Food & Drink

Whether you love to cook or live to dine out, I’ve got you covered.  I am at home in the kitchen but only because I have so many incredibly tasty options if I don’t have the time or desire to cook. Part of the joy of city living is having a myriad of great restaurants at my finger tips. My children are raised on food from our kitchen and from hole in the wall family operations to some of the country’s top chef’s kitchens.

City Living

City living may mean traffic at your doorstep and “walk in” closets the size of a high school locker, but we put up with those little nothings because of everything else city living has to offer.  We have the world at our fingertips from cafés and restaurants to lectures and performances.  Boston and Cambridge have so much going on every day not only because they are cities but because they are university-filled cities.  We are lucky to live in such an amazing place and whether you’re stopping by for a weekend or you have been a lifelong resident, I’m keeping you in the loop.
