More Radio Segments, Chats

Happy Spring, all! The winter was a busy one here, with more new reviews, photo slideshows, and a few radio appearances to boot, including segments on WMFO (91.5 FM). In addition, the food chats have been continuing, with one of our guests being Jeffrey Saad from the Cooking Channel and the Food Network. More radio bits and food chats will be on the way, so stay tuned!

A Chat with Jeffrey Saad

As mentioned above, a food discussion took place last month with Jeffrey Saad of the Cooking Channel and the Food Network. The hour-long cooking chat with Jeffrey--who is also an author, chef, and restaurant partner--looked into everything from favorite recipes to equipment used to tips and tricks to cooking techniques and more. (The chat can be found at www.hiddenboston.com/transcript-0313.html)

There will be more chats coming up, including group discussions as well as one--on-one talks with folks in the restaurant industry and the media, so keep checking back! The other chats are at this link: www.hiddenboston.com/discussions.html

This Issue's Feature

A Few Ice Cream Places

While not exactly a feature (it's a blog entry), a recent post on ice cream places in the Boston area seems to be perfect for the spring season (especially if the rain and cool temps stay away). Included in the post are a number of ice cream spots, most of which are lesser-known, and some of which are in very scenic areas.

What are some of your favorite ice cream places in the Boston area? Any elsewhere in New England? Let us know about some of your faves!
