It was a date which will live in infamy. I woke up early overlooking Monaco’s crystal blue Mediterranean sea, hopped on a bus winding through the hills of the Côte d’Azur, stopped off in Italy for an espresso, then wandered across the border by foot into the south of France to munch on a croissant and roam around […]
I only really had to know two things before eating at highly acclaimed Dinner by Heston Blumenthal: Meat Fruit and Tipsy Cake.
It’s hard to believe that after living in Buenos Aires for over 7 years, I never made it to the Feria de Mataderos. I guess I always passed it off as a pointless touristic activity, crawling with La Boca Caminito types; big boned tourists who are suited up to go trekking in foothills of San […]
Quests for bloody Marys, a gastro-trip to the Ukraine, new closed-door restaurants, sandwiches and brunches galore, here are some food highlights (and low lights) of August eats.

Here is my recap of my best food finds in Israel.

With over 45 pairs of asadores (those who MAN the grill) and 13,713 kilos of meat, Argentina proudly took over Uruguay’s title set in 2008. The […]
“What do you miss about the USA?” is on the top 5 list of questions that many expats are asked when being quizzed about their reasons for living abroad. As a shallow, culinary obsessed, mid-twenty something, my answer will always remain something superficial. These days with the glories of social media and the wonders of […]
