Apr 25, 2014  |   Contributor: Janice Nieder

I managed to catch up with this busy young woman after she had just knocked everyone dead at the 2014 Cancun-Rivera Maya Wine & Food Festival. Interesting — and a little sad in this day and age — to note that she was the only local female chef that participated in the gourmet event.

11 Ways to Set Up a Killer Luxury Picnic, From Flower Arrangements to Movie Projectors

Mar 26, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

There's a scene in the BBC miniseries Parade's End, where a group of upper class people (including Benedict Cumberbatch, of course) have a lavish picnic in the English countryside, surrounded by picturesque rolling hills. Unlike the picnics you may remember as a child, where your parents laid out a blanket and pulled simply prepared snacks from a wicker basket, this picnic involved a full dining room table with chairs and place settings.
