Good Reads

Some solid wine tips from a great sommelier.

I’ve enjoyed learning more about Olafur Eliasson since visiting Reykjavik’s Harpa Concert Hall in October. This feature about the man and his work is totally fascinating.

Seeing Daniel Humm lecture to a room of 30 at George Brown College in 2010 remains one of the highlights of my food memory and what prompted my many travels to Eleven Madison Park. I would have loved to see him lecture at Harvard.
