One of the most exciting moments in March arrived very early in the month. On March 3, Issue One of Life & Thyme's new quarterly magazine debuted, and it was thrilling to hold it in my hands during the launch party in downtown LA. I contributed a piece, telling the personal story of Providence's Chef Michael Cimarusti and his fish purveyor of 10 years, Alfredo Gurrola. As a writer, there's nothing more satisfying than seeing the power of creative collaboration at work, and I know if you pick up a copy, you won't be disappointed.
Here are a few more things that caught my eye this month.
