Wine

Wine for Tuesday nights

It’s Tuesday night again and you’re having spaghetti because it’s cheap, and you spent too much last Saturday night at that fancy restaurant.

Recipes

Building a better vegetable gratin

A gratin of summer vegetables should be the easiest thing in the world to make in August: a no-recipe breeze for the carefree summer cook. Slice up squash, tomatoes, etc.; arrange attractively; bake.

Food & Drink

Homemade? No sweat.

If there's one dish that signifies summer, it's probably ice cream. Be it a simple bowlful or carefully balanced scoops piled high in a sugar cone, this is the stuff of bright colors and vivid flavors, perhaps a little messy but always fun. It's an easy antidote to the heat that takes us straight back to childhood.

Keep summer sizzling with Balsamic Grilled Swordfish

Swordfish steaks are a treat on the grill in the summer. The secret is not to overcook the swordfish. It should cook for 8 minutes per inch of thickness. Most steaks are about an inch thick. Alter your cooking time according to the thickness of the swordfish steak you buy. It will continue to cook in its own heat off the fire.

Beer

A British court has ruled that two groups of shareholders in brewing company SABMiller should vote separately on the 79 billion pound ($104 million) takeover offer made by rival Anheuser-Busch InBev, effectively giving smaller investors an outside chance to derail the deal.
