No. 2 : Kitchen SCOOP

When buying tarragon, make sure you buy French tarragon instead of  Russian. French tarragon is extremely fragrant with a pronounced anise flavor. Yet another tarragon variety – often called Mexican tarragon – can stand in for the French in a pinch, but is a little “spicier”. Tarragon’s species name, “dracunculus”, comes from the Latin for dragon, and reflects the shape of its leaves as well as its middle ages reputation for curing snake bites.

No. 3 : Clever Idea

You probably know that maple syrup is a delicious sweetener made from the sap of maple trees. But did you know that it’s available in four different grades from “golden color with a delicate taste” to “very dark and strong”? The third designation , “amber color and rich taste” is my favorite, its darker color more intense flavor is worth the work to seek it out!

No. 4 : CHEERS!

This flavorful wine is from Georges Duboeuf – the “king” of Gamay. Gamay is the primary grape grown in the Beaujolais area and Fleurie is one of the top ten wine areas or “Crus”. This bright and lighter red wine has a potent aroma of ripe strawberries and cherries with a juicy ripe taste to match.
