The Grand Tasting. It sounds important, it looks overwhelming, and involves a lot of wine and food. My first experience was that Saturday Morning's Grand Tasting, directly after the Alton Brown book signing.
The Palm Tribeca.
Klee Brasserie. Salty and sweet, the fried chicken held up remarkably well making me curious to know how much better it would be straight out of their kitchen.
Bobo. Bershire pork was a creamy layer of fat, rich tomato flavor, I would have loved it in toast, but this was delicious.
Katchkie Farm's stand and taste some of their new products namely the salsa, the salsa that I ate about half a jar of. The salsa I waxed poetically about to Brownie. The salsa that had chunks of vegetables, spicy, but not mouth en fuego. The salsa that is now my favorite.
I was also delightfully surprised by the number of chefs that appeared to hand out their food. I had expected them to hand this off to junior staff, but some well-known chefs were there, smiling and friendly.
