Lush Life

To be a lush chef, does not mean to drink in excess - this can result in scary fires and bad dishes. A lush chef is one who enjoys gourmet cooking/baking, often with fresh ingredients and the smart use of one's home bar. If there happens to be half a bottle of beer, a glass of wine, or a sip of brandy left over...well, one cannot be wasteful. I give you permission to imbibe.

Macallan and Glenlivet are easy enough to say, but have you ever tried ordering a Bruichladdich or a Caol Ila at the bar?  You might have shied away from venturing on the wild side so you wouldn't sound like a clueless idiot to the bartender.  Well, fear not.  Thanks to Esquire, Scottish actor Brian Cox will walk you through the pronunciation of 40 scotch brand names.  Here's the link to hear all of them.  And if you ever run into the dear man, order him a Lagavulin — it's his favorite.
