Lady Somm Style: Shebnem Ince

Lady Somm Style: Shebnem Ince

REPOST

Chi-town in the hizzy! Everyone, say hello to Chicago’s Shebnem Ince, Wine Director of Henri and The Gage, and one of Food & Wine’s Top Sommeliers of 2011. We have yet to meet, but I know that if ever we do,  she will most definitely make me laugh my ass off, paint my nails a shade of terroir and teach me a thing or two about Burgundy.

How did you become a sommelier?

“My Dad was in the wine industry and I grew up with wine all around me. Our halls were lined with Burgundy, Bordeaux, Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Cote-Rotie. And 1970′s vintages of Charles Heitz Martha’s. I was always obsessed with the various bottles and begged him to tell me about them all the time.”

What’s your daily uniform for work?

“Real boring. I wear the same thing every day, a black skirt, oxford blouse, black suit jacket, and black shoes with a low heel. No jewelry. Hair back (when it is long in a chignon, when it is short, with a head band). The conversation needs to be about wine so I try to appear as neutral as possible. I do sometimes write things on my hands with a sharpie marker (like a producer’s name, single vineyard I like, or vintages) just to be a punk. I do dye my hair a lot and grow it out long and then cut it. I also like wearing nail polish that corresponds to favorite terroirs; white for limestone, brown or grey for slate, blue for schiste. I have not found a good one for clay yet. Revlon TopSpeed makes some awesome colors and it dries super fast.”

Do you transition your outfit from daytime duties to nighttime floor action?

“I leave ironed shirts and my work shoes at work; I bring in stockings and the suit. I change in the ‘ family bathroom’ which is a lockable bathroom with a baby changing table and a single commode. In the internal vernacular at The Gage and Henri, it is called ‘the condo’. It is not very well-ventilated and let’s just say it is the place where all the morning BOH staff tends to go and linger with magazines after their coffees. It is a stinky, stinky little room. Sometimes I hold my breath the whole time which is hard when you are trying to get into a pair of pantyhose. I do fear that one day I will pass out in there, half-naked with a pair of pantyhose at my knees and they will have to get the fire department to break the door down with an axe.”

What are the 3 things you can’t leave home without when heading to the restaurant?

“Lip gloss, wine key, pen. I like the Uniball Vision Elite pens best but they always get stolen from me.”

Three things a somm should never do or wear?

1) Wear perfume. I know I realize this gets said a lot, but you’d be surprised at how many trade tastings you go to and people are bathed in applied scents.

2) Smoke. How the fuck can a somm smoke?

3) Wash with Gain laundry detergent and/or Bounce dryer sheets. I smell these things on clothes in elevators sometimes and feel like I am choking to death. Also, spraying Febreze is an affront to my existence, I cannot stand the smell of it. I do not believe those commercials when they lead people in to a dirty, garbage and old fish bones filled room and spray Febreze, and the people say it smells like a tropical island or a caramel candy. Bullshit!

Favorite wine on your list at Henri right now and what you usually drink at the end of a shift.

“I love Burgundy as much as one can love anything. After my shifts at Henri I go next door to our other restaurant, The Gage, and get a glass of Bourgogne Blanc, which I always have by the glass there. Right now we are pouring the Boyer Martenot 2010 and I have some Francois Carillon 2010 lined up when that runs out. If I were rich and had a house wine, it would be Freddy Mugnier‘s Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses 1er Cru. It’s a perennial heartbreaker.”

    Po bonusie bez depozytu czekają na Ciebie inne oferty. Dla nowych graczy dołączających po raz pierwszy do BetSofa są dwie oferty: kryptowalutowa i fiat. Jeśli wolisz obstawiać za pomocą karty kredytowej lub debetowej, otrzymasz 111% bonus od pierwszego depozytu aż do 1111 € oraz 111 darmowych spinów. To zdecydowanie niecodzienne numery, ale jesteśmy pewni, że nikt nie będzie miał nic przeciwko. Aktualne bonusy bez depozytu kasyno pomagają przyciągnąć nowych klientów. Jest to ważne, jak dla każdej innej firmy. Bez graczy kasyno online w Polsce nie może funkcjonować, a ponieważ na rynku kasyn jest duża konkurencja, oferują one promocje, aby zwrócić na siebie uwagę. Szczególnie jest to istotne dla nowych marek wśród kasyn online, które dopiero muszą wyrobić swoją pozycję i konkurują z firmami działającymi na rynku od lat. Dzięki takiemu bonusowi gracze bez stresu mogą poznać nowe kasyno.

    Zakładając konto w kasynie bez weryfikacji danych, musimy ustalić nazwę użytkownika i hasło. Wpłacając pieniądze, podajemy dane swojego banku lub metodę płatności, którą wybierzemy, żeby operator serwisu bez weryfikacji wiedział, gdzie ma przelać wygrane pieniądze. To jest oczywiście wielka wygoda, bo omijamy proces podawania danych, jak to ma miejsce w tradycyjnych kasynach online. Gracze wiedząc o takich możliwościach, poszukują tego typu platform. Zachwyceni takim serwisem, nie interesują się nawet czy posiada licencję i jest legalne. Pojawia się wiele stron hazardowych, które są otwarte na graczy i umożliwiają wykupywanie zakładów, nie pytając zupełnie o nic. Hazard od zawsze kojarzy się z czymś nielegalnym. Wielu Polaków uważa, że hazard to domena kryminalistów lub nielegalnych biznesów. Nic bardziej mylnego.

    Eine kompliziertere Fundamentalstudie zielt darauf ab, die Nachfrage der Währung zu ermitteln. Der tatsächliche Bitcoin ändert sich nicht sehr schnell. Da das Netzwerk so zuverlässig ist, ist es schwierig, Schätzungen mit aktuellen Technologien zu modifizieren. Die Art und Weise, wie Menschen Bitcoin verwenden, kann jedoch von makroökonomischen Umständen beeinflusst werden. Investoren können Bitcoin-Maßnahmen wie On-Chain-Aktivitäten verfolgen und ein Auge darauf haben, wie sich die Meinungen bekannter Investoren ändern. While turnover on Thursday declined from the frenzied volumes seen overnight, May contracts still showed more than 6,000 contracts traded. Similar trends were observed on CME’s micro bitcoin futures where nearly 95,000 contracts were traded on Wednesday.

    First off, how could we not include one of the most classic board games that you and your friends can easily spend hours on end without getting bored. Now, you can play Monopoly online without possibly having to argue with your friends on why they can’t take your plot of land. Play it here and there’s other classic board games like Scrabble for you to access for free too! Besides that, this next one is also a big hit as well. And it’s one of the most popular games from the party-favourite online game – Jackbox Games. This game simply “draws” from concept of having you and your friends to draw on your devices based on given prompts. Meanwhile, everyone else anonymously submits a title that could fit this bizarre drawing. Your goal is to find the correct prompt while fooling your friends into selecting your decoy answer. What’s great about Drawful 2 is that you can craft an episode around inside jokes and events with your friends!

    Водостойкая тушь хорошо подходит для дождливого сезона. Её можно использовать весной и осенью, когда идёт мокрый снег, а также для похода в бассейн или на пляж. Это косметическое средство содержит стойкие синтетические вещества, поэтому оно не подходит для ежедневного использования. Применяйте водостойкую тушь только для особых случаев. Суперудлинение или суперобъем? Теперь тебе не придется выбирать. Необычная щеточка, отличная проработка каждой реснички и легкость в удалении: тушь смывается просто теплой водой! Какая хорошая тушь для ресниц, правда? У меня тоже хорошие отзывы об этой туши, очень классная недорогая и действительно хорошо подлечивает и восстанавливает ресницы! Рекомендую. Наносите, как минимум, раз в день, как обычную тушь, в течение 30 дней без перерыва. С недавних пор я заметила, что мои ресницы стали ломкими и тусклыми, пользоваться тушью на постоянной основе конечно же не хочется, наткнуась на вашу статью и решила спасти ресницы, избавиться от несовершенств, и укрепить реснички, сделать их более здоровыми. В статье все подробно описано, как о средствах для роста ресниц, так и о полезных привычках, о которых я не знала.

    Воздух — вот причина засохшей гелевой подводки. Лишиться его невозможно, а рисовать стрелки, ой, как хочется. Если средство имеет твердую консистенцию (например, как у карандаша или фломастера), брови штрихуют. Гелевая же или кремообразная подводка наносится щеткой, которая обмакивается во флакончик. Не нужно набирать на такую кисть большое количество состава, иначе можно получить слишком темные волоски. Что касается техники нанесения теней, то они всегда накладываются в сухом виде кисточкой со скошенным концом. Для нанесения гелевой подводки на веки желательно использовать «родную» кисточку. Это самый удобный вариант для прорисовки стрелки. Чтобы макияж держался дольше, особенно на жирной коже век перед нанесением подводки нужно покрыть глаз специальной базой под тени. В крайнем случае просто припудрите веки. Американский бренд специализируется на выпуске гипоаллергенной декоративной косметики. Одной из новинок этой компании является гелевое средство, которое не растекается и придает бровям выразительный вид. Декоративный продукт наносится в несколько движений и легко смывается очищающим средством или водой с мылом. Очень важно, что подводка для бровей от Inglot не вызывает аллергических реакций.

    – Organizujemy mistrzostwa Polski w pokera w Bratysławie, bo w Polsce to niemożliwe – mówi Cezary Kiełpinski. – Jeden turniej odbędzie się w formule „open”, w której będą mogli wziąć udział także obcokrajowcy, drugi przeznaczony będzie tylko dla finalistów Legalnego Pokera. Zagra tam około 700 osób. Zostawią pieniądze za noclegi, za jedzenie i rozrywki. Mogliby te pieniądze zostawić w Polsce. To pokazuje, że nasz system prawny jest zły. Chcielibyśmy mistrzostwa organizować w stolicy, to moje marzenie. Naszym partnerem jest: – Oczywiście, było trudno – mówi. – Procent szczęścia musiał być po mojej stronie, jednak, tak jak uważam ja i większość graczy, jest to gra umiejętności połączona z elementem losowym. W pewnych momentach umiejętności te przeważały, ja stawałem się bardziej pewny w niektórych sytuacjach, co pomagało w zdobywaniu większej ilości żetonów. W pewnym momencie wiedziałem już nawet, że raczej ten turniej wygram – opowiada.

    Teoretycznie w przepisach gry w tę odmianę pokera nie ma żadnych ograniczeń, co do liczebności zawodników. Ze względów czysto praktycznych przyjmuje się, że maksymalnie przy jednym stole może znajdować się dziesięciu graczy. Ten fakt pozwala na dynamiczną i uporządkowaną rozgrywkę. Znajdź nowych znajomych, zaproś ich do stolika, czatujcie i grajcie razem. Jak to działa? W teorii – bardzo prosto. Program połączony jest z olbrzymią bazą danych potencjalnych stanów gry. Stając przed koniecznością podjęcia decyzji przeszukuje on ją w poszukiwaniu analogicznej sytuacji i wybiera ruch, który według jego danych jest w tym momencie najkorzystniejszy. Problemem było jednak samo skonstruowanie takiej bazy. Zaczęto od uruchamiania programu tak, by grał sam ze sobą i zapisywał w pamięci rezultaty wszystkich posunięć.
