It's been ages since I made a cocktail on the blog . . . WTF is going on?!! It's not like I've been taking a break from drinking - far from it! In fact, I was recently on a Berkeley bar crawl, and had to pleasure of sipping one of the tastiest, most refreshing libations I've enjoyed in some time: the Yerba Buena, created by the talented Daniel Sheel of Tupper & Reed. more →

Most of the time I eat salad to be healthy/enjoy seasonal vegetables. Sometimes, I eat salad purely as a vehicle for amazing dressing. And that's okay, because there are some dressings that are worth the extra effort to make from scratch. The perfect example of this is ranch. The difference between homemade ranch and bottled ranch is like day and night. If you aren't a fan of ranch it's most likely because you haven't had good ranch. more →
22. That's how many hand foraged botanicals go into The Botanist's dry gin. 9 classic gin aromatics, like orris root, coriander seed and cassia bark, are delicately augmented by 22 botanicals, hand picked from the shores of the Scottish island of Islay. The elements are then distilled in one of the world’s last surviving Lomond spirit still, in an achingly slow, 17 hour distillation. more →

Bourdain remarked how one huge difference he's noticed between living in Italy and living in New York is that in Italy people are happy to see kids out at restaurants. more →
What I particularly love about these recipes is that they're simple enough to make on a casual weeknight with friends, but also festive enough to justify serving at your NYE bash. It's amazing what a little extra sparkle will do for a party! Once again, thank you for another fabulous year. Here's to many, many more. Cheers!! more →
It's hard for me to get out these days. It's not that I don't have the opportunity. After Fiona goes down around 7:30pm, I'm a free man. You see, the nights have always been relatively smooth. It's the mornings that really take it out of me. Two or three consecutive 5:30am wakeup calls, and an evening out is the last thing on my mind. I'd rather bring the bar to me! That's why I've been stocking up on my cocktail book collection. The latest addition: Death & Co. One of my alltime favorite bars, Death & Company has been a constant source of inspiration throughout my career. more →
While I've never put a pear in my purse, nor my wife's purse for that matter, I have played an entire foosball game with a satsuma mandarin. Hold your questions, you'll just have to try it for yourself. more →
