Benito’s Wine Reviews: A Great Resource for Food, Wine and Fun

Benito’s Thanksgiving Feast

Aside from dining with the late, great Julia Child, I can think of one other person’s table I’d like to be at this Thanksgiving if I wasn’t here in Telluride. I’d have to travel all the way across the country to Memphis where I’d happily find myself in the company of Ben Carter AKA Benito. This guy sounds like so much fun! And even better, he knows how to impart his enthusiasm and vast knowledge of food, wine, spirits and much more in his highly successful blog, Benito’s Wine Reviews. He’s passionate and from what I know about him, I’d describe Ben as a good ‘ole American bon vivant.

Ben Carter AKA Benito

Listen to our Travel Fun interview to hear what he has to say about his blog and so much more. In it, Ben discusses bitters, a random subject that I later discovered he covers in eight posts. I also noticed he has eight on Thanksgiving, thirteen on Beaujolais (one of my favorite November traditions here and in France) and forty-five on France. He’s my kind of guy. From pairing a Yuengling with a turkey sandwich to Christmas dinner suggestions, there’s always something you can glean from Ben’s blog, especially this time of year.

Benito’s Wine Review boasts over 1,000 posts since it was launched in 2005. That’s a lot of food, wine and fun. Thanks for all the sharing, Ben.

Please note that I’m working on some technical issues with this podcast and hope to have the interview up in its entirety soon. Thanks!
