    Will you look at that. To me, the hardest part of threading the intestine on the extruder is finding the opening. Usually end up blowing on the end until it opens up. Thanks for the link.

    have fewer glasses. A set of 8 Spegeleau "bordeaux" glasses could, IMO, serve most white and red purposes.

    Less is never the answer on SF!

    Although FWIW, I do find a set of 8 bordeaux glasses good enough to serve most reds and whites, I think at least 4 "burg" style glasses would be much better suited to pinot, old world chard, and nebbiolo. A few champagne flutes and you can drink well to your heart's content!

    My first experiment is the infamous poached egg. It's been in since 10:07, only 30 more minutes to go!

    My kitchen and apartment in general are comparable to small NYC apartment sized. :( I've got a bit of everything, some Zweisel bordeaux, some random Riedels I got for free and the red/white set from Moma, some Speigelau champagne flutes, some cocktail glasses, a set of the Glencairn glasses for whisky, some Baccarat tumblers, etc.

    The downside is that Japan = earthquakes all the time = broken glassware if you get shaken badly enough, unless you pad and secure it all. We keep a lot of stuff in boxes, including the crystal. I think there was a 5.5 near Tokyo just a few days ago.

    I think I'll be going for the Schott Syrah glass for my "universal."

    Those are only like $70 a stem. So not 1%.

    I don't know how those are shaped, but I bought my mother a set of Schott's a few years ago for Christmas and they have been perfect ever since. Not a chip or anything.

    They're a good cross between bordeaux style and burg style. Larger bowl, but not as large as burg styles are, and not as small at the rim.

    nice. If so, I'd suggest these for most everything.

    Classic champagne cocktails (sugar cube doused in bitters + champagne). So very good.

    I had the tasting menu at Daniel last week. It still makes me happy.
