The ideal dim sum playground

Food is often defined by flavor, but let’s not forget about texture. Crumbly, velvety, or gooey, food is meant to be felt as much as tasted. With its myriad of shapes, preparation and ingredients, Chinese dim sum is an ideal playground to explore food’s tactile nature, and Jade Dynasty Seafood Restaurant has a few new…

Getting Ahead with Cabbage

A food snob I am not. Although, as editor of this publication, I guess I should expect that some may make that assumption. But just for the record, that is as far-fetched from the truth as possible.

Always catfish. We’d take them to the local seafood restaurant (dubbed “fish camps” in the South) and hawk ‘em to the…

Chomp Away on Pork Chop

For the avid meat eater, there’s nothing better than ribs, sausage, shoulder or chops grilling up a storm. If you haven’t guessed it, the common denominator here is pork. Oftentimes, pork is overshadowed by beef and chicken, but not this time. In fact, let’s put those on the back burner for now, because I’m in…

Rockin’ the Lobster

The ongoing debate of savory versus sweet is always a battle within me. Recently, my sweet tooth has been running rapid, and it takes a load of sugar to satisfy it. Thankfully, Valentine’s Day just passed, so my stash of chocolate, cookies and candies has been replenished. However, conflict always occurs when a waft of…
