Jamie Oliver won the TED Prize this year for his tremendous effort to change the deteriorating eating habits of Americans through his campaign Jamie’s Food Revolution. His TV series Jamie’s American Road Trip, a survey of the culturally rich and diverse culinary traditions across America came out last year in the UK but has not made it to the US (though most other countries around the world have aired the show). The accompanying cookbook, Jamie’s America, is already available. Jamie is using his celebrity chef status to make a difference in the world by producing quality shows, cookbooks and products that not only entertain but also educate. He’s my hero and inspiration!
Though The Cheng Sister’s favorite choreographer Pina Bausch passed away last year, her dance troupe, Tanztheater Wuppertal, is continuing her legacy. This year’s performance of Vollmond at BAM was intense, invigorating and emotional for both dancers and audience.
We recently launched a new travel section called Flying, and in it we’ve featured the sensational food and art scene in Houston.
The service at Halekulani is simply unrivaled in the United States! Bravo to the stellar concierge team.
In the last month, the photos on the site have drastically improved in quality due to the Canon Powershot G12 camera. It’s a point-and-shoot, but the quality of the photos amazes me each time. What do you think?
2010 was a fun-filled year with lots of new design inspiration and ventures for me. I started working on letterpress and web design (for my wedding) and found it so exhilarating that we now offer Cravings Designs. So if you’re interested in either letterpressed goods or a new website, take a look at these examples here.
Happy holidays to all! 2011 here we come!
