Foodidude's Kitchen ~ Len Boccassini aka "Foodidude"
When I'm not writing about restaurant lore, food travels, history or interviewing a chef or restaurateur for another Foodidude Exclusive™, I can usually be found in the kitchen whipping something up. These are some of my favorites.
Karen's Kucina ~ Karen Romanelli
Karen's appreciation of both flavor development and lavish preparation can be traced to her Italian heritage. She takes enormous pride in the creation of delicious meals, and the meticulous love and care she puts into every dish is reflective of the kitchen values passed down to her from her mother, grandmother and aunts. From simple meals to authentically prepared Italian favorites, Karen is proud to open her kitchen and share her favorite recipes with you.
Lean & Clean Eating with Jess ~ Jessica Troncillito
Jess grew up in a typical Sicilian family where the dinner table played a significant role in everyday life. Although her love and appreciation of good food never waned, her enthusiasm for the benefits of lean, clean meals toward a healthy lifestyle took center stage with her family's eating habits. Here, Jess sheds some light on the mystery of combining delicious food with a healthy outlook on weight loss and nutrition. In her words, "lean and clean eating doesn't have to mean flavorless, dry or lifeless. Rather, it simply means more natural, unprocessed and easily digestible."
Liv On Cake ~ Olivia Hall
Liv is a 25-year old baker, dancer, yogi and animal lover who created Liv On Cake after teaching herself various baking skills and accumulating inspiration and motivation from my friends and family. Working out of a little red rooster-themed kitchen at home, Liv creates big flavors and designs for those who could never imagine skipping dessert. Her goal is to produce edible pieces of art that look too good to eat, but are surprisingly comforting and exciting with every bite. On her blog, she hopes to share her best work with you and pass along a few tips and tricks, and perhaps, throw in a couple of mantras for those not-so-sweet days!
Foodidude Adventures ~ Len Boccassini
My adventures in food; here and abroad. Whether it's tasting iguana in the Caribbean or pig snouts in New York's Chinatown, here's where I put pen to pad on all that goes on between my ears and into my mouth.
