A Celebration of American Regional Cuisine at Craft, NYC

A Celebration of American Regional Cuisine at Craft, NYC

It’s cool how attention comes in waves. The last couple of years I’ve been participating in many local culinary events, but not much on the national scale.

 My Paris Trip: A Meal-by-Meal Recap

My Paris Trip: A Meal-by-Meal Recap

I just returned from a week in Paris with my good friend Brian Hill. We worked and lived together a long time ago when we were both coming up, and have a similar sense of food and humor which makes him a great traveling companion. He had never been to Paris, so the restaurant reservations were left up to me. Here's a meal-by-meal recap of our flavor-filled journey.
