A Walk With The Master, Part 2 of 2

Just when I thought I had completely screwed up my chances of impressing Alan Richman (go ahead, laugh!), he surprised me. In the process of his characteristic blustery yet kind-hearted rant about my blatant lack of engaging description in my article, he “threatened” to take me on a walk around the block to teach me a thingContinue reading “A Walk With The Master, Part 2 of 2”

My Lucky Break – LUCKYRICE, Part 2 & 3

Of course, I meant to post this in a more timely manner. Such are the drawbacks of a demanding career and an addiction to continuing education (aka homework). Before I get into the past events, I just want to recommend that you take advantage of the LUCKYRICE Restaurant Week going on this week (May 3-9,Continue reading “My Lucky Break – LUCKYRICE, Part 2 & 3”

My Lucky Break – LUCKYRICE, Part 1

Tuesday’s Top Five – LA Edition

I’ve always been an East Coast girl, even when I lived on the West Coast. Even more so, I’m a New Yorker, and as such, I’ve been a little prejudice against Los Angeles for a good long time. For years my friend Amy has been trying to convince me of the wonders of life inContinue reading “Tuesday’s Top Five – LA Edition”

Where The Chefs Ate Tonight

(Note: the following is a completely unbiased account of a meal which we paid for in full, at a restaurant where we did not know any staff, owners, etc.) It’s been a while since Chef H and I did some wandering together. Tonight she suggested a burger place that she swore has the most incredibleContinue reading “Where The Chefs Ate Tonight”
