I love to bring back tokens with me whenever I travel. Buying artisanal gifts help you remember all the different cultures you encounter when you travel as well as make for unique gifts for friends that can’t be found anywhere else.

I just got back from Sweden and I brought back a few gifts for our Rooster Wall. Stop by and see if you can find them on our wall. Here’s what I brought back with me this time… Read More

Have you wondered what food your favorite musician just can’t live without? Is it just me or have you also seriously stopped to think at times, “What is Beyonce eating right now?” Just because musicians may be megastars doesn’t mean they don’t like certain foods as much as we do, too. Of course, their workout regimens may definitely be different to ours, but that’s beside the point.

Well in case you too have wondered what the big music stars are eating these days, to commemorate the Grammy’s this Sunday here is a look at the diversity of dishes artists love from around America. Read More

I just got back this week from a weekend trip to Los Angeles and I can shamelessly say that I had a great time there! The relationship New York City has with Los Angeles is certainly a strange one. It’s similar to what I experienced growing up in Sweden. As a resident of Gothenburg, you could never publically admit that you liked anything about Stockholm, as if almost rival cities. Often times, that’s the same sort of relationship between LA and NYC.

But the more I visit LA I have really started to appreciate the differences between the two cities. Read More

With everything from a visit from kids from the Children’s Storefront to cooking on ABC’s The Chew, I’ve had such an amazing week so far and I just had to share with you my current five favorites.

My #1 favorite this week has got to be the gift I received from the Harlem’s Children’s Storefront! Miss Larson’s 3rd grade class from the Storefront stopped by for an art tour of Philip Maysle’s collection hanging at Red Rooster and a cooking demo. The kids were so grateful to be invited that they brought me some freshly picked green beans from their garden. It was a great gift and to show my appreciation, I pickled the green beans and are now up on display at Red Rooster. Read More
