About this blog: I've been attracted to food for good and bad reasons for many years. From eating disorder to east coast culinary school, food has been my passion, profession & nemesis. I've been a sugar addict, a 17-year vegetarian, a food and environment pioneer, macrobiotic, Master Cleanser, ayurvedic, and officially-designated health-nut or party-girl (depending on the year). Professionally, I've worn many industry hats including: line cook, corporate chef, Food Coach, caterer, product developer, restaurant reviewer, culinary school teacher, corporate wellness educator, food co-op clerk, author, and even Cirque-du-Soleil lead popcorn concessioner! For years I managed an outdoor kitchen, deep in the bear-infested woods of Tahoe, and also for hospitals (the most unhealthy kitchen I ever worked in?), Singapore high-rises, mule-pack trips, Canadian catholic rectories, and more events than I could ever recall. Yet I still keep discovering. Actually, I adapt everyday by new lessons learned from teachers, customers and students. However there is one food truth I now hold sacrosanct: Eaters are motivated by pleasure. So no matter what we discuss here - recipes or restaurants, food politics or pairings, local events, food as art, or even as God, I will always come from a high-vibe, party perspective. Oh I do still long to change the world with great tasting food, but know in my heart, "If it ain't fun, it don't get done!" So - wanna come to the Food Party? By the way - it's a potluck. (Hide)

Psssttt...Rossotti's Picks the Date
Uploaded: Aug 5, 2019
Guess who's re-opening?
For the...6th time (?) in 167 years. One of the oldest bars in the state. Check out the history of the Alpine Inn / Rossotti's here.
Many a Food Party!
have been penned in this prestigious backyard. I sneeked a looksie over the fence to catch the new bar,
picnic tables, and what's this shed on the right... another bar? Covered seating? Can't wait to find out.
I don't remember this placard in the parking lot. Am I blind or is it new?
I bet Molly returns in spirit for the opening.
If an attractive, older woman whisks past your table with an ethereal flair and an "everything OK?"
...please say hi for me :)
Shhhhh....let's keep it to ourselves for now.
What is it worth to you?
