Every country has it's version of this holiday recipe - from the German Gluhwein to the Italian Vin Brul?.

Here is a great and tasty of how the Swedes have incorporated the enticing flavors of tropical spices. In gl?gg the liquids are steeped with various spices. What better way to keep spirits high when the sun disappears for months? A Christmas gathering with no gl?gg is unthinkable in Sweden, akin to a Superbowl party with no beer.

  • 1 1-inch piece of cinnamon stick

Frisee Restaurant (3/5) on

Tue, 22 Apr 2008 19:51:50 PDT
Frisee Restaurant Categories: American (New), Breakfast & Brunch Neighborhood: Castro Frisee was good, but didn't quite live up to the hype for me. 3.5 stars. Seating had something to do with it - we were seated up on the 2nd floor balcony of this small and lean restaurant (think "loft" seating) - which made me have vertigo until I had neared the bottom of my wine glass. Cool view of the kitchen, though. The service was great, and our waiter gave us very good recommendations.

Seder customs include drinking of four cups of wine, eating matza and partaking of symbolic foods placed on the Passover Seder Plate. The Seder is a intergenerational family ritual.

Restaurant Review #207: Maru, Valencia

Tue, 22 Apr 2008 22:48:22 PDT
A request to try Maru on the house was an invitation I couldn't refuse, and thank goodness I made the trek to the northernmost edge of Los Angeles's suburbs. Even if the meal hadn't had eight indulgent, generously sized courses (per person!) and even if it hadn't been free, my meal at Maru still would have been one of the best I've ever eaten. Maru resides in Valencia Town Square, an enormous outdoor shopping center that can be intimidating to navigate (think Santa Monica's Third Street Pr
