Every year it's a struggle to find independently run Florida farms that raise turkeys using sustainable farming methods.  The birds are popular during the holidays, but most of us chefs aren't buying whole turkeys the rest of the year.  Quite often the farms that we regularly buy eggs and chickens from will raise a few turkeys every year and give them to their favorite chef clients.  That's been the case for most of my culinar...

We recently took a road trip about 90 minutes north to Hawthorne, FL to visit Tracy Lee Farms.  As a general rule of thumb, we like to pay a visit to our suppliers a couple times every year to learn more about their operation and bring your questions to the farmers.  It's important to know the people who produce your food.  And we want to introduce you to someone doing things the right way.

I recently sat down with Sifu Mimi Chan, of the Wah Lum Temple to chat up sustainable agriculture, immigration, and addiction.   You can hear that podcast here.

I’ll give you some more details about our talk, but first let’s talk kung fu.  Sifu Mimi is the face and action behind Disney’s Mulan.  She has won multiple gold medals at international kung fu tournaments.  She has been named Woman of the Year by Inside Kung...

The sharing of food is a universal human bond.  Our best memories of food are connected to time spent with friends, family, even strangers around the dinner table.  Food brings people together in ways that nothing else can, especially around the Holidays.  The celebration of Hanukkah brings latkes to the table.  England has been eating mince pies around the Christmas table since the 13th century.  Brazil, despite being one of...
