Dear Food Diary:
It’s been a crazy winter this year. With blizzard after blizzard, I’ve been hiding indoors (thank goodness).

My itch to build a snowman turned into my new fun obsession – 3D latte art.

North Brooklyn Farms: Farm to Table Supper Club in Williamsburg

Dear Food Diary:
I didn’t know what to expect when we arrived at North Brooklyn Farms for their first Farm-to-Table Supper Club a few Sundays ago. For one, I’ve never been to this part of Williamsburg and what a surprise it was. A little blooming farm right by the bridge. Their whole concept of bringing the farm to a city setting put a smile on my face.

Delightfully surprised and treated to a lovely night with my girls and a farm fresh meal as we held on to summer.

Dear Food Diary:
Even though I was absent all summer, NY’s new food obsessions traveled all the way across the globe. From the cronut to ramen burger, I couldn’t wait to get back and try them all.

I spent a good chunk of last Saturday at Smorgasburg‘s Ramen Burger line… and I GOT THE LAST ONE! Only a limited amount is served each Sat.
