Celebrity chef dabbles in Scotch

Marine Corps captain Matthew Phelps and his partner, Ben Schlock, made history in 2012 by becoming the first gay couple to become engaged at the White House. Phelps told HuffPost that he wanted to propose at the White House because they had their first date there, at the LGBT Pride Month Reception, six months earlier. Isaac’s Live Lip-Dub Proposal In the first viral lip-dub proposal (but not the last), Isaac Lamb had his girlfriend sit in the back of a truck as they drove through a Portland park, then played Bruno Mars’ “Marry You” while dancers popped out and lip-synched to the song. The proposal, which took place in May 2012, now has more than 18 million views on YouTube. Meme Proposal Tim Tiah proved just how useful those popular internet memes can be when he proposed to his girlfriend, Audrey, in 2011. While Audrey was at a restaurant with friends, Tiah stood outside and held up signs containing memes that corresponded to their relationship, ultimately using the Puss In Boots meme to pop the question. Fake Movie Trailer Back in 2011, Matt Still convinced his girlfriend, Ginny, to go to the movies one day — then, he arranged to play a fake movie trailer before the movie that chronicles his journey to the theater to pop the question. “Mobbed” Flash Mob In 2011, Fox T.V. show “Mobbed” featured an epic marriage proposal. Groom-to-be Justin recruited 1,000 people to participate in an over-the-top flash mob for his girlfriend, Nikki. Keep in touch!

That was the thinking when The Dalmore, a whiskey with roots going back to 1839, partnered with French-born, New York-based chef Daniel Boulud on this limited-release bottle (just 1,000 will be made available, sold through high-end wine and liquor stores as well as eventually through the chefs online store ). Even though he keeps busy running 14 restaurants around the globe, serving a $32 braised rib and foie gras burger, among other dishes, Boulud was actively involved in creating the spirit, working with Dalmore master distiller Richard Paterson on selecting specific barrels to create the final blend, which includes whiskies aged up to 18 years. (But its a mistake to call the final product a blend since all the whisky in it originates from a single distillery.) I wanted a generous, full-bodied whisky, but with aromas of caramel and also some candied orange and toasted praline, says Boulud. Um, who says Frenchmen drink only Cognac? Key stat: Click to Play Daniel Boulud tries his hand at Scotch After months of working with the renowned distillers at The Dalmores, chef Daniel Boulud is offering a bespoke single malt based on the cuisine of his restaurants. Charles Passy joins the News Hub for Weekend Sip. (Photo: AP) The Dalmore (and the brand name always has The in front of it) has gained a reputation for offering some of the worlds most expensive and sought-after whiskies. A case in point: The recently released Richard Paterson Collection 12 bottles of whiskies that date as far back as 1926, packaged together for $1.4 million. That makes the $200 Boulud bottle a steal by comparison. Also see: 10 things celebrity chefs wont say What we think about it: Bouluds whiskey lives up to its heavy promise at least on the nose. We especially pick up those scents of caramel and candied orange. But its not as thick on the tongue: Theres a kind of clarity to the Scotchs sweetness like a dessert wine, but one thats smartly devoid of anything syrupy or cloying.

Celebrity Summit

EDT October 2, 2013 Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Summit. SHARE 6 CONNECT 34 TWEET COMMENTEMAILMORE More than 300 passengers and crew on the Celebrity Summit have been hit with a stomach bug identified as norovirus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The ship is on a two-week Canada/New England sailing, which embarked from Bayonne, N.J., on Sept. 21 and is due to return there on Saturday. In response to the outbreak which the CDC said affected 14.5% of passengers and 1.5% of crew onboard a beefed up cleaning and disinfection plan has been put in place on the ship. The CDC is also working with the cruise line on how to deal with “active cases” and cleansing procedures for when the ship returns to Bayonne. Through its Vessel Sanitation Program, the CDC said it would send an epidemiologist and an environmental health officer to meet the ship and do a health assessment, as well as to monitor sanitation procedures. The predominant symptoms of the gastrointestinal illness are vomiting and diarrhea. “Those affected by the short-lived illness have responded well to over-the-counter medication being administered onboard the ship,” said Celebrity Cruises spokeswoman Cynthia Martinez. “At Celebrity Cruises we have high health standards for all our guests and crew. During the sailing, we are taking a number of steps to prevent the transmission of the illness, including implementing enhanced cleaning procedures and protocols, and using special cleaning products and disinfectants that are proven to kill norovirus to clean throughout the ship. These activities will continue as the sailing proceeds,” Martinez explained. Ill passengers on the current sailing were confined to their cabins to prevent further spread and will be compensated for their lost vacation time, she added. Martinez said an “extensive and thorough sanitizing onboard the ship and within the cruise terminal,” would also take place in Bayonne to prevent the illness from affecting the ship’s next sailing also on a Canada/New England itinerary, embarking Saturday. Passengers booked on that sailing who are uncomfortable taking the cruise for reasons “related to personal health or otherwise,” will be able to reschedule their cruise, Martinez said.
