Sept. 20-26, restaurants participating in the first Boston Wine Week will offer wine at reduced prices: $9 per glass and $32 per bottle. The event aims to showcase hand-crafted wines from around the world.

This might mean a 2006 J. Hofstatter Gewurztraminer at Bina Osteria, where it's usually $75 per bottle; or a 2001 Castellani Soave Classico at Jer-Ne, where a bottle on other weeks will run you $84. Other participating restaurants include Bin 26 Enoteca, Lala Rokh,
75 Chestnut, Clink, The Hungry i, Beacon Hill Bistro, Woodward, Locke-Ober, The Beehive, Petit Robert (South End), and Brasserie Jo.

Boston Wine Week will also feature talks with local wine folks: On Sept. 20, Tyler Balliet of the Second Glass will be at Bina from 6-7 p.m., pouring and talking about selections. (Free food alert: There will be complimentary pizzette.) On Sept. 21, Richard Elia of the Quarterly Review of Wines will be at Bin 26 from 6-7 p.m., offering featured wines with paired cheeses.

Check the website for updates on restaurants and talks.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
