Although I promised myself this wouldn’t be a credit card blog I’m allowing myself this one post to discuss the credit cards I currently have and why they make sense to me. Because after all, they are an integral part of how I am able to travel as much as I do. Let me begin... Continue Reading →
Travel and dinning have always been priorities of mine. Nearly as much as I love creating dishes in the kitchen, I love to eat the creations of other chefs. I love all spectrums of good food. From a 3 Michelin starred, World Top 50 restaurant to a taco stand in Mexico City. Travel and dinning go hand in hand and I have always traveled to eat.

I'm talking about lounges with full restaurants, bars and spas, and more. For my return to JFK from Barcelona I purposefully scheduled a 5.5 hour layover in London... Continue Reading →
These past few days I went to Barcelona to visit a few schools. Well honestly I also went becasue it was an excuse to hop on a plane. Anyway I decided to book a roundtrip flight to London from New York with AAdvantage miles and then pay cash for a roundtrip flight from London to... Continue Reading →
Ever since staying at the St Regis in Florence I was hooked. I currently stay in NYC fairly often, at least once a month, and usually book a cheap SPG hotel like a 4 Points by Sheraton. This time, however, I log on and check prices for this past Friday night and find that since... Continue Reading →
Paul Bocuse has done more for the evolution of French Cuisine than any other living person. Now considered classic food Paul Bocuse was actually the pioneer of the Nouvelle Cuisine, the new cuisine. The term was coined by Henri Gault, one of the critics who started the prestigious Gault Millau guide, describing food that Bocuse was making.
