Mangoes have dazzled palates across the globe for centuries with their aroma, taste, texture, and seemingly endless shapes, sizes, and colors. In Miami alone there are over 250 varieties. Miami-based writer, critic, poet and educator Jen Karetnick is the award-winning author of nine books, including three this year alone: the recently published book Mango and two volumes  Prayer of Confession and Brie Season about to be released.
Jen’s nickname, Mango Mama, could not be more appropriate! Jen lives on the last acre of a historic mango plantation with her husband, two children; three dogs; four cats; and fourteen mango trees!  By the time July comes around, Jen uses mangoes in the most unexpected ways, in just about everything, cocktails, smoothies, savory and sweet dishes.
Along with her own recipes which she has developed over the years, the book Mango features recipes from a group of Jen’s buddies who happen to be Miami's most celebrated chefs.
From smoothies to cocktails, from mango blintzes to jerked grouper with mango-fig chutney, and mangozpacho (mango-infused gazpacho)--this book is  the ultimate book on Mango.

For decades we've watched obesity go from crisis to chronic disease affecting one third of America’s population. First, we assumed it was fat that was the problem, then it was carbs, then it was sugar, now it's gluten. But what if it isn't really any of the above? What if the culprit is so elusive that nobody thinks of even denouncing it?

According to Mark Schatzker, Americans add nearly 600 million pounds of flavorings to food each year, everything from syrups to spices and sauces for humans and palatants for animal feed which could be fueling America’s and the world’s obesity epidemic.

This new book is taking a bite out of the food industry. In "The Dorito Effect--The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor,” award-winning Canadian journalist Mark Schatzker argues that the food industry has expertly learned to manipulate flavor to make their products irresistible, while fruits, vegetables and meat have all become incrementally less delicious.  

“We’re all after deliciousness but we’re misdirecting our palates.  Everything is getting blander and simultaneously more seasoned. Everything is becoming like a Dorito.”

“We have taken great leaps forward in technology, allowing us to produce in the lab the very flavors that are being lost on the farm. Thanks to this largely invisible epidemic, seemingly healthy food is becoming more like junk food: highly craveable but nutritionally empty,” says author Mark Schatzker.  

mark schatzkerIn the well-written and fascinating “The Dorito Effect, the Surprising New Thruth About Food and Flavor” Mark Schatzker takes a look at the mysterious chemicals that make food delicious and bad for us; how artificial flavorings trick both the human and animal minds into nutritionally empty foods; at why chicken and other foods taste like “a roll of wet toilet paper” and why do consumers put up with the fact that modern food is the most compelling lie humans have ever told.

Listen as Mark Schatzker answers questions such as:  “Are we fooling people with package labelling using words that sound healthy like "natural"?”, “What can consumers do to bring around change?”

With in-depth historical and scientific research, The Dorito Effect casts the food crisis in a new light, weaving an enthralling tale of how we got to this point and where we are headed.  

Based on serious research backed by an extensive knowledge of history, chemistry and genetic engineering, the book reads like a thriller. It is an eye opener to anyone priding himself on being an independent human being.

David Downie’s  Passion for Paris is matched by insatiable curiosity, encyclopedic knowledge of French history and literature, love for the arcane and as importantly, a good pair of legs.  His new book  “A Passion for Paris.” Romanticism and Romance in the City of Light ” comes on the heels of the best-selling book  Paris to the Pyrenees: A Skeptic Pilgrim Walks the Way of Saint James.


David Downie is a multilingual Paris-based American nonfiction author, crime novelist and a travel, food and arts journalist whose work has been published in national and international media. A native San Franciscan who moved to Paris in the mid-1980s he now shares his time between France and Italy, and his life with his wife, photographer Alison Harris. They both own and operate the Paris, Paris tours a tour guide and custom walking company of Paris, Burgundy, Rome and the Italian Riviera. 

 

David grew up in San Francisco in the 70’s. His love of Paris and French culture was sparked during  the no less fascinating social and sexual revolution going on in California at the time.  Listen as his explain why and how did 19th century photographer and bohemian character Felix Nadar influenced his life.


In the superbly written “A Passion for Paris,” history becomes alive as statues of kings and courtesans, writers, musicians and painters stare down on their successors in love and war.

Mr. Downie attempt to define what makes Paris romantic and he focuses on the Romantic period in Arts and Literature to establish that it is the people who lived in its curving cobbled streets and met at its sidewalk cafes and leafy squares, who talked and wrote about it, like Balzac and Flaubert, that make Paris romantic.   

 

Listen as he explains how Romanticism emerged from the horrors of the Guillotine and the French Revolution  to turn Paris into the City of Light, Love and Romance and how the padlocks on the Pont des Arts and the ritual of the key throwing in the Seine ensued.


david downie1In his book David Downie seamlessly glides from literary characters to historic buildings. He finds the most amazing things hidden away in courtyards, cemeteries, parks, and never hesitates to steal into a building, climb one of the legendary “hidden stairs”  to track the steps of a love affair that happened over 200 years ago.


Listen as he tells us about the famous Place des Vosges and the scabrous love triangle of Victor Hugo, Adèle – his wife – and Ste. Beuve – her lover.


Balzac, Gauthier, Hugo, Baudelaire and other litterati lived and loved roaming the streets of Ile de la Cité.  Did they all know each other, swapping wives and lovers?


They all ended at the Père Lachaise, the repository of the greats. Listen as David Downie takes us to the alleys and through the tombs of those who are eternally alive through their works.


He often says that changes must occur for the same to continue, here referring to the way he describes the “terrorist cell” of young revolutionaries under the reign of Charles X and the Battle of Hernani. How different was it then than it is today?

 

Want to know what inspired the carriage seduction scene between Rodolphe and Emma in Flaubert’s Madame Bovary?  


After reading A Passion for Paris, you will never stroll in the Luxembourg gardens in the same way. All the statues will come alive, from that of the beloved cursed poet Baudelaire and the painter Delacroix to the writer George Sand, the cross-dressing feminist and her lovers, the poet Alfred de Musset and Chopin, among others, and the sarabande of characters from Murger’s La Bohème heading to Café Momus, whose book “Scenes from Bohemian Life” directly  inspired the famous  Puccini opera La Bohème.

 Just when we thought there was little more to discover in terms of wines and new wine regions in Spain, enters Cariñena from Aragón, Spain.


While it is one of the oldest protected growing areas in Europe, and the second oldest in Spain since the DO or Denomination of Origin was created in 1932 , it remained promotionally and operationally shy, selling most of their production to better known, more media-oriented appellations, until recently. 


The 1990s was a period of rapid development as small producers joined forces to become cooperatives, striving to adapt the robust wines to a more modern palate. As a result, exports have quadrupled since 1995 and it is now poised to burst unto the world markets with jazzy labels and consumer friendly flavors.


Lyn Farmer, wine director of the iconic wine event Veritage and a renowned wine writer has just returned from Cariñena to tell us all about this old and new wine region located in  the historic province of Aragón, North East of Spain, South of the Pyrennées, in the transitional area between the Iberian System and the Ebro Valley.  Cariñena vineyards – viticulture has been practiced there since 50 BC -  are located between Madrid and Barcelona,  about 50 km southwest of Zaragoza, on a plateau known as the Campo de Cariñena.


carinena 

The image that Cariñena  projects today, with its system of coops,  is that of “the next great grape, Garnacha from Cariñena.” The region is the source of the French Carignan grape, which is also grown in Italy, California and several other New World regions.


Listen as Lyn Farmer explains the difference between Cariñena and Garnacha or Grenache and why “Cariñena is the most intriguing combination of old-fashioned and traditional with the rabidly modern.”


Lyn Farmer walks us through a tasting of young and aged wines, Garnacha varietals and blends vinified  in the region, and conjures the image of the red, arid soils swept by hot winds and frozen in cold nights that produce the next iconic wine on America’s tables.

Have a waiter shave some truffles over your pasta and the price goes up astronomically. And the truffles we are referring to aren’t the kind you buy at Godiva. We are talking about a fungus grown on the roots of trees where soil and weather conditions are ideal.  Since the times of the Greeks and Romans these fungi have been used in Europe as delicacies, as aphrodisiacs, and as medicines. They are among the    most expensive of the world's natural foods, often commanding as much as $1500 per pound for Black truffles from Périgord – the most prized truffle in France–, and the legendary white truffles from Alba in Piedmont, Italy.

But, as Betty Hutton would have said in Annie Get Your Gun (back in 1950):  “anything you can do, we can do better.”   And  Susan Rice Alexander,  CEO/President of Black Diamond French Truffles, Inc and Susan Rice Truffle Products has set to prove it by developing one of the largest commercial truffle orchard in America focusing on  the Black Diamond French Périgord Truffle. 

truffles 001We had interviewed Susan in 2008, when she was just starting her truffle farm and we are thrilled to catch up with her and see what has happened since the time she started out as a real estate entrepreneur and purchased a 90-acre farm in Vass, North Carolina, for the timber in 2006. Over the course of the years, she gradually expanded the farm to about 300-acres making it one of, if not the largest truffle farm in the US.

 

Listen as Susan Alexander talks about the business of growing truffles in the USA, the dogs she uses to find the truffles and the reality of farming behind the magic of the truffle.
