Ericas touch of taste menu
The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica BauermeisterReminiscent of Chocolat and Like Water for Chocolate, a gorgeously written novel about life, love, and the magic of food.
The School of Essential Ingredients follows the lives of eight students who gather in Lillian’s Restaurant every Monday night for cooking class. It soon becomes clear, however, that each one seeks a recipe for something beyond the kitchen.
Students include Claire, a young mother struggling with the demands of her family; Antonia, an Italian kitchen designer learning to adapt to life in America; and Tom, a widower mourning the loss of his wife to breast cancer. Chef Lillian, a woman whose connection with food is both soulful and exacting, helps them to create dishes whose flavor and techniques expand beyond the restaurant and into the secret corners of her students’ lives.
One by one the students are transformed by the aromas, flavors, and textures of Lillian’s food, including a white-on-white cake that prompts wistful reflections on the sweet fragility of love and a peppery heirloom tomato sauce that seems to spark one romance but end another. Brought together by the power of food and companionship, the lives of the characters mingle and intertwine, united by the revealing nature of what can be created in the kitchen.

Corey and I find ourselves shopping or going to the movie theater in Atlantic Station frequently. I love their low-calorie cocktails because they are delicious yet void of all […]. I normally shudder at the thought of a juice cleanse. For some people, eating for them is a way to survive. This is a short list of the top five things you need to move abroad. But I needed to get this out, so […].
They changed the menu around, and it is for the better! New items add to options, and it's pretty good. Had the fried green beans last night, and they were great. A good-priced diner with homestyle foods is exactly what Fairfax has been waiting for for years. It can get crowded during weekend brunch hours but otherwise is pretty quiet. The service was great, the staff was friendly, the food was good. It was clean and the decor was nice.

Erica's Sidewalk Cafe Menu Info
Weather Forecast. We felt like we were in Mexico when we entered Toro Mexican Restaurant, the latest addition of fine restaurants on Federal Hill. Efrel and Erica Lopes greeted us warmly and showed us to an intimate table by the window overlooking Atwells Ave. Mexican music was playing softly in the background as we admired the murals on the wall, painted by friends from Attleboro, and the exquisite individually carved and painted tables and chairs shipped from Mexico. Crispy corn tortilla chips were brought to the table, along with a spicy salsa that put us in the mood for Mexican food. Efrel, who spent many years in the restaurant business with his family in Mexico and in a number of establishments in nearby Massachusetts, showed his skill as a bartender with the perfect dry martini and Black Russian.
