Looking Forward to 2013

Given that world is supposed to end before my deadline, it almost seems foolish to write a story predicting what is to come in land of local food. If you are reading this, then I guess we all made it through alive. This is less of a prediction and more of a hope that we, as a community of people who eat, can use food to improve our health, our families and our lives in 2013.
Although, I tend to write almost exclusively about local food you should know that, above all things, I believe firmly in the value of a home cooked meal. Cooking awakens your senses and your desire for food that tastes good. Once you taste good food, it’s nearly impossible to go back. Once you learn to make...

2012: A Year in Review

When I moved to Omaha five years ago, there were only a handful of restaurants that I felt hit it out of the park with their dining experiences. However, in just this past year, so many new restaurants have opened that now bring the Omaha dining scene to an entirely new level.
Restaurants like J. Coco and Lot 2 elevate culinary expectations by delivering fresh, unique and innovative dishes. J.Coco gives us delicious classics like lamb and duck, and then also more innovative dishes like kurobuto pork chops and Korean style short rib tacos. All with their own flavor palates and wonderful tastes. Additionally, Lot 2 is changing the face of Benson with its upscale neighborhood dining...
