Canada's Secret Sauce: Prince Edward County Wine Country

Picturesque scenery, local cuisine, and endless rows of vineyards: no, I'm not talking of Bordeaux or Napa but the Prince Edward County wine scene. A short hour drive from Toronto, this wine region (aka The County) lined along Lake Ontario has become a go-to weekend getaway in my neck of the woods.

Orange Espresso Granita

It’s known as “dome sickness” in our family. You won’t find a definition in any other dictionary because it's my Mom's term and she'd define it as an intense longing for the duomo of Florence and for Italy in general. To cure my latest bout of dome sickness, I’ve been scraping together (literally) this coffee granita. It’s a classic Southern Italian recipe with the addition of orange juice, cocoa, and some liqueur for something that’s more than meets the eye. And, let’s be honest, it’s a pretty great way to breath new life into leftover coffee.

Zucchini Rajas Salmon Tacos

This weekend Zucchini Rajas Salmon Tacos is where it's at. This a perfect recipe in that they're super easy to make but elegant enough to be from a restaurant. Which is likely because these Zucchini Rajas Salmon Tacos are highly inspired by the Sopa de Crema dish at Taco Maria restaurant. The recipe reflects the restaurant because Taco Maria is pretty unassuming when you first walk in but a few bites and it'll knock your calcetines off (see what I did there?).

24 Hour Itinerary: Rhinebeck, New York With Jon Makhmaltchi

Some of our favorite hotels — Cavallo PointL'Albereta, and the Viceroy Bali — all have one thing in common: Jon Makhmaltchi. He makes brand management magic for luxury properties around the world. Though he travels constantly, he's always happiest at return home in the Hudson Valley and we can understand why after seeing how he'd spend 24 Hours in Rhinebeck

Tomatillo Bloody Mary Cocktails

I’ve been obsessed with all things verde lately, ever since returning from my trip to Baja California, be it salsa verde or Aguachile Verde. So, naturally, when I created a twist on a Bloody Mary for my fellow Californians at Hangar 1 Vodka, I went verde and made this Tomatillo Bloody Mary Cocktail.

Where To Travel Now: May 2015

If there's a month when it's a good time to visit pretty much anywhere, it's May. The desert isn't too hot, Europe has started to thaw, and Japan still has some of its cherry blossoms, which explains why this month's contributors have got their bags packed and tickets booked.

{Mandilli di Seta} Handkerchief Pasta with Creamy Pesto

This is one of those recipes that separates the donne from the ragazze. We can all debate the best way to make and serve pesto but my favorite is this: Mandilli di Seta, aka Handkerchief Pasta with Creamy Pesto. If you know me, then you know I take great pride in this recipe. It took me years to crack the code on how to make such a creamy pesto without any cream. So, when I say I'm sharing one of my all-time best recipes, know that's because I believe we all should be kickbutt donne in the kitchen. You with me?

{Coca Mallorquina} Mallorcan Flatbread with Spring Vegetables

Have you been to Southern Spain? If so, you've likely heard of Coca. No, it's not a soft drink but a savory flatbread hailing from Mallorca. We're recent transplants from New York (we moved here to start a private chef business) and it's pretty much our favorite part of Mallorca (aside from the beaches, the people, and the history). At its best, a Coca is a crisp olive oil-dough topped with seasonal vegetables.
