Subject says it all -- any ideas in NYC where they're screening the Royal Wedding over breakfast this Friday?
I probably didn't miss anything, but, seriously, what happened to it? Was it any good?
I'm on a hunt to find a decent cup of coffee in Fort Greene, close to Flatbush Ave. Any ideas?
She only visits once in a blue moon and it just so happens our team has a game on Saturday at 1. Anybody know of a venue where we could get a seat to watch the game and order some decent bar food? Brooklyn or Manhattan would be ok.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday to spend with my family because we get to show our appreciation and thanks to one another through food and our words (instead of gifts, like at Christmas time).
What kinds of family traditions do y'all have? In past years, we went around the table and let each person speak for what they've been thankful for in the past year. One year, I chose a Polish poem about graciousness (we're Polish). But I need some new ideas -- help me out!
Does anybody have a good recipe? Vegetarian, please...
Anybody know of a decent do-it-yourself beer brewing kit/box/thingy that I could pick up? And by decent, I mean worth consuming beyond the singular fact that you are its creator, but hey, it's for my pops.
It's gourd season, ya'll! That's right. It's that time of year when pumpkins overwhelm grocery store shelves and restaurant menus. And if there's one thing Chicagoans are crazy about, it's their pumpkin goods. Here are 7 pumpkin sweets we love in the Windy City.
One thing many home pizza makers struggle with is using 00 flour in a conventional home oven. For those that have overcome this hurdle, how have you done it? I have found 4 tricks that make it possible to use...
The crust is shortbread crumbs and ground almonds, which are complemented by a sweet almond liqueur-flavored mascarpone filling. The crowning touch: an Amaretto and cherry glaze that lightly coats a generous pile of fresh cherries.
http://drinks.seriouseats.com/2011/06/coffee-shakerato-eataly-ny.html I'm confused, what is this? Is this a dessert or a coffee? If you're already at Eataly, why not just get gelato and/or espresso? "Shakerato fiends" please enlighten me. I am honestly open to this, but I am suspicious....
Did you realize that Boone's Farm wine still exists? I hadn't come across it in years, and I tend to come across these things. But Wednesday afternoon I gave the liquor store guy a ten and got back $1.03, a disgusted glare, and the three sexiest-looking bottles of full-strength Boone's I could find.
simple and sweet...
The segue from ambrosial elixir to undrinkable muck can be due to something as simple as a mangled or misunderstood recipe, and as complicated as a gradual shift over time in the quality, composition, or mere existence of a necessary ingredient.
What happens when you combine Easter Candy with a Choco Taco?
On Saturday, March 26, BeerAdvocate and Sixpoint Craft Ales are throwing Beer for Beasts, a benefit event for the The Humane Society of New York City. We're really excited for the beers—at least thirteen brand new brews will be made just for this event. Each staff member is spearheading their own brew, in addition to a few collaborative efforts. We asked our friends at Sixpoint to fill us in on what's in the fermenters so far.
Few would venture to New Orleans' French Quarter for a burger, but if you're looking for a good one head to Coop's Place, a small bar and restaurant on Decatur Street that dresses up their burgers like po' boys.
It's no great secret that shrimp and chorizo love each other, so I knew that both of those elements would work. But I was most excited about the green olives, hoping they would add a briny bite to each fork-ful.
I know I don't comment a lot but I need the opinions of some serious eaters and for that, I know no better place then here! I am in the process of wedding planning and naturally one of the most...
I just wanted a reason to draw a dude tossing burgers into his mouth. [Illustration: Robyn Lee] New Yorkers, if you want an excuse to stuff your face with as many sliders as you can in five minutes for potential...
This week at headquarters, we got into the holiday spirit! There were hot cocoa tastings, cookie swaps, and 58-pound prime rib deliveries. Check out our week.
When it comes to chili, I am a man with opinions. I had my first awakening in college with the kind of strict, fundamentalist Texas chili that eschews both beans and tomatoes. For years I just assumed that was the final word on the subject, and I annoyed friends and relatives if any chili didn't meet those specifications. Luckily, I've lightened up over the years, and have come to even appreciate the Cincinnati-style chili that I grew up on. But vegetarian chili? Can such a thing even exist?
Serious Eats turns four years old today. How cool is that? Who would have thunk it. Four years ago, we launched Serious Eats hoping that serious eaters—people passionate about food—would gravitate to a site that made them feel welcome. A site where they could chew the fat with like-minded folks, about anything going on in the food culture.
Corvette Diner is all about fun first and food second. The restaurant serves a perfectly acceptable burger, but the main attractions are the atmosphere and spectacular shakes.
Homemade French Bread Pizzas...
Oatmeal should be celebrated everyday, but especially today. Because apparently it's National Oatmeal Day! If you're really serious about both oatmeal and fall, skip the normal bowl and eat it from a carved-out pumpkin. (Gross or glorious?) Whether sweet or the more risqué savory, steel-cut or rolled oats, oatmeal is one of our food best friends. Here are five ways to enjoy oatmeal on its big day. Grab your spurtle!
Have I really "done" anything yet? Should I be congratulated?
For me, Concord grapes are one of the highlights of early fall. Their fleeting season combined with their fantastic sweet-tart flavor and curious thick-skinned texture makes them exciting to eat straight off of the bunch, but even more thrilling when shaken up into this Concord Spritzer from Laurent Tourondel's Fresh from the Market.
There's been a lot of talk lately about the Sun Chips compostable bag—"the world's first 100% compostable chip package," the bag clarifies. Also, quite possibly the world's loudest. In a Wall Street Journal piece, the sound was compared to a revving motorcycle, glass breaking, and a jet cockpit. We wanted to get our ears blasted, so Leah went out and grabbed us a bag. Watch the video to see what we mean! But maybe not in a library.

CJ McD asked where my recipe for boiled water went. LOL. That was from the test phase of the new SE Recipes functionality. Anyway, here it is ... Boiling water is essential to many recipes. If you have never cooked...
