Top Chef's Rich Sweeney of Southpaw Social Club Wants San Diegans to Share

Sep 3, 2013  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

I’m kind of a foodie, well, in the sense that I love food and like being linked to trendy words or terms. (If you call me a ‘hipster’ I’ll probably high-five you while throwing out a “YOLO!” your way). And then there’s baseball, America’s pastime, and another personal favorite of mine. Okay okay, I’m getting to the point of all this. Recently, San Diego’s East Village neighborhood got a new watering hole courtesy of Good Time Design and Chef Rich Sweeney. As luck would have it, it combined two of my loves: food and baseball.... Read More

Aug 22, 2013  |   Contributor: Tim Cotroneo

For nearly four years, Chef Mike Vargas played hard to get. Each time he received a call from Anthony "Tony" Dawodu, the Executive Chef at the Caneel Bay Resort in St. John, Vargas would reply that he would consider working at Caneel Bay — one of the most beautiful restaurants in the U.S. Virgin Islands — when the time was right. That time came in 2009, when Dawodu made Vargas an offer he couldn't refuse and the two former Boston-based chefs joined forces at the Sugar Mill Restaurant overlooking the Caribbean Sea....

Norway's Modern Fare Has Come A Long Way From Its Humble Beginnings

Aug 2, 2013  |   Contributor: Susan Kime  |  1 Comment

My neighbor, in her seventies, has been an inveterate traveler all her life. When I told her I was going to Norway she said, “Well, take things to eat from home. All you will get there is underdone fishy fish, covered in cream sauces.” I said I would heed her advice and take (as usual on my travels) some protein bars, pumpkin seeds and a large bottle of antacid tablets....

Each Thursday for two hours, managers, buyers, chefs and front office employees meet together in a back room to taste potential new products.
