New York Culinary Experience 2014

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). You will be enlightened by famous and well respected chefs (at least two dozen on the schedules) and get a sense of their personality as they teach you their recipes and you’ll meet individuals from around the country who love food and eager..

New York Culinary Experience 2013

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 for..

Best Memories & Meals in 2012

It’s kind of hard to wrap my mind that it’s almost the end of 2012. Time and life never takes a break but sometimes serendipitous things happen. (In relatively random order.) First thing in mind would be my graduation gift from the luxe chocolate and pastry brand, La Maison du Chocolat… A large Andalouise cake from La Maison du Chocolat My Andalouise cake from La Maison du Chocolat is something I never anticipated them gifting me and sending well wishes for my graduation from graduate school. This seasonal cake is intensely flavored of lemon pastry cream and chocolate mousse, chocolate..

Day 2 of New York Culinary Experience at The International Culinary Center

The final day of New York Culinary Experience at The International Culinary Center, co-hosted by New York Magazine was a bittersweet ending to this fun weekend. It was hard to grasp that it was Sunday. We’re all exhausted from cooking and/or baking our heads off on Saturday. (I couldn’t fathom how the chefs felt, who have to teach Sunday morning classes, after working on the busiest day of the week at their own kitchens.) We all made friends with other guests who attended this culinary weekend and made a connection with the chef with whom you’re a fan of his/her..

Day 1 of New York Culinary Experience at The International Culinary Center

Today was my first day (and first time) at the New York Culinary Experience at The International Culinary Center, co-hosted by New York Magazine was overall, simply amazing. Even though I had to get up at an ungodly hour on a Saturday morning to get dressed, caffeinated and hopefully manage to wield a knife by 8:30 AM, it was worth it – and most importantly nobody got hurt. This culinary experience was top notch from the start of basic necessity of (many cups of) Illy coffee with breakfast to the actual cooking classes with the chefs who are involved with..
