Drink For The Dogs: Château La Paws Supports No-Kill Shelters

Jackie Gordon Singing Chef - Drink For The Dogs: Château La Paws Supports No-Kill Shelters

Please drink for a good cause. If I told you there was a line of wines that you can buy to help support no-kill shelters like the North Shore Animal League you might think that’s a nice gimmick to sell some crappy wine. However, Château La Paws from Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines is actually a quite drinkable selection of reasonably priced wines. I went to the launch the other night where I cuddled puppies and met Effie, the only dog from the 12 dogs that were photographed for the wine labels for the Château La Paws line that has yet to be adopted. She is a sweetie and deserves a forever home.

My Top Ten New York Restaurants 2014

The only one not pictured is the Four Seasons because the photos were so dark.

The only one not pictured is the Four Seasons because the photos were so dark.

Is it even possible for me to pick my top ten favorite restaurants of 2014? After all, there are so many good ones. Plus, there are so many good ones that I still haven’t been to. I clearly need two stomachs or a clone.

I cooked a lot. I ate a lot! I ate out a lot. This is the first year I kept a complete list. This is my top ten of the over 220 restaurants, bakeries, cafes, food stalls, food trucks, holes in the wall, etc. I ate in, in 2014. I ate at a few of them more than once.  Oddly, I don’t think I ate at any food trucks. I’m not a fan of standing in line to get food or eat food.

The Great Latke Battles Of 2014

Jackie Gordon Singing Chef - The Great Latke Battles Of 2014

Every year, along with Hanukkah, come the latke battles. I sit on the sidelines and watch my social media feed fill up with “How To Make The Perfect Latke” controversy.

The titles could read:

  • Don’t Grate On Me
  • My Fat Beats Your Fat
  • Give Me Matzo Meal Or Give Me Death

I grabbed my spatula and my frying pan and got into the fight.
