After a week in Denver speaking at a Gin Summit on some of my standout gin travels and discoveries at innovative bars and distilleries around the globe, then moderating panels all week at ADI’s Distilling Conference, I spent an unforgettable week in Italy for CARE’s Ethical Chef Days event in the stunning Dolomites (Italian Alps), followed by a week of food and drink research in Prague. It was amazing — and I’m thrilled to be home.

Article: From the January 2019 print issue of Vogue, a fascinating read by Jancee Dunn on the dark side of being obsessed with healthy eating, a not often talked about condition called orthorexia. I borrowed the magazine from my library but Magzter has the article scanned online.
