A food blogger and a firefighter walk into a bar…

OK, not really. Remember Lt. Dan?  The guy who made the barbecue that Terry loved so much? He’s a great guy– he and his wife, Sheilah, are some of my favorite people.  Strangely enough, we met before we actually met– I distinctly remember talking to […]

Downtown Restaurant Week

A reminder from Michelle, who also wrote about this today. Downtown Restaurant Week is August 10-16. I will, naturally, be out of town the entire time. Sigh. But my loss is your gain– many downtown restaurants will be doing a prix fixe dinner for $35; […]

Just Cured: Closed

Just Cured: Closed

I’m sad to report that Just Cured is closing its operations.  Just Cured produced some of the best smoked salmon I’ve ever had– all locally produced and very high quality.  He partnered, at one point, with the Jean Robert group (pre-transition) and sold his products […]

Food Blog Ethics

Food Blog Ethics

Don’t worry, for once, this isn’t a rant. Just found a great site for food bloggers, with an ethical code of conduct. This is fantastic! Here’s the general food blog code (to be honest, it’s very “What I learned in Kindergarten,” but many people need […]
