Angostura Soda (recipe & video)

Angostura Soda (recipe & video)
I love vintage cocktail recipes, which is why I am a huge fan of the Angostura Bitters Drink Guide 1908 Reprint: A Little Tiny Bar Book Made Big. Having the “Sweet Han'” web series has given me added incentive not only to visit these 19th century concoctions, but also to update them. Case in point this recipe called Angostura Soda which I made for Episode 14 of “Sweet Han': Caribbean...

REVIEW: Ramsay's Best Menus
Over the last 6 months or so my mother and I have both become quite taken with British Chef Gordon Ramsay. It seems that he has a permanent Monday night residency on FOX and I for one am -not- complaining (don’t judge me! :)) Realizing that if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em, J has surprised me with not one, but two, of Ramsay’s publications!

REVIEW: Caribbean Seafood Extravaganza

REVIEW: Caribbean Seafood Extravaganza
Caribbean Seafood Extravaganza, a local publication from the Seafood Industry Development Company Limited, has become a silent treasure over the last year.
