Food is a Journey

Dining at Siete Fuegos last night was a beautiful experience for many reasons. Almost least of which was the food... A 90 minute drive from our home meant we had to be serious about it from the start. Our driver Fernando was the perfect person to share stories of the wineries, industry, people and landscape of Mendoza. He’s grown up here and has spent 20 years touring visitors around the area. The drive itself revealed the balance of the region. The dry and arid scrub brush next to the lush vineyards. The streets lined with 50 foot tall maple trees that seem to have [...]

Markets, Butchers and a Viking Chef

After a few unsuccessful searches for a decent market in Buenos Aires, I made it a priority to seek one out in Córdoba early in the month. With two markets near the neighborhood I am staying in I chose a bit longer walk to the larger one. Along the 20 blocks or so my mind was filled with visions of fresh vegetables piled high, tiny restaurants bustling with guests and butchers hawking their goods as you walk past the case. Surrounding the building itself are carnicerías, verdulerías and misc. shops with all sorts of housewares and knick knacks. All similar for the most part. [...]

Fort Klamath Ranch Event Case Study

When we started working with Fort Klamath Ranch this year, they were just in their infancy and hadn’t put much out in Reno. In January, we wanted to get the ball rolling with people talking and some online chatter. The best way to sell food is always to get people tasting it, so we created a tasting event to invite both the public and the industry together and cook up some amazing Wagyu Beef. Combining a public tasting with industry and media invites meant that the guests gave validation to the chefs and journalists right away, which would help us make headway into sales [...]

A Chef Let Loose in Buenos Aires

I came to Buenos Aires expecting every street corner to have a lamb leaning over a fire and a gaucho sipping mate. Silly me… ignoring the fact that it was the capital city and full of 12+ million people! Instead, I found what you see in many capital cities- bars and restaurants on every corner, museums you could spend a whole day in, more public art than you could explore in a year and people moving in every direction at every hour of the day. In hindsight, I stayed close to the apartment for too long. We were stationed right in the heart of Palermo [...]

Building a community

"A community is a group of people who agree to grow together." – Simon Sinek Tucked away in a hot kitchen with sweat rolling down your temples, the printer ticks away and orders roll up onto the floor, it’s easy to disregard everything past the bin at the end of the line. In fact it’s probably been hours since you’ve had a regular conversation with a human other than “hot, behind”, “walking in...” and “let’s sell tables 42 and 76”. Though, outside of your safety zone, lies a whole host of people waiting patiently to have a conversation with you through your food. [...]
