Muffaletta Sandwich Review

Originated by immigrants in New Orleans, the muffaletta is a large sandwich on a round loaf, with salami, mortadella, ham, mozzarella, and olive salad. Tho the recipe for the ‘salad’ can vary, it is generally made up of diced olives, celery, cauliflower, carrots, oregano and garlic, marinaded in olive oil. It was designed to be […]

Gloriosos Italian Market Review – Milwaukee, WI

Seventy-year-old Glorioso’s in Milwaukee is one of several fine Italian deli/groceries the city has to offer. If it’s even remotely Italian, Glorioso’s has it on the shelf, in the counter or in the cooler. It’s a wonderland for foodies and cooks alike.  Naturally, I stocked up.  Sausages. Cheese. A muffaletta sandwich. So let’s talk about that.  […]

Fiorellas Cafe Review – New Orleans, LA

Once upon a time there was a good and decent family that owned and operated a local favorite restaurant near the French Market for many, many years, until finally the time came for them to take it easy and they sold the establishment. But like many people who create something with passion for a living, […]

Mardi Gras 2018 New Orleans in Poem

(From my archives) I had never been to a Mardi Gras celebration until I moved to New Orleans. What I learned living there, is that  for the locals, it’s a great opportunity for family activities, far away from the tourism debauchery in the Quarter.  I was  ‘inspired’ one year to write this Mardi Gras poem, […]

Primanti Brothers Sandwich Review

There is a raft of places in the world where enterprising folks have created what I call a “one-handed meal.” Designed originally for the working class, shift workers, these foodstuffs were especially well adapted to heavy industry factory workers, miners and the like. In Cornwall, England, it was the “pasty,” a baked meat and vegetable […]

Tenutas Deli Review, Kenosha, WI

I’ve been in a lot of great Italian “delis” all over the world. Two of my favorites (until this week) are Martinotti’s in Portland, OR, and Bay Cities Deli in Santa Monica, CA. Both superb in their own right. I’ve hit a couple smaller ones in Chicago that are also enjoyable. This weekend I ran […]

New Orleans Jazz Fest

Officially, the name is New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Fest, and it’s a 10 day musical celebration held each April and May at the New Orleans fairgrounds (race track) and other venues around town. Now in its 45th year, the fest attracts musical acts and fans from around the world – samples of nearly all […]

Cooter Browns Review – New Orleans

I’m not much of a beer drinker, but my go to dive bar in New Orleans is still Cooter Browns, home of 400 bottle brands, and over 80 beers on tap.  The beer list rotates on occasion.  It’s a laid back sports bar in the uptown area, on the St Charles streetcar, and an occasionally […]

Mardi Gras 2015 Poem

I had never been to a Mardi Gras celebration until I moved to New Orleans. What I learned living there, is that  for the locals, it’s a great opportunity for family activities, far away from the tourism debauchery in the Quarter.  I was  ‘inspired’ one year to write this Mardi Gras poem, which will resonate […]

Video – How “Gas Station” Sandwiches Are Made

My definition of a “gas station sandwich” is the sammies one finds in vending,  convenience stores, mini marts, (and gas stations) cello-packed, ready to eat.  I’ve written a lot about them in the past, and my favorites (for quality) are made by the catering arm of Lufthansa airlines, and distributed by 7-Elevens in the Pacific […]
