Music, Country Fair Bacon, and Peaches in Norwalk

When I think about peaches, I think about wrapping my hand around something soft and fuzzy, pulling the small fruit off its perch from one of my dad's trees. It's a nostalgic moment—definitely summer, and I can almost feel the juice run down my chin as I take a bite. Refreshing. When it comes to Peaches Southern Pub & Juke Joint, I'm not thinking soft and fuzzy, but I am thinking refreshing. Here, my tastebuds aren't getting the same effect as sinking my teeth into a ripe peach, but I will admit, the collaboration between owner Greer Fredericks and executive [...]

Southern Comfort Brunch: Judy’s Bar + Kitchen Stamford

Misconceptions can be everything with food. And I, of all people, should know better. Normally I'd tout that you can't get southern food like you can in the South. I'd also be bold enough to say I'm not a huge breakfast fan—savory is my thing and I usually find too many sweets on morning menus. But Chef Judith Roll, of Judy's Bar + Kitchen in Stamford, may have convinced me otherwise on both accounts. Greeting you on the table are some tradition Southern breads to start you salivating—small portions of corn bread and bite-sized cheesy biscuits in small, stainless steel colanders [...]

But the creator behind Fortina took a pause the laughs to have a heart to heart about where our food comes from during this year’s Greenwich Wine & Food Festival.
