MC Travels: A Foodie’s Austria

White asparagus soup with dumpling and salmon, totally sublime from Gasthaus Stainzerbauer, Graz

 

Austria isn’t especially known as a foodie destination, except possibly for the pastries and its being home of the chocolate Sacher torte named for the Viennese hotel. So when I had the chance to do a foodie’s tour of Austria, I welcomed the chance to confirm or debunk a myth. From the capital city of Vienna to Graz, the Alpine towns of Gastein and Salzburg, I did some serious research. The findings? Wait until you see the photos! Read Full Post & Comments »

Dashi, Japanese Cuisine At Its Best

 

Dashi Miami, the new 80 seat Japanese restaurant that opened as part of the River Yacht Club, showed up on my radar screen through its stunning food images on Instagram. The reality lived up to my expectations as I discovered on a recent visit to this culinary temple of Executive Chef Shuji Hiyakawa a protégé of Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto (and for my taste, a protégé that has possibly surpassed his mentor). The presentation is exquisite, with a liberal use of edible flowers and microgreens, and the food is refined, delicious, and exciting. They call it “progressive Japanese cuisine”. Then there’s the privileged setting, riverside, with floor to ceiling window walls that open up to river breezes and allow full views of our dramatic Miami sunsets. Read Full Post & Comments »

Fabulous Friday – $25K Taco

 

 

A $25,000 USD taco? Yes, you read right. It’s yours at the uber luxe Grand Velas Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. I’m proud to say that the idea for the world’s most expensive taco was that of yours truly (my public relations firm). The brilliant execution is owed to the resort’s  Executive Chef Juan Licerio Alcala. So what’s in this taco, what’s a fitting rare tequila to go with it,  and has anyone bought it? And if you want to check out the resort that made it all happen, I’m offering special rates for readers! Read Full Post & Comments »

Via Emilia 9, Authentic Slice of Emilia Romagna

Tagliatelle with prosciutto

 

All of a sudden there seems to be one new Italian restaurant after another opening, the way Asian themed ones seemed to be the culinary category du jour in the past few years. Most are pizzerias + limited entrée offerings with regional cuisines of Liguria, Naples, and Tuscany well represented . Now we have a very different Italian culinary experience with the family owned and operated Via Emilia 9 in South Beach. Walk in the door and you’ll find yourself transported to an authentic eatery in Emilia Romagna, the land known for its gourmet products ranging from balsamic vinegar and parmigiano reggiano to prosciutto, lasagna, bolognese sauce, and mortadella.  Read Full Post & Comments »
