I've always loved food. Some of my earliest memories are going to farmer's markets with my grandma, discovering delicious samosas in tiny cafes hidden from view, driving to another province because she had a craving, and watching her bribe our favorite Chinese restaurant to teach her their egg roll and won ton soup recipes. Instead of flowers, my grandpa would buy us fancy cheeses and cured meats (the beginning of my obsession with charcuterie). We would spend summers and falls picking, preparing, and canning our own veggies, chutneys, and jams. Because of this, I have created a monster in the form of my wonderful 11-year-old daughter, who has spent her short life eating the best and most unique food we could find in our small city. We would watch food documentaries and every YouTube video that involves eating, cooking, and tasting, wishing that we could try even one of those restaurants. But now, with a recent move to Los Angeles (foodie paradise), we are able to live out our dream of eating like a YouTuber.
I am a true binge-head. When I find a show, I get sucked into the world that the writers have created and cannot pull myself out until the series is over or until I run out of episodes. This makes starting a brand new show difficult because they end too quickly for my taste and because of that I have made a rule for myself that I do not watch a program unless there are at least two seasons available. Its a tough rule but it works for me most of the time. However, at times I break my rule and with the new Netflix series The Letdown, I am so glad that I did.
Here is a list of some film and television stars that may surprise you that they have starred on the Great White Way.
There is nothing better than a business with inventive, cutting-edge products that also gives back. That is the real charm of San Diego's FruitCraft Fermentery and Distillery. Originally known as California Fruit Wine, FruitCraft was opened in 2009 by two brothers who were inspired by the growing craft beer community.
