Drew Davis Goes Whole Hog

While roast pig is the centerpiece at this chef’s alfresco feast, 
it’s friends and family who steal the spotlight.

Lizbeth Scordo 111 East, Restaurants

FOOD Chef Drew Davis is the first to admit he has little time to throw dinner parties. “Honestly, I don’t really have time to do anything, owning my own restaurant,” the 39-year-old says, referring to Catalan Mediterranean Cuisine, the Spanish-influenced Mediterranean eatery he owns in Rancho Mirage with his wife, Cynthia, and parents, Mark and Lecie Davis. So when he

Optimal health begins with optimal nutrition. But with so many fad diets populating the modern sustenance scene, the world of wellness can be rather tricky to navigate.

FOOD With picnic season upon us, the idea of heading outside (before the temps shoot up, as they always do) for an afternoon of gourmet noshing sounds enticing, until we end up with soggy sandwiches, crushed cookies, and boring bottled water and wonder why we just didn’t go out to lunch instead.

Trust Brooke Williamson with a secret. Anyone who can sit on the results of winning Top Chef for months is worth her weight in gold. Or maybe dough is a better word. Williamson, who is coming to Palm Desert Food & Wine starting March 24, was judged to be the best after a four-course cook-off with Shirley Chung. After being

Knives making contact with cutting boards.
