By: Michael J Wilson
Alice B Toklas, partner of author Gertrude Stein, was mostly fame-adjacent. She would find a sort of prominence as the lens through which Stein wrote in the book The Autobiography of Alice B Toklas.

By: Michael J Wilson
In many cities, coffee shops tend to stick to the liquid realm, often venturing only as far as bagels, cookies and muffins.

<![CDATA[A World Without Coffee - Attempting the impossible]]>
By: Michael J Wilson
If you’re like me, you drink your weight in coffee on any given day. So, like me, you probably also spend a lot of time scouring the internet for news on coffee production and the impact of climate change on that production. Right?

By: Michael J Wilson
Santa Fe's food trucks mostly stay in one spot; many might as well not have wheels. ]]>
<![CDATA[Milad Persian Bistro - Kabob all day every day, except Monday]]>
By: Michael J Wilson
Late-night eating in Santa Fe is pretty skimpy on choices. It’s just one of those accepted things: You eat before 9 pm, you finish your drinks by 10 pm.

<![CDATA[Summer Pudding: Had Me a Blast - It’s just fruit and white bread—seriously]]>
By: Michael J Wilson
British food is incredibly creative in the most oddly boring way imaginable. Mainly consisting of things stuffed into other things and then boiled, it heavily relies on meat, more meat, some potatoes and then, often, the blood from the meat.

<![CDATA[Pommes Anna - Draw me like one of your French girls]]>
By: Michael J Wilson
French cuisine is often called difficult, but it isn’t, really. Fairly minimalist in nature, it relies on rich flavors. A better word might be “fussy.” It relies on immaculate, perfect execution.

By: Michael J Wilson
I’m always amazed when I hear about people going downtown for breakfast regularly. First, it’s not cheap; restaurants downtown have downtown prices.

<![CDATA[Not That Trinity… - … but still explosive]]>
By: Michael J Wilson
Meow Wolf is settling into its second year by quietly expanding its reach. On May 26, they unveiled their latest endeavor: Trinity Kitchen. But it isn’t a new room in the house within their exhibit—it’s a food truck in the parking lot.

By: Michael J Wilson
Over the last year, something quietly took shape in the empty storefront between The Betterday coffee shop and La Montañita Co-op at the Solana Center on West Alameda Street.

<![CDATA[Switchel It Up - Food fads come and go, but at least this one tastes good]]>
By: Michael J Wilson
Health fads are annoying. Most of them are silly and have very little basis in reality. And they don’t even taste good most of the time. Kale is gross, everyone. Seriously. Just stop. Even chef Martín Rios of Restaurant Martín thinks so.

On May 1, the James Beard Foundation met in Chicago to hand out its annual awards. Hosted by actor and Albuquerque native Jesse Tyler Ferguson (of Modern Family), the awards are to American food what the Oscars are to film.

<![CDATA[Down-Home Cooking - Just like your Cuban grandma made]]>
By: Michael J Wilson
When I lived in New York, there was this small hole-in-the-wall Cuban restaurant in Brooklyn I’d frequent.]]>
<![CDATA[The F in Fundación - Tacos, tacos everywhere ...]]>
By: Michael J Wilson
Almost Exactly two years ago—you’d be forgiven if you can’t recall the pre-2016 election years at this point, since garbage fires tend to envelop everything in smoke—Bert’s Burger Bowl closed after 61 years, and Santa Fe mourned.

By: Michael J Wilson
When I was in college I spent a few weekends at local nonprofit Kitchen Angels as part of the College of Santa Fe’s volunteering outreach.

By: Michael J Wilson
There are certain times of the year that many American families have “traditional” meals.]]>
<![CDATA[Today and Tomorrow - Pie Quest 2017 Update]]>
By: Michael J Wilson
The odd little space between Pink Adobe and Rio Chama has housed a number of different businesses over the years. I worked there 14 years ago when it was Café Pink, the Adobe’s failed attempt at a coffee shop.

<![CDATA[Both Sides - Dueling locations in a city of 70K]]>
By: Michael J Wilson
I recently had a long conversation with a visitor from Denver about how Santa Fe has a north/south divide. For us, this isn’t shocking or new to say.

<![CDATA[+5 Taco of Mighty Nourishment - You come into a room, there’s food on a table, what do you do?]]>
By: Michael J Wilson
Dinner parties. Do you fill with fear at the idea? I love them, but I hate preparing for them.]]>
<![CDATA[Where Everybody Knows Your Name - Some basketball team lost and all I got was this amazing red chile]]>
By: Michael J Wilson
You know those days when nothing feels quite right? Saturday was one of those for me. I’ve been working a ton and not taking the time to de-stress properly and, outside a spa weekend, there are few ways out of those days.
