Toasting Summer Farewell
The leaves will soon be coloring our wonderful city from the summer greens to the vibrant yellows, oranges, and reds. It’s one of my favorite times of year to host delicious food tours. The summer’s heat will soon be pushed out by the autumn breeze, and we don’t have to worry about […]

    Come Stroll With Me in September for the Unique Tastes of Philly

Come Stroll With Me in September for the Unique Tastes of Philly

Tastes of Philly
The heat of the summer will soon be over for us Philadelphians with Fall only thee weeks away. Fall is the perfect time to do something unique before the busy and cold holiday season sneaks up “putting too much on our plates.” No pun intended. It is always about food with me.

That […]

Tour de France Eat, Drink, Rest and Repeat!

 

Before I get too busy cooking, touring and mingling in my wonderful, South Philly neighborhood of exceptional restaurants and friendly shops, I want to share some wonderful memories of the wonderful food, the flavorful wines and the artistic landscapes from our annual, culinary tour de France. The memories and the tastes will last me […]

Mad for Madeleines

This year, I took out my madeleine recipe for one of my cooking classes and it brought back a flood of fond memories.

Basting Tip: Do you like to baste your turkey with butter? Place […]

Bottoms Up! My Trip to New Orleans!

I’ve always wanted to go to New Orleans. New Ahhhhlans. You have to say it like that. I’m serious.

A few weeks ago, to celebrate my wedding anniversary, I got my wish and the hubby and I headed down to NOLA! Truly, there’s no other place like it in the world.

New Orleans has such a […]

Hot damn! I’m a DAME!

Best of Philly Soirée 2016!

So last night, my culinary partner in crime, Lisa Lusby, and I went to The Best of Philly Soirée at Dilworth Park, right there at City Hall.

You know, when I go to these events, I actually sort of get butterflies in my stomach! I’m always full of excitement and not knowing what to expect, […]

White Hot Dîner en Blanc Menu 2016!

Wednesday night’s pop-up shop event at Williams Sonoma at the Bellevue was white hot—and just stoked my excitement for Dîner en Blanc Philadelphia 2016!

So here’s the thing about DEB–the location is kept a total secret until only minutes before–and each guest has to bring everything needed for a “chic pop up picnic”–food, china, settings, […]
