Shabbat Post-Mortem
Shove this sweet white in the freezer for a Chenin Slush.

It’s generally more expensive to keep or buy kosher than not. If you, dear reader, fall in the former category, this is your lucky day, because I am about to reveal to you a truly valuable tip: Baron Herzog Chenin Blanc. No, they are not paying me.

Rather, I pay them, most Shabbats – via the A & P at the end of my street – but just a platry $7.99 a bottle for this delicious stuff.

And it’s not just me who says so. My husband, who is very picky about wine, agrees. So does my darling friend Linda Lantos, a personal chef and all around foodie genius. (She recently attended a fermentation workshop. Obscure and awesome, don't you think?)

Still, if you're a true oenophile, this wine may not be for you. Or it may be, I'm never clear on how price and quality correlate in wine. This one is a bit sweet, but not too sweet, and, for a penny under eight bucks, extremely drinkable. My favorite thing to do with it is shove it in the freezer for a while until it turns into a kind of chenin slush. I drink this while preparing, eating and cleaning up after dinner on Shabbat and … shhhh … during the week sometimes, too.
