East End Terroir

For the last couple of months I've been writing short Q&A profiles of Long Island winemakers for Edible East End. The North and South Forks of Long Island are a viticultural wonderland complete with loamy topsoils and a cool, maritime climate that produce wines with moderate alcohol, strong, aromatics, and crisp acidity. It's a diverse region where you'll see everything from chardonnay and sauvignon blanc to merlot, cabernet franc, and even blaufränkisch.

Check out the Q&As and drink some wine.

Forklift, Ohio Issue #25

I've got a new poem in the always incredible Forklift, Ohio: A Journal of Cooking, Poetry, & Light Industrial Safety. If you're unfamiliar With Forklift, Ohio, then you're unfamiliar with cool—it's lean and mean and hand-assembled from a variety of recovered materials. And they have recipes. And poetry. And illustruations from vintage safety manuals. Issue #25 also features a cover that is chalk friendly so can you draw your own cover art.
