Attention: Netflix subscribers

If you’re a Netflix member, check this out. For a onetime charge as little as $79 you can use the Netflix site to browse and add 17,000+ instant Netflix movies and TV episodes into your Netflix Instant Queue. Use your Roku to browse your Netflix Instant Queue and choose something to watch. Just hook up the Roku to your TV, pick your movie and watch as many movies or TV episodes as you like. They don’t have all the latest movies available but there are many good choices.

The other set top box to look for late this year is the Boxee Box. If you haven’t checked out Boxee, take a look. The Boxee Box lets you watch thousands of popular TV shows and movies for FREE on you TV!

Vegas Uncorked

Starts with a glass of Krug champagne at the bar.

This is a great event in Las Vegas sponsored by Bon Appétit. Last year we went to the Masters' Series Dinner: Restaurant Guy Savoy. This was in my top 10 best meals ever. It not only includes wine pairing but also bread pairing with each course. Guy Savoy also goes to each table to make sure you are happy with your meal. It‘s an opportunity to try the food from some of the best chefs in the world in one place. Highly recommended.

A few of the courses at Restaurant Guy Savoy:

The bread pairing cart

Truffles, layers of butter and tender pastry. One of the best things I’ve tasted in a long time.So simple but so good.

Guy is in the center and Bon Appétits Editor-In-Chief Barbara Fairchild is on the right.

The One

The New Logitech Harmony One Advanced Universal Remote Universal remote control is a great solution to a basket of remote controls. It has a web interface that programs your remote for you. You just tell it the equipment you have and what you want it to do and the web interface does the rest.

Flour + Water

OK, I had to try the new pizza place in my neighborhood. I have to say it was good pizza. I still have to try in again to give the final review. The chicken dish was really good, moist, well seasoned and lovely crispy skin.

More info later.

Molecular cooking

Le Sanctuaire
This is a very interesting web store I discovered. It's the place to buy your molecular cooking supplies in San Francisco. Cook like El Bulli.
