cheese and wine – ohio style

If you are interested in learning more – and sampling – the best of what Ohio has to offer in terms of my favorite pairing, wine and cheese, I can’t think of a better person to do it than Brandon Chrostowski at L’Albatros. On Monday, April 23, he will host another amazing wine and cheese […]

happy with cheese, wine and bread

Ok, so I’m happiest with Jamie, Natalie and Olivia, but these three are a pretty close second. This combo has been my meal many a nights – intentionally. There’s nothing like sitting on our patio, opening a bottle of wine, and enjoying a nice cheese selection with crusty, warm bread over a great conversation. Or […]

ladies who lunch

I’ve always wondered about ladies who lunch. I have often joked that that’s who I’d like to come back as. Well, the past few months (thanks to maternity leave) that’s just what has become of me. Although something tells me the two aren’t exactly the same. My afternoon partners in crime have been my two […]

It’s back – the second annual Tour de Bruell. Like last year, Zack will be giving away some fun prizes, including a first to finish reward. Here’s the scoop: Zack Bruell announces the official start of the 2011 Tour de Bruell.  To take part in the Tour, diners should simply visit any Zack Bruell restaurant […]

the accidental tour de bruell

Within the past month and a half, we have been to 3 out of Zack Bruell’s 4 restaurants. If I wasn’t so full from dining out, I’d add in Table 45 and complete his actual tour. Here’s a recap of our recent Bruell eats: On Saturday, I got together with my oldest and dearest friends […]

q&a with david uecke

From McDonald’s to L’Albatros (with a lot of time in  Charleston in between at some wonderful restaurants). The latest Q&A is with chef David Uecke. 1. What five things should be in everyone’s pantry? Kosher salt, rice wine vinegar, white pepper, coriander (either fresh or dried), red pepper flakes. I generally prefer everything to be […]

cook like david uecke (croque monsieur)

I’ve made no secret of my love for L’Albatros. Why would I? This restaurant is simply fantastic. I always leave happy and genuinely enjoy the food (especially the cheese!) and atmosphere (my favorite patio in town). I first tried this sandwich when we went for lunch one day and had Natalie with us. Little Miss […]

But why wait till then to celebrate the longest day of the year (and the museum’s newest galleries)? From now until Saturday, Bruell is offering a 3-course, summer solstice […]

review: wine & cheese tasting at l’albatros

I can’t think of a combination I like better than wine and cheese. Who doesn’t? Add some fresh bread, and I am one happy, happy girl. For as much as I enjoy cheese, whether at home or dining out (I prefer cheese at the end of my meal versus something sweet), I’ve never participated in a structured […]

cook like zack bruell

With the opening of Chinato, I’ve now completed my Tour de Bruell (if only repeat visits to Parallax, L’Albatros and Chinato was a sport…).  And while I haven’t tried these dishes yet, based on my numerous chef Bruell experiences, I’m eager to light up the stove. Bruell’s Seared Sea Scallops with Thai Curry 10 Jumbo […]
