Happy Tuesday, Noshers! Last week I attended an event focused on one of my favorite (but I feel often overlooked) fruits – the round, fuzzy kiwi. To be honest, I didn’t really know what to expect when Zespri® Kiwifruit approached me about an event all about the kiwi! But I’m glad I decided to check it out. (more…)

Happy Thursday, Noshers! I am so glad that the warm weather is FINALLY here! I thought this time of year would never come. I hope it stays; if not…I don’t even know what. I already packed up my winter clothes (ah, the joys of a tiny NYC closet), so I am committed to these balmy temperatures.
Last month, I had the pleasure of attending Ramp Fest 2014 in Hudson, NY. You may remember that I attended Ramp Fest 2013, which was amazing – so I was so excited to make the day trip up again this year!

Happy Tuesday, Noshers! I’m SO glad that the weather is finally warming up – it certainly is about time. Today I’m stopping in with a recap of a dinner with Ted Allen I attended a few weeks ago, hosted by Pepcid and Eater.com.

Plus, I have been wanting to try Pok Pok Ny for aaaages – so this was the perfect opportunity.
Excuse the grainy phone camera pics…. (more…)

Happy Tuesday, on this last lovely day of April! With the heralding of warmer days comes one of my favorite seasonal farmer’s market buys – the aromatic and flavorful ramp. I’m super excited to share with you an event I will be attending this Saturday – Ramp Fest 2014. I attended Ramp Fest 2013 (see my picture-heavy recap here) and it was absolutely mouth-watering!!

NEW YORK TASTE!!! One of my favorite events to cover every year – with over 40 chefs from amazing NYC restaurants, the evening was a food-fan’s dream come true. I was lucky enough to cover the 2013 event last week (my third time attending NY Taste!), and I’m super excited to share a recap with you. Warning – tons of pictures ahead. You’re okay with that, right? I thought so. Let’s get started!
As you can see below, I had a ton of eating ahead of me: (more…)
