While one week is a scorcher and the next one leaves us reaching for an extra scarf, Bostonians can always depend on a robust food scene to get us through the week, no matter the temperature. In this food news, Tiger Mama hosts a snowstorm roundup, Serafina prepares to open its “garden,” and Joy Wilson of Joy the Baker pays a visit to Boston.

Serafina to Open Outdoor Addition
Hit by a blizzard one week, 60s the next: Boston is always telling us to be prepared for shifts in the weather and this means getting excited about patio season. Serafina will soon debut II Giardino at Serafina. “The Garden” at Serafina will live up to that name with 74-seat picnic-style patio seating. Executive Chef Brendan Burke’s full menu of Italian specials will be available during lunch and dinner, and the restaurant will also have its full liquor license. Once unveiled, Il Giardino will be open from 11 a.m.–10 p.m. during the week, and 11 a.m.–11 p.m. on Friday and Saturdays. 10 High St., 617-426-1234
