Where do I even begin with such an amazing event?  I will keep this short and sweet and to what was most important.  I’m truly honored to have been a part of this event. The Great Chefs event is to help stop childhood cancer; hosted by Alex’s Lemonade and Vetri Foundation.  I think the highlight of this…

Tria Cafe Review

One of my favorite spots to dine and unwind in Philly is Tria Cafe.  I had the pleasure of meeting the owner and some of the staff, and they couldn’t be a more accomodating, wonderful and extremely knowledgeable group of people.  Sitting down the other night, I chose a few dishes and drinks to try. …

Las Rocas Spanish Red Blend 2009

I really enjoy going out wine tasting or to wine bars, but there is nothing like being in the comfort of your own home and wearing what you like.  All this while enjoying the music you like with a nice glass of wine.  Last night I enjoyed a red robust wine.  It was called Las Rocas…

2009 Vinha do Monte

I will never forget what a wine expert told me once.  “You don’t need to have an expensive bottle of wine to have the best wine.”  A lot of people over look cheaper bottles of wine because they think they will taste bad.  But this not true.  You will be surprised at what you can find for…

Pepperwood Grove Pinot Noir

I picked up a bottle of Pepperwood Grove Pinot Noir the other day and for the price of 8.99 it was a great find.  The flavors and aromas of Vanilla, Black cherry, Spicy Oak and Plum are a great combanation.  Its smooth, light and lively to the palate.  Great with some bruschetta or a cheese platter and…
