2012 Cayman Cookout: Day Three (Until We Meet Again…)

Sunday’s Moët & Chandon Champagne Brunch was perhaps one of the loveliest events of the Cayman Cookout. Closing a weekend of spectacular parties, demos, and tastings, the brunch always sells out, offering the opportunity to gorge on luxury items like caviar and made-to-order blinis, a fully-stocked seafood cold bar, sushi and dim sum, and a […]

Chef Eric Ripert on the Renovation of Le Bernardin

There is a majestic magic to New York’s Le Bernardin. Before arriving in New York in 2008 to attend my first New York City Wine & Food Festival, I preemptively made pre-theatre reservations at the famed seafood restaurant.

Daily Blender Exclusive: Chef Scott Bryan

Daily Blender Exclusive: Chef Scott Bryan

Admittedly, when my friend, sommelier Brett Feore, shared the details of his latest career move a few years back, I didn’t have much thought on the subject. A bit new to the restaurant world, particularly regarding the happenings of food-forward cities like New York, I was still trying to catch up on the who’s who […]

Daily Blender Exclusive: Chef Eric Ripert

Even with applause and accolade, Chef Eric Ripert has kept his culinary kingdom rather manageable. With restaurants in only a handful of cities across the East Coast – D.C.’s Westend Bistro, Philly’s 10 Arts, and Blue on Grand Cayman Island – Ripert has the recognition without the schedule, present most nights in the kitchen where […]

Friday Five: Five Last-Minute Foodie Christmas Gifts

Friday Five: Five Last-Minute Foodie Christmas Gifts

Fine, fine, I admit it. I don’t cook. The cookbooks on my shelves are either signed by people I admire or misdirected Christmas gifts from well-meaning folks who didn’t know my true side. I can do the basics – grilled cheese, meatloaf, maybe a pie. I just tend to leave the big stuff to the […]
