Restaurant Review - Ruby Room, Bev Hills Thanks to Groupon, I tried out this Persian restaurant last night and my offer of cheap eats was accepted by Patti and this was her first time with the group. I brought a decent New World bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia as there is free corkage at the restaurant and I had a great dining experience there and Patti, I hope you did as well! Groupies, you have one week to use up this Groupon for this place and I suggest you definitely should use it. If you can't, I'll buy it as I'd love to go here again! Click Here to read my restaurant review I'm gonna work on a prix fixe menu for our group.
Cork It Buddy! - On a recent video I recommended to you, Wine Confidential, they explored in depth the corking of wines. They had world class tasters taste an identical wine, one with a trad cork the other was a screw off cap. They tasted a white wine and it was no comparison, after several years, the wine was much better from the screw cap. This is a good thing as cork is getting really expensive and a modern screw cap bottle will be a better wine over the years. It may allow the white wines longer aging I suspect. The reds improve as well. So, I'm no longer embarrassed to bring a screw capped bottle of wine. Some wine snob that harrasses me about the screw cap wine I bring will get an earful. Now that you are in the know... you've just upped your game...

Darrell's Test Kitchen - Yesterday, I dined at a Persian restaurant, the Ruby Room and they make an amazing Dill Rice! I gotta get me some basmati rice and try it for myself, it was so amazing! I Googled for a recipe... it's quite a bit more work than just using the ole rice cooker, I'm gonna have to see if Ican create an acceptable substitute but using a rice cooker and a lot less steps. I posted a dill rice recipe in the Message Board.
