Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

One week from today Austin’s Project Transitions, a non-profit dedicated to helping those living with HIV and AIDS, will host its annual “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” fundraiser. If you are available next Saturday, Feb. 2, I highly recommend that you make a reservation.
Last year, I was invited to cover the event on my blog, and I decided that it would make more sense to wait and post about my experience until tickets went on sale for this year’s event. Of course, life got busy and now I’m just telling …

Le Castelas: Provence Lunch of a Lifetime

I hope you will forgive me for posting about a meal I had a year and a half ago. It’s one of the dining experiences that you should have before you die if at all possible (especially if you are ever in the Luberon, in France).
On our trip to Provence, two of the best meals we had took place at the end of the trip, and each location was remote, so our day was basically spent driving to lunch and then to wherever we were going to sleep that night. …
