The Art of Hospitality and the Thrill of Travel

“Food should be fun.”
~ Thomas Keller, chef
“The dining tables weren’t herded in a separate “dining room” but actually flow into the kitchen, so the ballet of the kitchen staff is in your face. In a sense, as you dine, you’re part of the dance.”
“The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
~ Augustine of Hippo
“One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”
~ Luciano Pavarotti, opera tenor
“All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.”
~ John Gunther, American journalist and author
“Passion just explodes in his kitchen. It is so raw and honest, all you can do is smile. I heard him talk about the night’s menu to the waitstaff. He had them tasting. He was as good a teacher as I have ever seen. And I was lusting for their food.”
I perused the cocktail list and ordered the Heartbreaker, for its name as much as for its ingredients. My Heartbreaker was a mix of subtle but amazing flavors - lemon, rosemary, and apple. These were ingredients I would never have imagined together in a drink but now can’t imagine one without.
“A great palate and nose is akin to the golden goose for winemakers, and many reputations are made by the ability to blend masterfully and consistently.”
