    I couldn’t help but mention/comment on a misnomer you mentioned. I always have mad respect for your shows, you know your wine stuff hands down, but one slight correction on the food places you mentioned for the Touraine wine, none of the countries you mentioned are considered “Far East Asian”.

    Vietnamese, Thailand, Singapore, etc. are all considered “South-East Asia”, big difference, South-East-Asia (the countries and style of food you mentioned) you’re talking about hot-tropical-jungle-like climate to “Far East Asia” being the regions of North East China, Korea, Japan, etc. very different food, very different regions, very different countries, mixed it up, drove me nuts! It’s like saying I love South-American food, when describing Poutine from Easter- Canada.

    Ok, end rant, you the man, rock on~
