Dear Food and Wine Magazine,
My mom got Gabe a subscription to you for Christmas and now I can’t put you down.
I want you to know that I am not a magazine person. I am a book person, I am an internet person. I only read the paper online, but it’s not like that with you. You give me pictures and recipies and pairings… I never set out to be a food and wine snob, but you are making it so easy!
All I ask from you is that you find a way for wine to have less empty calories. Any chance of that happening? If not, I understand. I will take your pairing suggestions anyway.
The wine store near my house wanted me to thank you too. They are making a killing off of me.
(Nobody asked me to say any of this or paid me to say this. I didn’t get anything for free – unless you count me usurping Gabe’s Christmas present as free. That being said, I will always accept free wine in the future if anybody wants to send me some. Seriously, anyone? Food and Wine? Wine Spectator? Mom? I am not proud.)
