Buffalo Trace Distillery Will Open a Dining Destination
Buffalo Trace announced it will expand its distillery footprint by opening a “new local tourism and dining destination", according to a press release. The new venue, set to open next summer, will replace a gas station on Buffalo Trace’s property. Though set plans have not been announced, the new addition is being welcomed by the Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture Dr. Ryan Quarles, who said, “We are thrilled to see the historic Buffalo Trace Distillery continue to expand through this exciting project that will showcase Kentucky Proud food and beverages to an even wider audience in the years to come.”
Miami Comes to East Hampton with the Opening of El Turco
Miami restaurant, El Turco, recently received a Bib Gourmand designation from the newly minted Florida Michelin Guide. If you’re itching to try the Turkish-inspired menu but you simply must summer in the Hamptons, you’re in luck. El Turco has just opened a spot in East Hampton at 44 Three Mile Harbor Road. The restaurant offers signature dishes such as al nazik kebab (smoked pureed eggplant with sauteed lamb cubes), roasted beet hummus, and manti (beef dumplings topped with garlic yogurt).
Martha Stewart Wants You to Eat Dinner at 7 p.m.
Well, not Martha personally, but her website did just source an article in the journal, Frontiers in Nutrition that studied people in Abruzzo, Italy that has a high number of nonagenarians (people between the ages of 90 and 99) and centenarians (people who are 100 years old). These long-lifers swear by dining at around 7 p.m. each evening. The old folks also ate a diet rich in vegetables, fruits, and cereals and low amounts of meat and processed foods.
Meet the pizza that’s deeply offensive to Italians
As reported in Air Mail, “Flavio Briatore has long been Italy’s poster champagne man. After being accused of multiple counts of fraud in the ‘80s, he did a stint in exile in the U.S. Virgin Islands. In the early ‘90s, he returned to Italy as manager of Benetton’s Formula One team, where he discovered and mentored a young Michael Schumacher. In 2008, he was accused of race-fixing and ousted from the team.” Now, he’s making Crazy Pizza his shop in locations around the world — including Italy — where a pizza with mozzarella and black truffle costs 49 euros, or one with Spanish jamón costs 65 euros. Of his pizzas, he said on Instagram, “The truth is, I’m a genius, and you, well … you just aren’t.”
