Rufus Turns Four

Today marks four years since we started our blog. We’d like to thank all of our regular readers, those who’ve been with us since the start and those who joined a bit later. You’ve been a wonderful source of encouragement and inspiration. If you’re new to the blog, or only stop by occasionally, we appreciate that too. We look forward to year five, although we’ve realized there are so many great recipes we’ve made and never remade that we’ve pledged to try to revisit those. That means we might not post every day, but we’ll just have to see. We should probably be more sentimental, but instead we’re just going to raise our glasses. We’ve each picked four of our favorites to mark the occasion. Greg’s are the first four and Katherine’s the second.

No we won’t be drinking them all in one go. But only because some of the ingredients aren’t in season!

About Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
