Equus Castle Hotel & Spa Risotto Small

In the Restaurants section: We had the chef’s Spring tasting dinner at Equus Restaurant one evening, and breakfast the next morning. The menu was very interesting with dishes that brought to mind countryside tastes from Italy, Spain, and France. Quite remarkable. By Manos Angelakis                           Read More...

Hangzhou pandas

Also in Destinations: Beijing and Shanghai are must-see stops for visitors to China, but another city should be added to the mandatory itinerary.  In contrast to those capitals of modern urbanity, Hangzhou offers breathtaking vistas and a medley of cultural options.

Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Small

Catalonia 2014 Can Roca Small

Bulgaria Bagpipe Dance Small

In Destinations: Ancient civilizations; remarkable art; spectacular natural scenery; mythical caves and natural mineral springs; friendly people; traditional villages; nine UNESCO World Heritage sites; great food and even better wine. I’m talking about Bulgaria. By Barbara Angelakis       Read More...

Le Maraís Appetizers Small

Also in Restaurants: Located just off Times Square between 6th and 7th avenues, I consider Le Maraís a find. Right by the entrance, an in-house butcher shop showcases the prime cuts this French-style Brasserie has to offer. By Manos Angelakis             Read More...
 

Old Edwards Inn Main_Street_Entrance Small

In Hotels & Resorts: Every once in a while, serenity finds me. Sipping a frothy cappuccino at Old Edwards Inn in Highlands, North Carolina, I’m relaxing on the emerald lawn, listening to a bird symphony.

In Gastronomy: Sweet New York City; the city is definitely a chocoholic’s paradise. All forms of chocolate are available at all times, including desserts and pastries. Traditional Viennese style cakes and tortes, donuts, muffins, bars, truffles, pralines, ice-cream, gelato...
