Hello Stew, Meet Curry & Saffron

I tend to eat a lot of warm foods in the winter time. Winter just seems to loan itself well to soups, stews, and ragouts. The following is a modified version of one of my favorite recipes. It combines lots of veggies with two of my favorite spices: saffron and curry! I made this while […]

Family, Friends and Cafe Berlin

This is a guest post from personal chef and culinary instructor Kathryn Furman Good morning and Merry Christmas Eve! I love this time of year. The lights, the music and especially the food!
