After one too many margaritas, pounds upon pounds of queso, a few burritos and a whole lot of animal crackers (not to mention the countless hours sitting in the car), my body is screaming for good wholesome food and some serious outdoor activity. On one of our gas station stops in the middle of nowhere [...]
We’ve heard it our whole lives, “Don’t play with your food!”, but good thing Malaysian artist/architect Hong Yi (who also often goes by the nickname Red) decided not to listen. Yi spent the month of March creating a recent project, with one photo a day and her parameters being simple: the image had to be comprised entirely [...]
Everything that Canal House creators Christopher Hirsheimer and Melissa Hamilton make and photograph is delicious magic (especially their latest cookbook – get it), but I highly recommend signing up for their lunch by email so that you receive beautiful photos (plus descriptions!) like these every afternoon, providing lunch inspiration for days to come.
If you’re anywhere near the South, particularly the Southeast, and you survived New Years, the chances are you’re looking for that first bite of black eyes peas. According to Southern folklore, these little legumes are the first food item that should be eaten on New Year’s Day for good luck and prosperity well into the [...]
Homemade bread is the best. The way it smells and how those first few fresh-out-of-the-oven bites feel in your mouth…it’s heaven. The prospect of making it, however, can be a bit daunting. We’ve been known to make our own loaves from time to time, but the results can be hit or miss. When we came [...]
While at a yard sale the other day, I came across a huge selection of vintage cookbooks. The old pictures were stylish and lovely to look at, but the recipes themselves, naturally, were the main attraction. It’s common knowledge that casseroles were king in the ’50s, and fondue was a favorite in the ’70s, but [...]
You’ve been cooking for days and your house has been swarmed by family. You’re tired, overfed, and perhaps even feeling the symptoms of an impending cold. Now that Thanksgiving is behind you, it’s time to put up those feet and have a hot toddy. It’s a funny name when you think about it: ‘hot toddy’. [...]
The creative collective RUBIFOX is right up our alley. Recently formed by Simone Rubi and Janella Fox, the concept is aimed at bringing together a range of people involved in various artistic undertakings (what my mom would call “creative types”) for an evening of sharing and mutual inspiration. Each dinner features a unique and specific menu of [...]
Brooklyn-based Dépanneur considers themselves a convenience store. That may be an apt description if all urban convenience stores stocked elderflower soda, locally-sourced hand soap, and German Katje yogurt gummies along with their household cleaning supplies and cigarettes. Perhaps we could call them a locally-minded gourmet shop with a European grocery twist, but then you’d be missing their delicatessen [...]
Although you might not have been a North Seas dock worker or fisherman in Great Britain during the second half of the 19th century, there’s still a chance you know just how a good a newspaper full of fish ‘n chips are. Fish and chips originated in Great Britain due to an increase in trawl [...]
Our dearest Rachel of Academy Jewelry recently paired up with New York’s Of A Kind for a limited release of French Blue pieces. With the collaboration came an insider’s look to our lovely home city of Richmond, VA. Rachel covers all the essentials for a day trip to Richmond: coffee, shopping, museums, downtime, and of course, [...]
In the past couple of years, Richmond has seen an incredible growth of new restaurants. From coffee shops with lines out the door to upscale southern tapas bars, this city has birthed new culinary creations that are all worth trying. But let’s take a second to look back at a gem that never once got [...]
