Valentines Week is upon us.  You know that week where women demand, guys overspend to impress and Hallmark makes out like a bandit?  Yeah, that one.  I have definite opinions of “Valentines Day” but I will save that for another time.  But while everyone is feeling lovey-dovey this week, here we go:

  • Ok, enough of that mushy stuff.  I’m done with it.
  • I had a dish called “Turkish Eggs” at Goose Feathers Cafe this week.  I had no idea what to expect.  What I got was a wonderful mix of flavors.  Light and filling.  What was it?  Two poached eggs on a little bit of garlic-infused low fat organic yogurt, a drizzle of clarified butter, some diced and roasted green and red peppers, a dash of paprika and a flash fried sage leaf for garnish.  Sounds fancy, but it’s really easy.  And it was really, really good.  Only $7.
  • Iron Chef 2014 is coming to the Southern Women’s Show on February 23rd.  Four chefs, one hour, one secret ingredient, and one champion.  Read more here.
  • I had a little…uh…incident?…with a local BBQ establishment recently.  Check it out here.
  • Had to giggle the other night when Celebrity Chef Hugh Acheson, in town apparently to check on the progress of his new restaurant The Florence, sent out this tweet.
  • Welcome to Savannah, Hugh.
  • Chef Hugh also mentioned that night that The Florence will likely open in May. (We had hoped for April).
  • New Greek spot opening in Ardsley Park in Savannah.  Yia Yia’s Kitchen.  Habersham and 48th.
  • Hilton Head Wine & Food FestivalLooking ahead, it’s not too early to start making plans for the Hilton Head Wine and Food Festival.  March 10-15, 2014.  I spent a good bit of time there last year and the Grand Tasting on Friday night is one of the best evenings/values you will find in the region.
