Crêpes
The wonderful wafer-thin French pancakes called crepes fill a niche in contemporary dining. Made with light sauces and fillings, they suit today's passion for healthy fare.
A Feast of Flowers - An Epicure's Guide to Edible Flowers
Flowers have held an eminent place in our art, religions, pharmacopoeia, and kitchens since ancient times. Tangled pea vines and primitive roses are depicted on Bronze Age artifacts. Mustard flowers were included in Roman love potions for their aphrodisiac powers.
The Food of Southern Italy
I would hesitate to call southern Italian food "down home" because it has been around for so long and has become so refined (not in the panty-waist sense, but in the fact that it has been done and re-done so often as to make it almost a travesty to try to change anything about it), that it can easily qualify as elegant food. However, it still satisfies the soul.
Asparagus - The Supreme Vegetable
There is nothing quite like a fresh bunch of plump, straight stalks with flower buds tightly closed, right out of the garden and into boiling water. Cooked al dente, seasoned with salt and fresh cracked black pepper, and coated lightly with melted butter, it's no wonder that asparagus has enjoyed such a long and noble history.
Wine, cocktails, tea, coffee
Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony
Ethiopia's coffee ceremony is an integral part of their social and cultural life. An invitation to attend a coffee ceremony is considered a mark of friendship or respect and is an excellent example of Ethiopian hospitality.
Vodka Infusions
Infused liquors are the new medium for creative expression in the realm of cocktail mixology, and vodka is the ideal spirit for experimentation, as any number of ingredients easily infuse into this neutral-tasting liquor and shine through with clarity.

Food & Wine Interactions
The next time someone asks you what wine goes best with grilled salmon, take it with a grain of salt. Or a wedge of lemon. Or a little sorrel sauce. And drink the wine you love best.

Saké - The Other White Wine
One out of every five glasses of wine consumed in the world is saké. Since we seem behind the rest of the world in our consumption and knowledge, we need to explore what we have been missing.
