FEAST FESTIVAL 2017

This weekend I attended Feast Food Festival hosted by The Place. The event featured chefs Kelley Lee (Liquid Laundry), Danyi Gao (Shake), Jenny Gao (FlyByJing), Paul Eschbach (Jean-Georges, Mercato), Julio Gomez (Tomatito), Kim Melvin (Commune Social), Carlos Sotomayor (el Efante), Simon Sunwoo (Cobra Lily/Liquid Laundry) as well as new talent Daphne Cheng, a vegan chef out of New York.

For drinks, was a wonderfully crafted beer garden featuring Raphael Holzer (Hong Kong’s Yardbird), Colin Tait (Shake, Heyday), Daniel An (Taste Buds Cocktail Palace) and more. 

All of the food we sampled was delicious and presented beautifully. The live music and casual rooftop atmosphere made for a perfect pre-summer picnic vibe. 

WEEK END IN MADRID

D and I spent the weekend in Madrid visiting family, touring the city, and eating - mostly eating. Walking around the city makes for easy unintentional culinary experiences. Of course, tapas kicked the whole thing off, followed up by seafoods, menu a dia, wine, and postres. Topped the weekend off with a sighting of Alec Baldwin outside the Ritz - sorry no pic - we played it cool.

Oysters and champagne for breakfast is never a bad idea.
