Yes, you read correctly. Jesse and I visited the International Banana Museum. After spending years traveling with his 8' stuffed banana, rightfully named Banana (it's a She), we felt it only necessary to stop by the International Banana Museum on our trip through the Salton Sea.

I had the pleasure of working under an amazing Superfood Chef in Hollywood last year who opened my eyes to the world of superfoods. Superfoods are nutrient rich foods packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. Incorporating these into your diet is said to help prevent some disease and aid in overall health. My favorite of these is the acai berry, a powerful antioxidant from South America.

In chatting with some industry friends the other day, they told me about this popular drink on the slopes of Aspen, which I have unfortunately never had the pleasure of visiting. In the spirit of Winter arriving in Chicago, I am please to share with you a hot cocktail recipe sure to warm you up this season, known as the Purple Haze!
3 oz warm sake (we used TY KU Junmai Ginjo "black")
1/2 oz Chambord Raspberry Liqueur
Fill a low glass with the warmed sake and top with the 1/2 oz of Chambord. Enjoy responsibly!
The other day I was on a mission to make Jamaican Jerk Chicken wraps with a mango salsa for my roommates. The store made mango salsa I usually purchase for this was out of stock, so I had to improvise. Using various recipes I found online, I adapted these to create my own delicious concoction for the wraps. Find below my version of a mango salsa, and feel free to adapt to be your own! Please note, the measurements are approximate, so you may need adjust accordingly.
