A passion for food + fashion

You know you’re living in LA when a dinner party is planned around a bottle of wine that your friend got as a gift when her company, Suicide Girls, was featured in an episode of CSI:NY. (For the uninitiated, SuicideGirls is an alternative pinup site featuring punk rock, goth and indie girls.) CSI creator Anthony Zuiker is a fan of the girls and wrote an entire episode around them back in 2006. The episode was pretty awesome, and my dear friend Missy Suicide, who appeared as herself in the episode, was fantastic. And, holy hangover, so was this wine! This wasn’t just any bottle—but a magnum (1.5 liters) of 2005 Quintessa Red Wine. It’s a Bordeaux-style blend of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Cab Franc and Petit Verdot—velvety smooth with lots of spice, smoke and dark cherry flavors. In a word: seductive, much like the vixen who shared it with us all. Missy uncorked it last night in honor of her husband’s and Mr. Foodinista’s recent birthdays. Our friends Brooke, Jill and Dan, and my sister, Claire, helped bury the evidence, glass by delicious glass. Here’s the crime scene:

  1. This blog is one of my favorite times of day.
    So wish I was around that table now and then.

  2. how on earth were you up and at ’em at 9am? I am still recovering from that magnum and then some! thanks for a great night, so happy to catch up with everyone
