Braised Pork Chops with Creamy Savoy Cabbage — 4 Comments

  1. Our line in the sand with quaffing wine is also 3 euros in France and between R30 and R40 here. The difference is that whilst you can get a really good wine for that in France, you can also get something undrinkable and you certainly would not put it near your cooking. We have also found some of the reds in that range improve if you keep them a year or two. In South Africa you don’t get anything undrinkable in that range.

  2. I can get a really sweet Pinot for around $9. (Sweet being fine) and a couple of reds around that price that are smooth, pleasant and nice to cook with as well. But I tossed a lot of more expensive bottles because they’d turned vinegary and that’s just…ugh!

  3. Kate, yes, but to get on Ebay she would have to have turned a computer on LOL

    Gill, wine is even cheaper in Andorra and Spain – but also riskier…. One has to have some standards LOL

    nightsmusic, I hate it when I pay a bit for wine, keep it thinking it will improve, and then finding vinegar…. Fortunately, it doesn’t happen often….
