Category Archives: New York City
I’ll begin this blog post by serving up a link to an excellent piece of writing by a young fellow from the U.K. who was sitting next to me during one of the lively panels at the excellent two-day Roger Smith Cookbook Conference I attended recently in New York.
I can’t go for too long without a visit to my favourite place: Manhattan.
There’s something about the buzz, hubbub and hum that permeates it both night and day — not to mention the food aromas emanating from food carts and eateries at every corner — that make that place feel like home.
For various reasons, including Canadian Thanksgiving, I had to return to Toronto halfway through the recent New York City Wine & Food Festival. I figure I’ll catch up with the likes of Bobby Flay, Martha Stewart and Alton Brown when they do their stuff in Miami during the South Beach version of this Food Network event in late February, 2011.
NEW YORK: Okay, so the title of this entry is an understatement, a serious understatement.
This city — my favourite place to be and one that truly feels like home — has gone bananas over meatballs. And no, I did not eat “a meatball” as the title of this entry implies — it was more like 15 but who’s counting.
In January, I was visiting my brother Eric in the heart of West Harlem where he now lives when the steak craving struck.
Only one year apart in age, my bro and I have similar taste in food. In a nutshell, we both like to eat. And on this particular day, a hunk of red meat was the mutually desired dish du jour.
