Amy Ruth's is one of the last places I enjoyed a meal with my Nana. It was my college graduation and I took my family to try the incredible chicken and waffles. I'll treasure those celebratory days I had with my family. They loved the food – even my mostly vegetarian mom couldn't help trying some of the fried fish. We had a wonderful time. My Nana died a few weeks later.
Today, American's across the country find comfort in a delicious bowl of steaming hot phở. But that wasn't always the case. When Helene An and her family fled Vietnam in 1975, after the end of a decades long, brutal war that ended with the Communist rise to power, they found themselves starting over in an unfamilar home. San Francisco in the 70s was everything you could imagine it to be, vibrant, rebellious and free spirited. Chinatown had long before made it's mark as a defining feature of the cities cultural landscape. But it's Vietnamese heritage was only just beginning to take root. As part of the first wave of Vietnamese immigrants to arrive on American shores, Helene and her family would help meld Vietnamese heritage into the fabric of American society.
Nobody said that running a food business is easy. The reality is you have to be on top of your toes all the time to make sure that everything around you is working according to your expectations. If you would like to exceed your sales targets each month, you must make it a point to serve excellent food. However, this would be impossible without the help of your suppliers or food vendors.

It's not often you get the chance to actually eat at the places you see on shows like Chef's Table and Street Food. Whether that's because of distance or cost these places often feel unattainable. I recently came back from a two week vacation in Japan. I spent a good amount of my time in Osaka and since - in essence - street food is meant to be inexpensive, I went off on a journey to eat all the food I saw in Street Food: Osaka.
I've lived in and around the Scarborough area of Toronto, Ontario for my entire life. I don't want to sound like a big deal but I'm pretty sure I walked on the same sidewalk as The Weeknd did when he was a wee youth... So we've got that connection together.

We've all been there. Late going to lunch, or perhaps you spaced out and left your food on the counter before going to work. Possibly you were running late and didn't have time to grab something as you rushed out the door. While running your errands you start to feel famished and need something fast. But you have a couple of problems; you are on a diet - a keto diet. And most keto items are pricey.

Not to mention, where the heck can you find a healthy, fast food joint that isn't going to cost you over five to ten dollars for a simple meal?
In amongst the bombardment of emails for luxury spa days at random, historic houses-come-4*hotels throughout the UK, lies few outstanding gems. It is, then, unfortunate that these few gems have become diluted, sanitised and, in some cases, found to be dwindling, as large investment companies seek to find a corporate reworking of these beautiful palaces.

And so, this aesthetic, very much goes before them in their marketing campaigns, boasting lush gardens and pretty plates of food...most of which are just replated versions of very familiar fare.
