What is Australian Food?

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

 ~~~Sponsored Post~~~
While recently attending a Tourism Australia event, it dawned on me that I don’t know what Australian food is. This bothered me immensely, as I associate each destination on my bucket list with all the foods I will eat when I get there. I dream about the noodle shops in Japan, the gravlax in […]

“No Kitchen Required” on BBC America

Monday, April 2, 2012

On Saturday night, we made our way to the secret location of NY Bite Club (an underground supper club) where we ate an extra generously portioned tasting menu of dishes from Chihuahua, Mexico and drank cocktails by the famous Joaquin Simo of
Death & Co. 433 East 6th Street, New York, […]

Bullseye Cookies

Friday, December 9, 2011

I couldn’t decide what to make for #NYCookieSwap 2011. It’s a big deal with cookie greats like Dorie Greenspan attending! Lon saved the day and came up with an idea I loved: a way to combine three classic cookies that everyone loves. What’s better than your favorite cookie? Three of your favorite cookies in one! […]

Chinese New Year Food Crawl

Monday, January 31, 2011

Our Chinese New Year Food Crawl (#CNYFC on twitter) was such a blast thanks to this great group of people! Special thanks to my co-hosts Amy Cao and Liza de Guia who make everything more fun!

POM’s Wonderful Inside Soiree + Give-Away

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

I wanted to put up this post before I left for London, but alas, dummy me, I realized morning of my flight that my passport was expired! I called those expensive expediting companies but by 10am, there was nothing they could do to get me on a 7:30pm flight. First, I panicked and cried. Then, […]

Are we Still Talking about Restaurant Week?

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

Every time restaurant week rolls around, I get e-mails asking for advice on where to go. (Please don’t stop e-mailing me for advice. I am truly flattered.) If you didn’t see my little rant a year and a half ago, please read it. I still feel the same way. What I’m really happy about it […]

Fancy Food Show 2010

Friday, July 2, 2010

The Fancy Food Show at the Javitz Center is a three day affair that comes to New York once a year (also shows in San Francisco and Washington D.C.) I’m always looking forward to trying goods from over 5,000 booths, and still trying to figure out what the right strategy is to getting as much […]

Casa Carol

Friday, May 14, 2010

Now that you know it was my birthday, expect to hear more about the celebrating. After all, birthdays are all about more eating, as if I could eat any more than usual. Lunch at Eleven Madison Park was an excellent way to kick things off. I was only worried that I wouldn’t be hungry by […]

Due to fortunate and unfortunate circumstances, I ended up on the same flight to Orlando with Carol, aka NYCityMama. Neither of us were originally scheduled for that flight but prior to the official beginning of festivities, I already had a new friend. We arrived at the hotel with under 20 […]
