                    [Title] => Cognac, I Like
                    [Summary] => My affair with the world of wines and cognac began nearly 25 years ago when Ijoined the La Chainedes Rotisseurs, a gourmet society. Five to seven different kindsof wine are paired with the food during a dinner. No water is servedexcept for medical reasons and dinner always ends with cognac and cigars.

                    [Summary] => Cognac is not for the faint-hearted, whether you are like Winston Churchill, who enjoyed his for breakfast; Victor Hugo, who christened it “the drink of the gods;” Kim Jong-il, who spent $1 million per year on it; or Kanye West, who declared, “It’s gonna be the death of me.”
