A Taste of Sweden

By Linda Tancs

Feeling a bit of Smaklust? Then join 100,000 fellow foodies at central Stockholm’s 2009 tasting event from 21 to 23 August. In addition to the standard fare of reindeer, elk, and preserves of cloudberry comes such epicurean concoctions as asparagus schnapps, cloudberry wines, coffee cheese, elk salami and ostrich milk ice cream. Although held centrally, you’ll experience artisanal delights from all over the country. Eat up, don’t be shy. Best of all, admission is free, so you have more cash to support their culinary endeavors.

A Hearty Breakfast

By Linda Tancs

Surely, you’ve heard the news by now. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Now applying this to travel, I started to wonder which bed & breakfast makes the best breakfast. Of course, this is a subjective determination and, with little experience in this area of lodging, I decided to find an expert opinion. So I turned to the folks at Bed & Breakfast.com for their annual awards recap and found seven honorable mentions. And the winners, in no particular order, are:

Albert Shafsky House Bed and Breakfast Inn, Placerville, CA
Judge Porter House Bed and Breakfast, Natchitoches, LA
Cocoa Cottage, Whitehall, MI
Cornerstone Victorian B&B, Warrensburg, NY
Granbury Gardens Bed and Breakfast, Granbury, TX
Amid Summer’s Inn Bed & Breakfast, Cedar City, UT
Grace Manor Inn, Richmond, VA

What’s your opinion? I’d like to know.
