THIS WEEK: Is sherry cool to drink or something only Grandma orders?
I gotta stick up for my misunderstood pal, sherry. I, too, used to think it was some overly sweet stuff that old people ordered at stuffy restaurants. But then I learned how versatile this fortified wine made in the Jerez region of Spain really is. There are dry sherries, sweet sherries and plenty in between. Whether it's a super-dry fino for sipping with cheese and olives or a syrupy, rich Pedro Ximenez poured over vanilla ice cream, I will order it every chance that I get.--Lisa Arnett
