Daily Candy: Prep School

I pitched this piece on Beehive Kitchenware ages ago and I'm glad DC picked it up. Everything is so tactile, and I love the chiaroscuro of the chased metal. I'm extremely partial to the lemon reamer, which looks as if it could double as a weapon.

Daily Candy: Training Run

Usually we hit up Bacchanalia or one of the other superb restaurants in town for our anniversary, but this year my husband and I went to Lumiere, the training restaurant of the Cordon Bleu cooking school here in Atlanta.

Daily Candy: What a Catch

Brodie Lang is an amazing transplant -- she hails from Alaska, where she grew up helping her dad haul in the catch. Somehow she made it to this corner of the country, but as they say, you can take the girl out of Alaska, but you can't take the Alaska out of the girl. She's now selling fish to the best of the best in town, and now home cooks can get in on the act. Read my short about her Catch Packs in Daily Candy.
