In light of the unnecessary stress imposed upon us before Thanksgiving, this will be an unusually short message. Next week we’ll be back to our normal mode of delicious recipes and more detailed updates on December’s events.
1. HAPA Fusion event: Thank you for all of those who came! Your involvement and support means a lot to us, especially during this busy month of November. All of the events we catered could not have been successful with you! The event was a great success; pictures should be up soon.
2. This week’s meeting is cancelled, due to, well, Thanksgiving break.
3. New Amsterdam Market: It happens roughly once a month and if you haven’t been yet, you MUST go to the next one on Dec. 20th. The best vendors in NY. I checked it out today and some highlights include: Sullivan St. Bakery, Porchetta (selling the famous porchetta sandwich), Luke’s Lobster (yes, they sell amazing lobster rolls), Taza Chocolate, The Bent Spoon (yummy artisan ice cream), Basis (butternut squash soup and the moistest pumpkin bread served with local yogurt and honey), and The Redhead (the last restaurant reviewed by Frank Bruni in the NYTimes, they were selling the raved bacon peanut brittle). And if there’s another incentive, you can practically eat an entire delicious meal from sampling around the entire market!
4. If you’re looking for a Sunday relax and unwind event, head down to Aroma Kitchen and Winebar:
Every Sunday from 5pm til midnight, Aroma Kitchen & Winebar (36 E. 4th St b/t Bowery & Lafayette) is offering four different food and wine specials at four different price points: For $10: Select from 10-12 of Aroma?s appetizers and light bites, including stuffed calamari, chatham cod ravioli, and warm beet salad, all for $10 and under. For $15: Sunday flight: 3 generous tastings of wine. For $25: 3 course prix-fixe menu including appetizer, main and dessert. For $40: 3-course prix fixe menu + Sunday flight.
This is it for tonight! Again, we’ll be back with a better edition next time, I promise =)
Have a good night and eat well on Thanksgiving!
