Exploring Careers in the Culinary Industry
Sunday, May 7, 2006
10:00 am � 3:00 pm
NYU Kimmel Center
Sounds interesting, but not interesting enough for me to pay $25. Haha! And if you're not a student, it's $75. Man, you could buy so much cake for that money. I'd rather have cake.
Feeding Desire: Design and the Tools of the Table, 1500�2005
On view May 5�October 29, 2006
Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum
A journey through the evolution of Western dining from the Renaissance to the present, Feeding Desire features objects from Cooper-Hewitt�s world-class collections. The exhibition will address the development of utensil forms, innovations in production and materials, etiquette, and flatware as social commentary.
Mmm, utensil form...that's hot.
Tast of Chinatown
April 22, 2006, 1:00 - 6:00 pm
Rain or Shine (there will be some tents)
Back by overwhelming demand, over 50 restaurants, tea houses, bakeries and specialty food shops will offer $1 or $2 tasting plates throughout tasting corridors on Mott, Mulberry, Baxter, Bayard, Pell, Doyers and Mosco Streets in Chinatown, NYC. Mott Street will be closed to traffic from Canal to Worth for your strolling and munching pleasure. The only traffic will be from the other eaters and the occasional dancing lion!
I'm not that interested in trying TOC, probably because my favorite food in Chinatown (bakeries and whatnot) cost less than a dollar on a regular basis. Also, I live right by Chinatown. If you don't, this might be cool to check out. It'll probably be hella crowded.
Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry's Tuesday, April 25th
As a way to thank our customers for their support and to celebrate 28 years of scooping the chunkiest, funkiest ice cream, frozen yogurt and sorbet, Ben & Jerry's scoop shops are giving it away!
Around the world, scoop shops are opening their doors from noon to 8:00 pm, to serve up a free scoop of your favorite flavor (or better yet, a new one you've been wanting to try, like Turtle Soup�, Peanut Butter Swirl or Lemonade Sorbet).
WOOHOO HAA HOORAHA! I've never gone for free cone day because...er, seems like the last thing I need to do is eat free ice cream when the paying bit is enough to keep me from eating it all the time, but if anyone wants to wait in line forever for a ball of iced creamy substance, I'll join ya. Just let me know.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer tastes ramen so you don't have to over-sodiumize yourself to death: Revisiting ramen, an Asian staple but an American afterthought (via angy asian man)
Chubby Hubby made a post calling all amateur Singaporean photographers. THERE ARE SO MANY OF YOU! Hop to it.
I'll talk about stuff I ate later. Because. There's a lot of it. [shakes first] Here are some muffin crumbs for your enjoyment:
