  • Rhubarb Poppy

    Rhubarb Poppy
    As you stroll through Baltimore's farmers markets this spring, you may notice what looks like dark-pink celery at your favorite farmer's stand. It's rhubarb, a very interesting plant (some classify it as a fruit, others see it as a vegetable) that is tart...
  • High Voltaggio in Power Plant

    High Voltaggio in Power Plant
    It begins with a wisp of a breadstick shot through with fennel seed. Brittle and hard between your teeth, it shatters with just a little pressure, tasting like taralli, that chubby Italian pretzel-like snack, though this version is much more lithe and...
  • Pair of Choux, Grazing, and Local Pours

    Pair of Choux Susannah Siger made many women smile nearly a decade ago when she married the unlikely but oh-so-right coupling of shoes and chocolate under one retail roof. Now she's added another passion to the mix: authentic French pastries served up...
  • Chardonnay

    My wife has schooled me on the ABCs of white wine, ABC in this case standing for "anything but chardonnay." By all accounts, chard remains the most widely planted grape and best-selling wine-red or white-in the U.S. Cultivated throughout the wine world,...
  • Charles Village Festival, Baltimore Pride, Maryland State Fair, and more.

    Hare Krishna Rathayatra Chariot Parade And Festival of India, noon-6 p.m. May 26, McKeldin Square, Pratt and Light streets, festivalofindia.org. ISKON Baltimore holds its 11th-annual Rathayatra festival in McKeldin Square. A parade kicks off the...
  • Quaint county pub wows with creative, locally sourced cuisine

    Recently, a German friend was trying to come up with an English phrase to describe the delight when something is much better than anticipated-a positive twist on the idea of "bait and switch." I couldn't think of a colloquialism beyond "pleasantly...
  • Jesse Sandlin goes whole hog with Oliver Speck's

    The bottles of fine wine cradled in the racks lining the walls at the new Oliver Speck's Eats and Drinks (507 S. Exeter St., [410] 528-8600) are slowly but surely being replaced by Ball jars crammed with pickled things-peppers, beets, green beans, and the...
  • The holiday onslaught on the Wine Source's shelves has cleared them of any elf- or Santa-related beers

    The holiday onslaught on the Wine Source's shelves has cleared them of any elf- or Santa-related beers, but there are still some winter options to grab up before breweries start shipping out their spring seasonals, according to Wine Source beer manager...
  • Enjoy the best part of the holiday: leftovers!

    Between you, me, and my colleagues here at Baltimore's Hungriest Alternative Weekly's Eats & Drinks section, we could probably write the November food content for Major Media in our tryptophan-induced sleep. What'll it be: brined, deep-fried, or oven-...
  • Annex Theater's new play goes to the origins of Greek drama

    Two Suns over Thebes Translated and adapted from Euripides' Bacchae by Alex Hacker Through Nov. 10 at Annex Theater Greek tragedy, as far as we can tell, originated out of the dithyramb, a choral song to the god of tragedy and wine, Dionysus. And so...
  • Chesapeake Shakespeare Company's outdoor setting breathes new life into old vampire

    Dracula By Hamilton Deane, John L. Balderston, and Bram Stoker Directed by Scott Alan Small Through Oct. 31 at Patapsco Female Institute Historic Park Bring wine and cheese-or, you know, candy corn and Twix-to the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company's...
  • Bubbly deserves better

    The cachet associated with Champagne can cut both ways. Purveyors of fine sparkling wine demand a premium for its prestige and they get it-most of the time. On the other hand, its perception as a luxury product makes it vulnerable to the vagaries of...
