Tips for Grilling Fresh Fish
Date August 1, 2016
Grilling fish is not easy. Unlike beef or chicken, fish is delicate, and can easily get destroyed if not handled and cooked properly. Here are a few tips on picking, and grilling fresh fish this summer.

Henckels Knife Giveaway
Date July 24, 2016
When I graduated from culinary school, I went knife shopping. I had saved up $150.00 (from my $6.75 per hour first cooking job), and was ready to buy a high-quality chef’s knife. I can remember strolling into Williams Sonoma, and drooling at all of the shiny knives through the glass panel. The salesperson happily opened the locked door, and I began my search. After handling a dozen knives, I decided on a Henckels 8-inch chef’s knife because I liked the balance, and it felt right in my hand. I used that knife for 8 years (before I bought another one). It survived many drops, mishaps, and thousands of passes over a sharpening stone.

Bravo Franco, Pittsburgh, PA
Date January 29, 2016
The show started out well, but quickly became a bit overwhelming and repetitive- a sensory overload to say the least. When the lights came on, and the intermission bell chimed, we decided to skip the second act (along with many other folks) and have an early dinner. We chose Bravo Franco, located at 613 Penn Avenue, because of its close proximity to the theater.

Narcisi Winery, Gibsonia, PA
Date November 24, 2015
Last weekend my sister was celebrating her birthday, and wanted to meet at Narcisi Winery in Gibsonia, PA. I had never heard of the winery, but was eager to have a meal with my family, and enjoy some Italian food and wine. A bit of a preface- Pennsylvania wines are usually less than exceptional because of the lack of sun, wet climate, and baron soil. What results, are wines that are lacking body, and depth. Most east coast wines are also unbearably sweet.
