Spanish ‘Champagne’ a pleasant, affordable alternative

Dibon Brut Reserve Cava

Penedes, Spain, $12.99

I've been thinking about sparkling wine lately because it's well-suited for steamy summer nights; just one glass will go a long way to ease the heat.

Sparkling wine also came to mind because someone gave me a bottle of Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve...


Encore dishing up food reviews, chews and news

As I write this Monday afternoon, I keep looking out the window, expecting to see Dorothy Gale's house go blowing by. Holy downpour, Batman! Well, at least it will help lessen this month's lawn-watering bill.

Hope you had a nice weekend. I uncharacteristically got to see a now-

Steve Winwood – still ‘in the high life’ on the road

Much to my dismay, I missed the recent Steely Dan / Steve Winwood concert stop at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Mass. I must confess that I've been a Steve Winwood fan for more years than I care to remember. That said, I heard from everyone I know who did attend the concert that, at 68...
