London Now – Part 1

London Now – Part 1

I think it’s the rain today and the warm, balmy weather that made me think of my recent trip to London, from which I have not shared anything with you yet. If you follow me on Facebook, you probably saw some pictures of amazing food, but nothing more, really. So it’s time to spread the London […]

The Wedding Library

The Wedding Library

I always thought that the best business ideas are born out of a personal discovery that something is missing, that there is an unfulfilled need, a gap that has to be closed. Claudia Hanlin had just such an epiphany. She was getting married and had an idea for a 3-day celebration and realized there was no one-stop shopping place that could expertly […]

Rouge Tomate

Rouge Tomate

I’m always on the lookout for restaurants that embody the same food philosophy as my own kitchen – respect for the body, respect for the food, respect for the planet. The truth is, you can’t separate those three elements. There is no delicious and healthy food without locally sourced and responsibly grown ingredients. Throw beautiful […]
