Good coffee starts my day (full disclosure – I drink it strong and black, and prefer cold brew – as long as I had time to prepare it in advance), and I’m a complete wine snob. I was fortunate to work in a wine packing plant in a previous life, I endured (hard work, I assure you) being put through the WSET level 2 wine course, and ended up on the tasting panel. The tasting panel is not as glamorous as it sounds, we usually got to taste wine where it was on the edge of being not acceptable… go figure! As a result, I’ve had some fantastic beer, wine and spirits experiences and finding great selections is a big part of the pleasure of dining for me.
