As difficult as it is to narrow down my
faves, if I had to choose, I
would to go with the dish from The Fat Radish. Chef Nicholas Wilber served a mouthwatering root vegetable stack with date puree and vegetable crisps with salad of heirloom carrot, hijiki seaweed and crispy kale.
The cherry on top, was meeting one of my heroes, Just Food honoree, Joel Salatin, a pioneer organic farmer seen in the Academy award-nominated documentary, Food, Inc.
I went home with one of the best gift bags EVER! A super stylish burlap bag that I'm going to start rockin' as a purse/workout bag, and lot of goodies including: a Brooklyn Slate Co. cheese board, (hello cocktail parties at my place!), ZAGAT guide, Crock & Jar Spicy Kraut, (perfect addition for Octoberfest), mike's Hot Honey, Fresh Bread from Orwasher's Bakery, (stay tuned for my fresh French Toast post) and MORE....
Have a question about eating local, finding a CSA in your 'hood etc.? Drop me a line BELOW and I'll try my best to get you an answer!
And now it's time to don my sneakers to go for a long walk through Central Park to burn off all of the delicious food that I devoured last night...
