Maine celebrates National Co-op Month

It's the Year of the Dragon (Chinese Zodiac), the Year of the Girl (Girl Scouts of the USA), and, perhaps less well known, the International Year of Cooperatives, according to the United Nations.

Review: Ed’s Roost

Review: Think Tank Bistrotheque

The owners have some very good ideas about food and drink — Southeast Asian treats are cool, and craft cocktails go better with them than wine does — but they have also produced some decisions that make the rest of us scratch our heads.

Review: Jasmine Taste of Persia

Boston is fortunate to boast a number of worthy budget-priced Persian restaurants, among which Jasmine Taste of Persia, located in a stretch of Watertown thick with indie restaurants and Armenian bakeries/grocers, has to rate highly.

Tamarind House -- thai food

Review: Tamarind House

Tamarind House perhaps shows too restrained a hand with its cuisine's boldest flavors, but it's a useful step up from the bowdlerized meekness of the suburban Thai run-of-the-mill.

Review: Lorenz Island Kuisine

When I find a family-run place that seems to serve as an anchor for neighborhood life — serving three meals a day, doing a brisk takeout business, offering live music, DJs, and poetry readings a few nights a month — I think, "Damn, wish my neighborhood

Staying 'classy' over food

As many problems as there are in society over racial and ethnic hang-ups, I've long maintained that the bigger separator of people in this country (and probably most nations) is socioeconomic class.

As I write this, I'm slurping down a soup made of roasted broccoli, celery root, garlic, and broth. I'd never cooked with celery root before, but I had to learn fast — the ugly-but-tasty vegetable was included in the first box of winter farm-share produ
