Shock and Foie

Shock and Foie

Check out this fantastic manifesto on sustainability and organ meat and how a diet– that includes foie gras, seriously– fulfills the pattern of creation and destruction inherent in how the Earth works.  It’s written by the chef of Incanto in SF, Chris Cosentino.  Incredibly well-thought […]

Wow. It’s been busy around here, hasn’t it? Bockfest! We met up with Lt. Dan of barbecue fame and his wife Sheilah and watched the parade (I think I shall run for Sausage Queen next year, what do you think?) and drank Bock beer before […]

In case you were wondering what I’ll be up to this weekend…

Some minor wmdm updates

First, I got a very nice email from the artist, Kelly Kruthaupt, who was filming at Tucker’s when I was there: I’m the photgrapher that you mention in the Tucker’s review. My work will be part of The Art of Food show at the Carnegie […]

Barbecue…with a side of humble pie

Barbecue…with a side of humble pie

(Guest post by The Boyfriend) On his old Emeril Live show on Food Network, Emeril Lagasse quipped regularly that he wished that someone had invented “smellavision”.  As the audience ooooh-ed and aaaaah-ed over whatever he was cooking, he would lament that video images couldn’t capture […]

Review: Tucker’s

Review: Tucker’s

Pigall’s Last Day

Pigall’s Last Day

I walked through the kitchen of Pigall’s for both the first and last time today. I’ve eaten there before– when it first opened– and had eaten at the Maisonette when I was in high school. I was unable, due to a breakneck schedule, to work […]

An Open Letter to Bar Louie.

An Open Letter to Bar Louie.

Dear Bar Louie: Thank you for being open and serving food past 11 PM. It amazes me, that, in Newport, Kentucky, there is no place to get both drinks and food after 11 PM. Considering there is a movie theater, a comedy club, and a […]
