Cook ribs like a pro

If there's one dish that signifies summer in America, it's ribs. Cooked outdoors in backyards across the country, ribs are a cherished pastime. They are the stuff of smoke and live fire, and the glory of long afternoons spent in lawn chairs with cold beers. Passionate cooks keep a careful eye, periodically basting a little here or prodding there, as a hungry audience of family and friends watches the artistry unfold.

What wines to drink with grilled seafood

One of the simplest, yet most delicious, dinners you can enjoy this summer is a platter of grilled oysters and shrimp. Either form of seafood requires little more than throwing it on the grill. A simple sauce of sambal oelek, horseradish, mayo and cilantro accompanies them. All you need to complete the meal is one of these crisp white wines.

You can really taste the tomato, the basil and the garlic on these chips, along with a lot of salt. We found them totally addictive; your experience may vary.
