Guest blackberry blogger: David Lynch at 3,251 meters a.s.l.

Yo JP
Check out these canederli, consumed at 3251 m atop “piz boa” high above Corvara!
A presto

If anyone would appreciate the attached photo of truly ridiculously good AA porcini, it’d be you — last night we had these bitches every which way!!!!

Canederli (knödel in German) are bread dumplings, typically stuffed with speck, traditionally served in South Tyrol.

Fungi porcini (Boletus edulis) or swine mushrooms are so-called because in antiquity they were not prized as they are today.

David Lynch is one of our country’s top sommeliers and wine writers and just one of the nicest (and funniest) folks I know in this dog-eat-dog business. His intro to Italian wine seminar is one of the most popular at the Aspen Food & Wine Classic. Check out this preview of David’s new book, The Wine Snob’s Dictionary (Random House, October 2008). Whatever David is pouring, hey, I’m drinking…

    You’re so right about David Lynch- his writing and seminars are sincerely entertaining and educational.
    It was great to share his seminar at Aspen on Italian wines.
    And if he’s pouring at 3,251 meters (roughly 10,660 feet) which is about halfway up the Silver Queen lift at Aspen, it would be particularly good.
    Grazie ..
