Cecconi’s Shoreditch

Tucked off of the lobby of Redchurch Townhouse in Shoreditch is London’s second outpost of Cecconi’s. I’d visited the Miami outpost once and wasn’t wowed by it, but the prospect of room service Neapolitan pizza was very intriguing. I’d actually made a reservation for their “Sunday Feast” where they turn the bar into a buffet…

Bæst

Baest was a Beast. A beast of a pizza institution in Copenhagen. They have their own organic farm. They make their own cheese. They have a Relae chef affiliation. Setting the bar quite high, but after coming off of Pizzeria Giro, the bar was sky high. The restaurant had a cool, casual vibe. I was…

Miss Clara Cooks for Giro

Miss Clara was a wonderful lady to sleep with, but did I mention that she also cooks? And this charming terrace is where she serves you. That’s right, a real Renaissance woman. Apparently, the broad also packs picnics which was just too adorable for a single lady like myself to even attempt to take in…so…

Gusto 101

Two weeks of eating out every meal in Toronto was certainly an aggressive endeavor, but hey someone had to do it. After honestly, many a mediocre meal, the final night my sis and I dined at the often recommended Gusto 101, which was absolutely fantastic. I’m not sure if they take online reservations, but they…

Love Sweet, Love, Take 2

We heard from Chef Jaime and her Valentine’s Day plans. I thought you might be curious to hear what I’m preparing. I’m such a cheeseball, I do kind of love this holiday. Not in a fancy dinner and gifts sort of way, but more in a 5th grade arts and crafts sort of way. I’m…

Stuff I Ate in San Francisco

Fresh off of a romantic long weekend in San Francisco, I’m struggling with sleep and pondering why there aren’t afternoon cheese and wine pairings at my office. So, instead of showing you photos from our suite at the Clift hotel or snaps taken from blustery rooftops, I opt to show you snacks….  Crueller, homemade vanilla…

The Best Way to Cheat

Your Friday night side chick (or f*@k boy) is now a fake pizza. It’s like your main pizza, but offers you things he can’t..like…multiples…err multiple servings of vegetables and very few carbs. Maybe there could be a serious relationship here after all? I make this dish A LOT. And every time I make it, I…

Weekend Wrap-Up

Friday was an adventure of domestic errands run with the beau, just before getting caught in a thunderstorm. We followed it up by not having dinner and going to a party, at which point 2-3 glasses of wine in, the apparent need for dinner arose. Thank goodness we waited, because we found the best new…
