You're Invited: The #WorldWineTravel Writers are Heading Down Under...to Western Australia

from vineyards.com

Have you been following along as the World Wine Travel writers made their way around Spain in 2021? Well, for 2022, our focus is going to be the wine regions of Australia and New Zealand. So, get ready to head Down Under with us. Here's what the group has planned...


A decade ago, I spent six weeks taking elementary kids on a culinary tour of Australia. We tried vegemite; we made pavlovas and Australian meat pies.


My youngest son has been been infatuated with wombats since first grade - I have no idea why - but he was thrilled to be able to bring his stuffed animal to school for the class. And he threw on his wool kangaroo hat for good measure.


My older son learned to play the digeridoo for that class. All of the classes I led at their school were a learning experience for all of us. 

But I didn't delve into Australian wines at all. It's time to fix that with this year's focus. I am hosting January with our first exploration of the Western Australian wine region.


While the wine region is relatively small, compared to the entire western part of the country, there was several subregions to get you started. Look for wines from the Swan District, Perth Hills, Peel, Geographe, Margaret River, Blackwood Valley, Manjimup, Pemberton, or Great Southern.

I look forward to learning from all of the #WorldWineTravel writers. I will likely "pull some snags out of the eski and toss them on the barbie for the blokes." Translation: "...pull some sausages out of the fridge and toss them on the grill for my guys." Maybe. Or I  might get a little bit more creative since we have some time. Here are the details for participation.

This #WorldWineTravel January 2022 event is Saturday, January 22nd, 2022. Are you ready to jump in and participate? I hope so. Here are the #WorldWineTravel details…

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!
