He Ate, She Ate

Meat Southern BBQ and Carnivore Cuisine

by Mark Nixon and Gabrielle Johnson
The plant eaters had won, or so we thought. Even our family was riven by the war. My son convinced our granddaughter that eating meat was a crime, and unhealthy. Another granddaughter took to Facebook to declare that vegetarians live longer than flesh eaters.

Bridges to Lebanon

Maureen Abood showcases her heritage in ‘Rose Water and Orange Blossoms’

by Gabrielle Johnson
As a longtime Lansing-ite and a person who is always thinking about her next meal, it was with intense intrigue that I first approached Maureen Abood’s culinary blog, "Rose Water and Orange Blossoms," a few years ago. Abood is a member of a prominent Lansing family, one whose generations stretch back into the city’s lore. “My Abood grandparents came to Lansing in the 1920s,” Abood said. “There were already people here from their village in Lebanon.”

Abroad appeal

Wine highlights from popular study abroad destinations

by Justin King
If an MSU student’s academic career were a musical movement, every April would be the tension and May would be the release. Some students stick around to work in town to pay the bills, while others go home for free laundry season. But many Spartans choose to study abroad, driven by a thirst for international experiences. The liquid temptations of Tel Aviv, Madrid and Amsterdam will surely be ignored by the studious green and white, right?

He Ate, She Ate

Asia's Finest

by Mark Nixon and Gabrielle Johnson
Garden of brothy delights Let’s begin on an upbeat note. There is some fine cooking going on in Asia’s Finest restaurant in South Lansing. The servers flash sincere looking smiles as you enter and leave. They are gracious when folks like me butcher familiar Thai and Vietnames...

He Ate, She Ate

Pizzano's offers 'pub grub' and beyond

by Mark Nixon and Gabrielle Johnson
Blue collar charm Standing in Piazzano’s parking lot, I looked across Grand River Avenue at a darkened, silent lumber yard. It struck me that Piazzano’s is like several other Lansing restaurants — Art’s Bar, DeLuca’s and Harry’s Place come to m...

Perpetual harvest

Lansing farmers markets offer fresh food year-round

by Ty Forquer
When there is snow on the ground and ice on the roads, not many people are thinking about fresh vegetables. A growing number of Lansing-area farmers markets, however, are providing customers with a place to pick up locally produced foods through the winter months. The Allan Street Farmers Market takes over the Allan Neighborhood Center parking lot during the summer months, but when the weather gets colder the vendors move indoors for the Allan Market Place.

Grape expectations

Picking the right wine for your relationship

by Justin King
February sucks. This is irrefutable; the pounding winter sucks your life away. Ronnie James Dio once sang, “The vision never dies, life’s a never ending wheel.” February is the coldest, most depressing wheel you’re ever going to encounter, so it makes good sense to put a romantic holiday right in the middle of it.

She ate: Winter flavors wow

by Gabrielle Johnson
The State Room wasn’t one of those restaurants that I thought was cool when I was growing up in Lansing. When my friends and I spent our high school allowances on fancy dinners before prom, we headed to Beggar’s Banquet, Mountain Jack’s or the Golden Rose. The State Room...

He ate: Tripping over superlatives

by Mark Nixon
The sign out front — Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center — does not exactly scream “Great food inside!” It may be one reason the State Room, on the western edge of the Michigan State University campus, can be an overlooked star in Greater Lansing’s culinary constellation.

Wine and dine

Matching vino with local Mexican cuisine

by Justin King
Beer and burritos are truth. There’s something magical about annihilating a fat chimichanga while throwing back some Bohemia pilsners. This simple and glorious decadence that has proven to resolve 70 percent of roommate disputes involving unwashed dishes and friends who sleep on the couch.
