I am seriously in hibernation mode these days. I go to work, I come home, I intend to read, I cook comfort food and I eat.
If you are getting out of the house today (Saturday 2/9), head down to Verdigris Tea & Chocolate Bar at 5pm. From there you’ll walk to the Christopher Norman Chocolate Factory for a tour, then back to Verdigris for a wine and chocolate tasting. Chocolate and wine = comfort food.
* Sadly the tour was cancelled…
Next weekend, gather around your computer for a TEDx talk, Changing the Way We Eat on Saturday February 16. I know my attention span will not allow me to watch/listen all day, but I’ll try to tune in at least for Anna Lappe. Her mom’s book provided one of my early food awakenings.
Did you see that NY State is the “Silicon Valley of Greek Yogurt“? Who knew??? I see some spoons in our neck of the woods, so that must include Maple Hill Creamery (you can find at Otto’s in Germantown or the Co-op in Chatham), Old Chatham Sheepherding (at the farm) and of course, Ronnybrook Farm.
And in the world of food art…
Andy Ellison gets the prize for creative thinking. Who else thinks of putting fruit and vegetables in an MRI machine? Frankly, those are the only things that really fit in those claustrophobia machines. Check out the animations here. Can something be black & white AND psychedelic at the same time???
