Wine for Chinese Cuisine? Try Oz

Older classics shine with refined dishes

Posted: March 12, 2015  By Harvey Steiman

A myth persists that Chinese food is bad for wine. And yet, some of my most memorable wine-and-food experiences have involved Peking duck, ginger-laced steamed fish and spicy salt-and-pepper seafood. And the wines transcend the cliché choices of German Riesling and Alsace Gewürztraminer. Last week, for our annual dinner to benefit the Central Coast Wine Classic, Archie McLaren and I gathered the high bidders for our lot and some mature Australian bottles from my cellar at Hakkasan in San Francisco.

The Restaurant in the Cellar

Honolulu hideaway looks like the one to watch

Posted: February 13, 2015  By Harvey Steiman

Who would expect to find one of America's great restaurants hidden in the basement of a big shopping center in Honolulu? The archway entrance in the middle of the Ala Moana Shopping Center's lower parking level makes it feel like sneaking into a very fancy speakeasy. The meal I had there last week left me dazzled.

Sonoma’s Dining Shifts into High Gear

New restaurants in Healdsburg and Sonoma Valley are resetting the bar

Posted: February 11, 2015  By Tim Fish

The Sonoma County dining scene isn't like any place else. Chefs were doing farm to table back in the 1980s, long before it was de rigueur, and somehow over the years they've managed to keep it real. The chefs here hangout with farmers and the winemakers are connected to the land and the kitchen. Here are four new restaurants Sonoma diners are excited about.

Roasted: Why Not to be Self-Conscious About Your Wine-Tasting Notes

My coffee descriptors could use a jolt, but learning any beverage is a journey

Posted: February 10, 2015  By MaryAnn Worobiec

My colleague Harvey Steiman's recent blog posts about pairing wine and coffee reminded me of a story about the intersection of wine and coffee in my own life. One of our neighbors across the street invited us over for a beer. In his kitchen was the biggest, fanciest espresso maker I've ever seen. He was completely obsessed with coffee, and after chatting a while, he suggested I stop by a coffee tasting, or "cupping," at a local coffee importer and roaster that's open on the weekends.
