Episode 176: Fire Your Wine Shop

March 3, 2001
Listen: Fire Your Wine Shop

If a snooty wine dealer has ever treated you badly, tune in this week for advice and anti-intimidation tactics you can use the next time it happens. Our guests, Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher, write The Wall Street Journal's "Tastings" column and are the authors of The Wall Street Journal Guide to Wines. They have definite opinions about what we should expect from a wine shop and tips for finding bargains.

Jane and Michael Stern are eating Spiedies at Sharkey's in Binghamton, New York. Matthew Goodman says the Jewish specialty kreplach doesn't get the respect it deserves and hopes to change that with his recipe for Sweet Potato-Stuffed Kreplach. Meat expert John Willoughby is back to talk mystery meats and give us a recipe for Lime-Soaked, Cumin-Crusted Grilled Skirt Steak with Green Olive-Chile Relish, and we'll visit a public school cafeteria in Boston where Chef Paul Correnty revamped the food, threw out the deep fryer, and the kids love fresh vegetables.
