Cook.Eat.Drink.Live

Sunday, November 8, 2009

We were invited to attend Cook.Eat.Drink.Live, yet another food event. It seems like these are popping up every other week these days (in NYC). Held at The Tunnel/La Venue, there was a room for wine tasting, a long corridor of food tastings, and two stages with scheduled demos. There was also one room that seemed […]

New Amsterdam Market

Monday, October 26, 2009

I have been anticipating this month’s New Amsterdam Market, a temporary monthly market, held where the old Fulton Fish market was. The stands focus on local farms or purveyors that source from local farms, with a special focus on meats this time. I knew there were several vendors from Brooklyn, NJ, or upstate NY, places […]

FoodMayhem’s First Meet-Up

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

UPDATE: Brunch will be at Gottino (52 Greenwich Avenue, NYC) at 11am on Saturday, October 17th
Hi everyone!
Way back, when I started blogging, I didn’t really understand what blogging meant. It changed my life unexpectedly and I’m still surprised by it almost daily. One of the greatest blessings that I did not foresee, was that blogging […]

Ocean Spray’s Bogs Across America (with Duff Goldman and Tyler Florence)

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

I always thought Ocean Spray was another one of those mega corporations, or under some umbrella with 400 other brands. It’s not! It’s a grower-owned cooperative of about 600 cranberry farms, most of which have been growing and harvesting cranberries for several generations.

Plate by Plate 2009

Saturday, October 3, 2009

I was at Plate by Plate, Project by Project‘s annual tasting benefit, last night. I was privileged enough to get early access, to watch as the chefs plated their dishes. This is my favorite part, the calm before the storm, when I can watch as chefs are busy, but still have the time to have […]

Sunday, September 27, 2009

Erin of Doctor Food has been a blogger friend of ours, almost since the beginning of FoodMayhem. She knows us well and knew that we’d love Cowgirl Chocolates, so she generously sent us a bunch of flavors to try. Thank You!

Le Fooding D’Amour

Saturday, September 26, 2009

We were at Le Fooding D’Amour tonight (held at
PS 1 Contemporary Art Center 22-25 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City, NY 11101). It’s a mess of a food event with lines being the main theme. With at least 1000 people, probably more, and just nine stands to get food….you do the math. […]

I just got home from the Hellmann’s press event, where Billy Ray Cyrus helped announce their support of Feeding America.

Thoughts on Public Relations Events in Food

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

In the last year, we’ve been invited to more and more Public Relations events spanning from restaurants to product launches to food festivals. I think it’s awesome that companies are finally starting to recognize the strength of blogs and are including us in media. It’s a new realm for lots of companies and I’ve seen […]
