  • On Oct. 10 five Truckee/Tahoe chefs will learn how to make pho from Mai Doan who was the head chef at one of the first Vietnamese restaurants in California. Later that evening the meal, which takes eight hours to prepare, will be served to the public at Cottonwood Restaurant.

  • We talked to Alice Waters about eating locally in Tahoe, suggestions for combating the Tahoe housing crisis, specifically in regard to housing kitchen staff, and her opinion on fad eating trends.

  • Hogs for the Cause is a weekend-long fundraiser put on by the Crystal Bay Club to benefit pediatric cancer research. Last year, in its first year, the event raised $20,000.

  •  The “eat ugly” movement is making its way into the Truckee/Tahoe community.

  • If you know where to look, you can find every type of cuisine on the cheap.

We’ve made you a summer checklist of the best affordable eats that North Lake Tahoe/Truckee has to offer.

  • We threw some Moonshine staffers into the fire to taste test three types of beer and three types of wine that we think are epically tasty during summer months. Here are their results — some more comical than others.

  • Suggestions for managing an omnivore/vegetarian mixed-use household.

  • To prove how important breakfast really is we talked to Michelle Parker, JT Holmes, and local nutritionist Shavawn Forester about their ideal breakfast before a day outside.

  • Sex drive increaser, bad breath combatant, reliever of menstrual pain, and poultice for snakebites — fennel, that wispy, bulbous, licorice-y vegetable that you might be unsure how to incorporate into your diet is a veggie of many talents.

  • You are most likely familiar with the idea of food journaling, keeping track of your nutrition by writing down everything you put in your mouth, but maybe you’re not sure why or how to get started. Here are some tricks of the trade.
