Every once and a while I like to take a break from the food, recipe and travel posts that I normally blog about. Recently I was contacted by Recoverywell.org out of Wilmington, Delaware. They asked me to share their inspiring message of recovery on my blog. I am a big advocate of recovery programs. These programs save countless lives every day. I am a big advocate! The professionals at Recoverywell.org offer real hope and change for those ready and willing to clean up their lives.
Loantaka Brook Reservation offer a great opportunity to experience all your 5 senses in a stunning open air classroom.
Menus have become a launching ground of advertisement for local growers and producers. Is the local movement a good thing? Yes, you bet it is! Locally grown and made products are the epitome of freshness. Buying them helps to keep local businesses thriving. But, as a chef I feel menus need not describe every local products point of origin and not feel that you are trapped in a local movement.
As a blogger for the Helsinki Secret Residence, I was able to experience, as a local, the food, culture and beautiful nature of this city and its surrounding areas. Here in this post I share my Helsinki highlights with you all.
Jädelino is a quaint, friendly gelateria that serves top quality, homemade Italian ice cream in the the Teurastamo district of Helsinki. The flavors at Jädelino are very creative. I had a peanut butter-olive oil gelato that was extraordinary. The pistachio (made with an imported pistachio base from Sicily) and the tiramisu gelato are fantastic as well. I’ll be back! Once you’ve taste their delicious ice creams, you’ll be back too.
I had the distinct pleasure of working at the event with two very talented and highly accredited Tunisian chefs- Rafik Tlatli and Mounir Le Baroque. The best thing about working with chefs from other cultures beside your own, is the great enthusiasm that can be generated through a mutual admiration toward each other’s cuisine.
St. Petersburg is brimming with history along with gorgeous architecture, museums, parks, and canals. All are simply magnificent, and impossible to see and enjoy in one day. The various winding waterways will remind you of Venice, Italy and adds to the charm of this magnificent Russian city.
Carefully-crafted Tunisian olive oils are rich in nutrients. The majority is classified as organic and 80% as Extra Virgin. So Tasty, So Healthy!
Things are heating up this June. We are heading into New York City with the rest of the food world to gear up for the annual Summer Fancy Food Show at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, sponsored by the country of Tunisia.
