I love good deals. At almost 29, I find myself in the same predicament as friends when it comes to money — we have to make an effort to make it stretch. Doesn’t matter how much we earn or try to save, we have to pay Miami rent prices after all. Among my money-saving strategies, […]
Did you know that when eating sushi you should never pass food to another person from your chopsticks to theirs? Apparently this mimicks part of a Japanese funeral ritual and is therefore considered extremely offensive. I learned this through a video on How to Eat Sushi that I found on a website a friend emailed […]
Malai is what they call clotted milk or Devonshire cream in India. In Spanish, we call it nata. This recipe, however, is in the words of its author a little “perverse” because it uses non-fat yogurt instead of malai.

Miami to visitors is well-known for South Beach, Miami Vice, celebrity sightings, shopping and clubs, but for its food markets? No. Not really. But that’s what made Food Destinations 2 so appealing: it gave me a chance to highlight a part of Miami where I usually wouldn’t take any of my visitors.

Basically, the fact that I could look like the cooking queen with such little effort made me want to make it over […]
Simple egg dish for when cereal and milk start to get old.
I came across another dining event for us Miamians: Restaurants for Relief 2. This one’s actually a nationwide event, but several Miami restaurants are involved. Here’s how it works: Dine out on Tuesday, August 29 at participating restaurants and part of the proceeds go to help victims of Hurrican Katrina. The list specifies what each […]
Good eats: A weekend in Chicago.
Last night a friend surprised me with an advance copy of How I Learned to Cook: Culinary Educations from the World’s Greatest Chefs (release date October 17). Good timing considering I’ll have time to read on my flight tonight. I’m flying to Chicago for the weekend to visit college friends and also stopping by Milwaukee […]
We can’t be gourmands every day. When strapped for time, Goya frozen plantains are a good substitute.
