Drinking wine in Kalyani – Problem 2 of 3
Okay, so we got ourselves a bottle of Chianti after much jostling. We come home to my sister’s place and realize the obvious. Nobody drinks wine here. So, nobody has the need for a wine opener. My sister, of course, proudly fished out the most rusted-out beer bottle opener I have ever seen from a long forgotten corner of her kitchen. Again, to my sister, there is very little difference between beer and wine. They are just bad things.
Risking the ire of every oenophile of this world, I had to resort to a screwdriver, a tea strainer and some basic physics of pressure management. Again, where there is a will, there has to be a way – regardless of how inelegant it is 🙂
You really need to blog about this for me on @dallaswinechick.
when the spirit is unwilling, the flesh isn’t weak
You got Chianti in Kalyani? Bet you carried it with you 🙂
Loved the idea of a strainer!! Hilarious!!
This is the art of jugaad. Check out my experience making pizza in India. Where there is a will there is a way. http://foodydoody.wordpress.com/2011/12/09/the-art-of-jugaad-making-pizza-in-india/
Rajib, love the no whine ’bout the wine attitude.
Screw driver works. Instead of pulling the cork out you need to push it all the way in. That means, you got finish the bottle.
Melanie, sure. I will see if I can cross post from my original entries in my blog site – http://www.rajibroy.com
