ROW 14: Where Booze Meets Beauty

People who are passionate about their work are usually very knowledgeable and very good at their jobs. This is a life lesson I’ve learned over the years working in the nonprofit and education fields. It was reinforced tonight as I sat with master mixologist and official “Bar Dude,” Travis Plakke, at Row 14. I signed up for a drink menu preview and lucked out in getting history and chemistry lessons as well. Much like dining, it completely changes the cocktail experience to understand where the ingredients come from and how different flavors work together.

Water Filtration

Water is elemental in almost every aspect of cooking, indeed to life itself. Water has become big business around the world and drinking clean, pure water almost an obsession.

We have all at one time or another purchased bottled water from some company, heck I am a sucker for sparkling mineral water as a means to keep from drinking sugary sodas. However, we also know bottled water is not a good idea from an environmental perspective, particularly the “glacier” waters which are shipped from half way around the world.

In addition to creating too much waste for the landfill, mass produced waters are not all that pure nor are they cost effective, and in many cases don’t really taste good.

I think the best overall solution is to filter or purify local water. It reduces waste, saves money, gives our cooking a local flavor and may add some minerals to our diet.

Roundup: Our Guide To Locavore Holiday Drinks In Philadelphia, Courtesy Of Philly Homegrown

 

Take off the ice skates or opera glasses, exit the dressing room, step away from the tinsel and sit down to enjoy a nice, refreshing cocktail. 

C19: This Rittenhouse spot is a locavore’s dream. Chef Andrea Luca Rossi is known for working directly with local farmers and artisanal producers to create his focused Venetian menu, which also includes cocktails. We love their Strawberry Lemon Verbena cocktail made with Hendrick’s gin. The strawberry puree, made from berry’s grown near Philadelphia this past summer and frozen at the peak of freshness, is a ray of sunshine in the dark winter.

Holiday Gift Giving Idea: MAVEA Elemaris Premium Water Filter Pitcher

Do you want to know what annoys me the most about going on vacation? Having to purchase bottles of water because the tap water in the hotel tastes like a rusty swimming pool is what bothers me the most.  I just got back from Las Vegas and enjoyed delicious great-tasting water from my  MAVEA Elemaris Premium Water Filter Pitcher that I packed in my luggage. I saved a ton of money by not having to pay $3.50 per 12-ounce plastic bottle of water! Sure, tap water may be “safe” to drink but it can also contain substances which affect its taste, smell, appearance and overall quality. MAVEA filtered water significantly reduces chlorine taste and odor making your drinking water clearer and refreshingly delicious. MAVEA filtered water:
