Vinegre de Jerez
(or sherry vinegar) has been around since sherry making was originally introduced to the
Jerez area of Spain
by the Phoenicians, in 1100 BC. Since then, Jerez has remained at the center of Spain’s viniculture, with sherry wine at its core.
Sherry wine making continued relatively unchanged through the Roman times, until around
, when the Moors conquered Spain, and introduced the concept of
. This resulted in the development of fortified wines, like brandies and the current day Sherry.
Historically, in the
sherry bodegas of Jerez
, when the wine accidentally underwent acetic fermentation and became vinegar, it used to be considered a mistake – and the vinegar was often sold very cheaply or given away to the employees. However, in the 1950s, the French chefs discovered sherry vinegar, and the culinary world has not been the same since.
Jerez Wine and Vinagre de Jerez are now DO (Denominacion de Origen) products – which, like
Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
, Champagne wine, canned
San Marzano tomatoes
Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale
, means that the production and sale of true sherry wine and vinegar are controlled by a
(Regulating Body) and protected under Spanish and EU laws.

The fabulous perfect easy ribs
This past holiday we had a quick visit from our niece and nephew who resides near Dairy Joy on RT 117. They love many of our foods from ChefShop, like the
(but it is too big for the two of them) the
(she makes a mean Guacamole), and the
. So much that she ordered them to take home on the plane today.
And whilst she was here, we had them for the holiday meal! A perfect choice. Sadly, to many people came (they heard the ribs where on the fire) and we had no leftovers. Along with the
oven blasted cauliflower
, the two salads, and the
, it was a good meal!
Grill them or bake them in the oven, they come out great everytime.
These strips of naturally raised, grain-finished beef morsels from beautiful
are marinated in the original
Rib Recipe special marinade and, when grilled, they have just the right balance of sweet to salty and fat to lean -- incredibly yummy.
That's why Rick keeps the recipe a secret! They are positively addictive; like potato chips, it's impossible to eat just one (or three, for that matter).

NEW Cooking Class!
Cooking Classes with Chef Karen - Cooking in the French Countryside Class
Some of France’s most famous food has its roots in rustic, regional fare. In this class you’ll learn how to make dishes that are typical of this French “country” style: unfussy and soul-satisfying. We’ll prepare a Pissaladiere Nicoise (onion tart with anchovies and olives); Daube Provencale (rich beef stew with tomatoes and orange essence); Ratatouille (sautéed onion, eggplant, tomato and red pepper); Salad Greens with Mustard Vinaigrette and Tarte Tatin with Crème Fraiche (open-faced apple tart with tangy cream sauce).
Real Copper River hasn't come down much in price yet. Locally, at the local fish markets, it's over $40 per pound for Kings and only slightly less for Chinooks. Don't forget, it's a good time to order your cherries, the harvest may be earlier by almost a week this year. Hardneck Garlic is coming along well and our year long test is going well. I have been eating a head every week and given the fact that it is almost a year old, they are still full of flavor. And of course, with all the avocados we have been having recently, it only makes me pine for Peter's Amazing Reed Avocado's! Order up!
