NEW YORK — Arielle Haspel, a Manhattan nutritionist with a sleek social media presence, wanted to open the kind of Chinese restaurant, she said, where she and her food-sensitive clients could eat. One where the lo mein wouldn’t make people feel “bloated and icky” the next day, or one where the food wasn’t “too oily” or salty, as she wrote in an Instagram post a few weeks ago. She chose a name for her new restaurant, Lucky Lee’s, that sounded stereotypically Chinese, even though she and her husband, Lee, are not Asian. She decorated the restaurant with bamboo and jade touches, and designed her logo with a chopstick-inspired font. And then, quite predictably, she was flamed on the internet for it. The uproar over Lucky Lee’s, which opened Monday, has become the latest front in the debate over cultural appropriation and cultural arrogance, following controversies involving, among many others, Dolce & Gabbana and Miley Cyrus.

For my 14-hour flight to New York from Dubai, I decided to fly business class for $US5,400 operated by Emirates Airlines. Excited to fly business class for the first time, I got to the airport four hours early so I could experience one of Emirates’ legendary business class lounges at Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 3, a$US4.5 billion building that is the largest airport terminal in the world. I visited Emirates Concourse B lounge, which was recently renovated for $US11 million. It features five main dining stations, a champagne bar by Moët & Chandon, a spa, a children’s arcade, a Costa Coffee, and seating for 1,500 passengers.

To say I was excited to fly business class for the first time would be an understatement. Add in the fact that my ticket was with Emirates, rated the fourth best airline in the … [Read more...] about I spent 4 hours in Emirates’ flagship business class lounge, where wealthy travellers sip champagne, get massages, and eat from 5 different restaurants — and it was the best airport lounge I’ve ever been in

If you are in Catalonia and want to enjoy your very own calçotada but don't have access to your own barbecue, don't worry. Luckily there are places to find “merenderos” (picnic areas) close to the city as well as vineyards which have barbecues set up. They supply the barbecue, firewood and tables and you just bring what you want to eat and drink (in the case of the wineries, you are expected to buy their wine). Calçots Recipe: Preparing Calçots couldn’t be easier. There’s no need to clean them or cut the roots off, simply place them on the barbecue as shown above. Unlike meat and other vegetables which cook best over hot embers, calçots should be cooked while there are still flames. After about five minutes you will see bubbles of juice escaping through the blackened outer leaves signalling that the calçots are cooked. Wrap them in newspaper and carry them to the table. Romesco sauce is available in pretty much … [Read more...] about Recipe: How to make, eat and enjoy calçots
