Spent a pretty decadent saturday afternoon for a good cause yesterday with @wagz2it, doing our best to help SAVE GOVERNOR! with the great people and terrific food of Governor + Momofuku!
Governor will continue to accept all donations great and small to help rebuild their acclaimed restaurant which was very badly damaged during Hurricane Sandy.
Just wanted to say one more time, NOAH FECKS is now represented by ANDERSON HOPKINS!
Thrilled, Honored, Humbled, Elated and READY TO ROCK!
Happy 100th Birthday to Julia Child, who will always be the person who most inspired me to start a career in Food & Dining despite fear and hesitation.
Her wit, wisdom and HEDONISM about food and life in general are qualities I aspire to and remember every day I go to work.
I truly love who I am and what I do, and for that I owe Julia more than I could ever repay.
Recently had the chance to visit Chef De Cuisine Rebecca Meeker in Austin, and check out Congress! She’s a fantastic chef, who’s enthusiasm and talent are ALL ABOUT why i’m interested in shooting food and dining in the first place. Meeting Rebecca and talking about food with her was like getting my batteries recharged!
Thanks for the inspiration Chef Meeker!
In case i didn’t already mention, my “meal of the year” last year was at COLONIE, The Brooklyn Heights STANDOUT with chef Bradford McDonald. This year, the same wunderkind has joined the team at GOVERNOR. While i have yet to stay for dinner, i’m quite certain the intricate dishes and lush decor are going to live quite high on my list of dinners from THIS year.
In the meantime, it’s been a fantastic place to visit and photograph!
Next time you’re in MIAMI be sure to Visit Michy’s, and you’ll find out what i found out. That Chef Jason Schaan is not only one of the nicest guys i’ve ever worked with, but also one of the most talented.
Not to mention, it would be a CRIME if you didn’t make this amazing Fish Sandwich at home!
If you ever get the chance to visit The James Beard House for dinner, don’t even think twice, just say YES immediately. No matter who the visiting chef is, you’re sure to have a fabulous and decadent time.
On this particular evening, i was HUMBLED and honored to spend some time in the Kitchen with Chef Adam Keough and the gang from Absinthe in San Francisco. Incredible food that came together like magic, right before my little eyes :)
A terrific little story on The Art Of The Menu about the illuminated menus at DUO!
These were VERY tricky (but also quite fun) to photograph so that you could “get the picture” that they are indeed self-illuminating :)
