Saji Magazine: food, art, fashion and recipes

  If you are a regular reader of The Sama Gazette (aka a Sama-Reader), then you probably already know the Sama Epicurean Fraternal Society.  It has been a while since we first mentioned it on the Gazette and many of you are very interested in the idea of a Sama Epicurean Fraternal Society. We also are. And we are working on it, as the information already leaked from a careless but still beloved Sama Team member (it starts with an ...

Happy Thanksgiving and How to Cook a Turkey

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! It’s time for the turkey, with family and/or friends, and for the holidays. We hope you will all enjoy this time of the year, although Thanksgiving is not celebrated outside of North America.

The Art of Living by Côté Bastide

  If you frequently read the Sama Gazette, then you know we appreciate l’Art de vivre à la Française (French Art of Living) and that we are seriously thinking about launching the Sama Epicurean Fraternal Society for real.

Kanye West at VMAs: Sama Team investigates

At that time, the video showing Kanye West grabbing the mic as Taylor Swift accepts her award on stage at the MTV’s Video Music Awards this week-end, has been seen worldwide. He obviously drank too much, as we could see him taking swigs from a bottle on the VMAs carpet. Some did enjoy the show, some others say it was a disrespectful act, and some others think the whole thing was a publicity stunt. The Sama Team decided to investigate; read below the ...

  It’s Friday night, it’s late, let’s talk about serious stuff: Whiskey Stones. I don’t drink much (unlike some other members of the Sama Team, I will not give away any names, they will recognize themselves) but I have to admit the idea of the Whiskey Stones sounds great for any Manhattan on the rocks amateurs. Stones, in your Bourbon? Exactly!   Here is how it works (taken from ‘Why This Gets The Delight Seal of ...


Julie & Julia: ‘Bon appétit!’

For our first post in the ‘Bon vivant’ Category, we wanted to honor one of the many epicurean pleasures a ‘bon vivant’ enjoys. Food, that it. Food in a movie. “Julie & Julia” is an upcoming 2009 comedy-drama film, written and directed by Nora Ephron, depicting events in the life of famed chef Julia Child. Based on two bestselling memoirs: Powell’s Julie & Julia and My Life in France, by Julia Child with ...
