New Yawk, New Yawwwwk!

By Ann | February 9, 2010

Hello and greetings from the the Big Apple!

Since I arrived on Friday, I’ve indulged in a cheap pedicure, feasted on lots of great food (spicy tuna rolls and tri-color rolls at Yama, housemade fresh tofu at En Brasserie — yum!), enjoyed an icy saketini, and spent a whole day eating nothing but toasted sandwiches (yesterday was panini Monday). I have also been so excited to be in the big city, I’ve forgotten to take photographs at every turn!

Kitchen Chinese is officially on sale today! I was thrilled to see it mentioned in the New York Post’s required reading column on Sunday. I was also honored and touched to have the book mentioned by blogger friends Camille of the delicious Croque Camille and Kathy of the adorable Kathy’s Red Door Welcome — merci mille fois, chères amies!

Tonight is the book’s big party at the Museum of Chinese in America — I’m making a noodle salad and have been up to my eyeballs in spicy peanut sauce! Check back soon for a post on the big event…

Finally, if you’re in Washington, DC and looking for ideas to ring in the Year of the Tiger, check out my post on the Washingtonian magazine’s website. I’ll be speaking at the Border’s on L Street tomorrow at 6.30pm and hope you’ll brave the snow to come talk about Chinese food!

    We also had a nice dinner at Craft Bar in the Flatiron District; some dishes were uneven, but my veal ricotta meatballs hit the spot. My food highlight so far: Hampton Chutney, on Prince Street, just east of Broadway. A great place for a quick hot lunch of dosas after walking around SoHo. And heat is important — it’s been awfully cold here!
