Been There, Do This: Eat Seafood Pasta in Positano, Italy

When vacationing in Italy, particularly when by the sea, you are essentially obligated to order the classic dish of spaghetti ai frutti di mare at least once. The above photograph depicts one of the three spaghetti ai frutti de mare dishes I consumed, specifically while in the coastal Italian village of Positano.

A Breakfast to Remember at Hotel Cielo Rojo

A Breakfast to Remember at Hotel Cielo Rojo

Tucked away in a quiet street in San Pancho is Hotel Cielo Rojo and its restaurant, Bistro Organico. I visited during Mexico’s off-season, so only a handful of locals and expats were out and about on that warm June morning.

Making Marzipan Mice in Lubeck, Germany

I was on a small-group tour of Northern Germany, and Lubeck was our second stop. When I looked at the itinerary and saw that we would be visiting the headquarters of the world’s preeminent marzipan production company, I knew that we were in for a treat.

Slice of Heaven in Huatulco

On a recent trip to Huatulco, Mexico, with my family, we found ourselves craving a taste of home. One evening, we ventured into the nearby town of La Crucecita where we heard there was some truly outstanding pizza — maybe some of the best anywhere in Mexico. We asked a few locals in town and each one knew exactly what restaurant we were talking about.

Tahini-Filled Falafel Exists

Tahini-Filled Falafel Exists

Whether I am at home or abroad, I love meandering through local food markets to see what the local hands and soil can come up with, and how the local chefs think.
