Ladies and gentlemen, please join me in welcoming the impossibly charming and erudite Mr. Alan Linck.
Alan always makes me bring my A-game to the dining table...a cook of great accomplishment in his own right, he works with food every day in his role as a produce manager for a famous high-end grocer. His familiarity with food and wine is deep, so one serves him out-of-a-box macaroni with cheese at their grave peril. And don't even think about beef!
On this evening, Alan is enjoying a glass of Lalande-de-Pomerol.
An item of note: Mr. Linck once lived in an apartment attached to a funeral home, where, together, we watched all the seasons of Six Feet Under on DVD.
I'm looking forward to Alan's next visit!
