Our “Throwback” Italian Easter Dinner

Easter dinner was an homage to “Nanny”, my brother-in-law’s mother, with whom we shared many Easters when we lived in New York. My sister did most of the cooking and, true to tradition, it was multi-coursed, calorie-laden, acid-inducing and molto delizioso. Continue Reading

What’s for Breakfast? A Creative Cooking Crew Challenge

I’m not a boxed cereal kind of gal. Not when I’m alone — and certainly not when I have company.

For challenges (and all-round eating out of the FOODalogue kitchen), I rely on what’s on-hand. Anything that’s not fresh or healthy(ish) is kept to a minimum … a pinch, sprinkle, dusting or dollop.

The Epicurean: A Hotel Dedicated to “The Good Life” with a Little Bit of Whimsy

Walking into the Epicurean lobby one gets an immediate sense of the attention to detail that went into the development of this unique property that tickles the palate, literally and figuratively.

It’s not your average reception area — wine racks are desks and the ceiling and walls were made with crates from Bern’s Steak House’s legendary wine collection.

The Best Rice Salad Ever!

Just look at that mise en place — and it only partially reflects all the ingredients.
