New Amsterdam Market

Monday, October 26, 2009

I have been anticipating this month’s New Amsterdam Market, a temporary monthly market, held where the old Fulton Fish market was. The stands focus on local farms or purveyors that source from local farms, with a special focus on meats this time. I knew there were several vendors from Brooklyn, NJ, or upstate NY, places […]

FoodMayhem’s First Meet-Up

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

UPDATE: Brunch will be at Gottino (52 Greenwich Avenue, NYC) at 11am on Saturday, October 17th
Hi everyone!
Way back, when I started blogging, I didn’t really understand what blogging meant. It changed my life unexpectedly and I’m still surprised by it almost daily. One of the greatest blessings that I did not foresee, was that blogging […]

Ocean Spray’s Bogs Across America (with Duff Goldman and Tyler Florence)

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

I always thought Ocean Spray was another one of those mega corporations, or under some umbrella with 400 other brands. It’s not! It’s a grower-owned cooperative of about 600 cranberry farms, most of which have been growing and harvesting cranberries for several generations.

Gourmet Magazine R.I.P. & Olive Caper Relish

Tuesday, October 6, 2009

Conde Naste is closing Gourmet Magazine!
I just felt compelled to make a recipe, with the magazine flipped open on the counter, letting anything splash on it that may, the way I started cooking. I ended up at the last few pages of the March 2003 edition, looking at this simple Olive Caper Relish. It’s so […]

Plate by Plate 2009

Saturday, October 3, 2009

I was at Plate by Plate, Project by Project‘s annual tasting benefit, last night. I was privileged enough to get early access, to watch as the chefs plated their dishes. This is my favorite part, the calm before the storm, when I can watch as chefs are busy, but still have the time to have […]

Starbucks Launches VIA Instant Coffee

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

I’ve written some pretty mean things about Starbucks. I hate their coffee and I think they know that. Yet, they still keep inviting me to their events and I still keep going. They may believe that any press is good press but there’s no guarantee that I will write about it at all. ( I […]

Cowgirl Chocolates and a FoodMayhem Meet-Up

Sunday, September 27, 2009

Erin of Doctor Food has been a blogger friend of ours, almost since the beginning of FoodMayhem. She knows us well and knew that we’d love Cowgirl Chocolates, so she generously sent us a bunch of flavors to try. Thank You!

Le Fooding D’Amour

Saturday, September 26, 2009

We were at Le Fooding D’Amour tonight (held at
PS 1 Contemporary Art Center 22-25 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City, NY 11101). It’s a mess of a food event with lines being the main theme. With at least 1000 people, probably more, and just nine stands to get food….you do the math. […]
