In case you missed it on Saturday, Finger on the Pulse (the twin team of Darin & Greg Bresnitz) brought a dance block party with food and music to City Winery. The sun was scorching and so were the grills of 10 notable NYC chefs, who almost all made an appearance. You may have heard of them: Sam Mason (Tailor / Empire Mayo / Lady Jays), Phillip Kirschen-Clark (Vandaag), Christina Tosi (Momofuku Milk Bar), Sam Talbot (Imperial No 9 / Surf Lodge), NoahBernamoff (Mile End), Thomas Kelly & David Schillace (Mexicue), Jenny McCoy (Craft), Tim Sullivan (Jazz at Lincoln Center's Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola), Daniel Holzman (The Meatball Shop) and Oliver Kremer & Tyler Lohman (Dos Toros).
What makes the food stellar? Only that they will be the creations of 10 standout NYC chefs: Sam Mason (Tailor / Empire Mayo / Lady Jays), Phillip Kirschen-Clark (Vandaag), Christina Tosi (Momofuku Milk Bar), Sam Talbot (Imperial No 9 / Surf Lodge), NoahBernamoff (Mile End), Thomas Kelly & David Schillace (Mexicue), Jenny McCoy (Craft), TimSullivan (Jazz at Lincoln Center's Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola), Daniel Holzman (The MeatballShop) and Oliver Kremer & Tyler Lohman (Dos Toros). Not too shabby.
Let’s take a minute and learn about a stick-to-your ribs dish hailing from our neighbors to the north, Quebec, Canada. Poutine is French fries doused in hearty gravy and sprinkled with fresh cheese curds. This may sound like a simple dish or it may even sound unappetizing, but do yourself a favor and never say that to a Quebecer. You see, poutine isn’t just French fries but it’s comfort food for Quebecers. It was voted the national dish of Canada by Globe and Mail readers. It’s also the go-to snack after a night of serious drinking. Nothing like greasy, cheesy fries to soak up the alcohol.
