Ana Sortun’s Chef Set Meals

Recently I was contacted by a PR rep for Chef Set to see if I’d like to try Chef Ana Sortun’s new line of “chef-inspired homemade meals.” Many Bostoners know Ana Sortun’s famous Mediterranean restaurant in Cambridge called Oleana, or her bakery/café Sofra (both of which I’ve been to and love).

Museum of Science: What I Eat Around the World

On Sunday Funk and I headed to the Museum of Science to check out a special exhibit: What I Eat Around the World in 25 Diets.

Over the weekend, my friend Toni and I took a highly anticipated trip about an hour away to Northborough, MA where the first Massachusetts Wegman’s grocery store opened last month!
