The Good Stuff

When looking to cook a truly remarkable meal, let these markets help you get started with the finest and freshest ingredients.

Bedford Winter Survival Guide

Like it or not, winter is coming—in fact, it arrived before Halloween. Before the chilly weather really settles in, we compiled a list of essential items needed to survive another brutal Bedford season.

Ten Minutes with Peter Linz

Peter Linz’s passion for puppetry started in pre-school when he put a squirrel puppet on his hand and discovered he could make people laugh. His commitment to a career “playing with puppets” never waned, and he eventually earned roles on PBS’s “Sesame Street” and “Bear in the Big Blue House” and on Broadway’s Avenue Q. But his dream job—a Muppet character to call his own—seemed elusive, until he met Walter. I spoke with Linz at Perks, near his home in Katonah.

Price is Right

Good Fat, Bad Fat

Everyone is petrified of fat, but not Dr. James R. Lyons. Plastic surgeon, bodybuilder, and author, Lyons is not exactly preaching to the choir when he says you don’t have to be afraid of fat. But his recent book, Lose the Fat, Lose the Years, proves his point, rapidly making him the No. 1 name on the lips of every person who desires to look slimmer and younger.

Something to Shoot For

Dazzled

Christmas is a five-sense extravaganza at Cheryl Thomsen’s Bedford home. As soon as you walk through the door you are transported into a happy childhood memory infused with gingerbread men, colorful stockings, and the piney scent of Christmas. Even if it isn’t your memory, it is Thomsen’s and she wants to share the idyllic experience with you. “When people come in I want them to feel like they’re stepping into another world, another place, so for that day they can be living a little fantasy,” says Thomsen.

Get Real

It’s bad enough that I have a miniature poodle in a town where owning some kind of retriever is required by law. Much worse is the fact that—wait. Let me hide under my desk before I confess. Much worse is the fact that I also have a fake Christmas tree. On purpose! Because I wanted one!
