I'm not sure whether I'm proud or sad that I've never laughed so hard that wine came out my nose, but if I had cable you can bet I'd be sitting in front of the TV with a big mouthful of wine this Sunday as none other than John Cleese makes his debut as the host of a Food Network show called "Wine For The Confused." The show, in Cleese's own words is supposed to bring wine down to an everyman's level. "I felt it was a shame that something that is such a source of pleasure should have become restricted by all this snobbery."
If you manage to see it, would you post a comment and let me know how it is? I'd especially like to know what wine feels like as it comes out of your nose.
