[MUSIC] I'm Justin Chapple from Food & Wine's Test Kitchen.
Join me as demonstrate Mad Genius tips. [MUSIC] Who owns
a cherry pitter? I don't own a cherry pitter. Do
you own a cherry pitter? And this tip shows you
how to pit cherries without one using a plain old
empty wine bottle. Preferably one that you enjoyed the night
before. And a plain chopstick. So what you're gonna wanna
do Do is take a nice big plump cherry, you're
gonna set it right on top of the wine bottle,
just like this, and remove the stem to reveal this
cute little divot in the cherry which is gonna be
your guide to where the pit is. With the wide
side of your chopstick and with just a little bit
of pressure you knock the pit right into the wine
bottle, [MUSIC] and you have this Perfectly pit, delicious cherry.
And, if you're me, because you can't wait to eat
cherry pie, you're gonna eat it right now. Let's try
it again. [MUSIC] Right on top of the bottle, and
push. It's like magic. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO] Hi I'm Anthony Giglio,
Food & Wine expert and educator. People often ask me
to pair a wine with premium chocolate. So if I'm
drinking a medium bodied fruity red like this Pinot Noir,
Lindt Excellence a touch of sea salt is a great
choice. The dark chocolate with fleur de sel intensifies the
depth of the wine. And together you have a perfect
pairing. Pure, rich, intense and refined.
