In Season!

If you are anywhere in the Pacific Northwest area right now, stop everything and head to your nearest fish monger because I’ve got tonight’s dinner menu planned for you. Copper River Sockeye is in season for just a few weeks a year and if you haven’t tried it before, you’ll thank me. And if you have, then you know what I’m talking about and you’ve already had some.

Don’t forget to watch our one hour special this Sunday, January 19th on W Network! It’s called “Anna & Kristina: COOKED”.

Decoding the Wine List

A lot of people get flummoxed by a wine list. Getting stuck with choosing the wine at a restaurant when you’re no expert can be stressful, especially when you’re trying to impress or just don’t want to disappoint.
