Come On, Summer!

A reader just wrote to say that she'd tried carpaccio and loved it. She did say hers was wagyu beef which is certainly one-upping kobe!

Trader Joe has some new stuff -- "Naturally Smoked Sea Salt from South Africa with a umami taste." I bought some, but can't imagine what I'll do with it. Put it on the table for guests, I guess.

Habanero Hot Sauce. This is a serious heat source, but by no means fatal. Less of a vinegar taste (unlike Tabasco) and more of a spreading heat.

You be the judge! I think this is a dubious idea at best -- sparkling sake! My only experience with sake was many years ago and, frankly, it didn't take prisoners and dropped me on my derriere.
