Health, Hedonism & All the Delicious Things In Between

For those of you who didn’t see my newsletter a few weeks ago, I made the (possibly crazy) decision to start hosting monthly group cooking classes in my new DUMBO loft. After 4 years of running around the city teaching privately (not to mention 4+ years of studio living), it’s very excited to finally have a big beautiful kitchen space on the premises. The whole venture will certainly be an experiment at the beginning, so I’ll be relying on word of mouth while I perfect the new format. And I would LOVE to have some virtual friends in the mix. If you’ve been wanting to brush up on your knife skills or learn a few new recipes for healthy comfort food live and in person, I hope you’ll join me at one of the April or May sessions below!
I’m so excited to be one of ICE’s guest instructors this winter! If you’re in the New York area and want to learn some new healthy, gluten-free recipes, join me for a Gluten-Free Mexican Fiesta on 2/2 or Super Food Feasts on 3/2. Would be very fun to see you there!
Monday I’m hosting a live chat on Tivamo in support of Feeding America. Join me at 5:30 EST and ask me all your burning gluten-free cooking questions! Here’s the link to RSVP for the free broadcast.
It’s been a while since I did a snapshot post, probably because I worry that those of you who follow me on instagram are already sick and tired of me bragging about my adventures in pilaf and pork fat. But I attended a particularly awesome event last week that was all about amazing women, the power of connection, and the ability of great food to fuel both under one roof. The dinner was thrown by ElevateGenY and 3WCircle—two new women’s organizations that are trying to motivate and inspire 20 and 30-somethings to pursue their passions. I’m a sucker for women. When I’m around communities like these, I can feel my cynical New York self melt away into a puddle of warm, fuzzy feelings faster than a mojito popsicle on a warm summer day. But the highlight for me was getting … Continue reading
I’m participating in a wonderful charity baking auction today! All the info is above. Make sure to pop on over to the Echoing Good facebook page to bid on some delicious treats prepared, packaged, and mailed my some of your favorite bloggers…like…uh, me?? I’ve got this trail mix up for grabs.
I can’t believe the Chef Race: UK vs. US 2-hour season premiere is only hours away! The heart palpitations have begun, so I’m going to spend my day in the kitchen distracting myself. I’m making chili and cornbread for my real life team of friends, who are going to be feeding me alcohol and providing other types of moral support in spades as tonight’s show hits the small screen. Since I can’t fit all of you into my small studio apartment to watch with me, I’ve put together this virtual viewing party potluck with lots of fabulous bloggers from around the web who shared their favorite American dishes below. Included are my television teammates, who I’ve been introducing you to this past week. As we learned from our crazy travels across the country, American cuisine can be just about anything. … Continue reading
I’ve been pretty elusive about why I fell off the grid for two months this summer. It was kind of strange to give birth to Feed Me Phoebe and then leave it shuttered for many more days than it had been alive. But it was a necessary hiatus – one that involved a cross-country food and media adventure. I may have mentioned as much a few months ago before I left, but that was putting it mildly. The trip was filmed. There was $100,000 at stake. It involved 8 British chefs and 7 other Americans. We started on the Santa Monica pier with no money in our pockets, and just our knives and cooking/hustling skills to get us from city to city, and to trade for food and shelter. The cat’s officially out of the bag, so you can read … Continue reading
Welcome to Feed Me Phoebe, my new virtual home away from home! Kick your feet up on my coffee table, grab a pint of ice cream and a spoon, and stay a while. This is where I’ll share my kitchen confessions, semi-healthy recipes, snap shots of my professional cooking world, wacky party ideas, and all the ways I get by with a little help from my friends. There will be a hint of this and a dollop of that. Sometimes things will get saucy, but I’ll try to avoid TMI, keep it PC/PG, and abbreviate whenev possible. Oh, and check out my jars! (I’d show you my jugs, but I’m trying to keep my promise above.) They are my new obsession from Anthropologie. In addition to providing a home for my last handful of pistachios and 5 random types of … Continue reading
