Mary Mahoney suggests
Caviar for the Holidays

Mary Mahoney has been an institution in Palm Beach for three decades.  Today the shop is not only a staple for Palm Beach hostesses in the know who master the ‘art of entertaining’, but is also a source of inspiration for anyone in search of ideas, themes for their next event, and gifts for their hosts.  

blinis-brc-c_lata-2

Black River Caviar seems to be an ongoing favorite among her regular clients and visiting ‘house guests’ looking for the perfect gift for their host/hostess. So much so, Mary added a designated Black River Caviar section to include a fabulous display of Caviar servers to accompany the exquisite assortment of Siberian and Oscietra caviar.

Black River Caviar, a favorite among Palm Beach residents and exclusive purveyor to Seabourn Cruise Lines, is served at some of the finest restaurants across the Globe.  Harvested in the pristine waters of the Rio Negro with excellent properties for sturgeon breeding, the environment mimics the real flow of a river in a completely natural area, free of contaminants and pollution.

Friend of The Devil-
A Culinary Thriller by Mark Spivak

The name Mark Spivak has been synonymous with wine, spirits, food, restaurants and culinary travel for years.  Honored for ‘excellence in wine criticism’ during his stint as wine writer for the Palm Beach Post, the award winning author and former Sommelier recently completed his first culinary thriller—  “Friend of the Devil’, published by Black Opal Books in May 2016.  Set in Palm Beach in 1990, the novel tells the story of American’s most famous chef, who sold his sold to the Devil for fame and fortune.

Journalist David Fox arrives in Palm Beach to interview the chef for a story on the restaurant’s silver jubilee. He quickly becomes involved with Chateau de la Mer’s hostess, unwittingly transforming himself into a romantic rival of Avenzano. The chef invites Fox to winter in Florida and write his authorized biography. David gradually becomes sucked into the restaurant’s vortex: shipments of cocaine coming up from the Caribbean; the Mafia connections and unexplained murder of the chef’s original partner; the chef’s ravenous ex-wives, swirling in the background like a hidden coven. As his lover plots the demise of the chef, Fox tries to sort out hallucination and reality while Avenzano treats him like a feline’s catnip-stuffed toy.

Here’s what they’re saying on Amazon:

A little Kitchen Confidential, a little Real Housewives of Palm Beach, and a little Faust.”

Sex, drugs, and an upscale version of terducken called Bedouin stuffed poussin …this fast-paced existential drama has got something for everyone.

IconicSpirits-680Moonshine_Nation_cover_enlarged-680

This is not Mark’s first rodeo in the publishing world. His first book, Iconic Spirits: An Intoxicating History, tells the stories of twelve spirits that changed the world and created the cocktail culture. “It’s like sitting in a bar at closing time, listening to a good friend tell stories,” said one reviewer. “You never want it to end.”

He is also the author of Moonshine Nation; The Art of Creating Cornbread in a Bottle, hailed as the definitive book on moonshine in America. The book traces the history of corn whiskey going back to the Colonial period and the Whiskey Rebellion, and provides profiles of actual moonshiners Mark visited throughout the Appalachian South.

If you are a lover of food, wine and great thrillers, join us during a special Happy Hour at Meat Market Palm Beach

Tuesday, October 18th 6-8pm, when Friend of the Devil comes home to Palm Beach
