Hamburg, Berlin, November...

I think I got there at about 6:30 am before the sun came up - and started at the "top" and wandered all the way down. There was a great rastafarian coffee guy, some good pastry, lots to see, sample & eat. Enjoy!!

Hamburg, Berlin, November...

In Hamburg-

Cafe Gnosa - http://www.gnosa.de/ wonderful relaxed cafe for breakfast, lunch, early dinner

Gröninger Privatbrauerei - http://www.groeninger-hamburg.de/ - Excellent beer & homemade sausages

So glad to hear you're planning on the Hamburg Fishmarket - it was one of my favorite things about Hamburg - be sure to get there early!! I took a taxi from my hotel and he dropped me right at the entrance!

Denver local eats?

Thanks a ton - to clarify the "greasy spoon" comment - my main goal is locally grown food, sometimes a low budget place specializes in that type of food and I'm a true chowhound that seeks out these special places :) But, will also gladly pony up for a gourmet experience. Thanks to all for the suggestions - this helps a bunch!

Denver local eats?

I'm headed to Denver for a conference (at the convention center) and I'm looking for some dinner spots that feature local/regional cuisine - any suggestions? Thanks!

Shipping wine from France to US

I have searched the boards but have not been able to find anything too recent -- can I ship wine from France to my home address in the US? If not, what is the best way to get it home? I want to bring a few cases home and I'm willing to pay extra baggage fees if that's the best way to go about it. Thanks in advance for any advice!

Le Cordon Bleu Workshops

Has anyone ever taken one? Are they really hands on -- small courses? Any other recommendations for day cooking classes/workshops in Paris? Thanks in advance!

Moving to Minot

You would *think* that would be the case...my sister lived there for 3 years. I'm a foodie through and through and for three years worth of visits - the pickings are pretty slim.

The Rolli-n-pin may be the home cooking place you're referring to...not far from the airport. OK breakfasts.

You can get local beef at the grocery store and there is a farmer's market starting in July - http://www.localharvest.org/farmers-m...

The most upscale restaurant in town is Ten North Main - http://goodfoodnicedrinks.com/ten/food - my sister ate there a few times and said it was ok.

I thought the Bagel Stop & Book Nook had the best coffee in town - and pretty close to real bagels (for Minot standards.)

I'm not dissing Minot -- it's totally ripe for a foodie revolution! :)

I had a STUNNING evening at Picasso - had the grilled octopus - amazing. The bartender and owner were beyond hospitable. A HIGH recommend! The sangria was spectacular!

RIP Rafals-Detroit Eastern Market

this is a bummer - Though I do my best to shop local, I get all of my spices from http://www.worldspice.com -- excellent customer service and "old school", no credit cards necessary!

Headed to Hamburg soon, not too much on the boards about food in the city -- any suggestions? I'm not familiar with German food, so generic foods to look out for are welcome as well. Thanks!

new gas grill recommendations

I have searched the boards -- looks like Weber is a hands down winner...just checking to see if there are other updated suggestions/recommendations! We do not need a side burner but our old grill that just died (a costco tuscany grill) had a rotisserie and rotisserie infared burner that we used all the time...unfortunately, the grill completely rusted on the inside after 2 years of use. costco stood by their product and gave us a full refund...so the rotisserie is a must have feature in our new model! :)
Thanks in advance.

suggestions for Jamaican celebration food

I have been invited to a party celebrating the graduation of a friend who is Jamaican -- are there any "typical" celebratory foods/drinks to bring a little bit of "home" his way (we are in the midwest)?
Thanks!
