Five great things I ate (and drank) recently

1. Charcuterie at Il Buco Vineria. Probably the best I’ve ever had.

2. Gorgonzola cremificato at Murray’s Cheese. Molly and I arrived early for our class so we went two doors down to the cheese bar. Yep, we had more cheese plus charcuterie…before a cheese class.

3. Banana tiramisu at Saranello’s outside Chicago. The chef said it was inspired by his mother’s banana pudding. Italians might scream ‘sacrilege’ but it was so delicious that I can’t make myself care.

4. Fennel sausage pizza at Nellcôte. Diandra and I got ours sans mushrooms.

5. I can’t stop thinking about this wine I drank during the class at Murray’s Cheese. It was so unusual and wonderful that I’m tempted to buy a case!

How was your weekend?

It was a beautiful – and gluttonous – weekend in NYC. After a work trip that took up most of my week, I was thrilled to get home.

Molly visited. It was so fun to meet her! We ate our way through parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn.

On Friday, we went big, starting with drinks at the Bowery Hotel. Our two bartenders were most charming.
