The infomercials may feature extremely toned models who make it look effortless, but to say Zumba is easy would be a bold-faced lie. Believe me, you will be sweating by the end of this class. However, it is important to note that after Omar Baraket’s Zumba class, you will leave feeling overwhelmingly good–beaming even–because though it is exhausting, it’s an incredibly fun time. The instructor, Omar, makes it a point during every class to make sure you’re smiling, and his friendly yet intimidating demeanor is the perfect combination to motivate you to push yourself and work harder without fully exhausting yourself.

When you first enter the non-profit Trustus theater, you are greeted by an entrance which makes you feel like you’re trespassing on a forbidden but well-cleaned warehouse. You’re guided toward your seat where complimentary popcorn awaits you. On stage, you see a simple park setting: two square wooden tables, a grill, a trashcan and an awning. The aroma of hot dogs on a grill surrounds you. The tagline on your playbill reads, “This Barbecue Ain’t No Picnic.” You read this and look at the simple stage design. What could possibly happen?
Pictures are extremely important, especially in our generation. With just one ‘click’ we have the ability to capture a memory that will last us a life time.

This is my 92-year-old grandfather’s famous biscuit recipe. He taught me my love for baking at a very young age. I added Gruyere to the recipe, but you could use any cheese you prefer. My family loves to eat them the day after a holiday; sliced in half, toasted and topped with butter or cheese.
There is a widely accepted cliché that chefs are dreadful people to work for. Many people imagine working in a kitchen to be as close to hell as it gets — getting harshly scolded for unintentional mistakes or being fired on the spot for measuring an ingredient incorrectly. They envision days in a brutally hot kitchen, void of friendly conversation or laughter. One might call this phenomenon the “Gordon Ramsay Effect,” thanks to shows such as “Hell’s Kitchen,” that depict chefs as devils in white coats — cold and egotistical. Pastry chefs, especially, have a reputation in the food world for being perfectionists that demand an environment free from mistakes.
WHEN ANNE COLEMAN WALKED INTO COLLOQUIUM CAFE TO MEET ME, I WAS SURPRISED BY THE PERSON WHO SAT DOWN AT MY TABLE. HER IMPECCABLE MAKEUP, SLIM COMPUTER BAG AND TASTEFUL JEWELS ON HER WRIST AND IN HER EARS LED ME TO WONDER IF SHE WAS A BUSINESSWOMAN ON A LUNCH BREAK.
