The potatoes & onions are first sautéed in the EVOO until they soften a bit. Then, they are layered on the bottom of a baking pan with salt & pepper. Then, place the fish atop the potatoes & onions and pour some dry white wine over the top of the fish and bake it at 350 for about an hour or so. Since we always had the fish with Albariño in Spain, we decided to have the Albino Rhino with it--a match made in heaven! The Albariños that we had in Spain were quite excellent, but a steady diet of these seemingly acidic wines was a bit too much for me. The Albino Rhino has developed a very nice softness that cuts through the acidity and makes it perfect with the richness of the fish and the EVOO'ed potatoes.



wow!! that sounds awesome!!

I was concerned about your blood pressure! You are quite...passionate about the subject. Be happy!

Edit: I had to go back and read, didn't see what you'd posted, which was "I assure you, chem, I have none of the above. Religion makes you rather uncomfortable, and I'm sure it's for none of the reasons you list." Without getting too much into discussion of religion and politics, the thing which makes me uncomfortable is people's behavior toward others, not their belief in a non-scientific idea. I have plenty of non-scientific beliefs of my own, which we will not get into here.

Your analogy would make sense if we were talking about whether biodynamic farming should be mandatory for all, or if people were causing harm in the name of biodynamics. I'm not aware of any of these things happening. At worst, it's a harmless gimmick. I don't understand the hostility. I will buy a bottle of your nekkid lady wine if it's not too expensive.

Finally got the cooler loaded up. I'm at about 145 bottles right now, with a small rack to still go in the bottom. When all is said and done I may only be 2-2.5 cases short of space. If I can drink some down before the spree of new releases we are probably going to get here soon, then I may be okay.

I did this tonight for me and HAK. Turned out really great 'Course, I got the fish out of the oven and we looked at it and said "well what do we do with this now?" Got the spine out pretty well, but there were still plenty of little bones to contend with. I also ended up doing the red snapper... made a side dish of zucchini and bell peppers.

Sadly, I could not find his Albino Rhino, so I went with the F-Bomb instead. Worked out alright, but could have used just a little more acidity. Those potatoes got a little happy with the oil. I actually thought about pouring some vinegar on the fish to make up for the less acidic wine, but didn't do it. Should've.

All in all, quite tasty

Good to hear! Glad you enjoyed it! Our friends made sure to spoon the sauce from the bottom of the pan over the fish to add a little more moisture to it while serving. I'll check with them to find out what fish they typically use--I can't remember what it was. I do know that it had black skin.

I get messed up when I go for a fish fry to one of our taverns and find bones in my fish. I got used to it this summer though. When you have a whole fish, you just work with it. We put a plate out for bones and skin. Our friend's son loves to eat the head. THAT's where I draw the line. So, not for me! Pilar just cut the fish in quarters or so--depending on the size of the fish and served it directly from the baking pan.

I also want to mention that as much I love Scott Harvey's wines, I now HATE the bottles that he uses. These Eurocaves were just not meant for anything other than generic Bordeaux bottles and every single bottle that Scott uses (with the exception of the InZin), including the Astrale e Terra, are taller and slight "mushroomed" at the top of the bottle so that they they refuse to stack or interlace properly in my cooler and if I try to lay several on top of each other, the top row is no longer level and therefore the entire cork does not stay covered by wine.

Just means I have to drink his wine fast, right?

Except for his Rosé (Jana), Riesling (Jana), & Syrah (SH) wines, which are in the Burgundy shape.

Oh, and Corison. Her bottles are taller too.

Gotta love Woot. Bought the "new" Banshee headset. Got an email saying they weren't new, but refurbs.

Email said they were refunding $15 for the mistake, and offering us a chance to cancel the order (by noon Wed CT) and get the whole amount back.

So I emailed saying cancel. Got an email back saying it was cancelled and refund on the way. Checked on the stuff page and sure enough, it said cancelled.


However, today I get a shipping notification on them, and they are no longer showing cancelled on the stuff page. ????

So email sent to them asking if it is a "new" one they found, or still the old, and reminding them I cancelled the refurb.



On the bright side, temps are finally going down here in SoCal, and my grass is green!!



Edit: My lawn is green! The lawn!! Sheesh!

Any quick suggestions on what would go well with BLT's tonight? (and some fancy Velveta Shells and Cheese). I was leaning towards a bottle of the Hahn Cab Franc, since some of the notes I read said "bacon fat".
