Last year, I lived in Rome from August to December. Dropped into a world of strictly-seasonal cuisine, I was lucky; I got the best of the summer, fall, and (very mild) winter. I got fat, juicy tomatoes. I got earthy porcini. I got sharp, biting puntarelle, dressed with anchovy and olive oil.
But I'm greedy.
I want meaty carciofi (artichokes), tender peas, perfect squash blossoms: produce that Roman cuisine celebrates in the springtime. I want a glass of Frascati; I want a view of the Tiber. But since I'm now back in America, I'm cooking these Roman dishes until spring turns into summer. I'm making my own Roman spring -- and you can, too.Read More »

Have you checked out our Kickstarter curated page? For the uninitiated: Kickstarter is an easy way for creative projects to get funding through small donations from a large number of people -- and each donation comes with fantastic rewards set by the project's owners. We have two fantastic projects for you today -- consider supporting them!
The first is Birds, bars & boxes...in artisan chocolate from Robyn Dochterman of St. Croix, Wisconsin. Her chocolate shop, the St. Croix Chocolate Company, is commissioning beautiful chocolate molds from artist Laura McCaul. The three-dimensional chocolate art, made with organic TCHO chocolate from San Francisco, will be packaged in gorgeous handmade boxes that can be reused to package gifts or store jewelry. The company's committment to fair trade, supporting local agriculture (their cream and milk come from a farm just 10 miles away from the shop!), and seasonal ingredients is inspiriing.
Next up we have This Must Be the Place, an art space in Brooklyn located above the restaurant Marlow and Sons. Run by the same crowd who run Diner Journal, the project aims to better equip their event space to host classes, art exhibits, performances, dancing, eating, drinking, artist residencies, and more.
