Chef Chat

Television networks still have a long way to go when it comes to developing great food programming in my mind, but I applaud them with a light 2-finger golf clap. If your favorite food shows include phrases like “y’all” or “E.V.O.O.” then don’t bother reading the rest of this article.

It is easy to be passionate about food in a perfectly decorated, Alice in Wonderland test kitchen, nestled in a spacious sound stage, with little culinary elves gathering your ingredients for every show. However, one chef in particular has dared to be original and his winning recipe is taking on the impossible. 

Whether it is impossible dinners or impossible restaurants, Chef Robert Irvine and his team...

The Grey Plume: A Love Story

On any given morning passersby might catch a peek of a platinum blond-curly haired boy stirring raw coffee beans on a prep counter or walking the pathway between white linen covered tables wearing puppy pajamas and rocking a pair of black cowboy boots.

A little red, blue and yellow push car sits parked near the entrance to the kitchen awaiting its rider – Hudson Grey. The sleepy boy is passed gently to Chef Clayton Chapman, while Hudson’s mom, Bernadette, starts peeling off layers, first a stocking cap and then a blue and green sweater. Clayton stood holding his 2-year-old son, pretended to gobble up his hands then disappeared with him into the kitchen, his voice trailing behind him,...

Dropping off a package of diapers at the brewery will get you in for a free tour and tasting during our tour hours. This is for a great cause that you can be a part of! The Lydia House is a division of the Open Door Mission, and all diapers will be distributed to needy, young mothers with infant children.

Spezia Is Not Just for Lunch

Spezia is easy to overlook, because it’s so consistently good.

I work down the street from Spezia, and it’s the popular choice for our holiday parties and going-away luncheons.

Its back rooms are often filled with professional groups, so I am probably not the only one to think of Spezia as a “business lunch place.”

My wife and I experienced Spezia after dark for the first time on a recent Saturday, and we came away predominantly pleased.

We started with the somewhat disappointing Artichoke Crab Dip ($9.95). The dip was a little too cold, and the crab tasted like it was from a can.

The bread, however, was warm and crusty, and our hard-working server must have spent 45 seconds...
