Stiegl Grapefruit Radler

I've heard great things about this beer from friends in the Midwest, but I haven't spotted it yet. Anyone seen it in NYC?

Momofuku wedding cakes??

We're actually a cake buffet - three 10" cakes and three 6' cakes. So we'll have a lot of flavors - dulce de leche, carrot cake, birthday cake, chocolate malt, strawberry lemon (amazing!) and the chocolate chip. Strawberry lemon was our personal favorite and the one we'll be cutting. Can't wait!

Momofuku wedding cakes??

Yup, we're also having a Momofuku Cake at our wedding next weekend (!) and we couldn't be more excited about it. All of the flavors we tasted were amazing and when I've served their cakes before at parties, people always raved about them. It may not look like your standard wedding cake, but it will sure taste a whole lot better!

Bora Bora/Moorea Food Suggestions?

We are also going to Bora Bora and Moorea for our honeymoon in September. I'm glad we went with the dining plan, seems it's a good idea. Any other (more recent) dining suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Juice Question

Hi All,

I recently found a juice bar in my neighborhood that I've been visiting a few times weekly. I love the taste of their delicious fresh juices (fruit and vegetable) and I feel good drinking them, but I'm starting to worry about all of the calories. How do you fit juices into your regular eating habits - as a meal replacement or just in addition to your meals? I'm pretty athletic and more looking to maintain a healthy weight as opposed to losing weight. If anyone has personal experience with this, I would really appreciate it!

Thanks!

Magiesmom, I have a lot of beans and a lot of whole grains! Can you give me some ideas of the many different meals you make with them?

Looking for rhubarb - NYC

I've definitely seen it at Manhattan Fruit Exchange in Chelsea Market. I don't remember the price, but they are usually pretty reasonable.

Chobani?

Thanks all, I will definitely check out St. Marks Market and if I find myself on the UWS (or Redhook), I will definitely hit Fairway!

Chobani?

Hi NYC Hounds,

I'm a huge fan of chobani yogurt and I've been having trouble finding it recently. Associated only carries it sporadically and I haven't had luck at Whole Foods. Any other locations I should check? Maybe Food Emporium? I'm in the Union Square area, please help me get my fix!

November/December 2010 BCTM: READY FOR DESSERT: Cakes

GreedyGirl, you've reviewed the two cakes i had bookmarked to try - Racines and Ginger!

I can't wait to make one of these for family over the holidays. Any thoughts on which would be more holiday appropriate? I'm leaning towards the Ginger Cake.

Good to the Grain: Baking with Whole-Grain Flours, by Kim Boyce

I really enjoyed the olive oil cake as well, although mine got a bit crumbly.

Whatever happened to Green Goddess Dressing? [moved from General Topics]

This is my favorite version! I use it as a dip for crudite too.

“They’re like edible cocktails. People get smashed.”

The plums that I sliced before putting in the rum are also looking a bit weird. It sounds like I should just make use of the alcohol and discard the fruit. For my second batch, I made sure not to pre-slice the plums.

“They’re like edible cocktails. People get smashed.”

I recently deseeded a bunch of concord grapes for a grape focaccia. It was a project, but not too terrible. I sliced each one in half and then used the knife tip to scape out the seeds. All in all, it was lovely to enjoy the focaccia later without having to worry about seeds.

“They’re like edible cocktails. People get smashed.”

Thanks all, I just put up a batch with some brandy. I took the advice here and got something not too pricey, we'll see how it tastes in about January!

“They’re like edible cocktails. People get smashed.”

I've been thinking of making the plums and brandy myself, does anyone know a good brand of brandy to use?

Cookbook of the Month: Baking for the Holidays [DISCUSSION]

I'm more of a lurker than a poster, but I do like the idea of a baking book for the holidays. I have, and enjoy, Good to the Grain but it's can be limiting as most of us don't keep spelt flour on hand.

what to order at Back Forty

The onion rings are amazing - I think it's the paprika mayo that really makes it. I had some Fried Zucchini Blossoms there recently that were very good. My fiance always get the burger and enjoys it as well.

Don't leave without a Red and Black either!

Sunday lunch after Five Boro Bike Tour

I'm doing the Five Boro Bike Tour too... and I'm getting nervous about all those miles!

I'll probably fill up on pierogies at Veselka afterwards just because it's a favorite spot of my BF. Good luck to you!

There's also another location of Think Coffee now on Fourth Avenue at 12th Street. Very spacious and there's usually seats available.
