My Kind of Las Vegas

20 Oct 2009, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in food, travel

When I decided to go to BlogWorld & New Media Expo this year, I had one of those double-edged sword moments. I couldn’t wait to see old friends and make new ones — but ugh, Las Vegas. It’s the one town I try to avoid, because it just isn’t for me. My kind of gambling involves business risk, so I am maddened by the “ding-ding-ding” when I walk through casino mazes designed to keep you trapped inside when you just want daylight. This trip, thankfully, was a bit different. Planet Hollywood Resort invited me to stay as their guest during…

We kicked off our tour of the Savour Food & Wine Festival in Halifax, Nova Scotia last night with a tasting dinner at The Five Fisherman, situated in one of the city’s oldest buildings. Chef Dafydd Williams-Jones and restaurant manager Gary MacDonald treated us to a tasting of Nova Scotia specialties, which were wonderfully enhanced by the presence of sommelier Avery Gavel and Gary Ramey of Blomidon Estate Winery, who guided us through each course with a selection from his and other local vineyards. Here is a little sampling of what we tasted last night. We wish you could have…

Food Philosophy Video #17: Cocina 88 – Guadalajara Chef Mark and I explored the delicious flavors of Guadalajara, Mexico with a dinner at Cocina 88, where I tasted the freshest, most tender calamari that has ever found its way to my lips.

Table 8 South Beach

06 Aug 2007, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in chefs & restaurants

Well, now that Chef Mark and I are back from Miami, I thought it might be nice if I shared a little bit of our Miami Spice tasting tour with you. When we received our itinerary, I was ecstatic to discover that we would be dining at Govind Armstrong’s Table 8 in South Beach. Govind is on a very short list of chefs who inspire me with their food philosophy, as he is what I like to call a master of simplicity: His mission is to highlight the beauty of locally-sourced ingredients in their finest state, coaxing them to a…

Thai One On

20 Apr 2007, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in Uncategorized

Mark and I finally had a chance to dine at Pam Real Thai Food (49th St betw. 9th & 10th) in NYC, and it lived up to everything we’ve been hearing. Among other rave reviews, a friend of mine told me it was the best Thai she’s had outside of Bangkok, so all we needed was an excuse and a MetroCard. We sampled Duck Tamarind, Pad Thai (had to test it out), Lemongrass Shrimp, and the ever-elusive Nuar Nam Tok. I have been searching for that damn salad everywhere in NY, and have at last found it! On their menu…
