Year One STL: Billy Goat Chip Company

Dr. Fiance and I moved to St. Louis on July 1, 2010. It is hard to believe that we are coming up on our first anniversary in Missouri. In honor of this first year I am going to be publishing a series of posts about the things that we have come to love about St. […]

Sneak Peak: Pickles Deli Downtown

As a downtown St. Louis resident I am a big fan of all of the new development that is happening here. We are getting more and more restaurants every day, and over the weekend I got a sneak peak at the new Pickles Deli which is opening up on the corner of 7th and Olive […]

National Mango Board Event at Monarch

Did you know that there is a National Mango Board? Neither did I until I was invited to a National Mango Board event. Not surprisingly, the National Mango Board is all about the promotion of … well … mangos. They are hosting a series of events around the U.S. to raise awareness of mangos and […]

Cha Cha Chow Truck for Lunch

Cha Cha Chow Truck for Lunch

Nearly all of the food featured here on Shoot To Cook was cooked, styled and photographed by yours truly. However, on Tuesday morning I noticed that the Cha Cha Chow food truck was mere blocks from my apartment, so rather than making lunch for myself, I trotted down the street for some tacos. I am […]

Off Topic: COLOR Magazine Bronze Award

So there are a number of things that I should be posting about, like that beer event without beer I went to last week, and gorgonzola risotto and all kinds of other stuff, but today I’m just going to do some shameless self promotion. I recently was awarded a Bronze Award by COLOR Magazine for […]

Airport Food: It’s Better in Canada

I’ve been on the road again quite a bit and it’ll be great to be back in St. Louis. As I’ve mentioned, I travel a lot for my work which means a lot of time in airports. It’s pretty interesting seeing how air travel is done all over the country. Big airports, small airports, well […]

Park Avenue Coffee Downtown St. Louis

I have a pretty nice espresso machine which was a gift from Dr. Fiance for Christmas a couple of years ago. I have a number of really awesome espresso cups too, and since I’ve had the machine I’ve made some passable espresso. However, more often than not I end up with weak, thin espresso with […]

12 Tips to Minimize Food Waste

Fellow St. Louis cook (and New York transplant) food blogger Nupur of One Hot Stove has a great post today about minimizing food waste, something that is something I certainly need work on. Since a large focus on my cooking is the resulting photography, how the food looks as I prepare it is very important. […]

Hotel Cooking

Dr. Fiance and I didn’t do much cooking this weekend on account of an arctic trip into the Missouri wilderness to locate and slay a giant Christmas tree. It’s possible we over-compensated for ten years of insanely priced and incredibly compact New York City trees because we ended up with a tree that is nearly […]
