Food books - A very good year
Geeks, grains and globe-trotting. Nearly every one of this year’s best food books seems to fall into one of those categories. For those of us who (somewhat obsessively) watch the food world, there actually is some logic to that. Chefs have become fascinated by the hows and whys of cooking, delving into the science of the kitchen to find new ways to master delicious. After some fits and rough starts, publishers finally are learning how to make food science sexy to the home cook.

Delectable: A wine app that could revolutionize drinking
Alexander Niehenke began to appreciate wine 10 years ago. But for the first four years, it was simply a beverage he enjoyed with dinner from time to time, especially when cooking at home. And then he put his nose in a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon from Justin, a winery based in Paso Robles, Calif. He was at a bachelor party, where attendees weren’t paying attention to the wine inside their glasses. For Niehenke, the aromas were intoxicating. Something clicked. He dove into the world of wine.

A sweet cookie for Christmas
It’s cookie time. And right about now we’re all looking for a quick Christmas cookie that we can share with family and friends. Sure, we have our favorite cookies, but often those are the ones that take additional decorating — can you say cut-outs — or more expensive ingredients.

Go nuts for the holidays
Like eggs, nuts are perfectly-packaged natural foods that come to us in a shell and in small portions. And like eggs, nuts (and seeds) represent the start of new life and pack a lot of healthy fat, protein, vitamins and minerals, deserving of the label, “super food.” They also bring a tremendous amount of flavor and crunchy texture. We’re looking at you, peanuts.

Drink to warm the soul, body
When the winter chill comes crashing into town, Nancy Leonard of La Salle knows how to bring sweet holiday cheer to her family and friends. Her special recipe for hot chocolate is a much-anticipated Christmas gift. “I’ve been making this for at least 30 years,” she said. “I make it and share it with the family, because it makes a lot. You need to make it in your largest roaster.”

Wine, fun night out pair well
Wine of all kinds pairs well with shopping and a girls’ night out. The businesses in the Princeton Art District have been giving women, and men, the opportunity to get out of the house for 13 years when they host their annual wine walk. Held in the art district last month, the walk allows people to visit businesses up and down Main Street and sample wine provided by Beetz Me, a store in the district.
