Hungry for Travel

For a magazine whose locavore roots go deep, Edible Manhattan gets around in their Fall travel issue.  Rachel Wharton heads to Dublin to chat with Manhattan chef Patti Jackson during her “Exile in the Emerald Isle” .  Thankfully, a recipe for the Irish brown soda bread they sampled – “sweet, dense, nourishing, heavy; the middle moist; the outside cracked and craggy” – is included so I’ll be taking my own virtual trip this weekend.  In a “A Locavore in Barbados”, Karen Karp gives a fish market-shark oil stall-maubey bark-Blackbelly sheep view of Barbados that will keep you dreaming until you can see it for yourself.  Traveling in time as well as space, they even get in a quick trip to Prohibition-era Havana which was proudly not dry.

Hungry for Frio-Frios

A few weeks ago, I set out to find shaved ice vendors on the Lower East Side for Edible Manhattan.  Not only was it early spring, but it felt like years since I’d come across the kind of traditional, wooden slat push cart I was hoping to find.  When I did set out to look for them one Saturday, it was the kind of  hot where the pavement trembles in front of you, so it was a very real relief when I met Andres Fabré on the corner of Clinton & Essex.  Last week I filmed this Edible segment for NY1 with Rachel Wharton of Edible Manhattan featuring Andres – all the assurance I needed that it was more than a mirage.

Hungry in Edible Manhattan

I always love coming across a copy of Edible Manhattan so I was thrilled when they asked me to contribute two pieces to their first ever dairy issue (March/April 2012). Tasked with finding the city’s best tres leches, all signs pointed to Daisy Lebron at  Bizcocho de Colores in Upper Manhattan. On what seemed like the only cold day this past winter, I made the treck to the opposite side of the island and was rewarded with an amazing tres leches (or two).  It was a treasure in a plastic clam shell.
