A Day With Brian And Jan

Having fun doing nothing! 

A Simple Day With Friends 10/8/2015 

We began the day at Cucina Enotica in Newport Center... We wanted to introduce Brian to "infusions"!

Did You Know? - Infusion is the process of extracting chemical compounds or flavors from plant material in a solvent such as water, oil or alcohol, by allowing the material to remain suspended in the solvent over time (a process often called steeping). An infusion is also the name for the resultant liquid. The process of infusion is distinct from decoction, which involves boiling the plant material, or percolation, in which the water passes through the material (as in a coffeemaker).
