Lust I can’t fathom how no one notices my desperation. Primal urges are hard to conceal. I must get my hands on you. Now I am famished. Wanting. Wanton. I finally have my way with you privately, after the others have left. I won’t have them seeing me like this, so out of control and needy. You eat me up inside, all the time. Not it s my turn. I devour you. (Appetites by Trish Cook, excerpt from Graze issue 3) Nowadays, it seems like food blogs fall into either one of two categories: recipe porn or restaurant porn. I’m either looking at glamorous photos of homemadeRead More →

By now, I’ve realized that I don’t attend galas or charities to mingle and socialize. Like most media, I weave through the crowds in sub-par attire, camera in one hand, plates of food in the other. And it suits me perfectly, as I’m far more inclined to dote on food and entertainment than I am with conversation. But after several galas or so, they all start to blur together; you see the same chefs, the same sliders and ceviches, the same “young philanthropists” sauntering about in dresses shorter than their cocktail straws. You forget what charity you’re supporting, and you definitely forget what you woreRead More →

The smoky aroma of charred, griddled meat is the only thing separating my agnosticism from full-blown atheism. Even the slightest scent of carne asada or a Double Whopper sends me into an euphoria-induced fervor that somewhat resembles a mild panic attack. In fact, the only thing better than grilled meat is grilled meat enshrined between two pieces of bread. Like great women, meat sandwiches come in all shapes and sizes, but rarely do they disappoint. Last week, I was feeling hard-core rebellious and decided to try out a Philly cheesesteak at Monti’s, an off-the-beaten-path neighborhood bar near Lincoln Square. With neon window lights and redRead More →

“We don’t take ourselves very seriously,” Chef Moya of Sobremesa Supper Club tells me, smearing a dollop of whipped queso across an ivory plate. The strong aroma of pickled daikon permeates the small kitchen as I sip on the last of my carrot ginger soup, topped with a foamy coconut broth. Sporting red jeans and nursing his second bottle of Stella Artois, co-founder Efren Candelaria tells me that he used to hate pickled daikon. It’s the smell, he says. But now he pops these beige, coriander-infused slices into his mouth like kettle chips. Sobremesa Supper Club is a “vegetable-forward, Latin inspired, and locally sourced” dinner pop-up thatRead More →

René Rezepi’s A Work in Progress begins with an essay by fellow Dane Lars Ulrich of Metallica, who wrote the following in response to the question “What is Creativity?”: “René belongs to a very small group of unique creators. People who have turned their particular niches completely upside-down. Reinvented and redefined them. The Unafraid. Whether it be Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Charlie Parker, Beethoven, the Beatles, Cecil B. DeMille, Francis Ford Coppola, Quentin Tarantino, Jack Kerouac, James Joyce, Hunter S. Thompson, Steve Jobs, Stephen Hawking, Marlon Brando, the list goes on depending who’s composing it…but no matter who’s on that list, or how long it is, RenéRead More →

  Cook-offs embody two of mankind’s most beloved things: food and competition. Chicago Reader recently held its Key Ingredient Cook-Off at the Museum of Broadcast Communications, and a portion of the proceeds went to Common Threads (a.k.a. Art Smith’s charity for kids). Participating gladiators included Chris Pandel from The Bristol and Balena, Dana Cree from Blackbird, Abraham Conlon from Fat Rice, Jason Hammel from Lula Cafe, Meg Galus from NoMI, and Mark Steuer from Carriage House. These renowned chefs were asked to cook with esoteric products such as chestnut and sheep’s milk, and diners voted for their favorite dish in each ingredient category. I was personally impressed by the creativity and tastiness of these dishes: NOMI: Sheep milkRead More →
