Dinner in the Sky Makes Your Epicurean Fantasies a Reality

May 9, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Years ago, during a 2 a.m. conversation with a bartender, I laid out my fantasy wedding while we watched I Love Lucy — this is going somewhere, I promise. The plans got more and more ridiculous as time went on, finally ending up with my riding a black bear down the aisle and the wedding party dining from banquet tables suspended off the Cliffs of Moher.

The Celebrity Secret to Healthy Eating: Z.E.N. Foods Founder Talks Hollywood Diets, Cupcakes and Zac Efron

May 9, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

If you’re one of the people who has ever tried a meal delivery service, you know the entire experience can be—less than satisfactory. Everything is prepackaged, frozen, boring and makes you feel like you’re on a diet—and no one wants to feel like they’re on a diet.

May 1, 2014  |   Contributor: Lena Katz

If you’re binge watching VikingsGame of Thrones or any other lusty/bloody medieval dramas of the season, then you already know that if the royals aren’t brawling or bedding, they’re feasting. And they don’t bother with utensils either (except maybe a dagger — that wedding still hurts, GOT). Here’s a lineup of equally kingly feasts that you can order in the modern age — trencher by special request — and not to worry, there are no bloody surprises in the third act.

Award-Winning Chef & Author Normand Laprise Dishes On New Quebec Gastronomy Restaurant

Apr 27, 2014  |   Contributor: Janice Nieder

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that before I interviewed Chef Normand Laprise, I wasn't exactly sure who he was. I suppose I can be forgiven since Laprise isn’t quite a household name in America (not yet anyway), though he certainly is on the other side of the border. Not only was Laprise voted best chef in Canada, but his recent cookbook, Toqué!: Creators of a New Quebec Gastronomy, won "Best Cookbook of the Year"  for Canada at the Gourmand International World Cookbook Awards, as well as a prestigious James Beard Foundation award for excellence in the category "Cooking From a Professional Point of View."

Apr 25, 2014  |   Contributor: Janice Nieder

The award-winning Viceroy, Riviera Maya continues to rack-up endless “best of” accolades, but perhaps their most powerful secret weapon is their talented chef, Jetzabel Rojas Barragán. 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.

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.
