Radish and Rye

“Making good food for your body.” It’s a philosophy at once so simple, and yet one that sets a remarkably high standard, and one that Chef David Gaspar de Alba strives for daily through the menu at Radish and Rye. The essence of this approach is faithful adherence to and celebration of the quality of […]

The Hive Market

The Hive is a pop-up market in the space formerly known as a nightclub – initially The Rouge Cat and then the Blue Rooster. Enter the colors amber and gold. As the bee-related name suggests, the Hive is related to the beloved Beestro cafe just down the street – both are owned and run by […]

Holiday Gifting at the Farmer’s Market

Every Saturday morning, when my schedule permits, I’m a regular at the Santa Fe Farmer’s market. Usually, it’s for what I call “supplies” – whatever is fresh, eye catching, and fits my recipe plans.

Radical Homemakers Harvest Swap

My friend Erin O’Neill and her colorful posse of gardeners proudly wear and promote their roles as homemakers – albeit of the radical persuasion – with such wholesome yet radical ideas as trading the bounty of their produce amongst each other, creating a barter economy outside the whole cash-capital-tax paradigm.
