if bourdain came back to boston, i’d take him to island creek oyster bar

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

I bet you thought I wouldn’t follow through with my promise to continue my imaginary journey with the great Anthony Bourdain, should he ever decide to come back to Boston. Well, I know I took a while, but away we go. After a jaunt to the burbs, I’d get back into the city and head […]

girls weekend in new york, suburb edition

Monday, February 13th, 2012

When we arrived at Caitlin’s new house in New York – after some brainstorming on how we’d spend our time – we eventually came to the conclusion that we would, as always, build the weekend around food. On Friday night Caitlin fed us incredible shrimp burgers that she made using a New Orleans recipe book […]

in halifax, it’s all about the hops

Sunday, December 18th, 2011

I don’t visit a new city without tasting its beers. Beyond experiencing the local flavors, beer can teach you a lot about a place. During our road trip through Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, we had a hard time finding a full-bodied ale until we got to Halifax. Mike and I resorted to ordering […]

if bourdain came back to boston, i’d take him to casey’s diner

josh and jedd’s fish and chips in halifax

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Our trip to Nova Scotia was never short of seafood. I tend to be a shellfish person – I almost always order mussels when they are on the menu and one of the best times of year is when my dad heads to the Cape to pick his very own oysters from the cold waters […]

cardigan lobster supper

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

While we couldn’t eat authentic Prince Edward Island lobsters because the season had just passed, it didn’t feel right leaving PEI without a proper lobster supper. Following a tip from a local, we found ourselves spending our last night in on this beautiful island in Cardigan –  Cardigan Lobster Supper to be exact. The lobster […]

Digestive biscuits spread with a thin layer of checkered chocolate bring me back to my little Ireland apartment. It’s right after dinner, hot tea is prepared even if it’s hot out, and I’m unwinding from the day. What foods take you somewhere?
