Meanwhile back in NY

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

32 bridge I left Rochester in 1979 in the pursuit of new adventures in cultures, food, personalities and the differences and common thoughts people share.

It’s been beyond my dreams of fun, traveling around the world and living in several places: San Francisco, Atlanta, Tiburon and Mill Valley, Santa Fe, Cabo San Lucas, Oregon, Hilton Head Island and now Sonoma. But I feel the time has come to go back to my roots and explore the local food and wine scene there.

I’ve had friends send me Rochester food specialties and realize I miss those old flavors. I’ve decided to pack up my antiques, most of which are heading back from going on all my travels, and come back with me.  I’ve often said that my furniture has seen more of North America than most people.

The food and wine scene has exploded in Western New York and it will be fun to revisit old haunts and explore new.

I will be posting my findings and welcome you to join me along the way.

Revival of Classic Recipes

Saturday, October 10th, 2015

CookingTipsTV’s concept was born 20 years ago with the idea of showcasing classic recipes from around the world. Little did I realize, these recipes would still have “legs” after all these years. The fun part is that they’re more popular then ever!

In fact, some of the chef’s who are presenting in the videos, are now food ambassadors for their country. It’s no surprise. These talented individuals are passionate and knowledgeable about their indigenous foods and convey their message with pride.

I welcome you to view the videos and enjoy the recipes that are true classics.

Have a video of your classic recipe? Go ahead and upload and share!
