POSTED // Feb 25,2014 - For the past few years, I’ve noticed that more and more restaurant menus are littered with terms like “homemade,” “housemade” and “from scratch.” You’ve probably seen the same. More often than not, these wholesome-sounding descriptions are accompanied by the adjectives “artisan,” “local” or “craft.”

POSTED // Feb 24,2014 - When Art Finkelstein passed away all too young in 2010, the wine world lost one of its most beloved and innovative characters. Art was a man of many talents: architect, maker of ceramics, musician, chef and, yes, winemaker. His winemaking career began at home. Most people have cars in their garages; Art’s son Judd, for whom Judd’s Hill winery is named, says that he grew up with winemaking equipment in his.

Craft burgers, schnitzel, Raclette and more at Deer Valley eateries

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Feb 18,2014 - Where upscale dining is concerned, Deer Valley boasts an embarrassment of riches, with venues such as The Glitretind, Royal Street Cafe, Cena, Apex, Seafood Buffet, The Mariposa and others. This ski season, I’ve visited three of Deer Valley’s best dining destinations: one old, one new and one somewhere in-between.

Gourmandise The Bakery

SLC's Gourmandise offers much more than baked goods

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Feb 10,2014 - The admonishment to “stop and smell the roses” may be a well-worn cliché, but it’s also often worthy advice. Maybe “stop and smell the baked goods” is better advice, especially when you’re in the vicinity of Gourmandise The Bakery.

Here are some of my favorites.
