Episode: Good Wine Gone Bad


  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 hearts of romaine, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup finely grated Parmesan
  • Vegetable spray, for pan


  • Place vinegar in shallow pan and place in the freezer.
  • Allow the vinegar to freeze, approximately 2 hours.
  • Once frozen, scrape with a fork to create a shaved ice texture.
  • Return the vinegar to the freezer until ready to use.
  • Cut each heart of romaine in half lengthwise so that the root keeps each piece together.
  • Lightly brush the cut side of the romaine pieces with olive oil.
  • Season with the pepper.
  • Place the cheese in a shallow pan large enough to lay the romaine in and press the cheese firmly onto the cut side of the romaine until it adheres.
  • Spray a nonstick griddle or saute pan with vegetable spray and preheat over medium-high heat. Place the romaine in the pan and cook until the cheese turns golden, approximately 1 to 2 minutes Place the romaine, cheese side up onto plates and sprinkle with the vinegar ice.
  • Serve immediately.
