While it's always nice to receive the Brandeis Magazine in the mail, I have to say that I was surprised and super excited to see this summer's issue. The focus is on food!
Some of the Brandeis alumni spotlighted have popular Boston area establishments. Nivia Medina Pina, who with her husband Hector, founded Merengue Restaurant on Blue Hill Avenue in Roxbury. Marc Epstein founded Milk Street Cafe in Boston's Financial District and now on Wall Street in New York. Kenneth Osherow operates McKenna's Cafe, launched Savin Scoop, and bought and transformed Savin Bar and Kitchen in Savin Hill, Dorchester.
Others like Mia Bauer, founder of Crumbs Bake Shop, have taken their business all across the country. So many Brandeis alumni are doing interesting and tasty work involved in the world of food. Luckily the magazine is online, so I'm linking to the articles in case any of you would like to read more.

Home Cooking, by Max Pearlstein
Brandeis dining has gone local, global and home cooked. But you'll still find the junk food near the cash register.

While actress Loretta Devine isn't in the foodie section, she's one of my favorites and was also featured in this issue. So here's a link to the article about her as well.
Great issue Brandeis!
