Merlot & Quesadillas

I’ve heard of Natalie MacLean. I get her newsletter and have read some of her book. I hadn’t ever spent much time on the web site. So right now I’m going to point you to it, because there’s a nifty tool you have to play with.

I get a lot of hits on "wine & food pairing" because it’s one of my categories. That means I write about figuring it out though – not that I have all the answers.
