Birthday Dinner - with Icewine

It was my husband's birthday today so a week or so ago, I asked him what he'd like me to make for his special dinner. He picked a couple of recipes from our well-used copy of Anna & Michael Olson's "Cook at Home." From the "Romance" (!) chapter, Stan chose Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Madeira Pan Juices and Butternut Squash Purée. Both very simple, elegant and delicious recipes.

5H: Share your voice

Every morning, I wake up to notifications of new 5H friends and followers, and I delight to see where in the world they are, and to attempt to figure out how they might have heard about my 5H Giving efforts.

Just yesterday, I got an email via this website from Kim Todd of to tell me that she'd been pointed to 5H Giving by a mutual friend, Martha Muzychka, and she'd been inspired to write about it. In her fabulous blog post, Kim ties her #‎g2kgtg‬ efforts to the 5H philosophy.

Good to know gifts that give (#g2kgtg) is a special project of that looks at local gifts that people will like, use, and that won’t leave an unnecessarily big footprint on the planet or humankind.

I particularly like how Kim explains and expands on my original 5H post, using wonderful examples for her local Newfoundland audience. 

That gave me an idea. Would you be game to define the 5H's using examples that are meaningful to you and where you come from, be that physically and/or emotionally? 

If you share with me, I'll share with the rest of our 5H followers, via this blog, Facebook and Twitter. 

5H has followers/friends/supporters all over the world now, so it will be great to hear whose voices chime in. Consider yourself invited!

Science artfully applied to Malbec

Michael Godel put out a great blog post today about one of my clients - Versado. Very pleased that he asked to include several of my photos in his post. Have a look

Of grapes and good times

In anticipation of the release of Versado's 2013 Malbec tomorrow in Vintages, I put together a little photo album of the 2013 harvest in Mendoza, along with a few other memories of our magical trip, and posted them on the Versado website. Have a look here.

We also prepared a newsletter for Versado fans that recounted some of the highlights of the 2013 growing year. More here.
