Hamming It Up at Cochon555 Atlanta

Scenes from Sunday’s awesome Cochon555 event at the Ritz Carlton in Buckhead.

Cochon555 is “the epic culinary tasting and friendly competition for a cause featuring 5 top chefs (and their farm-raised pigs), 5 barkeeps, 5 sommeliers, and more!

Full disclosure, it was impossible to take good photos while trying to take in everything as there was SO much to take in so I apologize in advance. This is why I need my own personal cameraman!  Continue reading “Hamming It Up at Cochon555 Atlanta”

GPB Gives Us “A Seat at the Table” and It’s About Time!

Last week, I had the pleasure of going behind the scenes of the new Georgia Public Broadcasting talk show “A Seat at the Table.” This is a phenomenal show! I may be slightly biased because my dear friend and sister of the pen Denene Millner is one of the hosts, but it truly is what we have been missing in the media. Strong black female voices telling our stories AND your stories from our perspective. This is not “The View” or “The Real” or anything close. This is DIFFERENT! This is BETTER!

The Bodyguard: A Movie-to-Musical Masterpiece

I must admit, my expectations for this production were extremely low. Plus most people know that I am a self-proclaimed “Broadway Snob.”

After the torturous debacle known as Ghost-The Musical, my faith in successful adaptations of movies-to-musicals was pretty much obliterated. I made a sweeping generalization that going forward, it’s just a bad idea… and people should just stop doing it.

My Foodie Photo Featured on Cobb Travel and Tourism

My latest foodie photo of my “South of the Border” bowl at Taqueria Tsunami is featured on Cobb Travel and Tourism’s website.  Cobb County, Georgia (where I happen to live) is considered “Atlanta’s Sweet Spot” and CTT has a page devoted to showcasing their picks of the best resident and visitor photos of all of the awesomeness this area has to offer.  I was so surprised and honored to be featured.  And, of course, I told them “There’s more where that came from!”

Taqueria Tsunami is an Asian-Latin fusion restaurant in Marietta Square.  It’s not just the yummy hybrid morsels that keep me coming back… it’s the atmosphere.  Right at the center of the square, overlooking the main courtyard.  The food is light and fresh… perfect for sitting outside and taking in whatever live “happenings” that maybe carrying on around you while you eat.
