(Top Chef) Casey Thompson’s Aveline

Aveline San Francisco

I am a big fan of Top Chef.  I am always curious to see how the cheftestants manage their post Top Chef lives. Just by observation it is very easy to quickly identify the chefs that love the spotlight and those who would rather have their food speak for them.  I am not saying one […]

J’adore – Mary’s Secret Ingredients

Godiva Summer of Love (and Chocolate!)

Godiva Signature Truffles

I have been selected as a GODIVA Ambassador and this is a post written by me on behalf of GODIVA. My Chocolate Story I grew up in a household full of sweet tooths. My mother was quite fond of chocolate, so I’d guess you’d say that my appreciation for all the decadence derived from the […]

Interview with Burgerator Founder Ammar Shallal

Ammar Shallal

I love me some burgers. I just don’t let myself eat them as often as I really (really) want to.  From time to time, I let myself go a little crazy, like when I was researching for the best burgers in San Francisco article for the Groupon San Francisco City blog, but generally speaking I […]
