A Taster's Journey is a newsletter on food, wine and travel. After 15 years of studying, tasting, teaching, and selling wine, I created this newsletter to not only share my passion about wine, but of food and travel as well. Each month I hope to share wines that I am drinking, food that is in season, restaurants that I have enjoyed, and places I have traveled. Enjoy!"

  • Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Magic Seasoning Blends are a fun way to add some flavor to your meal. There are several flavors (poultry, meat, seafood, vegetable etc) utilizing the herbs and spices found in New Orleans cuisine. Not only are these spice mixes good, they are also a way to help support one of the chefs of New Orleans.
  • Add color to your vegetable dishes by using colored carrots. It is not just a gimmick, in addition to fresh orange carrots, one of the farmers at the market also had yellow and purple carrots. The purple had a mild peppery taste, while the yellows ones seemed a bit milder. But using three colors will certainly add punch to you table.
