The shape of a wine glass plays a vital role in enjoying any wine. Different shapes are used for reds, whites, and champagnes, and red wine glasses have variations within the species.

Ale is a sweet tasting, full-bodied beer that dates back to ancient times. Ales can be anywhere from a pale gold to a dark rich, deep brown color, depending on the grains used in the brewing process.

Fuller bodied white wines tend to have more tropical aromas compared to those with a lighter body. Lighter, crisper whites usually have a tart fruit flavor. Full-bodied white wines include some Chardonnays and Meursault. Light-bodied whites include Pinot Grigio and some Sauvignon Blancs.

Hamburgers are generally much healthier than America’s other favorite food: hot dogs. There is five times the zinc, four times the protein and iron, and a quarter of the sodium in a quarter-pound hamburger compared to an all-beef hot dog.

Grilling is a quick and healthy way of infusing a lot of flavor without a lot of added fats, complex ingredients or cooking techniques. For added flavor in your burger, consider ordering a patty that’s been spiced up with a zesty marinade.

Belgian beers such as saison, golden strong ale and tripel have soft malt flavors and can range in taste from mild to strong spiciness depending on the addition of spices. Dubbel and strong ale may have flavors of dried fruit due to the malts and yeast used to make them.

There may be such a thing as taking your love of waffles too far. The Dutch painter Pieter Bruegel’s work The Fight Between Carnival and Lent from the 1500s features a man in the lower left corner wearing waffles on his head and gambling for another waffle.

The first reported use of hops in beer was 736 AD, but brewers didn’t really use hops until the 1500s. Before the 1500s, beer used ingredients like wormwood or other herbs to balance the sweetness. Medieval brewers did not like hops in beer because they thought it caused “melancholy and tormenting disease.” They also thought tomatoes were poisonous.

Did you know that the club sandwich was the favorite sandwich of King Edward VIII of England? The King’s wife, Wallis Simpson, usually prepared his club sandwiches herself. Unsurprisingly, she became a self-proclaimed expert at it.

Richer, heavier foods usually go well with richer, heavier wines, while lighter foods demand light wines. Additionally, red wine typically is served with red meat, white wine with white meat and fish, and sweet wine with desserts.

Narrower and taller than red wine glasses, the white wine glass is a sturdy vehicle for enjoying all the varieties of this wonderful libation. Their construction makes them a bit more sturdy than their red wine counterparts are.

The ancient Greeks and Romans brewed beer, and Plinius actually reported the popularity of beer in the Mediterranean. Beer was brewed in the outer areas of the Roman Empire where wine was hard to find, though beer was still considered a “barbarian drink” by most Romans.

The establishment of the German standard for brewers was an important point in beer history and eventually led to the 1516 Reinheitsgebot, a law concerning the purity of beer. This famous beer purity law, the first of its kind, was a pledge that stated that only four ingredients could be used in the making of beer: water, hops, malted barley, and malted wheat.

Grilling is a cooking method in which food is suspended above or rests below a heat source (typically an open flame). Grilling is considered a dry heat cooking method, although it is sometimes combined with braising and other wet cooking methods such as in barbequing.

The French called french toast “pain perdu,” or “lost bread,” which has carried over through the Cajuns in New Orleans to make a local version with the same name. The Canadian name for French toast is much more respectful: “pain doré,” or “golden bread.”

Some states have their own types of burgers Hawaii has derived a hamburger style from the Japanese-American culture and often have the patty topped with teriyaki sauce and a pineapple. A Texas burger uses mustard as the only condiment but may have vegetables including jalapeno slices and usually comes with cheese.

Plump, juicy tomatoes are a great addition to any classic burger. Today the world’s population enjoys about 130 million tons of tomatoes per year. The US is the world’s leading producer, with tomatoes grown in all 50 states.

Eighty-three percent of seniors say they usually eat breakfast, following the classic injunction that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Seventy-one percent of people age 55 to 64 eat breakfast regularly, compared to only 54 percent of those under 55.

The different types of ales are: Amber Ale, Bitter, Pale Ale, India Pale Ale (IPA), Irish Ale, Stout, Porter, and Wheat Beer. These vary in color, taste, and fermentation methods and are produced in various countries around the world.

Did you know that the most expensive beer in the world costs $52 a bottle? It was a recipe recovered in Queen Nefertiti’s Temple of the Sun in Egypt, and is called “Tutankhamen.”

We really enjoyed our food and the staff is so nice all the time.
