Pardon my quiet last week as I recupped from a couple of weeks of…too much fun. :) Not complaining! I packed a trip to NYC, taped a podcast with Chef Tom Totin at the Waffle Shop, a few days of filming a Pittsburgh episode of a travel series (I’m sworn to secrecy!) and an evening of foodie fun with my Food Co-Op.
For my trip to NYC, I finally got a needed periodic dose of Momofuku and Asian food. Along with Latino cuisine, authentic Asian food is one of things Pittsburgh’s restaurant scene needs! I didn’t have time to head over to Brooklyn or Queens so I didn’t get a chance to get my fix of the former. The photos below are some of my Momofuku and Babycakes bounty, Chinatown produce and Westchester county beach.

After the Memorial Day break, it was time to film a travel show that has, to date, gotten 140 million views online. I can’t tell you what it is yet but I had so much fun working with the 17-person crew and having Kellee Maize, Jason Sauer and Neal Holmes as co-“guides.” Each of us took our pick of Pittsburgh hidden (and a few not-so-hidden) gems to showcase to the world. A few of them are in the photos below. See how many you can identify! The episode will air this summer and I will DEFINITELY let you know when its out!

And finally to cap it off, a potluck dinner with my food exchange group! So yummy to have a potluck with people who love good food!
See more photos HERE. (Be prepared to get even hungrier)
AAAAND even more this summer — a Brazen Kitchen article on Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, a demo at Slow Food Pittsburgh’s Farmers at the Firehouse in the Strip District, a demo with Farm to Table Pittsburgh at the Pittsburgh Public Market and the first series of Brazen Films. LOTS of exciting things.
SCHOOL’S OUT! Let the summer fun BEGIN!
