While I find it kind of hilarious that they parade their awards without mentioning a vintage, honestly, this is one of the better wines that I've had. No, it's nothing compared to a truly sophisticated bottle, but the real key is that it's actually pretty balanced compared to the tannin bombs that oh so many hip wineries like to produce. It still has a solid flavor, but one that actually works as part of a meal instead of blowing out your taste buds. If I were wealthy enough I'd probably find a more sophisticated staple, but honestly this is a pretty perfect table wine for most drinkers.

I've got some money to waste, and I want a toaster. I can't say I'm particularly interested in using it to cook hot dogs, eggs, etc. but I'm open to suggestions.
I really just want to hear from people who are particularly excited about something their toaster does that maybe the other ones don't.
Features I like:
>fits hamburger buns, bagels, english muffins, and texas toast
>heats and cooks as fast as physically possible
>zero supervision required (i.e. ejects food)
>must cook the toast to perfection on the first try (I hate toasters that err on the side of caution and you end up having to run it through twice)
>doesn't feel like it's made of cheap parts (highly prefer it to be made in the USA)
>can clean it easily

So, I'm a smoker. And a drinker. And when I've had a drink and want to go outside for a smoke at night, I want to listen to something. I have music that I enjoy, but typically when I go outside for 5-8 minutes I prefer to listen to someone telling me about shit I don't already know about.
What I'd like to know, /ck/, is whether or not you could direct me to some worthwhile "books on tape" type shit about food.
Obviously, spoken word cook books aren't exactly the most appealing idea. What I'm looking for are any suggestions of good food writing that can be enjoyed through an iPod in 10 minute segments while somewhat intoxicated (at the moment I've been listening to academic philosophy lectures, if that gives you any idea about my tastes).
As far as food writing goes, I have really enjoyed Jeffrey Steingarten's books.
I don't really see this thread going very far, but its something I haven't really seen on /ck/, and I will be happy with, and look into, any suggestions y'all are willing to suggest.

>Fat people are disgusting blobs that are too weak to work off that lard, look ugly, and smell.
>"BAAAAAAWWW! Everyone else is the problem! Fat-shaming! Fat-shaming!"
