Plus a Beer For the Kitchen

A year ago this week we dropped a bright blue firetruck in the middle of Austin and ordered the entire menu at Odd Duck. Which, as you’ll understand after you scroll through the food porn below, quickly jumped to number 1 on the “Must-Eat-While-in-Austin” list. So, as this...

Cosmic Cusco

Picking up where I left off last, What seemed like a simple picture I snapped of a hanging pig head and a young vendor was actually more about what happened on the other side of the lens. As the sun set on the day, Tony and I made our way to a square near the center of town to hook up with...

Curious in Cusco

They scare you to death about the altitude shift in Cusco BUT they neglect to tell you about the death defying commercial airline flight path decent. After an eventful corkscrew up over the Andes high peaks and then down into the puma shaped valley that is Cusco, Ant and I sipped our obligatory...

Forked with Matthew McGregor-Mento

Trippple M and I go back. So far back that the first thing we worked on together was an ad campaign that used digital ad space as the medium and Adobe flash as the editing platform. This is way before YouTube was even an idea let alone possible. From then until now we’ve collaborated,...

All About That Broth, no treble

This is the perfect day for this story. There’s nothing like a hot broth to warm up your insides and kickstart your depressed winter soul as that mercury barely edges past 20 degrees. I am also about to get crazy over my love for Panera Bread. Last time I did something like this it was a KFC...

Lima Lamenting

  Why sorrow you say? Two reasons. First, not getting to this story sooner. Second, not being their right now. The food in Lima, as many have recently screamed from the middle of their 3 star michelin kitchens, blew my mind because of the immediate and aggressive foreign assault on my senses....

Forked with Raul Cachay

  Raul and I had known each other for about 5 minutes before it was clear we both shared an overwhelming love for food adventures. When he is not eating or taking random visitors around Lima to his favorite haunts, (as he did me and Tony) he’s busy being the editor of the popular...

Christmas Meat Pie

  This Christmas is our first in 12 years that we’ll be in New York. Christmas “observed” was a success but nothing beats the real thing. We’ll miss the controlled, gastro, chaos of my Uncle Doug’s kitchen and all the characters that go along with it but I am...

Dawn at Russell Market

This is really two stories in one. The tale in words is first and is maybe one of my favorite moments ever experienced abroad. The second story is more visual and is a pictorial journey through the market that was the setting for my first story. I woke up very early one of the days before the...

A 94 year celebration

  Last Saturday grandma turned 94. In celebration of all those years we gathered in Port St. Lucie and celebrated both her birthday and a sort of Christmas “Observed”. This year we’ll be staying in New York so we had to double up on the seven fishes and Christmas day roast....

Forked with Ashley Batz

Food, photos and Italian-ness. That’s how my first conversation with Ashley Batz went so, needless to say, I was instantly intrigued. As it turns out we’d talk a lot more in the next few weeks as we prepared to finish this project with her incredible photos. After I picked her up from...

King of Cookies

  It’s time this post saw the light of day. I’ve been avoiding the publish button until I lost the 15lbs that inevitably comes with Christmas. Damn you Santa. And, now yes that has taken me an entire year. The cookie table certainly doesn’t help. Instead of the recap we...

Not really bells at all BUT today marks the anniversary of the reason for last year’s epic India adventure. Having never officially told the story of the only Indian wedding I have attended that was actually in India, I’m taking this anniversary to share some of the awesome. Straight off...

Simple India…uhh, sorta

It’s the simple things that stick with me. The perfectly, unfussed, real, things that stick with me the most. It could be many things but meals are those that I remember most. Usually because they link to a bigger memory of an experience I had or a person I met. This is the story of Rafik, our...
