Rino’s Place

Rino’s Place

Jul 19, 2015

    When visiting landmark restaurants in major cities, I try my best and temper expectations.  Everything I have heard and read about Rino’s in East Boston was that it was fantastic.  Here is a picture above of the street corner where it is located.  What you don’t see here are strip malls, huge parking lots, and flashy signs and lights....

Millcreek Cafe & Eggworks

Millcreek Cafe & Eggworks

Jul 11, 2015

    Every once in a while I drive by one of my favorite places and think about the pictures and review that I did there.  One of those places, and one of the best breakfast spots in Salt Lake City is Millcreek Cafe & Eggworks.  I recommend it often and visit it often.  The other day I was scrolling through my blog and tried to locate my review,...

Venice, Italy

Venice, Italy

Jul 5, 2015

 Stop number three on my European vacation took us to beautiful Venice, Italy.  Venice was as described, beautiful culture and architecture, and an experience Monica and I will never forget.  Of course I have a hidden agenda on every trip that I take, and that is centered around food.  I only fulfilled a few of my covert goals, so a return visit is going...

Fiore Wood Fired Pizza

Fiore Wood Fired Pizza

Jul 3, 2015

  Fiore Wood Fired Pizza recently did a catering event for my company.  There are food trucks and then there are food palaces on wheels.  These guys have kicked up their presentation up a notch.  The truck looks like the folks on American Chopper got a hold of it, and after a few hours of making modifications this was the end result.  Turns out the pizza...

The Red Food Truck

  The horses are out of the stables, the cat is out of the bag, the toothpaste is out of the tube… doesn’t really matter how you state it.  This little food truck with the straight forward name is fast losing it’s title as the SLC food truck scene’s best kept secret.  This truck is here to stay! The straight forward approach they...

Good Times and Great Food in Barcelona, Spain

Good Times and Great Food in Barcelona, Spain

Jun 21, 2015

 Barcelona, Spain just might be my favorite European city for many reasons.  The weather in early June when we visited was amazing.  The beach just off the Barcoloneta neighborhood was as good as anywhere I’ve been.  The people were helpful and polite everywhere we went, but perhaps the infrastructure of the city was what impressed me the most.  The...

Saturday’s Waffle

Saturday’s Waffle

Jun 20, 2015

    I was recently asked what the typical food that defines Salt Lake City is.  I really had to take a second and scratch my head and ponder over that question.  Salt Lake City has a little of everything for everybody.  I mean, we have fry sauce, and dutch oven cooking, and buffalo burgers, but I don’t know if there is that iconic dish that has...

Delicious Eating in London, England

Delicious Eating in London, England

Jun 11, 2015

 Last month I had a chance to attend FoodieHub.tv‘s Global Food Awards in London, England.  It was an amazing experience to take my love of food to a global level.  I realize that most of my reviews have been in Salt Lake City, Utah, and the United States and South America.  London and Europe has been eating and cooking much longer.  In fact walking...
