Zimbabwe Petroglyphs

In Destinations: We had traveled to Zimbabwe for the World Tourism Expo, called Sanganai/Hlanganani, that for the first time this year was to be held in Zimbabwe’s second city Bulawayo. Top on our list was the Matobo Hills World Heritage Site, home to some of the oldest rock formations and rock paintings that could be from 9,000 to 200,000 years old.

MarcMondavi Ex Aqua Vinum

In the Oeno File: The divining water trick was only a side show at the Gotham. Marc Mondavi was not in New York to promote his flair as a “water witch”. He was wearing his other hat as a winemaker introducing a new line. It is the first new product from the Mondavi establishment in a half century and the new line is called “The Divining Rod”.

Furmint Cepage

Aditionally in the Oeno File: Tokaj is the name of a winegrowing region that is currently divided between Hungary and Slovakia. Today, after the fall of the Iron Curtain, a number of grape growing and wine making families have returned to Hungary and are starting to again produce very high quality Tokaj wines.

Serenade Tuna Tartare

In Restaurants: We were invited to visit Serenade in Chatham, New Jersey that  promotes itself as “Gluten Free, No Butter, No Cream” which is only partially true because butter and cream are used when absolutely required, such as for the  in-house made ice cream which is heavenly. The seafood dishes they are renowned for are naturally gluten-free. By  Manos Angelakis          Read More...

Anisette Restaurant Small

Also in Restaurants:Trendy emporiums of taste are taking classic American comfort food to new heights…  and prices…  by introducing old-world spices into the mix that makes what was old, new again. One of the new concerns for sophisticated American fare with leanings toward country French is Anisette café and bistro on Third Avenue.

Somalisa Lion Cubs Small

In Hotels & Resorts:While visiting Zimbabwe we were invited to spend one night at Somalisa Camp, located in the heart of the Hwange National Park. Somalisa is called a bush camp, but it was much nicer than a few of the hotels we stayed in during our trip. In the tent we spent the night, there was a king size bed  and a well-stocked wood burning stove. By Manos Angelakis                      Read More...
