The varietal is named after the word daphne, which refers to the laurel plant that's prized for its bay leaves, and for good reason. A first sniff reveals layers of complex botanical flavors, ranging widely from juniper to eucalyptus, spearmint, and — dare I say? — laurel leaves. This bouquet's followed by a rich, long-lasting finish with a nice amount of acidity.
For less than $15 retail, it's hard to believe a wine can leave such an indelible impression. If you're looking for a white that tastes unlike anything you've experienced, this is it. Which whites are among the most memorable that you've ever had?
1 head garlic
1 teaspoon olive oil
1∕2 serrano pepper
4 Hass avocados, halved, pitted, and peeled
Juice of 1 lime
1 1∕2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1∕2 cup chopped cilantro
Tortilla chips, for serving
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Slice the top off the head of garlic. Place the garlic on a sheet of aluminum foil and drizzle with the olive oil. Wrap the garlic tightly. Roast for about 30 minutes, depending on the size of the garlic, until soft and golden brown.
- Let cool completely. Squeeze the peel of each clove to release the garlic.
- In a food processor, combine the garlic, serrano, avocados, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Pulse until chunky. Transfer to a bowl and stir in cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips.

Emeril Lagasse, the original celebrity chef, is debuting a new show this Thursday on the Cooking Channel at 10:30 p.m EDT. On The Originals, the culinary legend pays homage to iconic food institutions that have stood the test of time.

In the editor's letter, Reichl describes the site as "a new kind of magazine, one that has no ads and is supported solely by sales. We don't just want to sell you great products — we want to tell you the stories of the people who create them and inspire you with delicious new ways to use them." When it comes to the shopping side of Gilt Taste, there's a variety of artisan America products ranging from caved-aged cheese from Murray's Cheese to white truffle cream from Gourmet Attitude.
While I doubt that I'll be purchasing many of the groceries, I'm excited to try the recipes and read the informative and thought-provoking articles that are sure to be highlighted on Gilt Taste. What do you think of the website?
