As you emerge from your winter hibernation, readying for bikini season and donning your new garden gloves, I declare,
“Welcome my friends to the kitchensink Unplugged April Newsletter!”
Here’s what’s shaking at kitchensink in glorious Roslyn, Washington:
Hands on According to conversations with customers at kitchensink, the most loved and hated ingredient used in recipes is garlic. Don’t let your allium aversions keep you from reaping the benefits of this delicious foodstuff.

April Wine Tasting
April 13 – 15 Lemonscato from the Liuzzi family who brought us the wildly popular Mamamango. This is a beautifully balanced, gently sparkling blend of Moscato d’Asti and lemon juice from the famed orchards of Calabria – the “toe” of Italy’s boot. A perfect wine to serve for Easter brunch.
Guardian Cellars, Newsprint, Cabernet Sauvignon A bright blueberry nose is joined by concentrated, dense black cherry on the palate. The flavors are complemented with baking and pumpkin pie spice. This Cab is very full-bodied, yet has super soft tannins.
April 20 – 23 Just in case taxes sucked the life out of your checking account, we’ll be tasting some affordable and delicious boxed wine from Powers Wines.
April 27 – 30 Vino La Monarcha, 2016 Pinot Noir Rosé and 2014 Sangiovese. This is a label from Palencia Wine Company and it has been receiving great ratings. Is it because of the huge, bright butterflies on the bottles? You be the judge.
This just in…Madrid French Presses from Grosche! French press brewing takes a bit of patience, but lordy it’s worth it. See one in use at a hip coffee shop in Soho NYC plus get yourself some great tips for brewing right here. I’ll be testing one out in the next newsletter along with their manual coffee grinder so get yourself all excited for that.
En route…Just in time for spring cleaning: Mystic Mops and yes, Marilyn, mop head replacements!
That’s all for now. Think spring!
