MichaelaPaigeSings FLASinger1 Youtube. com MichaelaPaigeSings MichaelaPaige the-voice artists michaela-paige Are you a singer song writer We would like to hear from you news hen we first heard about the wine tasting at The French Merchant we honestly did not know what to expect. We imagined the clientele the atmosphere and how it would be run. But it was not anything like we expected. It was an amazing place to simply socialize and taste wines from all over the world. What an incredible experience As we walked into the room it is dimly lit. We sat and heard the song bewitched being played. It was such a relaxing atmosphere. We got up and mingled. We sampled the Moscato and Pineapple. We were simply blown away by the sweet savory flavor and knew Immediately that it would be perfect for a holiday meal. We probably would never have ever tasted or heard about this gem had we not ventured into this event. This wine and cheese tasting event is held every other Friday at The French Merchant 139 N County Road Palm Beach Florida. 561-833-7712. Proprietor Maurice Amiel started the event two years ago. It is a great way for people to shop and to find Maurice s shop said Jennifer Oliver marketing assistant. And it s a great way to sell wines she added. Maurice travels all of over the world to determine what wines he wants for his store. He samples each wine personally before he decides if he wants to add it the inventory or not. When asks how Maurice chooses the wines for each event Jennifer said He picks wines that he wants to introduce to Palm Beach. Jennifer has only been working with Maurice since 2013 and she admits that her knowledge of wines was very limited. She has learned a lot since working with Maurice. It has really opened my eyes to the world of wines she said. Her response is exactly what Maurice hopes to accomplish with his biweekly gatherings. At our wine tasting three were wines from several countries such as Argentina South Africa and Italy. You are able to taste all of them. If you like any of the wines you are able to purchase it when you leave for a reduced price. Here is the list of wines that we had a chance to try 1. 2. 3. 4. Om Delorme Blanc De Blancs Brut Les Rials 2012 Charonnay 2011 Moscato and Pineapple W 5. Moscato and Coconut 6. Malbec 7. Urgate Rioja 2009 8. Chateau De Bonfils Bordeaux 11 9. Tomaoiolo Pinot Grigio 2012 10. Oracle Sav. Blanc. 2013 11. Chimmy Creek Sav. Blanc 2012 12. L Opale Rose 2012 13. Pinot Noir Brugandy 09 14. Pied de Perdrix 2010 15. Tommassi Rafael 11 This is a great way to socialize. There were ladies there for a girl s night out. We saw couples that came dressed up as part of a date night. Also there were people that came out after work to socialize with coworkers. There are an average of 50-75 people per event so it is really an intimate affair. We have regulars that live on Palm Beach said Jennifer Oliver. She said that 75 % of the clientele is generated from sales on Living Social Groupon and Travel Zoo so there is a steady flow of new people. When asked why people should attend Jennifer added simply They will meet people taste amazing wines they never knew or tasted. There were two stations and servers at each table. The wines were displayed and the servers could tell you not only what county the wine was from but also if it was sweet or dry as well as what foods should be served with it. It was like going to a wine tasting class. It was an incredible experience. Divya Khullar an attorney who was invited by one of his clients absolutely enjoyed himself. He has never heard of the event until that night. He said that It was awesome and that it was a great event. We learned from server Daniel Fox that the Tommasi would go well with steak or veal parmigiana and the Les Rials would be best if you were serving grilled chicken or tilapia. If you are looking for an interesting fun and new thing to do with friends or that special someone on a Friday night then why check out The French Merchant. You will not only have a chance to sample wines but have a wonderful time hanging with your friends. Step by step instructions on page 32 Fewer homeowners are in danger of losing their homes When the housing crisis hit the result was that millions of people found themselves in danger of losing their home to foreclosure. The struggling economy created financial hardships for homeowners and many needed to sell their home as a result. However because home values dropped so precipitously they owed more on their mortgages than the homes were worth. These homeowners are called distressed homeowners and in recent years they ve numbered in the millions. Today however these distressed homeowners may find themselves in a much better position. According to the National Association of REALTORS distressed home sales are at their lowest point since 2008 when the foreclosure crisis started. Since most of the distressed properties have been sold off they are no longer having such an intense effect on prices. This means that non-distressed sellers today find themselves in a much better position than at any point since the housing crisis began.

Safety Shopping BY Alicia Collins 1) Do not leave valuables and Christmas shopping bags in your car place them in the trunk safely out of sight. 2) Shop on days when the mall and stores are less crowded such as weekdays or Sunday mornings. 3) Park close to the entrance of whatever retailer you are visiting or near a lamppost. 4) When using an ATM be observant of your surroundings. Do not use an ATM late at Night. 5) Do not keep excess cash on you. Shop with what you need only or use a debit credit card. 6) Shop in pairs groups as a shopping buddy can distract potential robbers. 7) Pay attention to your surroundings and always be alert when in a busy retail environment for pickpockets or purse-snatchers. Always keep an eye on shady characters. 8) If you have 5 or more bags put them in trunk of your car then continue shopping. 9) Keep your credit cards safe by placing them in the proper protective casing. 10) Keep your cell phone close just in case you have an emergency. 11) Have kids Your kids should be supervised closely when shopping if you do not have to bring the kids out let them stay home. 12) If purchasing gifts online make arrangements for the neighbor to receive the package(s) from UPS or make arrangements to retrieve your package from UPS Location. 13) Avoid talking on the phone when packing bags into your vehicle. 14) Most large malls and some retailers have security on staff. If you feel uncomfortable by another shopper or are concerned about exiting the premises at night you can usually ask for an escort to your vehicle. When it comes to the holidays good food and great fun take center stage. For the many people that will be serving wine at their holiday festivities the enormity of the cost of supplying wine for a large crowd can be unnecessarily stressful. Many people shy away from affordable wines believing that the lower cost equals lower quality. I am here to tell you that is not always the case. While I am by no means a wine connoisseur I do pride myself on the fact that I have sampled many affordable wines both for an occasional imbibe and for cooking. Fortunately I have been lucky enough to come across two great brands of wine that meet both needs exceptionally without breaking the bank. First my new favorite wine is flipflop brand wine. Flipflop wines are multiple award-winners and are considered a Best Buy by Wine Enthusiast. Their affordable price makes flipflop an easy choice and the quality is exceptional. Collaborating with distinct winemakers to produce from the source wines that make flipflop a sensation winemaker James Foster is one of the leaders in the industry for affordable wine. One of the great things about flipflop wine is that they are available at many regular retail stores. The product is created to be affordable straight forward and ready to enjoy. On each bottle of wine you will find pairing recommendations as well as a summary of the flavors of the variety of wine you are considering. Simple flavorful wine is what you will get from every bottle. I highly recommend the Pinot Grigio if white wine is your preference. The subtle sweetness and gentle fruit flavors make it a great choice for enjoying alongside a meal or while relaxing afterward. My next venture with flipflop is their line of bubbly which is destined to be a winner if the smooth fruity flavors of their wine is any indication. Another favorite is Barefoot brand wines. Barefoot wine is another award-winning U.S. made wine that has passion and drive behind the brand. Founded by Jen Wall who is also a wife mother and charity supporter Barefoot wine packs a lot of flavor into a reasonably priced and readily available package. Barefoot wine is a fun flirty brand that is designed to be enjoyed with great food and friends. Barefoot wines heartily support consumers of all lifestyles and the brand is dedicated to improving communities all across the U.S. With a wide selection of wines champagne and sparkling drinks everyone will find something that appeals to their palate with Barefoot. Fun flavors such as Tropical Fusion Impression (blend of reds) and Perfectly Pink are great light and crisp wines that will tempt your senses and take your holiday get-together to a completely new level. As a fan of blush and dessert wines the Pink Moscato and White Zinfandel are definite favorites. Barefoot brand offers a variety of unusual red wines including Shiraz Malbec and Sweet Red all of which boast awards.

The cheesemonger is to cheese what the wine maker is to wine an artist. Each with their own passion vision and desire to create a sensory and journey that leaves you wanting more. So where to begin I have found there are a few basics that help us when we create a cheese plate to pair with our wine selection. 1) Keep it simple and limited. Present less than four cheeses. Much like perfume shopping tasting or smelling more then four cheeses can create palette fatigue which only creates a less than satisfactory experience. 2) Choose and pair cheese to increase in intensity just like a wine tasting. The lighter cheese and wine first leading up to the heavy most flavorful. This rule is the same even if you are pairing with all red wines. 3) Know your mission If you have a special bottle of wine you want to drink pair the cheese to the wine. Conversely if you find a cheese at your local farmer s market or cheesemonger that rocks your world find a wine that will only enhance that selection Its important to understand the components of the wine you will be drinking. Acidity tannins oak and alcohol are the components that will stand out and become dominate. These should be your focus when choosing a pairing. Additionally fat salt and texture in the cheese could dictate the success of the marriage of the wine to the cheese. Don t get frustrated There s no absolute or define way to say a certain varietal will go with a certain cheese. Remember our winemakers and cheesemongers are artists-the flavor profile is the one they create for us. You might be asking yourself Ok great but where do I even begin There are a couple of safe options Parmesan and Comte. These will pair naturally with any wine of good quality from Sauterne or Sparkling to a subtle pinot noir or burgundy moving up to a Bordeaux or even the biggest or youngest Napa Cabernet. Just try to make sure neither the wine nor the cheese over power each other. The experience should be a romantic dance on your tongue as the flavors unite When in doubt ask the professionals. When we choose cheese at the wine bar or even when we choose wine for a guest we ask a lot of questions. But as a base line we use the cart on page 4 as a guideline. Then to add a little elegance we like to garnish with roasted olives dried fruit candied walnuts and fruit compote. I hope you enjoy the not so perfect pairing.

Invite friends When the financial crisis hit the housing market changed dramatically. In less than a year prices dropped and the equity that homeowners had in their homes disappeared seemingly overnight. Many people who were ready to sell their homes at that time had to put those plans on hold until the market Recovered. No one will tell you that today s market has fully recovered but there are positive changes underway and the changes are happening rapidly. For homeowners who had to wait to sell their homes today may be the day they were waiting for. No one will tell you that market has fully recovered but there are positive changes underway and the changes are happening rapidly. You may now have equity in your home The reason is simple Prices have increased dramatically. Many homeowners may not realize it considering how far the real estate market fell when the housing bubble burst but in the past 12 months prices have actually rebounded at a fairly remarkable pace. In fact according to the Case-Shiller Home Price Index (a composite of prices in 20 major metropolitan area) prices rose 11.8% year over year in February of 2013. This is the biggest yearly increase in prices since November of 2005 when the market was almost at its peak. The result is that people are lining up to buy homes in today s market. So why have prices increased so quickly Provided by SHELDA HODGES PA SANDALS REALTY GROUP INC 500 S AUSTRALIAN AVE 6TH FLOOR WEST PALM BCH FL 33401 561-308-4663 SHELDA SHELDAHODGES.COM http Advertise with us And watch your news Nutrition Summary Calories 440 Fat 31g Carbs 37g Protein 8g There are 440 calories in 1 slice of strawberry cheesecake.
