Harlem EatUp 2016

I had a lot of fun today at Harlem EatUp 2016 a four-day food festival in Harlem. The kick-off provided the community with the opportunity to dine at local restaurants and enjoy meals prepared by the executive chef in concert with celebrity chefs. I wasn’t quick enough to nab a ticket to one of the many dinners – they went like hotcakes! But I didn’t let the disappointment consume me, I just waited patiently for the weekend, and took part in the all-day event on Sunday aptly named “The Sunday Stroll”

It was so good to hob nob with celebrity chefs and innovators in the food industry, and I am pleased to confirm that I met Cory Nieves of the famed Mr. Cory’s Cookies – check him out!

A Taste of Harlem

The holiday season had me tied to the kitchen and my laptop. I had a wonderful time, experimenting with ingredients and reviving old recipes so that I could share them with you. Now I need to get out and see what New York City restaurants’ winter menus have to offer. Hopefully I’ll get some inspiration to develop a recipe or two.

I didn’t venture very far this week, I decided to check out what was new in Harlem – a taste of Harlem, so I visited three newly opened restaurants:

  1. Sexy Taco Dirty Cash, 161 Malcolm X Blvd, New York, NY 10026
  2. Row House, 2128 Frederick Douglass Blvd, New York, NY 10026
  3. Chaiwali, 274 Lenox Avenue, New York, NY 10027

All three opened their doors for business recently in the last couple of months.

Blog Life Week 35

Let me preface this post by declaring that I am exhausted! I have attended so many events, parties and dinners this summer.

New York winters can be brutal as you know, so I make sure to get out and enjoy what the city has to offer during the warm months. The sun has really played its part this year, New York has had so many beautiful days and warm breezy evenings, so it has been a pleasure to saunter around the city having a bite here and a drink there, shaking my hips to the beat over there and socializing with folks here and there.Read More
