Vignettes

Did you know the word “vignette” comes from the french, and even earlier latin words for “vine” and “wine”?Nowadays, we use it to reference a short story, or a scene or tableau.Which is all very appropriate, I think.(All you local folks, get yourselves out to DC’s wine country to see how gorgeous the vineyards look just before harvest. These merlot and cabernet sauvignon grapes will be picked any day now! And for everyone else—a wine grape-inspired recipe is in the works.)
