Why should you cook with maitake mushrooms over portobellos? To help solve these pressing questions, we chatted with chef Brad Farmerie. Not only does he already feature plenty of options on his menu,

Though you’ve seen these Big Apple institutions before, it’s high time to fully appreciate their grandeur.

July is finally here and there is no denying the glory of the farmers market at this time of year, no matter where you live. For some areas, it's the official start of summer and beginning of their gr

Instead of another shot of bargain booze at the usual spot, try a specially priced cocktail, beer or small plate at these trendy taverns.

Drinking is fun. Here is where Leo Robitschek, William Elliott and Joe Campanale like to imbibe, plus some ideas on what to expect in your cocktails this fall: http://blog.forbestravelguide.com/3-of-new-yorks-top-bartenders-weigh-in-on-seasonal-drinking#cmpid=lcovington
We asked a trio of the city’s best barkeeps to tell us what they’ll be making and where they’ll be drinking this fall.

Nut butter morning, noon and night, right? Here are some fun things you prob didn't know about this super food: http://www.foodrepublic.com/2014/07/15/8-things-you-didnt-know-about-nut-butters
While the plastic jar of Peter Pan is hardly going out of style, some consumers have left the ubiquitous jars of industrial peanut butter sitting on the shelf in favor of a new regime of gourmet brand

Pot! Weed! MaryJane! Ganja! You name, here is the deal on how to consume it.
Marijuana and food have a longstanding association — too often as the setup to some predictable Doritos joke. Today, the culinary-cannabis connection is a lot more sophisticated. So, we sought the exp

Story
Introduction

As of last August I have been in New York City for nine years. I was born in Manhattan, Kansas, and as my mother likes to say, “You started in the little apple and now live in the big apple.” Of course my first few months would have a relation to food!  Lucky for me, my time in Kansas was short, 11 months, and then my family moved to Denver, where I lived until the age of 17.  From there I moved on to Berkeley, California with a head of bright blue hair and a job at a bakery.

Now, after traveling most of North America in my little 82' Subaru sedan and a backpack fueled stint in Europe, I live in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.  In between freelance writing gigs and tending bar, I find time to cook up a storm--I love food!  Which is one of the main subjects I  write about, as well as other arts and culture oriented stories, and this wonderful city has no lack of that! I have written for  New York Magazine's Grub Street,Serious Eats, The Daily NewsTime Out New York,  The New York PressMSNBC, The Brooklyn Rail, Zagat, and Edible Brooklyn.

In December 2008 I received my M.A. from the City University Graduate School of Journalism and am currently freelancing. However, I am seeking more adventure and greater stories, hoping one day to travel the world and write about the cultures I see and the food I eat.  No matter where I am,  I am eager to learn and grow in all experiences
