The Lobster Pot – Provincetown, MA

September 17th, 2012 · 1 Comment

After the relatively long drive out to Provincetown, and a brief stop at the Cape Cod National Seashore Visitor’s Center, we decided to head into town for a bite to eat. Yes, we had researched it, yes we read the mixed comments on all the review websites, but still, we wanted to try it. As […]

PB Boulangerie Bistro – Wellfleet, MA

September 17th, 2012 · No Comments

Stopped by here today on the way to Provincetown. Definitely worth a trip; so far in New England we’ve visited lots of bakeries, but nothing that is really a boulangerie. This place is most definitely a boulangerie. For the uninitiated: Flour, in Boston, is a bakery. Great, delicious, soft, sweet, cake-y goods. Thomas Haas, in […]

DØP Sausage Cart – Copenhagen, Denmark

October 5th, 2010 · 1 Comment

I have no idea where we read about this place. Talk about a random – but very good find. DØP is an acronym for ‘Den Økologiske Pølsemand’ – i.e. ‘the organic sausage man’ – and while every city has its street food, and Denmark’s seems to be dyed-red hotdogs, you’ll be getting a special treat […]

Emmerys – Copenhagen, Denmark

October 3rd, 2010 · No Comments

Always searching out delicious baked goods, we read about Emmerys somewhere or other and as it was literally around the corner from our apartment in Copenhagen, we decided to give it a try – and yes, it totally worked out. Emmerys is a beautiful food store, with multiple locations in Copenhagen, but with a very […]

Reinh van Hauen Bakery – Copenhagen, Denmark

October 2nd, 2010 · No Comments

This bakery was mentioned in a couple of articles that we found – apparently it is a favourite of Claus Meyer, chef of Noma, according to an article in the latest edition of the Monocle. We thought we’d try it out – we went to the sandwich shop at the department store Magasin and we […]

Relae (Relæ) Restaurant – Copenhagen, Denmark

September 30th, 2010 · No Comments

This is a new restaurant, and it’s fabulous. Just opened in August of 2010 (I’m writing this in September), Relae is staffed by some ex-members of the kitchen of Noma, the restaurant in Copenhagen that was recently voted the #1 restaurant in the world, and is taking the media by storm. More than one good […]

Cooking class with Chef Andrea Consoli – Rome, Italy

September 28th, 2010 · 3 Comments

D wanted to line us up for a couple of cooking classes and both worked out ridiculously well. This cooking class was the less expensive of the two, and was an absolute steal. Really, chef Andrea could be charging twice as much and it would still be worth every penny. This is a cooking class […]

Da Tonino al Governo Vecchio – Rome, Italy

September 27th, 2010 · No Comments

There are so many little restaurants in rome, that it’s almost impossible to know which ones are good, and which ones are bad. To my North American eyes, many have similar decor, similar menus – there is no way that just by looking that I can tell what makes a good restaurant. Even the best […]

Best Gelato in Rome – Rome, Italy

September 26th, 2010 · No Comments

What is the best gelato in Rome? Well, if you check a lot of the message boards/forums, apparently San Crispino is the best gelato in Rome although actually I think it depends on what kind of gelato you like and where you are staying. We tried several – Blue Ice (a very average chain with […]

Ditirambo – Rome, Italy

September 21st, 2010 · No Comments

First night in Rome – too lazy/tired to make a reservation. We pull out the lonely planet and look for a place that’s a) open on a Sunday night and b) near Cambo de’ Fiori, close to where we’re staying. Ditirambo fits the bill – we cross our fingers and hope that it will be […]
