In Memoriam: Nelson Carey, Grand Cru Owner and Friend to Many

I’ve been having a hard time writing this post. It’s not a eulogy. It’s not an obituary. Fred Rasmussen has written a quite lovely one. Have you read it? Here you go.  Nelson Carey, Grand Cru wine bar owner, dies at 50.

This is just a thank you.

Many considered Nelson a friend, mentor and touchstone and for me he was a little bit of all of those things. I’ve worked at Friends School for about 13 years, so over the years, I’ve visited Grand Cru it feels like hundreds of times after school. I always thought that Nelson was super smart having his bar open before 5:00pm… as a person working in education, I can tell you that many friends of mine who are teachers could use a cocktail around 3:30pm.

Local Vendors on Display at Union Graze Happy Hour

0 Written by: | Thursday, Jul 24, 2014 2:05pm

10409331_530176540428151_6816438784504047764_n This is one fun little party. The best of both worlds: a super low-key, family-friendly happy hour held every other Friday behind Artifact Coffee in Hampden/Woodberry.

Each week local vendors — some just starting out, others are more experienced — gather in the courtyard behind Union Mill. Last year, it was held every Friday and had a farmers market/CSA component. This year, it’s mainly local food and beverage producers selling their wares. You can also enjoy adult beverages. The event runs from 5:00-8:00pm (thus, the happy hour aspect.)

This week’s musical entertainment will be provided by Brad Kolodner and Luke Chohany playing, Appalachian Old-Time music.

Food, brews and killer views

In only really two major food and beverage categories am I a snob of sorts: beer and pizza. (Hello, Hersh’s Pizza…)

On the beer front, I just feel like there are so many local craft brew choices around here, why on earth would you drink the same thing every time you head for the fridge? I always have a mixed bag of beers on hand. Right now, I’ve got about 10 different beers crammed in my little fridge. They include a few from Frederick’s Flying Dog brewery – Dead Rise Old Bay Summer Ale, Bloodline Blood Orange IPA and Easy IPA. All delicious! Thank you to my friends at The Wine Source  for always recommending great stuff (and selling all of the amazing cheese!) Read More →

The Best Barbecue Restaurant in the Country is in… Annapolis?!

slide_358722_3988116_free

There are many places in the United States that can ostensibly claim to have the best barbecue. Do you like it saucy? Go to North Carolina. More of a brisket guy? Texas is your place. But I seriously doubt that when I say “great barbecue town,” Annapolis would be on the tip of your tongue. It certainly wasn’t one of America’s ten best cities for barbecue, as listed by the Huffington Post. Or Food & Wine. Or U.S. News.

Where Will You Go For Restaurant Week?

restaurant-week-price-dates

Restaurant Week is lots of fun. Tons of great restaurants participate, offering three-course meals for dinner…and some at lunch, too. Many restaurant week diners try to go to restaurants they either could not usually afford, or have been meaning to get to, and  others go to old favorites to see what the chef decides to feature. I tend to go with the former. I can go to my favorites anytime. Read More →

Makin’ Bacon

1 Written by: | Friday, Jul 18, 2014 2:05pm

I’m completely fascinated by chefs who cook nose-to-tail style – using every part of the animal – like kidneys, brain, feet and more. One of the most front-and-center of these chefs is Chris Cosentino. Often at his restaurant Incanto in San Francisco, he’ll offer a plate called “Odds and Ends,” amazing dishes made out of what many chefs toss. Some say gnarly, I say try it!

If you’re an Instagram user, follow Chris – he’s fun. He also founded the artisan salumi company, Boccalone, and they make the most amazing salami and other tasty salted pig parts. I love the orange and fennel. The head salume (the guy who actually makes all of this art), Stephen Pocock, is a Baltimorean and a very cool guy. He also runs his own business called Damn Fine Bacon, which keeps Bay Area bacon enthusiasts quite happy.
