İyi ki doğdun! Turkish Meze, Ekşili Balık, and Donkey & Goat's 2021 Sparkling Grüner & Chard Pét-Nat #WinePW

Today the Wine Pairing Weekend writers are talking about Slow Wine. Gwendolyn of Wine Predator...Gwendolyn Alley is hosting; you can read her invitation . Last month, the Italian Food Wine Travel group looked at Italian Slow Wine. This month, we turn our eyes towards Slow Wine in the United States.  And, as a fantastic bonus, Gwendolyn arranged a Zoom meeting for us with the senior editor of the guide,  Pam Strayer. It was nice to see familiar names in the editorial masthead, including Nicole Ruiz Hudson of Somm's Table , I've known Nicole for years through our wine blogging groups, but I finally met her face to face in 2019 at a Prosecco Superiore lunch in San Francisco. And the presenter from that event is also one of the Slow Wine Guide editors - Iris Rowlee. The wine circles collide! But we are talking about Slow Wine...

Limoncello, Homemade Lemon Liqueur

Limoncello is one of those sips that instantly transports you back to where you first tasted it. In my case: sitting on the beach on the Amalfi coast with Jake during a three week trip to Italy just before we got pregnant with R. It reminds me of sunshine, sand, and a carefree time in our lives. Each time I make it, it's a delicious remembrance that one of these days we'll be kidfree and carefree again. Sooner than we think, actually. Well, maybe not the carefree part - that's a luxury of the young and  naïve - but both of our boys will be launched at the end of the summer. And I will certainly lift a glass in celebration that we did it: We raised two boys who have grown up to be good young men who will make the world a better place! But this is about limoncello...

I picked a ton of lemons at the fa
