Amsterdam. Starbucks Secret Menu - Best Starbucks Teas. After learning about the delicious Frappuccinos you can get off the Starbucks Secret Menu, we realized there's a whole world of beverages out there that we never even knew about — including a sweet variety of teas, from peach to raspberry to Swedish berry.

Starbucks Secret Menu - Best Starbucks Teas

Can you say best discovery EVER? Just note that since the "secret menu" isn't actually promoted by Starbucks, you'll have to ask the barista to make the drink using the ingredients listed below — so have your phone ready to check back here.

Japan. Vancouver. USA. COPENHAGEN DAY 2: NOMA & RADIO. The next morning we did’nt not wake up full but we did wake up late.


We had just enough time to get ready and then walk to our next dining destination Radio. the Restauranteur, Claus Meyer, formerly of Noma has a good thing going here. He has put the chef duo Jesper Kirketerp and Rasmus Kliim at the helm. These chefs not only no how to cook and experiment in the kitchen but they also know how to source there own food…all of which, besides the proteins, come from their own field on the island of Lilleø.

The design on the restaurant was right up my alley! The food was delicious and a few of the dishes were on par with Geranium. One can never have too much Dill! This dish was one of our favorites! The cheeses in Denmark are incredible. This Dessert reminded Jose and I a lot of dessert that Joel from Community table would make.

2012 European Review

I did my fair share, with trips to Copenhagen, Paris and Spain. The real globe trotter here is Jose. He has covered tremendous amount of ground this year with multiple visits to Belgium, France, London and Spain. Each trip was carefully constructed with each dining destination going through a fair of amount of deliberation. What we enjoyed most about all this travel are the fantastic people we met and dined with along the way!

How to make healthy choices every day

Remember how I like pretending that baking is easy? Well, I’ve done it again! I actually wanted to make a gingerbread recipe last year. I even went out and bought a cute set of cookie cutters for the occasion as soon as they appeared in the stores. Let me just preface this by saying, this was at the very end of my pregnancy and pre-baby. So, fast-forward to the present moment: my mental wherewithal mostly in tact after the first 12 months of motherhood, and the desire to be involved in some kind of holiday tradition tugging at my heart strings. If you follow me on Instagram, you will recall a certain Michelin-man-shaped gingerbread puddle that I posted last week. At this point, in a frustrated frenzy, my husband chimed in for the pep talk.

Alinea At Home. Alineaphile - Recreating the food of Alinea Restaurant. The Alinea Project. Let’s learn about King Crab.

The Alinea Project

Fresh Alaskan Red King Crab is a bit of a culinary unicorn. There are two other recipes in this book that call for it, but in both cases I substituted fresh local Dungeness crab. My original google searches for it about 3 years ago turned up very few results that didn’t intersect with Costco; Chowhound is littered with “Q: Where can I find King Crab in X area?

A: Costco” posts. Local fish markets in the Bay Area don’t carry it, despite carrying live Dungness crabs, lobster, even live uni or softshell crabs if you’re looking during the right time of year. So I started digging. 1980 apparently represented the peak of the king crab industry; Alaskan fisheries produced ~200 million lbs. of crab that year. Alaskan King Crab are fished from the their native homeland of the Bering Sea. Monterey Bay acknowledges this strongly-undesirable situation, and dissuades consumers from buying the cheaper Russian crab (which only encourages perpetuation of the problem). Hm.

I posted this picture of a "dumpling" on Twitter last weekend and it generated quite a response.


Many people felt that the word dumpling implied something small and I'll admit I was surprised when they set a plates of these in front of me. Of course looking back at the menu later I realized that they were actually, "pot stickers," shrimp and leek pot stickers to be exact. Of course those much smaller dumplings you can see in the back of the picture are the pork pot stickers so you can understand how there could be some confusion.

Dumplings can be steamed, boiled or fried. Pot stickers are known as such specifically because of their cooking method. In this case the size proved to be somewhat detrimental to the experience.

So much in fact, that the gentleman gourmet scarfed one down after an eight-course meal — and considered it dessert. That's one for S.F., zero NYC, if we're tallying our city's great contributions to the culinary landscape. Hoping to settle the rivalry in a gloves-off duel between our two foodie burgs, we tracked down the fantastic Mr. Rapoport at Hakkasan, where he was hosting the preview of Uncork'd, the magazine's annual food-festival happening this May in Las Vegas. And the victor? Read on for his love of homemade ramen (his Super Bowl snack of choice — sorry nachos), the condiment he'd take to the grave, and his next global tasting adventures.
