Eclectic breakfast and lunch on a quiet Downtown corner
Café Lush is like a daydream of the way things might be in some future hybrid of Europe and Albuquerque. It’s an urban café on a quiet street corner, with a small menu of simple yet well-crafted dishes and a pledge to use local, seasonal and organic ingredients whenever possible. But unlike in Europe, the red and green chile won’t disappoint—unless you’re a member of the New Mexico anticumin coalition.
Holiday snacking with a local twist
I make spicy sugared nuts at the holidays in volumes—six to eight pounds at a time—to share with friends during the holidays. Here’s my recipe. It’s very easy, and (if you don’t eat them all first) the leftover pieces are great on salads.
Wine and French Night
Casual French study, wine, cheese, culture, song and conversation with Maryse Lapierre.
Barrel Aged Beer and Cheese
Four barrel aged beers from Marble paired with four gourmet kinds of cheese, hand-picked by Whole Foods.
