have not read them in detail myself yet, but the mug-of-coffee approach is what I am planning.

How Restaurants Select and Price Wine

Selecting Wines

I discovered the website when seeking out entries for my new blog roll, but decided the articles probably probably fit better here in a post of their own.  If you want to check for new articles, I am sure you can work out how for yourself.

Finally I have a blog roll

My blog has been without a roll so long it was starting to get embarrassing.  I am actually very keen on linking, as I hope you are aware from my posts, but somehow I could never decide what to include and exclude from a blog roll.

In the end I decided not to worry too much about it.  What you will find are what I find interesting – friends, and blogs that I think offer a slightly different perspective on wine and food.  You will not find links to sites most wine enthusiasts already know about, and you will not find links that I have been paid for.
