Feasting On Friday

A busy week of cooking happened this week, all of which will be up next week while checking in from NYC.

-Tumblr to follow: Sweet Home and Garden

- Did you happen to see this Edible Atlas?

- The New York Times is back in Virginia, highlighting my favorite oyster company.

- Haven't had a chance to eat in Richmond? Well, 804ork is officially available for pre-sale.

- Have you ever oven-broiled shrimp for your shrimp cocktail? Here is an easy recipe for you to try!

- I am looking forward to visiting the Essex Street Market next week. Any hidden gems in NYC I may not be aware of and need to check out?

- And finally, Mary and I over on 17Apart are excited to be working with eHow on a new weekly series. The introductory post is titled — Spreading Our Urban Roots: A 17Apart Welcome. I hope you will follow along!

  1. I'm not sure if it's a hidden gem or not but my friend in Brooklyn came to RVA and brought with her lots of yummy stuff from a place called Stinky BKLYN. Stinky cheeses and fermented goods and this loaf of bread that I THINK is called the stinky loaf. I can't wait to visit the store myself next time I'm there!

    1. You know there are so many places and I have heard of this one. If I am in the neighborhood I am stopping in! Thanks for the reminder and who does not love some stinky cheese?

An avid home cook, I believe in using simple ingredients, local when possible and am inspired by the principles of supporting a sustainable food system. I’ve cultivated this blog as a way to share my passion for the preparation and enjoyment of food in a way that everyone from beginners to long time foodies can get involved in.
