How to sharpen a serrated knife

Henckels Pro S 8-Inch High Carbon Stainless Steel Bread KnifeA friend recently asked me how to sharpen a serrated knife, and I realized I had no idea. I sharpen my chef's and paring knives at home on my sharpening stone. But I've never sharpened my serrated blade. Poking around online, I found a link that says you can sharpen on a stone by each individual blade serration. That sounds insanely time-consuming. Other sites say it should only be sharpened by a professional.

Anyone have any suggestions for how best to sharpen a serrated knife?

A creamy taste of Innsbruck

Tyrolean cookbookOne of my favorite things to pick up when I travel are local cookbooks. In Austria I purchased a Tyrolian Cookbook filled with recipes for "Marinated Leg of Mountain Goat" (which I haven't tried) and "Innsbruck Garlic Soup" (which I made last night). We had some great knoblauchsuppe (garlic soup) in Innsbruck, and Jason was anxious for me to recreate it.

I've posted the recipe, with a small change and some metric conversions, here: Innsbruck Garlic Soup. We found last night's soup to be more garlicky than the one we had on our trip, so I've slightly reduced the quantity of garlic. Aside from that, it was delicious. I'm looking forward to making this throughout the winter.

Parents Against Junk Food is…

Parents Against Junk Food is non profit organization devoted to eliminating junk food from our public school system. It's hard for me to believe that soda and candy are even sold in schools. They certainly weren't offered in any of the public schools I attended in the 1970s and 80s.

If you haven't already heard,…

If you haven't already heard, the 2005 Bordeaux is being touted as an incredible vintage. In an attempt to try to put it in its historical context, some Sherry-Lehmann (an NYC wine store) folks visited Chateau Palmer in Bordeaux. Now they're offering some pristine bottles of such legendary vintages as the 1945, 1961, 1966 and 1970 for sale in their store. You know, in case you've got $7,900 to drop on a single bottle of wine.
