    port's a good starter. there are blends that are terrific and will make you happy until you can appreciate the nuance of the $100 stuff. check out tawnys, "vintage characters" etc. from the major houses.

    Start with Taylor's 1970, Ed. No less for you, my friend.

    Quick recommendation for a good duck confit recipe? Never tried to make it before, I'd like to try it with my father for his birthday. Thanks!

    Ed, try a "late bottled vintage" or LBV. Very good value play.

    You need to get your mind out of the gutter.

    It is a broad subject. What style do you want? How much do you want to spend?

    I want to spend less than 100€/$. Best value would be good.

    The reason I want to buy it is because I want to cook with more expensive ingredients, too - probably once or twice a month -, but without a proper recipe I won't ever do it. However, the book doesn't have to call for foie gras and alba truffles in every recipe.

    As for style - I'm not sure. I guess some basic French stuff would be good - nouvelle cuisine? I also like the Japanese cuisine a lot, but most cooks - e.g. Bras - do so, too thus it automatically is Japanese-inspired.
