Wont forget my first jet lagged morning in New York. Hungry as hell I stomped towards Soho in need of the Apple shop and sustenance. Fanelli’s menu in the window was a beacon of caffeine, eggs and home fries. Service was prompt and the coffee was bottomless. Maybe not the best ever, but who cares when the space is this gorgeous and my appetite this big. Been there? What you think?
Walking through New York on a cool Autumn Saturday afternoon, there are plenty of street food markets that reflect the colour and flavour of the season. After brunch at the Breslin Bar and Grill in the new Ace Hotel, we went for a stroll downtown, and came across these dudes spit roasting this unlucky organic lamb. Rubbed down with delicious herbs and spices, lamby was succulent and spicy, and perhaps the best I have ever nibbled on. The boys responsible for this cremation save the head for themselves though, it’s their favourite part. You’ll always find them there on Saturdays.
A Cannoli on steroids? Yes indeed, this is the NY version of my favourite Italian crispy, creamy pastry. Yes it was delicious…but not like the original Italian inspiration for this evolved New York variety.
Wild, crazy, gorgeous, kooky pumpkins! So inspired and so many of them at the Chelsea market in New York this week. Here’s 10 of my favourite. Get yer tools out and start making like the Americans and carve them pumpkins ready for Halloween. Which is your favourite?
Oh heavenly little cake, you make my heart sing and my belly swell.
I love you!
