Good Taste
 
 
 

December 3, 2021

 
With cooler weather comes a turn toward rich and flavourful spirits that will warm you up, and Christopher Waters suggests eight impressive recent bottles. We’re getting in the holiday spirit with food and drink-themed gift ideas. And we have a recipe for Spring Onion and Roasted Mushroom Tart from the new cookbook Earth to Table Bakes.

If you have a question on wine, e-mail it and we’ll answer a selection in the newsletter and on our website. Please share this newsletter, and if it was forwarded to you, sign up for this and other Globe and Mail lifestyle and arts newsletters. – Lori Fazari
