Chez Albert

Sadly, Chez Albert in Amherst closed its doors May 25, 2018. It was extraordinary, one of our favorites, and dearly missed.

Blackberry Bourbon Fizz

Insofar as possible, I like to take advantage of what the earth is offering. In California, in midsummer, it offers blackberries. Our old backyard is covered in them: nasty thorny invasive weedy Himalayan blackberries. As much as I hate the plant, the fruit makes a hell of a good cocktail.

Bread Euphoria

For dining in, the best pizza in the 5-college area. We keep trying other local options and after a half dozen plus Bread Euphoria remains firmly at the top.
