What's Hot Is Hot!
Wander through the pepper section of the condiment aisles or pick out a few fresh peppers. Experiment. It's good, and good for you -- as Madeline is fond of saying, "Eat, and enjoy!"
Jerk: Jamaica's answer to American barbecue
t may not have the plate presentation of sushi, a fancy name like tandoori or require expensive, exotic seasonings like saffron, but jerk cooking has been making its way into restaurants across America and throughout the world since the 1980s.

The Perfect Martini
The perfect Martini is elusive. You're unlikely to find one in a bar-- most of today's bartenders are part on the Pina Colada generation and don't have the patience or expertise to do the job correctly. If you want one, you're probably going to make it yourself.
Confessions of a Reluctant Yerba Mate Drinker
Yerba mate, or Ilex paraguariensis, comes from an evergreen tree that grows up to 20 meters high in the wild, but when cultivated is usually between 4-8 meters. The caffeinated drink, which takes its name from a Spanish word for herb and the Quechua for cup, supposedly has numerous health benefits and has been popular in South America since ancient times.

The best rums today, we are told by the experts, now stand on the Cognac plateau and many should be considered as sipping drinks. If you must have a mixed drink, then it is in your own best interest to marry your precious spirit to equally upscale partners.
