Andrew Carmellini is such a star chef in my eyes! I love Locanda Verde and now am equally in love with Little Park, his ingredient driven, seasonal restaurant at the Smyth hotel in TriBeCa.
Truffle lovers – did you know that you could do so much more than just buy truffles based products at Urbani?
One of the most fun things I’ve done this past month was a Chef’s Table style cooking demonstration at the Truffle Lab at Urbani. My blogger friend Jean Philippe from I Just Want to Eat was with me and we had ourselves the time of our lives.
March is the month for women with Women’s day falling on March 8th and celebrations all month long for ‘Women’s History Month’. What better way to commemorate this than with a bottle of Prosecco DOC.
I recently received a bottle of the award-winning Ca’ Rainene olive oil which comes from the olive trees of Paolo Bonomelli Boutique Olive Farm. Nestled in the Torri del Benaco, on the eastern shore of Lake Garda, called “Riviera degli Ulivi” (Olive Riviera) which gives this particular blend of olive oil it’s unique properties.
The Paolo Bonomelli Boutique Olive Farm is dedicated to what it calls “from field to bottle” where there is detailed monitoring and care taken to extract the very best quality extra virgin olive oil from their crop. This Ca’ Rainene olive oil is now available in the United States exclusively through Eataly in New York City.
Get yourself a bottle or two– you won’t regret it.

Last week I spent a remarkable evening at De Gustibus – the upscale cooking school housed on the 8th floor of Macy’s. De Gustibus has one of the most impressive line-ups of celebrity chef’s who come in to demonstrate their culinary talents in a casual and intimate setting. Participants get to observe, interact and partake in a full course menu with wine pairings amongst a delightful cohort of gastro-enthusiasts. I spent the evening with my blogger friends Jean-Philippe from I Just Want to Eat and Cindy from Chubby Chinese Girls Eats.
Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to try a delicious local eatery called Mansion Restaurant a spot that put me in a food coma after everything I ate, but it was so worth it!
Our dinner began with french toast – who said you can’t have breakfast fro dinner? We tried their cinnamon fresh toast with whipped cream and fresh strawberries on top. It was delicious. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
Friday March 11th, 2016 marks the release of the feature film “ The City of Gold” featuring Pulitzer Prize winning food critic Jonathan Gold and director Laura Gabbert.
I was recently invited to a preview of the movie at the MoMA, which was followed by conversation with Jonathan and Laura. We also had a follow-up lunch the next day at Mission Chinese.
