If you’re looking for holiday gift ideas, I always love giving cookbooks. Pick out your favorite recipe from the book (flag the page with a post it note) and pick up the ingredients the recipient will need to make the recipe. It makes a super cute gift basket! I already owned the Michael Schlow, “It’s […]

We were recently in the city for a wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel. The luxury hotel just underwent a 15  million dollar renovation and it couldn’t be more beautiful. The iconic hotel is steps away from the Public Garden and the floral displays in the lobby are always a sight to see. The public […]

If I could only eat one dish for the rest of my life, it would be pasta with Parmesan cheese. I was pumped when I was invited to the “From Wedge to Rind” event at Eataly with the Consorzio. The event was mainly cheesemongers and cheese writers. Me, I’m just a cheese lover. We were […]

I had family in town this weekend so we tried to pick out some touristy type things to do in the Back Bay. No trip to Boston should be without a stop at the Boston Public Garden. The flowers are a sight to see (I especially love to see the allium) and bring some bread […]

This summer Lady M Cake Boutique opened up on Newbury Street. This is the first Boston location for the brand, which has other outposts in New York, Los Angeles, Charlotte, Singapore and Hong Kong. The minimalist storefront has full cakes on display and you can order slices or full cakes from the window in the […]

The Friendly Toast moved into the Back Bay into the former Zocalo space. You have to walk down Stanhope Street and resist popping into Flour Bakery or Red Lantern before reaching the restaurant. The space has a similar look and feel to the Cambridge location with its kitschy decor, but the space is much smaller. […]

Three of us headed over to Luke’s Lobster for lunch before our little field trip to Eataly. We showed up right before the lunch rush and boy did it fill up fast. I had first been introduced to Luke’s Lobster when I was in New York. (See another post here.) They have two locations in […]

Chef Johnny Sheehan was named the new Executive Chef of Liquid Art House back in September. We first met Sheehan when he was working over at Tavern on the Wharf. He put out some amazing dishes and his plating skills were off the chart. We would have gone back to Plymouth to see him there […]

I was fortunate to be invited to the media preview of Eataly that will be opening tomorrow, November 29th! I wasn’t sure what to expect, I have been to the Eataly in the flatiron district in New York, but there has been a lot of skepticism going around about this location. I was pleasantly surprised […]

I never really liked school – but dumpling school is something I can definitely wrap my head around. A few weeks ago I was invited to Dumpling Palace for a hands on dumpling making tutorial. The intimate event had us forming dumplings with the chef and eating what we made! Top left is Leah Palone, Marketing Director […]
