Instant Ramen Noodles

Sunday, November 15, 2009

It all started about six years ago, when I ended up in the hospital with a severe allergic reaction. I had developed an allergy to artificial food coloring and was covered in hives from right below my ear lobes, down to my toes. It was so itchy; I scratched my sides till they were bleeding. […]

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 […]

Starbucks Launches VIA Instant Coffee

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

I’ve written some pretty mean things about Starbucks. I hate their coffee and I think they know that. Yet, they still keep inviting me to their events and I still keep going. They may believe that any press is good press but there’s no guarantee that I will write about it at all. ( I […]

Cowgirl Chocolates and a FoodMayhem Meet-Up

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!

Wine Night Series: August 2009

Saturday, August 8, 2009

Here’s the first edition of our Wine Night Series (besides the preview):
Wine
We had a 2007 Robert Mondavi Fume Blanc. Like many of the Robert Mondavi wines I’ve had, this is a perfect safety wine. It’s a great beginner wine as well, being very easy to drink, light and fruity.

Cheese
We had two favorites, with two new […]

Mrs. McGarrigles Mustards

Friday, August 7, 2009

We tasted Mrs. McGarrigles Mustards at The Fancy Food Show, where they caught my eye with a wide array of whole grain mustards. (Whole grain mustards is one of my pantry must-haves!) Recently, they sent me a box to do a thorough sampling of, which unfortunately did not include the Hot Whiskey flavor, the one […]

Dancing Ewe Farm

Saturday, July 25, 2009

I spotted a new stand in the Union Square Market on Friday (they only come to Union Sqaure on Fridays), a simple layout featuring Ricotta on one side and Pecorino Fresco and Caciotta on the other. Luisa was standing in the center, by a sign that read Dancing Ewe Farm, giving out samples. With just […]

Olave Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Thursday, July 16, 2009

I got a bottle of Olave, extra virgin olive oil, as a departing gift at a press event for food products from Chile. This was a while back but we were still going through all the bottles of olive oil we got from Greece. We finally finished it all and got to open this […]

Wild Sockeye Salmon

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

Tim is from Vancouver and proud of his salmon, boasting all the time about how our Atlantic Salmon just can’t match up to his Pacific Salmon. So when he went home for a friend’s wedding, he lugged back some salmon in order to provide evidence of his claims.
There was two whole headless Sockeye.

The first night, […]

Royal Family Japanese Mochi

Monday, July 13, 2009

This is my favorite pre-packaged mochi so look for this box, Royal Family Japanese Mochi. I remember it being pretty cheap too.

The assortment has three flavors, red bean, sesame, and peanut. I like every one and they’re all packaged nicely with little colored paper holders.

This is the only pre-packaged mochi that seems to be as […]
