I have written about a different "Les Saint-Georges" wine from a different wine-maker (Domaine Robert Chevillon) and a different vintage (2001) in the past. This one comes from Domaine Chevillon-Chezeaux. If you're wondering if there is a shared lineage between the two wine-makers, then you're right.
A handful of street food vendors dot the streets of Chiang Mai during the day, but once the sun goes down and the night markets are set up, the street food really comes alive. Most of these dishes won’t be on the menu at your local pad Thai take-out spot back home.
Despite being the largest city in Northern Thailand, Chiang feels manageable and laid back, in part due to far less traffic and a smaller city center than its southern counterpart, Bangkok. Here is the practical information we observed in our time there.
On the surface Bangkok is still a place for Thai iced teas and sweetened coffee drinks, but the specialty coffee scene here is growing rapidly. Unlike New York or London, Bangkok has an advantage neither of those cities have — Thailand is also an origin country.
Meet Aldur Soosalu, a sous chef at Restoran Ö, in Tallinn, Estonia.
While we primarily ate on the streets, Bangkok is also a cosmopolitan world city — you can eat Thai food at fancy places, spend the evening at a wine bar, or have a nightcap at one of the many cocktail bars.
Bangkok has a street food life that doesn’t sleep. You can find vendors pretty much everywhere and at all hours selling savory foods, sweet foods, drinks and fruits. There are also many shophouses and trendy restaurants serving up Thai food. Opinions are to be had about whether street food or shophouses are better, but either way you won’t go hungry.
On our second visit to Thailand we spent time in Bangkok, the country’s most populous city. Our first visit to Thailand was earlier this year to Koh Lanta, a small laid back island in the south, a far cry from the busy metropolis that is the country’s capital. Over our 6 nights in Bangkok, here’s the practical information we observed.
Singapore is no stranger to specialty coffee. It has become increasingly easy to find a good cuppa. The city has also taken a liking to cocktails, and while the New York influence is inescapable, many of these "speakeasies" and cocktail bars bring their own originality, both to the cocktails and the space.
How can we talk about Singapore and not talk about hawker centers? Well, that’s kinda the point of this post. We love Singapore for the mix of fantastic hawker center fare and international cuisine from around the world. This time we want to highlight just the latter, from our most recent visits.
Galettes seem to be all the rage lately, whether savory or sweet, so we decided to jump on the bandwagon. I think by now it’s clear that we like to cook Mexican inspired dishes, so it should be no surprise that this is where our galette ended up.
Cooking and eating breakfast at home every morning allows us to enter our day feeling a wee bit more relaxed and ensures quality time together doing something we love. Here are our favorite at home breakfasts.
This dish is a twist on mac n’ cheese, but made with quinoa, which lends an even creamier texture. We added tomatoes and basil to round out this quick and tasty recipe.
For highly original, creative food in a relaxed atmosphere, Contra in the Lower East Side is one of our favorite restaurants to go to. Our meal this visit was wonderful, and we also managed to chat with Diego, one of the sous chefs in the kitchen today.
There’s a little park in our neighborhood, where we end up eating most of our picnics, that’s tucked away between beautiful brownstones on treelined streets.
We love making tacos because, other than the obvious delicious factor, they’re so versatile. Below is a rough recipe of what we’ve come up with for our ideal breakfast taco.
