If you missed the Cincinnati International Wine Festival, Wyoming Wines offers a chance to sip some of the best. The shop (1208 Springfield Pike) pours more than 20 festival medal winners at a special tasting beginning at 8:30 p.m. Saturday $25. 761-9463.
Broccoli raab, also called rape or rapini, is a bitter green related to the cabbage and turnip family. The leafy green has 6- to 9-inch stalks and scattered clusters of tiny, broccoli-like buds. Available fall through spring. Choose broccoli raab with thin stalks and just a few open flowers. There should be no smelly hint of over-the-hill cabbage. Wrap lightly in damp paper towels and then in plastic. Refrigerate no more than a few days. Before cooking, trim base of stems and chop stalks roughly. Braise broccoli raab with garlic and sprinkle of red pepper flakes; toss with pasta.
Samuel Adams Boston Lager $13 (12-pack): The Samuel Adams flagship label is brewed in Cincinnati, so you can't find fresher beer in a bottle. If you haven't tried it in a while, you should. A mild caramel malt flavor blends perfectly with the top quality European hops, making this old favorite a guaranteed winner. Especially good with pizza and seafood.
