Christine Najac’s Food Lover’s Guide to Miami and Fort Lauderdale for the Best Restaurants, Markets & Local Culinary Offerings.

Congratulations to Christine Najac, South Florida Food and Wine for publishing this compendium for food lovers!  Please come out for her wonderful talk and book signing, details here.  Sorry for the late announcement, you’ll want to know all the BEST tips! If you cannot make it tomorrow, you can order here.

(Uh, you may have read this before when I posted for Gables event!) Oh boy, I had no idea Christine had included my Wok Star cooking class in her book, thank you! I first met Christine at a foodie gathering at Hakkasan and immediately liked her especially when she squealed with delight when she won a gift certificate to my class.  We bump into each other at food gatherings and I love hanging out with her, she’s so much fun.  See you there tomorrow.

Thrilled to write three food reviews for ViVa Magazine’s February issue showcasing South Florida!  Doubly thrilled I’m in the issue with Tommy Lee’s cover! Uh, not that I even know his music but it’s cool, right? Physical magazine is winging it’s way over and ViVa magazine is relaunching their new website any day this week.  My full review and lots more shots will be online, here’s a sneak preview.  Go check it out to see who’s featured (page 73)and leave a comment below what you think!


So excited to be invited on!   I LOVE their cool website and what they’re doing.
We shoot my episode, Feb. 19 at Pepe Calderin’s design showroom, thanks for hosting us. Gio, the executive producer and Lauren, the show host came to my class and actually have my Wok Star Kit!
Both foodies, they started “a weekly mouth-watering video podcast where we go behind the scenes with chefs, owners and mixologist in the food industry”



Honored to be the first interview on Foodiechats Facebook page! Started by Steve Green, a social media guru I met at a Common Threads event a few years ago! Just shows you never know the folks you meet and how things happen!  So, keep your umbrella open for new things to happen in your life!  You can catch the complete interview here

Free Wok Star demonstration with festival admission

I love this festival (check event guide), folks are so attentive and great to interact with. Sadly, the director of this culinary festival, Gary Cuica passed away suddenly last year. My demo will be a tribute to him.  I was always so honored he included me in his roster as I’m the only one who is not a chef or own a restaurant! He was a Johnson & Wales culinary graduate himself and a huge foodie. I miss his friendship, he was always so supportive and would suggest ways to increase my business. Come and see me as well as many other wonderful chefs and talks. Quick mention to Chef Hugh of Irie Spice who I became friends with at this festival, definitely check out his delish Caribbean food. An honor to be featured photo for the Culinary Arts page on their website!
