SODIÊ DOCES METROWEST ORLANDO If you have never heard of Sodiê Doces you undoubtedly will do soon, as the largest Brazilian Cake Shop franchise with over 300 stores in Brazil, has made its first foray into the United States and opened two franchise stores in Central Florida in the locations of MetroWest and International Drive. The brain child of Cleusa Maria da Silva, the Sodiê Doces idea was created in 1997 at that time on a very small scale but has now grown all across Brazil from Rio de Janeiro to São Paulo and beyond. We had already sampled the wonderful Sodiê Doces cakes in Brazil at on ..read more

Tapa Toro Icon Park & Chef Roberto Trevino

Tapa Toro Icon Park & Chef Roberto Trevino Apart from a very few exceptions we have never had much luck whenever we chose to eat Tapas, and it normally fell into one of three categories, too expensive, too small a portion or not authentic. However none of these criteria can be said of the Tapas offered by Chef Roberto Trevino at Tapa Toro, as the Tapas here is truly outstanding! We have followed the career of Chef Roberto for many years and been delighted at his many TV appearances on Iron Chef America and his judging stints on Beat Bobby Flay to name but a few, but its his culinary skill ..read more

First Look Bombay Street Kitchen Orlando. You could be forgiven for overlooking the location of Bombay Cafe, as it was tucked away in the corner of a small mall on Doss Avenue, a stone’s throw from South Orange Blossom Trail. Never the less it built up an amazing following of dedicated Indian Street Food lovers serving mostly vegetarian dishes such as  Dosas, Chaats, Curries and much more since 2008. But now and for sure never to be overlooked is the new and improved version of this pioneering Indian Restaurant concept, Bombay Street Kitchen which opens on Monday March 29th  in ..read more

New Challenges Call For Fresh Ideas. We have been delivering consultancy to Restaurants and Bars for many years, both here in the U.S.A and across Europe. During that time there have been many periods of industry uncertainty but non comes close to the decimation that currently exists today. Running a Restaurant or Bar is a complex undertaking even in the best of times but sometimes owners and management can be too close to the problem to find a resolution. Instead of carrying on with the hope that things will get better whilst still bleeding profit, cash and market share, operators are now re ..read more

You Need Dough We were lucky enough to try this excellent Dough Chardonnay earlier this week and not only were we impressed with the quality of the wine but also the ethics of the parent company, Distinguished Vineyards. Bread has been labeled “The staff of life” and as Dough is the foundation of making  bread, it can signify new beginnings and opportunities. In these challenging times Distinguished Vineyards comments that positive change can rise from the simplest of actions, by supporting the James Beard Foundation’s work to create an inclusive, equitable and sustainable food culture t ..read more

Thrown By Hand The old expression “ we eat with our eyes” is certainly true, because when a dish is visually appealing, it’s more appetizing.  When eating a meal we use all of our senses, sight, smell, taste and sometimes  even the sound of food, a sizzling Fajita plate comes to mind. We hope by now the fad for serving up food in dog bowls, plant pots and other industrial containers, never intended to be a food receptacle has long passed by, but instead understanding that Chefs go to extraordinary lengths to prepare amazing food why then present it on some run of the mill tableware ..read more

Croissant Gourmet Café-Bakery – 120 E Morse Blvd Winter Park. The litmus test for us on just how much we like a Restaurant or Café is how many times we return when not conducting a review or business meeting and there are a handful of such places in and around Winter Park that fit this criteria. One of those businesses is Croissant Gourmet on Morse Blvd just off Park Avenue. Ever since we moved to WP we have visited here at least twice a week, come rain or shine, hurricane or storm, and we are not alone. Regulars from every walk of life gather here and chat together to put the world to rights ..read more
