Going for Gold

For many people, going to the grocery store, prepping meals and cleaning the kitchen are the kind of mundane chores they’d prefer to avoid. For Joanna Gold and her team of personal chefs, it’s all in a day’s work.  A native of New Jersey, Gold started her business Gold Plated in 2013. She designed her in-home culinary services for busy...

Some of Jacque Siegfried’s happiest childhood moments were her weekly cooking sessions with her father.  “My dad is Shawnee,” says Siegfried, “and he taught me respect for nature, and how what we need is available for us to use, if we know where to look.”  Thus began a lifelong journey of discovery. To learn more, Siegfried pored over history books and...

Bienvenido al Basque

In downtown Tulsa, the restaurant Basque is just down the street from Amelia’s – and yes, they’re related. You enter through a small retail market, go ‘round a corner, and suddenly you’re in a friendly, bustling room with soaring ceilings, a tile-lined bar, lots of bistro-style chairs and tables, and bright, exuberant decor.  The concept is Spain – specifically the...

Swish Swish

An obscure side street in Stillwater is not the most obvious place to look for a restaurant that I readily call one of my favorite dining experiences in the state ... but that is where you’ll find it.  For the past several years, I have been known to make the drive from Tulsa or Oklahoma City to Stillwater and back...

Sparrow Modern Italian

Memorable meals at Sparrow Modern Italian often start with signature, handcrafted cocktails or your choice of a variety of Italian wines. Modernized classics from chefs Jeffery Holloway and Joel Wingate include starters like fritto misto with black tiger shrimp, calamari and lemon aioli, or perhaps try house made crispy fried mozzarella with blush sauce. Salads include the Tuscan kale...

The Big Biscuit

The Big Biscuit offers all things breakfast, with tasty twists on old favorites. Marquee signature dishes include cinnamon roll pancakes, fragrant with caramelized brown sugar and cinnamon, swirled into buttermilk pancakes with a finish of drizzled icing. On the savory side, the Boss Tom sandwich, brimming in shaved turkey, tomato, jack cheese, bacon and ranch on sourdough, comes with...

Kitchen 324

One of the most welcome shifts toward normalcy since COVID-19 vaccines rolled out has been the return of dining out. One of the things I missed most was brunch. Sure, I can make it at home, but there’s something so enjoyable about a lazy Sunday morning letting someone else do the cooking and clean-up.  Kitchen No. 324, from A Good...

A Little Bit of Hope

In 2015, when chef Hope Egan decided to open her own full-service catering company in a small midtown-Tulsa kitchen, her life looked a lot different than it does today. Since then, Egan, a 30-year veteran of the hospitality industry, has added nine acres, plus chickens, ducks, heritage hogs, organic produce and farm-to-table dinners to her lifestyle. In doing so,...

Playing with Fire

The Perfect Pairings Barbecue side dishes run the gamut of deliciousness, from cornbread to pasta salad, corn on the cob and fried okra.  In the case of Tulsa’s Albert G’s Bar-B-Q – which boasts 29 years serving savories – owner Chuck Gawey says that they seldom run out of sides during lunch and dinner service ... but when it happens, it...

Off the Beaten Path

Though it has been in business for more than 20 years, Whispering Pines Bed and Breakfast has remained somewhat of a hidden gem, unknown by many. The property’s new owners intend to change that.  Located on 20 acres just off Highway 9 in Norman, Whispering Pines features three guest rooms in the main building and four separate cottages. A fine...
