Wow. That is possibly the coolest IMBB project (!) I've ever seen. Amazing. I would love to make this sometime for friends...actually it would be very interesting to serve it to my fiance -- who has very little (if any) experience with wine. Great entry for this uplifting theme!

I agree! Very original and innovative - cool!!


That's just brilliant. Are green grapes the same as white, or do you mean grapes used for white wine, such as chardonnay?

I am in awe. Too cool. Too creative. Bravo.


All - Thanks for your kind comments. It was definitely a fun dish to make and eat... something out of the ordinary!

Barrett - I'm glad you mentioned this, because I should have given it more thought. I used the green/white table grapes that are for eating, not the type used for making wine. I'm not certain which type the recipe is calling for - but I'm guessing wine grapes, as long as it's not meant to be a dessert dish. Table grapes would definitely give a sweeter flavour, while wine grapes would be much more tart.


Absolutely beautiful. I feel so inferior.


Before I even read a word I was struck by how beautiful the presentation was, but now that I understand what it is I'm just blown away. What an amazing concept. I really have trouble with the way wines are described - maybe this would help!




This is a very interesting write up. In an article that I contributed to the Journal of Mixology (to be published April 2006) I "deconstructed" wine, but in a different way. I actually took base ingredients and created a cocktail that tasted like wine.

Basically I took:
2 oz white grape juice (muscat)
1 oz pisco (vodka will work)
Tartaric Acid (local homebrew store)
1 tsp Green Tea

Mix these ingredients with ice and you end up with a wine like cocktail. It's aptly named the Plonk Cocktail.


The ingridients does it take to make that fancy one are one of the rich source of as white wine.


This soup has just got to be better with fine wine and few peanuts.

Simple and elegant. In most cases the simple use of knife skills presents the best garnish to a dish.
