If you haven’t seen Jamie Oliver’s TED speech, you should. It is truly inspirational. One of the many great quantifiable and very attainable goals he proposes, is to make sure each child leaves high school with 10 recipes that will save their life. With just 10 recipes, we can minimize the amount of fast food […]

Perfect Biscuits

Saturday, February 13, 2010

I have played around with this biscuit recipe many times now, which started out as the Cheddar and Chive Biscuit recipe from BLT Fish. I have suspicions that it’s not the same recipe they use in the restaurant, but that’s a different story. I started with the recipe they shared, made it, liked it, then […]

Over twitter, James Boo (of The Eaten Path) asked where he could find 82% butter near Union Square. I sent him to
East Village Cheese Shop 40 Third Avenue, New York, NY 10003, and that’s it, we were friends. He found the butter he needed, and that’s all it takes to become […]

Pepolino 281 West Broadway, New York, NY 10013 feels like an Italian guy’s home. All the waiters are Italian men and probably 75% of diners are too. Everyone is nice. It’s pretty big (2 floors + outside) but cozy, moderately disorganized, and as loud as a frat house. They seated us with […]

It was time to make something special for Winnie’s birthday. Besides that, I kind of owe her. She was one of my first friends in college, possibly the second person I met. We were sitting next to each other in an economics class (theater style seating) when I just fell asleep on her. I had […]

Jeffrey’s Meat Market: Pig Butchery

Monday, February 8, 2010

A couple of weeks ago, I got an e-mail asking if I’d like to go to a butchering class. Really? Of course I would! And more importantly, I could pass this off as a Valentine’s Day present for Lon. Lon loves butchery!
It get’s better.

Blueberry Topped Fiori di Sicilia Cake

Sunday, February 7, 2010

It was time to make a birthday cake for my little brother, Justin, 6 foot 1 inch tall and about twice my weight, but still my little brother. He doesn’t really get excited about cake so I struggled a little over this one. Lon reminded me that Justin isn’t into frosting. It seems he often […]
