Chef’s Night Off: Tea and Cheese Tasting
I’m headed to a new tea shop, In Pursuit of Tea (33 Crosby Street between Grand and Broome in SoHo, NYC), this evening to indulge in a bit of delicious education. My friend Melanie, a tea specialist and chef, is working with Sebastian Beckwith from Pursuit of Tea and Benoit Breal from Saxelby Cheese toContinue reading “Chef’s Night Off: Tea and Cheese Tasting”
Riesling Goes with Everything
I just submit November’s Eat and Tell column, so you should be seeing it up very soon (see the links section to the right).

This trip, I’ve kept the itinerary to a minimum – my hostess has a broken foot and I’m content to relax and go with the flow of being on vacation.

Before I get into the past events, I just want to recommend that you take advantage of the LUCKYRICE Restaurant Week going on this week (May 3-9,Continue reading “My Lucky Break – LUCKYRICE, Part 2 & 3”
My Lucky Break – LUCKYRICE, Part 1
The past couple of evenings have been quite full, thanks to my friend Jennifer Baker of Mina Productions. She is one of the event producers for LUCKYRICE, a series of parties, discussions, cooking demonstrations, and a week of restaurant specials all over NYC (going on now!). So far, I’ve attended two events, and I stillContinue reading “My Lucky Break – LUCKYRICE, Part 1”

And enjoy some of the best, most creative BBQ anywhere! This place happens to be Fatty ‘Cue. Zak Pelaccio’s latest contribution to the NYC dining scene and his only venture currently in Brooklyn. All the meats are house smoked on the back deck. Preparations are unique with nods to a both Malaysia/Indonesia and the GreekContinue reading “Find This Place!”
