[EATVENTS] MAY 2: Ramp Fest 2015

RAMP FEST HUDSON 2014

Dear Food Diary:
The wild onion aka ramp season is here again and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve already grilled a few batches at home and can’t wait to have in all sorts of creative ways at the Ramp Fest 2015 coming up May 2nd in Hudson Valley.

We had such a fun time last year. Check out some of the highlights and get your tickets!

EATVENT: Meat Pies and other Thanksgiving goodies at M. Wells

Dear Food Diary:

French class is one of my favorite memories from Toronto public school. Mind you, when I finally made it to Paris, I couldn’t parler any Francais. But those wonderful Tourtière (meat pies) our teacher – mademoiselle M – made for the holidays are still vivid enough, I can smell it. I haven’t had one just like it since, but  genuine nostalgia might be to blame…

These delicious memories came back while reading M.Wells ‘ Thanksgiving email – meat pie season has started!

[ RECIPE ] Best Bloody Mary in America with Absolut

PowerPoint Presentation

Dear Food Diary:
Happy Halloween! I’m not big on the festivities but thought a good Bloody Mary recipe would come in handy tonight. What other drink shouts halloween like this red concoction? Plus, you can pretty much dress it up any way you want it!

A few weeks ago, I attended Absolut’s Bloody Mary 80th birthday celebration. Did you know it was originally named “Red Snapper”?.

They had a recipe contest for the best bloody mary in America. Got to sample the winning one from Texas. And made my own Bloody Chubby.

Dear Food Diary:
It’s that time of the year again, when food lovers go crazy about these wild garlicky greens. I just had some simply grilled last night. So good.
