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.
Learn how to make champignon tourné. These fancy mushrooms are better known as fluted mushrooms in English. Chef Franco will show you how to make a fun design of Stars and Stripes as he shares some fluting tips along the way.
The secret is out! I have been chosen to be a guest chef/blogger for the travel site, VisitHelsinki.com. Follow me as I explore Helsinki’s burgeoning food scene.
