The Frugal Gourmet, with chef Jeff Smith, is an amazingly thorough video collection with over 80 episodes that include food recipes from around the world. In each episode, Smith demonstrates several simple but important recipes. In this episode, come along for a trip to the vineyards of Napa Valley. Then learn to finish your meals with elegance by including wine in your dessert. Recipes include Port and Chocolates, Cheese and Wine, Pears Poached in Port, and Wine Custard. Smith not only cooks, but discusses the theological and anthropological histories of the dishes he prepares. He brings humor and wide-ranging knowledge to the kitchen.
