Maple-Mustard BBQ Chicken

A quick and easy recipe that most everyone will enjoy. The sauce is an outstanding combination of flavors that work well for BBQ.

"No Reservations" Sichuan Cuisine

To all those familiar with "No Reservations,"

In this past weeks episode, Anthony Bourdain spent time in Melbourne, Australia. One of the standout restaurants was a Sichuan establishment. If anyone knows of any authentic Sichuan restaurants in the Manhattan area, I would very much appreciate you feedback.

Many thanks,

The Abu Dhabi Experience

Greetings to all!

At the end of the month, I am embarking on work related travels to the UAE and the city of Abu Dhabi. Any advice that could be given on local customs, cuisine, and everything else that is essential to see in this magnificent city would greatly be appreciated.

Salsa Recipes

To all those marvelous men & women who have been so good to share your ideas for food with myself and the rest of the culinary world, I proudly salute you. The feedback I received regarding something as simple as "Tuna Salad Sandwiches" was incredible! I now have another mission (should you chose to accept) which is to find the best recipe for salsa. All flavors are welcome, and nothing is out of bounds. Hot or mild, and everything in between. I look forward to hearing from you all.

Many Thanks!

Anyone else from Mpls. area headed to the Caymans to hang out with Anthony B.??

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Grand Cayman just over a month ago, and we can't wait to go back! Check out Copper Falls. It's fairly close to the Ritz-Carlton, and it's widely considered by locals to be one of the best restaurants on the island. Another place that I'd strongly recommend is the Lobster Pot. Excellent seafood and service! Both of these restaurants are lovely establishments, but if you're looking for a casual place to have lunch, check out Fidel Murphy's. It's a traditional Irish pub that serves fantastic food and has a wide variety of great beer on tap. The mahi-mahi sandwich is a must. Hope this helps, and have fun on your adventures in Grand Cayman!

heaps of lemon peels!

Do yourself a favor and save those lemon peels!!! Limoncello is one of many things you can make with them, but another use that I'd recommend is for cleaning purposes. I find that if I place two or three lemon peels in a greasy, sticky pan, fill it with cold water, and let it sit for an hour or so, I can clean it with ease. Lemons are a non-toxic, eco-friendly cleaner and solvent. "Green Uses for Lemons and Lemon Peels" by Gloria Campos is an a great article found at She offers wonderful insight to the many ways you can clean with lemons. Hope this helps!

Tuna Salad Sandwiches


So this maybe somewhat of a simple task for most of the registered members on this site, but I am curious to hear feedback regarding this classic. I would love to know if anyone has a receipe for tuna salad sandwiches that they would like to share. Albacore, ahi, yellowfin...what unique variations are out there in the land of epicurians? All input is welcomed and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Many Thanks,
