  • It’s an oft-quoted line; “Cooking is art and baking is science.” Alton Brown proves that it’s all about the science! The Food Network host and resident food nerd brings his one-man show, “Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science” to the Broward Center on Apr. 19. With a perfect blend of science, food and music in two hours of pure entertainment, James Beard Award-winner Brown dishes out exciting experiments, sizzling puns and delicious delicacies, combined with interactive fun that gets audiences members involved. Tickets range from $45 to $125.

  • If you can’t find something to eat at Alibi, you are just too damn picky. We stopped by for drag brunch a few weeks ago and I was again astounded by the breadth of the menu offerings.

  • Raise a glass and toast in the new year while enjoying a delicious meal at some of these favorite dining spots.

  • Italy — the country of great cuisine, amazingly delicious and little-known wine varietals, olive oil, art and opera and cheese. It is estimated that there are over 450 different types of cheese made in Italy. Of these, 34 have been granted a protected status by the European Commission. Some of Italy’s most famous cheeses, such as Pecorino, are believed to have roots dating back over 2,000 years. While tracing any cheese’s exact history can be difficult, of one thing there is no doubt: Italy has a passion for cheese and an ability to create world-class cheeses that are loved and eaten around the world.

  • Although Food Network’s and Cooking Channel’s South Beach Wine & Food Festival (SoBeWFF) isn’t until Feb., tickets go on sale soon (if they haven’t already by the time you read this) and are snatched up quickly. With more than 90 events taking place from Feb. 22 through 26, it is widely recognized as one of America’s most prestigious food and dining festivals.

  • To paraphrase that great philosopher, Dorothy Gale, “Things come and go so quickly here.” In the six years that I’ve been covering dining in South Florida for SFGN, I have reviewed numerous restaurants in the same location.  

  • (WB) For sisters Dawn and Miranda, owners of Confections, a small family bakery in this small town located in the heart of East Texas 115 miles northeast of Houston, life is about love — love of baking sweet treats for everybody. 

  • Ask any foodie and they’ll tell you that cooking is far from a chore. For most it is relaxing and therapeutic. (Cleaning up on the other hand…) That’s true not just for the home cook, but in hospitals, businesses and schools as well. Cooking is increasingly being used in a variety of institutional settings for everything from job training to recovery.

  • While the hospitality industry has been decimated, five area eateries have made adaptations that have allowed them to survive during the pandemic.

  • With so many bars on the drive either serving food, or changing up their menus, not to mention the newcomers joining the party, we felt it was time to take a look at the fare that’s available. We have focused only on those places that are primarily known as bars or clubs, so Tropics and Rosie’s, both primarily restaurants are not included.

  • (SS) Even if bars are not allowed to reopen next week here in South Florida like the rest of the state, Hunters Nightclub Wilton Manors figured out a work-around.

  • Even after we go back to a sense of normalcy, the COVID crisis will have changed the way we dine out forever. Some of these changes are long overdue.

  • The Food and Drug Administration is banning imports of some fresh cilantro from Puebla, Mexico, after a government investigation found human feces and toilet paper in growing fields there.

  • South Florida is a foodie’s paradise. So why do you keep going to the same restaurants time and time again? While we all have our favorites, you owe it to yourself to break up the routine and try something new. I suggest you start with these five places, each extraordinary in its own way. I’ve included places throughout the Dade-Broward-Palm Beach areas because a good meal is often worth the trip.

  • Whether you’re serving an eight-course plated dinner or putting together a casual buffet, it’s the little things that make the difference between a gorgeous table that people will admire and a tacky spread that people will talk about behind your back. By following a few simple rules, you can easily put together a beautiful table. Of course, rules were made to be broken, so I’ve given you a few options for that, as well.

  • I was excited to see that the movie R-rated film called “Sausage Party” with some of my favorite make stars, opened a few weeks ago. Imagine my disappointment to find out that not only was it an animated film, it starred actual sausages!

  • Bona Italian Restaurant comes out ahead of neighbor Dolce Salato in this year's Best Of contest. Bona takes home two prizes this year in Broward with Best Pizza and Best Italian. 

  • This week read about Michaela Kennedy-Cuomo coming out as bisexual, Burger King announcing their new pro-LGBT chicken sandwich, and the Kansas City Chiefs hiring the first out Super Bowl coach.

  • Gertrude Stein may have famously said, “A rose is a rose is a rose.” Perhaps what she really meant is, “A rosé is a rosé is a rosé.”

  • The nice thing about shopping for foodies is that there’s always a gadget they don’t have. There are so many options at so many price points, that you’re certain to find something that is not only an apropos gift, but that also fits into your budget. Here are some of my favorites this year. Most are available directly from the company listed or from Amazon.

  •  

    Now that all that “Black Friday,” “Small Business Saturday” and “Cyber Monday” hype has died down, it’s time to go shopping without the crazies. Of course, the easiest and most convenient way to shop is in your underwear – or naked (by that I mean online, I have to specify, because in this town, you never know).

  • (SS) What happens when a Hamburger Mary’s franchise opens across the street from a former Hamburger Mary’s?
