Live To Eat

Let’s face it, I have not bounced back to my pre-holiday regimen. My juicer isn’t doing the kind of swift business of a few weeks ago.This can become very scary if I don’t get hold of myself.Although while watching a movie last night, I sipped an all – fruit smoothie instead of ice cream. Of…

Giving Thanks

How thankful am I to have an authentic patisserie / brasserie in my neighborhood?So very, very thankful

I Got Beef

Today was a very good food day.Actually, I barely ate a thing. a glass of chocolate almond milk, a peach, and a handful of cashews.Then I made a trip to the market because my hormones were crying out for a steak.That’s really all I remember.All I know is I returned home $65 lighter because I…

The Good Life

A famous song lamented the onset of a down mood on rainy days and mondays. But what of sunny days and sundays? When life is good, life is good!

But when a day of meetings ends with a private Fall 2012 preview and dinner at the Valentino showroom, I have no reason…

Bowled Over

True story. I was at one of my favorite spots Le Pain Quotidien. I sat at the communal table and considered my options on the menu. My server suggested the turkey chili because in her words it was amazing. Of course in a place like Beverly Hills, I’ve heard that superlative to describe shoes, manicures and pilates instructors.
