Team Salt & Wind is 100% behind The Grand Budapest Hotel. It's creative, gorgeous, and the plot revolves around a tower of cream puff pastries they coin the Courtesan au Chocolat. So, we made our own version with a Meyer Lemon cream filling.
During our trip to the Tuscan countryside, we came across one of the most interesting pastas we'd had in a long time. Made with burrata, saffron, and guanciale, it's an easy pasta that's decadent and totally amazing.
You'd think that Hollywood would be an anti-pizza world since it's non-Paleo, full of carbs, and breaks every other dieting rule, but I live at an intersection of amazing and phenomenal when it comes to pizza with hitters like Mozza and the Oaks just a stones' throw away.

Do the holidays ever seem more cheery than from under a bough of evergreen and twinkling lights? Perhaps paired with a cozy fireplace and a bubbly cocktail? We don’t think so either! That’s why we always make time to bring together friends for an annual holiday cocktail party. And these appetizers are always present!
Like the chorizo of Hawaii, Portuguese sausage is a fresh or smoked sweet-spicy sausage that's used in breakfast dishes, plate lunches, and at many tailgates. This recipe combines Portuguese sausage with other local flavors -- sweet onion and sweet bread - for a Hawaiian slant on classic Thanksgiving stuffing.
Our favorite cocktail on the island of Maui? Truth is it's got nothing to do with the Mai Tai! We first had this modern slant on the daiquiri at the Luana Bar and, until we can get back there, this is how we'll DIY it!
