Publisher's Letter: Wine, Lisa Vanderpump And Culinary Indulgences
One of my favorite guilty pleasures is wine, and it was flowing in grand style at Boca Center’s Total Wine and More when reality star and vino maven Lisa Vanderpump hosted a Vanderpump Rosé tasting and bottle signing. I had the pleasure of spending some time with her, her husband, Ken, and their precious pup, Giggy! Boca Center was abuzz with excitement as boutiques and storefronts transformed into “Windows from Around the World” with each participating retailer featuring a unique theme of international flavors and fashion to showcase their newly transformed boutiques.
We all have to eat—some of us just enjoy it more than others. I happen to have an abundance of favorite spots to meet up with friends throughout Boca and Delray for my coveted culinary indulgences. Check out the newest food trends around town and see what gets your mouth watering.
With my hectic schedule, I usually dine out for almost every meal. From a casual bagel and coffee, to a sizzling steak with all the sumptuous sides, I know where to go to satisfy my every craving. It is especially nice when I occasionally retreat to my fridge at home and find the perfect ingredients to make a home-cooked meal. Take a look at 10 South Florida chefs who invited us into their own kitchens to talk about how they cook for themselves, the must-have ingredient in their fridges and more. Now, if only they made house calls...
In almost every fridge you will likely find a carton or two of orange juice, most of it produced right here in the Sunshine State. In the face of land loss to development, a citrus greening disease, damage from hurricanes and the rise of Brazil as a citrus giant, can our state’s $10 billion citrus industry survive? We look at the future of the industry.
Wishing you foodies all things delicious, and the best of the Boca Life.
Enjoy your April, no fooling!
