Red Wine, Cheese, Bread and Cake

December 15th, 2008 Berlin

Matthias Reichelt brought a nice collection of red wine, cheese, bread and a cake. He will use the robot as a wedding gift.

1. Castillo Murviedro 2005 Valencia, Spain (Red) Dry nose. Fresh and fruity, sweet tannins, prunes, vanilla, spicy.

2. Gruyère is sweet but slightly salty, with a flavor that varies widely with age.

3. Gres des Vosges is a traditional soft-ripened, washed rind cheese. It is a true farmhouse delight.

4. The Moosbacher cheese owes its uniqueness to a double ripening process.

5. Sourdough (or, more formally, natural leaven or levain) refers to the process of leavening bread by capturing wild yeasts in a dough or batter, as opposed to using a domestic, purpose-cultured yeast such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

6. Panettone is a typical bread of Milan, usually prepared and enjoyed for Christmas and New Year around Italy, and one of the symbols of the city.
