Hummus was one of the first dishes I learned how to make early on in my catering career. I thought it was pretty darn great, until I hired an Israeli chef, and found out that I had a lot to learn.

Later, I went to Israel and found entire restaurants dedicated to...

It’s not surprising to learn that the latest studies say veganism is on the rise. More and more people are becoming educated about the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle, such as better long-term health, a reduced environmental footprint, or not contributing to animal cruelty.

Especially for individuals in high school, college, or their early adult life,...
Say hello to Florence Bearse, who just celebrated her 100th birthday earlier this month in Bangor, Maine. The upbeat centenarian, interviewed by her local television news station WLBZ at the Westgate Center for Rehabilitation, revealed that wine has helped her live a long, happy life. “Oh, I like my wine. Don't take it away from me,” she said, while wearing a pink-and-white Hawaiian lei and a beaded "Birthday Princess" necklace. Bearse, a former restaurant owner and recreational ballroom dancer from Massachusetts, fell in love with Maine’s scenery and...
With rising temps and longer days comes the urge to whip up tasty cold drinks. This summer, say goodbye to plain Jane lemonade with agua de panela, as it’s known in Colombia: a simpler lemon or lime water sweetened with panela, the “original” brown sugar. Its delicate caramel flavors compliment the zingy blend of citrus juices for a beverage that’s more substantial, and a little less sweet, than standard lemonade. Plus, it’s a fantastic pick-me-up on a hot afternoon. Add this simple syrup to water,...

Crunchy, cool, salty and light, poke (pronounced POH-keh), a raw fish salad that originates from Hawaii, makes for the perfect summer meal. The fish (our recipe calls for tuna but you can easily substitute salmon or firm tofu) is typically marinated in sesame oil and soy sauce with green onions; topped with a variety of add-ons like avocado, sesame seeds, or mango; and can be served over rice. Throw a poke party and let everyone experiment with different toppings and sauce combinations — everything can...
