Power Couple

Jennifer Axinn-Weiss creates Gourmet Giggles (a clever cartoon that runs in each issue of Hudson Valley Connoisseur magazine). Not only is Jen a creative and insightful cartoonist, she’s also a talented artist. Her solo art exhibition, Tools for Detecting Angel Wings, runs through April 27 at Montgomery Row in Rhinebeck.

Jen’s husband, Michael Weiss, is Hudson Valley Connoisseur’s wine columnist. It’s been a good year so far for the couple. Last month, Michael was honored by the European Wine Council as Wine Educator of the Year for 2007. It’s an honor he shared with Steven Kolpan, his colleague at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, during an event at Le Cirque in New York City. Both men are CIA professors in wine studies.
