You’ve probably tasted wine with your tongue, but have you ever engaged all of your senses in the process? How about your retronasal passage?

We’ve also got lots of wine advice for the holidays at the Gilded Fork, including wines for under $10, food and wine pairings and a complete cocktail party how-to. ‘Tis the season, people! (

If you find yourself in a bind, you can also call our friends at ChefsLine, the live cooking hotline, for advice and comfort. Chef Mark might even pick up the phone! We’ve made special arrangements for Food Philosophy listeners, so you can get 30 free minutes of consultation with a live chef through January 1st, 2007.
