Into the Wild(woods) of New Jersey

Beach vacations, done right, have a magical way of getting you to eat, drink and do things you'd normally steer clear of on a regular weekday. Take roller coasters. I hadn't been on one in years, ever since a wild ride on the Phantom's Revenge at a Kennywood school picnic left me dizzy for weeks.

Chefs young and old reinventing classic Kentucky hot Brown

Kentucky’s most famous sandwich is getting a gourmet upgrade for its 90th birthday. The historic Brown Hotel in Louisville, where the iconic dish originated in 1926, will offer the “Haute Brown” for $90 from April 15 to May 15, while supplies last. The classic plate, Texas toast topped with roasted turkey, Mornay sauce, roma tomatoes, bacon and fresh parsley, goes over-the-top in Executive Chef Josh Bettis’ newest take for a limited time.
