What a year, that 2016! She giveth and taketh away. There are the most evident topics, which don’t need addressing here. Suffice it to say, we shall see what the next four years have in store for us. Let’s just vibrate within the pages of AmNewsFOOD for now.
There is no time like the first week of the year to set your intentions and get your affairs in order.
Happy New Year! You know how the holidays go.
After a three-year run, the Afro-Asian-American Harlem eatery, The Cecil, will close as a restaurant at the end of the year and reopen as a private events space while a long-term vision is determined.
I hope you enjoyed a merry Christmas with friends and family and your new year’s plan is as lively or sedate as you desire.
Every time I step into a grocery store to shop for my clients is an opportunity to get inspired and create something new on the weekly menu.
Kudos to my mom for a truly wonderful Thanksgiving. The invitation, “come and bring containers for leftovers.”
Did you take my suggestion from last week’s Talking SCHOP! to practice thankfulness during this holiday season, being in the moment, calmly achieving a state of awareness and being grateful for togetherness?
I’ve had nothing but great meals and experiences at every Tom Colicchio eatery in which I have dined.
I was honored again to judge the annual Bake-Off at the Harlem Park To Park Harlem Harvest Festival held last month on St. Nicholas Avenue between 116th and 117th streets.
