Events like Elevate make Omaha great.

Held on the 36th street bridge, over looking the 1-80 corridor within sight of the newly designed grain elevators whose theme this year was based on transportation, Elevate was the collaboration of chef, designer and farmer whom together designed a communal space paired it with an artistic menu that together created a unique festive eating experience.

This unique eating experience was conceptualized through Emerging Terrain, a non-profit research and design collaborative, whose focus for such an event is to reconnect the public with the landscapes that have been created around us. The focus is to not let oneself take for granted the farms,...

Eight Tips To Successful Grilling

This spring’s been warmer than usual, which means the grilling season began around Easter this year rather than the “official” start date of Memorial Day.
Whether you opt for charcoal, gas or use one of those hobo grills that run on newspaper, here are a few things to keep in mind this spring/summer when grilling:

1.     Don’t buy cheap charcoal. It may be tempting to spring for that generic brand of briquettes for $1.50, but don’t. Cheap charcoal is made out of furniture shavings and includes all sorts of nasty binders. You’ll burn more than charcoal – you’ll be burning stain, lacquer and all sorts of solvents. None of which are good for you.

2.     Invest in some sheet pans....

Grillers’ Guide to Grass-Fed Burgers

A few months ago, I opened my Facebook page to see a Rosie the Riveter-era e-poster on my site. She was holding an armful of vegetables and the caption beneath her read, “Try Organic Food … or as a your grandparents called it, ‘food.’” Replace the vegetables with a hamburger and the caption could’ve easily read, “Try Grass-fed Beef … or as your grandparents called it, ‘beef.’”

This weekend marks the kick-off of grilling season, so I began to ponder the idea of grilling grass-fed burgers for our Memorial Day Barbecue. I have to be honest, in many ways, meat, especially red meat, is unchartered territory for me. I was almost 30 when I had my first hamburger as an adult. My husband made it...
