“I was always a good adventurer. I was never afraid of risks. I always had a good philosophy about risks. The only risk is to waste your life, so that when you die, you say, “Oh, I wish I had done this.” I did everything I wanted to do, and I continue to.”
– Francis Ford Coppola
Our philosophy? Live a life of adventure. But what exactly do we mean when we say adventure?
We mean living! From finally nailing that Beef Wellington recipe you've been working on for years to parasailing over the Atlantic to taking a cross country road-trip to see an old friend to bingeing our favorite show on Netflix. It's a life without regrets.
We believe in the splendor and satiety of the every day, but also the excitement of the exotic.
Nothing is too big or too small to be an adventure.
So whether you take the road less traveled or the road well worn, take the one that matters to you. Make your mark. Define your own adventure.
It’s always nice to have an easy dish in your repertoire that can be served either as a quick meal or as an impressive appetizer to bring to a party.
Don’t let the name fool you – this is not a healthy dish. It is, however, what I would classify as healthy-ish, as in it does use all fresh and whole ingredients.
Talk about comfort food. This layered Eggplant Parmesan is perfect for feeding a lot of your favorite people or making for a Sunday dinner and having leftovers all week!
Tortilla Espanola is one of my favorite foods. Period. Not to be confused with a tortilla – it’s an egg dish full of olive oil, potatoes and onions. It’s easy, filling and is a complete crowd pleaser at every meal
Rainy season can sometimes really drive you crazy. Dark, dreary days followed by long dark evenings – it gets monotonous after a while!
What’s funny about Manhattan Clam Chowder is that it’s origins are actually from Rhode Island, a very easily arguable point in New England.
Some weeks are full of things to do, people to see and places to go. Others are a little bit more low key and potentially in need of a midweek pick me up. That’s where these lamb tacos come in.
As an addition to our weekly recipes, we’ll be sharing new music releases that we hope you’ll enjoy. First up is “Ruins,” by First Aid Kit.
I was recently back in my home town of Philadelphia. It’s a great city, full of amazing history, architecture, people (we’re not as mean as they say we are) and food.
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season full of good company, good food, good wine, and of course, plenty of adventures.
It’s that time of year again. The most wonderful time of year! And with the most wonderful time of year comes the most wonderful amount of parties, entertaining and noshing.
One of my most favorite holiday foods are latkes. Latkes are potato pancakes that we eat over Hanukkah and go with just about anything else on the dinner table.
Risotto is one of those dishes that takes a little bit of elbow grease but is in fact insanely easy.
I think that we can all agree that sometimes life gets crazy and even finding the time to put dinner on the table feels overwhelming.
Some nights call for takeout and some nights call for a little something special. With the season change comes the daylight change
With no empirical evidence to back up my theory, I’d say that fall is the most beloved of all seasons.
I think that when a lot of people think of lamb, they think of celebrations, the holidays, etc. It is my opinion that lamb shouldn’t be something reserved for a special occasion.
Dessert is an exceptionally important part of life. It gives you a way to indulge once in a while and this cake really does the trick.
Shakshuka is one of those meals that is so easy you can’t believe how delicious it is. It’s a perfectly simple meal for a weeknight dinner or a quick way into a warm weekend lunch.
One of the stars of these late summer soirees should be the oft forgotten fig - its season quickly fleeting, its flesh both sweet and savory and its color vibrant and indicative of these late summer days.
Ah, September. The month that asks you to return your white pants to whence they came and implores you to pull out your well-worn sweaters and boots.
Summer colds are the absolute worst. They come on quick and force you to spend precious summer daylight under the covers, binging on shows you’ve seen one hundred times.
I’m a big believer that all summer adventures should include dessert. There are certain desserts that just seem to make sense in summer and not at any other time of the year.
Wow. That’s all I can really say about our time at the Newport Folk Festival this year.
Pesto – one of the tastiest, easiest, most versatile ways to spice up just about anything. First of all, it’s bright green. Second of all, it tastes like cheese and basil, which are arguably two of the best things in life.
I like to think that through food and wine you can be wherever you want to be whenever you want to be there.
Summer seems to be a season when every ounce of time is planned. Warm Saturdays and Sundays are for weddings and boat trips and pool parties.
Summer in the city: humidity radiates from everything, and somehow even the most powerful A/C doesn’t hold up...
July 4th weekend is a great time to gather your friends and family and celebrate our great nation. It’s also a great time to gather your friends and family and have a reason to celebrate life in general.
If there’s one thing that's for certain – it’s that summer is time for burgers. On the grill or in cast iron. On a picnic table or for a living room picnic. There’s really no wrong way to eat a burger in the summer.
There’s something about summer that makes me crave Clam Chowder. It feels completely counter-intuitive – a hot, creamy soup on a hot day?
This summer, there is absolutely no doubt that you will be invited to a
So…all of a sudden your best friend called her boyfriend who called his buddies and now you’ve got about 15 people
The fairground was amazingly right smack in the middle of downtown Napa, not in a parking lot miles away from all humanity. The convenience of it all had me hooked before we even walked in.
BottleRock. The word had me excited for months. As someone who has lived, played and worked in wine country I shamefully had never been to experience it before.
