Last month I spent a couple of weeks in the Bay Area for work, mostly to shoot my next cookbook with the very awesome photographer Ed Anderson and the super incredible food stylist George Dolese.

Where to Eat and Shop in Rome’s Esquilino District

The highly anticipated Mercato Centrale food hall (above) opened on a sketchy stretch of Via Giolitti on the southern side of Rome's Stazione Termini yesterday. The location, detached from the station's tracks and main concourse, will likely be the biggest obstacle the market faces. Termini is a real nightmare and no sane person enjoys sticking [...]
