cook like michael annandono: lobster fra diablo

Being Italian, I am incredibly picky when it comes to dining out for such cuisine. And while there are a lot of decent Italian restaurants throughout the city, I’m not overly impressed by the majority of them. However, there is one that I constantly recommend when people ask for my favorite Italian restaurant – Michaelangelo’s […]

i scream, you scream for jeni’s at heinen’s

Since I do most of my grocery shopping at Heinen’s (or heiny’s as my two-year-old affectionately calls it), I’ve been patiently waiting for my local store to carry my favorite ice cream. And the wait is now over. Beginning post Thanksgiving week (perfect timing, right?), all 17 Heinen’s will now carry Jeni’s Ice Creams. Starting […]

Since its opening, Parallax has been one of my favorite Cleveland restaurants. I have never experienced anything there but wonderful food and service. I love the atmosphere and creative menu. The sushi is some of my favorite in town and either patio is great to sit back and enjoy the night with friends. Here, chef […]

cook like chef andy dombrowski: fennel salad

Funny thing – I used to dislike fennel. And I don’t really know why. Perhaps it’s the anise smell (of which I never cared for and had a bad reaction to Sambuca once and therefore developed an aversion to anything that reminded me of it). This all changed when chef Jonathon Sawyer was at Bar […]
