Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well With 1990Future’s New EP?

Today is the day that indie alt-rock group 1990future rolls out their new EP, Roll On, to the masses. If you happen to reside in Toronto, you can catch the EP release show at the Soundtrack of the City Festival at the Hideout.

Food Pairing 101: What Goes With Bailey’s Brunch at Carmel Kitchen?

Is it any wonder that Carmel Kitchen is rolling out their new Bailey’s Brunch menu in South Tampa? After all, South Tampa is to brunch as Paris is to lovers.

Cook: Cutlets, Collards, Buffalo Aioli Sandwich

“The problem with seitan, is its full of wheat. If you can’t get it out, let’s breed it out.” -Tender Branson, 2011 So that’s me quoting me paraphrasing King Longshanks (in Braveheart) most likely butchering some Atila the Hun call to arms from the 451 (year, not zip code). I’d imagine that from the time it was fired off by synapses to the time it crossed my lips hundreds […]

Where We Eat: Give & Grub Food Truck

Everyone knows that the more people that get involved in something, the more likely it is to be ruined. There’s even an ancient proverb that speaks directly to keeping collaborations to a minimum: “too many cooks spoil the broth”. I think it is time to mark that proverb with a big ol’ asterisk, one that is footnoted at the bottom with the words “the exception to this proverb is Tampa’s Give & Grub […]

What’s Cooking With Guards! Guards!
