Savor-the-Avenue is an exciting annual foodie event. The main street of trendy Delray gets closed for about a mile while 1000 people dine al fresco on one never-ending table. But, although it’s one long communal table, each restaurant decorates their section and vies for the ‘best table’ award. Continue Reading
St. Patrick’s Day — the world becomes a sea of green and everyone, Irish or not, celebrates. Even I put on a green t-shirt and set off for my first St. Patrick’s Day parade. I know. I’m a little old for it to be ‘my first’.
I walked the parade route up and down several times and had a surprisingly good time taking photos but then after 3 hours, I pooped out and left … before the parade actually started. Here’s a few photos and a fun and colorful slideshow of the festivities (pre-parade). Continue Reading
How do you rate restaurants? What’s your criteria? I realized last night when I visited the newly-opened Ceviche that I have a 3-prong criteria*, specifically Atmosphere, Food, Beverages. Let me show you how this restaurant hits all the marks.
*It’s a given that cleanliness and service are paramount. Continue Reading
The past weekend South Florida was pulsing with multiple outdoor food and wine festivals, each having events that spanned several days. Chief among them was the Boca Raton Wine + Food Festival and the Flavors of Fort Lauderdale event. And, if that wasn’t enough, the same weekend there was a Delray Wine +Seafood Festival, Lake Park Seafood Festival and some Peruvian Culinary Festival in Miami.
What’s a gal to do? One can only eat and sip so much. Continue Reading
Good news! I’m going to be the FOODalogue representative at the Boca Raton Wine + Food Festival’s Grand Tasting. (You didn’t think I’d send someone else, did you?) This 5-event affair takes place over the November 9-11 weekend and it promises to be spectacular! Event details and video follow. Continue Reading
Although we’ve been lucky for a number of years now, living in FL you know the drill and you don’t take chances. A couple days before a storm’s forecasted arrival: fill the gas tank, stock up on water and fresh ingredients — fruits, veggies, cheeses, crusty bread. Things that are easy to eat without power. And … while you still have power, start cooking what’s in the freezer.
I was prepared but once it was reality and I was stuck in the house till it passed, my thoughts went to comfort foods. So, with the first rain band, I got cooking – literally!
Most people who come to this blog know that I’m an enthusiastic and frequent traveler but my last trip really tested my nerves. It all but left me wanting to become a recluse and never venture out again.
Folks, the skies are no longer friendly and, worse yet, they really don’t give a s**t once you’ve paid your money. Downright incompetence and mistruths reign. Continue Reading
It’s a 4-hour drive from where I live in South FL to the Sarasota area and I’m not much of a ‘road trip’ kind of gal. But, circumstances put me on the road to Sarasota twice in the last few months.
What an adventure I had on Saturday … I was educated, inspired and satiated, all in my own neighborhood.
I’d been mildly aware of the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History but my antennae went up recently when I heard they were conducting cultural-historical-food tours in Boynton Beach and Delray Beach … which is where I live. Their trademark tagline is “There’s history in every bite.” And we got our fill of each! Continue Reading
