March & April 2014 Reading & Tasting


Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch, a New York-based non-fiction about a 13-year-old boy who miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother, and his journey into adulthood. It's on the longer side, but moves quickly. 


Beaujolais is more fruity and bright, as it's made with the Gamay grape. Beaujolais is named for its region in France, near Burgundy, and can be paired with almost anything, from fish to chicken, to steak, but is particularly delicious with tomatoey dishes.
