The Palate goes to another fabulous Pittsburgh dinner party!


I can only say that I was at a party last night and there was a hundred year old bottle of Balsamic vinegar there. We each got spoons and put about an eighth of a teaspoon on them and indulged. Some did the pinky dip bit by bit. I rested my tongue on the edge of the drop and let it soak in, then licked the rest up. It had an amazingly rich flavor, like smoke and oak, but also like fermented prunes, although the sense that it was vinegar was still there. I wanted to try it on ice cream, but apparently in that house they only use 50 year old balsamic on ice cream.
