“With this book, you can take a tour through NYC’s best food shops.”
To listen to the hustle and bustle of a market, the sizzle of garlic on olive oil, the clanging of silverware and glasses at dinner.
To eat sumptuous meals like a simmering stew of tomatoes and saffron with shrimp and clams, a risotto made with wine and wild mushrooms, a chicken roasted with Asian spices and served with wasabi mashed potatoes.
To sip a rare and tannic red wine, a smooth and buttery chardonnay, a unique cocktail.
To nibble on a humble pound cake infused with spices and dotted with vanilla beans, to savor an orange blossom soufflé with ginger cream, to devour a slice of chocolate cake.
To marvel at the eggplant, basil, squash and heirloom tomatoes at the farmer’s market, to visit a cheese shop for a triple creme, an English cheddar, a tangy goat.
To visit a bustling food market in Paris, to sample the local food throughout Italy, to buy an ancient spice blend at an Indian spice store.
To be transported through food.
To gather around a table and enjoy yourself with family and friends.
I believe you can bring adventure and pleasure into your everyday life through recipes and destinations. Come enjoy the adventures.
