The Coolest Beer:
The making of beer has changed dramatically over the centuries--particularly during the last one. The beverage has shifted from a rich, locally-produced staple to a blanched, sanitized drink. But in recent years, the pendulum has swung back again, and flavorful brews are widely available; you just need to know how to choose them. And we don’t mean simply picking up a six-pack of snazzy-looking “micro-brewed” or imported beer.
S.A. Prum::
Rieslings to die for Whether floral and fruity, delicate, subtle, and low in alcohol, or medium- or full-bodied, Rieslings from the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer in Germany are fabulously crisp and balanced. They stand up to rich foods like pork and foie gras while complementing spicy Asian, Caribbean and Indian foods.

Charming Brussels, Belgium: the "In" place to visit The Capital of the European Union is not only a busy metropolis with charming neighborhoods, world-class shopping and hotels, cultural life, museums, architecture, but a foodie heaven plentiful of gastronomic restaurants, fabulous beers, brasseries, regional cheeses and foods, street vendors, and chocolatiers.

Summertime And The Living Is Easy In Northern Burgundy: Rich in tradition, history, gastronomy and excellent wines, Burgundy is renowned for its warm hospitality and inimitable knack for enjoying life. Linda Watten enjoys the long, balmy evenings scented with lilac, wisteria, and climbing roses of her garden while feasting on local produce, wines and cultural events in neighboring Medieval towns.


Havana Salsa and Grill of Victory:

Food writer Viviana Carballo not only shares the memorable meals she had with her delightfully eccentric family in Havana Salsa, a vibrant memoir with seventy or more recipes, but she brings back the Havana of her childhood: the warm nights, the pounding surf, the characters and the magic that all Cuban-born émigrés remember with nostalgia. A BBQ judge for the past 16 years, Bill Brohaugh takes us to the bizarre world of Competition on the Barbeque circuit with his book The Grill of Victory.
