Laima Candy | Latvia’s #1 Sweets Since 1870

Riga, Latvia- It is not a secret that I always gravitate towards food or an eating establishment with history. It could be the oldest restaurant, the oldest bar, or in this case- the oldest candy company. Laima Confections is based out of Riga, Latvia and became one of the largest candy manufacturers in the Baltic… Continue reading Laima Candy | Latvia’s #1 Sweets Since 1870

The Swanky STK Steakhouse | Las Vegas, Nevada

STK inside the Cosmopolitan is a swanky on The Strip steakhouse, with a club like vibe to it. One would think that the draw into STK would be that party feel with a live DJ in the house, but the food and cocktails are just as big of a draw. We had come in for… Continue reading The Swanky STK Steakhouse | Las Vegas, Nevada

What I ate in ICELAND – A Food Journal

Eating in Iceland was not as exploratory as it could have gone since I draw the line on certain meats. I will not eat a puffin or horse meat, which is normally consumed in Iceland. It is their customs and I am okay with that, it's just not my bag. Now I did try wild… Continue reading What I ate in ICELAND – A Food Journal

What I ate in SCOTLAND – A Food Journal

As part of any traveling experience, discovering a region's food and drink scene are important to understanding a culture.
