Switchel It Up

Food fads come and go, but at least this one tastes good

Food Writing Health fads are annoying. Most of them are silly and have very little basis in reality. And they don’t even taste good most of the time. Kale is gross, everyone. Seriously. Just stop. Even chef Martín Rios of Restaurant Martín thinks so.

Martín Rios Doesn’t Like Kale

But he is literally one of the region’s best chefs

Food Writing On May 1, the James Beard Foundation met in Chicago to hand out its annual awards. Hosted by actor and Albuquerque native Jesse Tyler Ferguson (of Modern Family), the awards are to American food what the Oscars are to film.

The F in Fundación

Tacos, tacos everywhere ...

Food Writing Almost Exactly two years ago—you’d be forgiven if you can’t recall the pre-2016 election years at this point, since garbage fires tend to envelop everything in smoke—Bert’s Burger Bowl closed after 61 years, and Santa Fe mourned.

What I talk about when I talk about sustainability

Food Writing More and more of my customers are asking about organic wines, and I’m delighted to have a dialogue about them. Some are suspicious. Is it a trendy marketing gimmick or a demonstrably better way to make wine?

Here Comes Easter

Must be jelly, ’cause jam don’t shake

Food Writing There are certain times of the year that many American families have “traditional” meals.

Pie Quest 2017 Update

Food Writing The odd little space between Pink Adobe and Rio Chama has housed a number of different businesses over the years. I worked there 14 years ago when it was Café Pink, the Adobe’s failed attempt at a coffee shop.

Both Sides

Dueling locations in a city of 70K

Food Writing I recently had a long conversation with a visitor from Denver about how Santa Fe has a north/south divide. For us, this isn’t shocking or new to say.

Toast “Gung Hey Fat Choy” with Baijiu

Kiss My Glass Every few years, a new product explodes upon the global mixology scene, and bar folks’ ears perk up. A new toy! A few years back, genever, the Dutch predecessor to today’s gin, became the darling of the industry with its unique, malty flavor.

Super Sudsy Beer Drinks

Kiss My Glass For some, winter sports means whooshing down a powdery mountain, leaving a feathery flurry of snow fluttering behind, tickling the whiskers of El Niño as he visits our neck of the woods.
