    Why you'll never crave a carrot. (but you could always eat a pizza).

    Why you'll never crave a carrot. (but you could always eat a pizza).

    Once upon a time, we humans ate food to sustain ourselves. You see, we are pretty amazing. We have sophisticated systems to enable us to perform our most essential task; find food for fuel. Our taste abilities have been shaped by the ecological niches our evolutionary ancestors occupied and by the nutrients they sought. They helped us to identify nutrients to survive.

    Cucumber Ice Cream

    Cucumber Ice Cream

    Scintillating chandeliers, crimson draperies, hundreds of table settings arranged for local and global elite: the Egyptian Hall of the Mansion House was a grandeur entertaining space in Victorian London. Despite its name, the hall was not Egyptian-inspired, but rather it “was built upon Lord Burlington’s plans, who gathered his ideas of such Hall from a description by Vitruvius.” The pillars of the Roman architecture stood amongst myriad banquets throughout the century, displaying food from kitchens with a fireplace so extensive it could roast a huge ox or “fifty or sixty fowls or ducks” simultaneously. At the centrepiece of this grandiose, glittery space of consumption was, of course, food.

    Vegan Cinnamon Babka

    Vegan Cinnamon Babka

    Besides it being fun to say, Babka is one of the best things ever invented. Most people think of inventions from the 1800's and their mind goes to the cotton gin, or light bulbs. And while Eli Whitney and Thomas Edison do deserve their accolades, the true unsung hero of the 1800's-- the housewives!!

    Who Said Noodles Were Boring?

    Who Said Noodles Were Boring?

    Certainly not me, as over the years I have mastered a recipe that still gets me excited thinking of it. Looking for a spicy quick fix, long before the hunger pangs give you a beating, look no further. Our goal is to make spicy noodles garnished with butter, prawns, gizzard and mixed vegetables.

    Marvel's Market

    Marvel's Market

    I don't know a lot about baking and I've never made donuts myself, but I'd say I'm a pretty good judge of a good donut. Let's be honest, it's not that hard to be. What is hard is to score higher on my personal donut meter than a Marvel's Market donut.

    Queenside Story

    The first thing I learned about Jim was that he was obsessed with games, specifically chess.

    A Little Piece of Vegan Heaven: Clementine Bakery

    A Little Piece of Vegan Heaven: Clementine Bakery

    I moved to Brooklyn just over 3 years ago, and I'm not exaggerating when I say that I go to Clementine maybe three times a week—every week. This tiny bakery near my apartment in Clinton Hill has become my neighborhood staple. I never expected to find "my neighborhood spot" so soon after moving to the area, but it truly was love at first bite (you'll have to try their wraps—or anything really, to understand what I mean!)

    The Post-COVID-19 Business World - Part 2: Restaurants

    The Post-COVID-19 Business World - Part 2: Restaurants

    NOTE: In the first article in this series (The Post-COVID-19 Business World — Part 1: Overview), we sketched out the very changed world that all of us are living through presently as we cope, both individually and as a society, to the COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic. We set the stage for examining how the business world in general will change in what will be the post-pandemic environment to come (and yes, it will!). We believe that it is critical that companies across the board, from the largest corporations to small, local businesses develop strategies to succeed in the post-pandemic environment.
