After a few days in New York, I am officially having fun. Here are some of the reasons why:
+ Hanging out and slicing salmon with David, who has been in the center position at the Zabar’s fish counter for most of his thirty years there.
+ Grabbing breakfast at the ultimate NYC eatery, Barney Greengrass, with Gary Greengrass, whose grandfather and father took care of my grandmother back in the old neighborhood.
+ Having my friends Clark and Alice take me to Dim Sum Go-Go (5 East Broadway) for roasted duck dumplings, which are a MUST for the next time you visit the Big Apple. We also ate some funky treats at the Congee Bowery Restaurant (207 Bowery), and I ate fish flown in from Tsukiji Market in Tokyo with Yoshi, the sushi genius at Jewel Bako, one of the best Japanese restaurants in the world. I am stuffed.
I think MSPMAG.COM is my new favorite website! Why? Glad you asked . . .
+ Our recipe database includes all of my blog recipes, and hundreds more that I keep sending into the interactive media mavens who run the site. They also have logged recipes from local chefs, recipes on restaurant menus, and recipes from chefs' personal repertoires. AND . . . our entire Restaurant Guide is online and is searchable, which means you can keep up with my editor’s choice selections for the best in local dining. There are reviews of restaurants, travel and eating stories, and plenty of other food-related magazine content now available on the site . . .
. . . such as my Cookbook of the Month selections, so you can keep up with the books, some old, some new, that I am enjoying working out of these days.
