A Trader Giotto's Dinner


To say I don't cook much would be something of an understatement. But I do have my moments. One of my dishes (maybe my only) is a sausage pappardelle from Trader Joe's.





The whole meal, including wine, is just eight items, so it's perfect for the express checkout. I think it's just eight items. Wait. Six...seven...eight—ok we're good. Whew!

I remove the casing from the sausages and fry them up while the onions and peppers sauté in the other pan.


Then I dump the meat and veggies into the sauce, and let that go for at least an hour.



Then, viola! A Trader Giotto's feast! That wasn't so difficult.



Or was it? And I wonder why I don't cook very much.



Corkage is a quaint little sake and wine tasting room nestled between Cafe Abir and Tsunami on Fulton Street. Yoshi Sako (above) makes you feel right at home in this neighborhood establishment, where you can taste a variety of sakes and wines that you may not have otherwise considered-- like draft wine on tap. Monday nights Yoshi offers a tasting class, where you can sample the spectrum of sakes.
