A Tasting Party,

You know I didn't want to get too pedantic about the parlance but, a vertical would be peanut butters from different years. Different peanut butters would be a horizontal.

Like in wine. Tasting 10 consecutive vintages of the same wine would be a vertical. Ten wines from the same vintage a horizontal. Maybe this is a vertical of horizontals. Ah there, I feel better now.

Oooh, I finally have a use for the '98, '99, and '00 bottles of Tuscan 1% milk my roommate has left in the fridge. The '99 in particular, as I recall, made a particularly nice batch of Kraft Macaroni & cheese. It'll be interesting to see how the flavor has developed over time.

"I've caught you Richardson, stuffing spit-backs in your vile maw. 'Let tomorrow's omelets go empty,' is that your fucking attitude?" -E. B. Farnum

"Behold, I teach you the ubermunch. The ubermunch is the meaning of the earth. Let your will say: the ubermunch shall be the meaning of the earth!" -Fritzy N.

"It's okay to like celery more than yogurt, but it's not okay to think that batter is yogurt."

Limit on space? How about a limit on number of tastings that can be accomplished on one occasion? If everyone brought, say, six samples, that's one hundred and twenty varied mouthfuls. I am starting to feel slightly queasy.

Yes, we need a plan, some sort of menu.
