New York by FORK
Yesterday night I went with my mom to the WNYC Radio New York by FORK event at The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. The museum itself is on the Intrepid, an aircraft carrier built during WWII and docked on 12th Ave and 46th St. Inside the Hangar Deck there were tables set up with wines, cheeses, chocolates, breads, and so many more delicious goodies. I was too hungry to take pictures of the food. Please forgive me, I arrived hungry straight from work. My favorite things were the FizzyLizzy sodas in fuji apple, Divine Chocolate raspberry bark chocolate, and Tom Cat Bakery baguette. The highlight of the night was meeting Leonard Lopate, the host of The Leonard Lopate Show on WNYC. He always interviews the most interesting people, and I always feel more intelligent for listening in. I was fortunate enough to see him interview Mark Bittman, a New York Times food columnist who is the man behind some of my favorite recipes. In his own words he is a "home cook who loves food and writes about it."
