Livin’ Local The Foodie Life By Aly Wagonseller F or some, food is much more than a way to nourish the body. Those afflicted (or, as some might contest, blessed) with an obsession for finding the best bites on the planet, take dining out or cooking in with much more than a simple grain of salt. They need their flavor fix and are willing to stalk the streets to find it, whether it’s manifested in the underbelly of a local dive joint, a sophisticated jaunt to a refined Strip establishment, or a specialty ingredient for home cooking experimentation. If you’re looking in the mirror and that’s the person who is staring back, we’ve got some local foodie love to share. The first takes you on a high end journey that provides 42 VIP status for exploring celebrity chef dining, the other, a fun way to learn and cook in a professional kitchen atmosphere. Let the foodie life commence. September/October 2017
