New York Culinary Experience 2014

[Translate] Last weekend, (not far after I landed from London), I attended the New York Culinary Experience 2014 at the International Culinary Center in SoHo, New York. As like my previous two years of participating in these weekends, this cooking weekend is always a blast. Certainly food filled (you will practically eat non-stop from morning to early evening).

New York Culinary Experience 2013

[Translate] Exterior of International Culinary Center; breakfast spread This is my second year attending to the New York Culinary Experience (NYCE) weekend and it’s an absolute pleasure to be surrounded with curious and avid food enthusiasts who are eager to learn something new or at least gain some insight or useful cooking/baking tips from different chefs. (If you’re curious about last year, here’s my recaps of Day 1 and Day 2.) I’ve noticed this year’s breakfasts were the sublime croissants that transports me back to Paris. They were perfectly burnished and incredibly flaky and buttery. I almost did not care..

A Brief Trip Down to Atlantic City – Showboat and Harrah's

[Translate] Atlantic City, NJ I had the opportunity to have a brief weekend trip to Atlantic City, New Jersey the past Friday. Then it was the classically hot and humid day when I left New York City and eventually it rained during toward evening unlike that gorgeous blue skies you see on this photo above on Saturday.

Inside the Foundation Room in the Showboat and snacks and drinks When I arrived to Atlantic City, I met..
