The headline is true... And we're highlighting this simple recipe because it comes from Jason Pedwell, a lover of food, but of the extremely healthy kind! Jason, who is helping Foodie Empire by running our Instagram account, practices "Keto" which is a low-carb diet. We're more than happy to share some of his creations, which will include a healthy Beef Bourguignon coming soon.

It was an honor to attend a holiday party at the home of Foodie Empire Honoree Som Kesa and her husband Larry. The decorations were beautiful, the guests were wonderful with so many amazing stories and the food of course, was unlike anything I've ever tasted before (as is always the case when being treated to Som's cooking).

Pear Haymaker Cocktail with a Local Seattle Twist (or two)...

Here's a fantastic, refreshing cocktail for the holiday season (or anytime!) with a local Seattle twist from Rob and Donna Dughiwho are featured Honorees for our Season One.

Inspired by the fresh fruits of the fall season and wanting to create something that would stand out at our Foodie Empire party, Rob and Donna found the Pear Haymaker recipe here in Saveur, that derives from Philadelphia restaurant Talula's Garden. But being in Seattle, they wanted to add their own special touches. So they integrated local Batch 206 Vodka and Rachel's Ginger Beer (which really made the cocktail stand out) and used pear juice vs. using a muddler. The end product was brilliant!
