On the Menu: Traverse City Food and Wine

Michigan native Myles Anton has earned a following for his farm-focused cuisine at Trattoria Stella, located in the lively gastro-hub of Traverse City, Michigan. He and his sommelier, Andrea Danielson, will present a spectacular dinner paired with excellent wines—many of which hail from Michigan wine country—at tonight's Beard House event. (Fun fact: Traverse City lies on the 45th parallel, the same circle of latitude that travels through Bordeaux and Burgundy.)

The Bookshelf: The Charleston Chef's Table

As we scanned the names and dishes that fill the pages of food writer and critic Holly Herrick’s new cookbook, The Charleston Chef’s Table, something struck us: the city of Charleston, where Herrick works and lives, boasts three back-to-back medals for Best Chef: Southeast, with Robert Stehling, Mike Lata, and Sean Brock winning in 2008, 2009, and 2010, respectively.
