It took roughly 14 years of struggle in the rap game before 2 Chainz finally became a household name, but once he hit the big time, he never looked back, embracing only the finer things in life. With that in mind, it only makes sense that the rapper from Atlanta would eventually partner with GQ for a show called “Most Expensive Shit”, a web series which follows 2 Chainz as he samples some of the most decadent, over-the top items money can buy.

Throughout the rapper’s career, 2 Chainz has often established himself as a rap game gourmand. I mean, with lyrics like “I got bunions on bunions, yellow ring look like a funyon, or somethin’”, how could you not be a good authority?

Winefest 2018: Highlights

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 3 views

Louis Pasteur once said “a bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world.” That’s because wine, while a seemingly simple beverage, becomes more complex the more you study it. Old world versus new world, tannins or no tannins, oaked or unoaked – it can be a little overwhelming. Luckily, you don’t have to be an expert to appreciate wine, and for that reason, wine is wonderful.

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Hawaiian cuisine? Poke or Spam? Roasted pig at a luau feast or steamed things in banana leaves? Tropical drinks served in a pineapple? Okay, the last one doesn’t really count, but they all showcase Hawaii’s diversity. The fact of the matter is Hawaiian food doesn’t fit into one category. It is a melting pot of flavors, drawing from Japan, Korea, Portugal, the Philippines, America, China and other Polynesian islands.

Tomato and Basil Bruschetta with Balsamic Reduction

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 3 views
An old Italian proverb says: “Day-old bread, month-old oil, and year-old wine”. Although the speaker and context of the proverb are unknown, I am fairly certain they were eating bruschetta at the time. Bruschetta is a rustic dish, exuding the perfect balance of acidity, salinity, and herbaceousness. From the verb “bruscare” (or “to toast”), bruschetta dates back to the Etruscan age, when farmers occupying the land between Rome and Tuscany began brushing bread with olive oil and garlic then baking it in the oven. The dish has since evolved with the addition of toppings such as meats, vegetables and all kinds of cheeses. Despite the endless variations, the basic concept of a bruschetta remains the same – simple, fresh, and flavorful ingredients. The bruschetta recipe below was given to me by my friend Alyssa of Alyssa Cooks Catering. It is quick and easy, and when paired with a glass of wine, is the perfect way to start any evening.

Scrambled Eggs by Gordon Ramsay

There are probably 100 reasons to love or hate Gordon Ramsay. He’s relentless, foul-mouthed, demands perfection and is not afraid to unleash his vicious temper on anyone around him.  He is also a philanthropist, an incredible businessman, a huge proponent of responsible farming and animal husbandry (if you’ve never watched his documentary “Shark Bait”, you should). Most notably, he’s a seven-starred Michelin chef.

Fundamental to Western philosophy is the dinner party. The ancient Athenian supper that Plato describes in his Symposium has all the familiar tracings of our modern gatherings: food, drinks, and friends – not to mention attempts at moderation and long, heated discussions on love. While our parties might not be exactly as Plato described (e.g. wives are now allowed to attend), the framework was there. In the end, a dinner party is a simple and enduring combination of ingredients made unique by hosts and guests alike.
