Rating Service 9/10, Food 9/10
Been craving Shanghai 456's tasty xiao long bao and potstickers, so we round up the crew (and my family) for dimsum style dishes alongside traditional Shanghainese cuisine. The unpretentious decor hasn't changed and neither has the badly translated menu, but there is something [...]

The Starkville Food Tour may be nearing its end, but we went out with a bang at The Veranda Restaurant near the Mississippi State University campus and a final hurray at City Bagel Cafe on University. In case you missed it, check out Part One, Part Two and Part Three. [...]


French Fridays with Dorie: Twenty-minute honey-glazed duck breasts

Posted by Mardi@eatlivetravelwrite under Top Foodie Blog
This week’s French Fridays with Dorie dish – 20 minute honey glazed duck breasts – really proved that you don’t need a whole lot of time or fancy ingredients to create a gourmet meal.  I mean, who ever heard of duck breast ready to eat in 20 minutes? To tell you the truth, though, it [...]

Smorgasburg was so awesome not just because of the food I got to eat there, but because of what I got to take home! I took home two lovely duck breasts from Hudson Valley Duck Farm’s stand. Ms. H was coming into town so I decided to [...]


Charcutepalooza October: Stretching

Posted by Mardi@eatlivetravelwrite under Top Foodie Blog
This month’s Charcutepalooza challenge was one I really enjoyed.  First of all, nearly all of the options (rillettes, confit and roulade) appealed to me – the galantine I will perhaps try at some point in the future.  In any case, as soon as Neil saw that he was able to make duck confit again, he [...]


The Great Turduckening

Posted by Mango Lassie under Top Foodie Blog
I have a policy of never reviewing the food my friends make. I see it as a largely pointless and potentially harmful exercise. If I say good things about a friend’s food, my readers may think I am merely being nice. If I say bad things, then I may lose a friend, something worth eating [...]


A Taste of Italy at Towne

Posted by Bianca Garcia under Top Foodie Blog
An event celebrating my favorite cuisine, the chance to win a Ferrari for the weekend, and all proceeds benefiting a cause that's very near and dear to me - that was the A Taste of Italy evening at Towne last Monday. We were promised "a spectacular evening celebrating all things Italian," and it was pretty spectacular, [...]


Parlor Market

Posted by Gidget Eats under Restaurants, Top Foodie Blog
Forget diamonds, dessert is a girl’s best friend. I’m the kind of girl who prefers experiences over objects. If given the choice between jewelry or a meal out, I’d wholeheartedly pick the meal every single time. For this milestone birthday, my husband spoiled me with both earrings and dinner. And not just any dinner. I [...]


Cooking Class at Stir

Posted by Bianca Garcia under Top Foodie Blog
How did you learn to cook? My cooking skills were born out of necessity. I never had any interest in cooking when I was younger (my interests were mostly in eating) but when I moved to Boston seven years ago, I quickly realized that I cannot survive on restaurant meals and take out and junk food [...]


Brunch at Om

Posted by Bianca Garcia under Restaurants, Top Foodie Blog
What do you think of when you hear the word Om? I think of yoga. Meditation. A serene place where I can relax. But now, when I hear the word Om, I think of eggs. And brunch. [...]
