Grazie mille, Marc Joseph. I always learn something in your classes, but this lesson takes the cake.
I spent way too much time the other night trying to open a screw-top bottle. The cap wouldn’t budge. I tried lots of tools, my nails, kitchen utensils, and the knife on my corkscrew, trying to sever the cap from the capsule. In the class Marc taught last night, he showed us how to do it and I picked out a screw-top bottle to drink tonight to test his method. Yes, I definitely drink screw-top wine. Love it. But that’s another post.
Simply hold the capsule with one hand. Ignore the cap — it will cooperate, really. Hold the bottle in the other hjand. Turn the bottle. Dang, that was easy. It’s the same theory as opening a bottle of champagne so I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me to try this before. But then, that’s why one attends classes. To learn more. Guess I’ll be signing up for his advanced class now.
