Beet Burgers

A tasty and cute amuse bouche served at Blue Hill at Stone Barns.

Here's the menu for the 8-course meal we had last night.  I'm pretty sure it was served in this order:

  1. Carrot Juice with Basil Shooter
  2. Vegetables from the Farm 
  3. Dehydrated Vegetable Chips (Smoked Kale)  
  4. Beet Burger 
  5. Homemade Cheese on a Brioche
  6. Garden Vegetables (Carmelized Leek, Ramps)  dressed 3 different ways 
  7. Sea Bream with Almonds and Fig, with a foam of something tasty 
  8. Fresh Pasta with Black Trumpets 
  9. Breaded, flash fried soft-boiled egg with a vegetable pistou
  10. Pork (Different cuts, loin, belly) served with greens of some kind 
  11. Yogurt with Grapefruit served with a ladyfinger
  12. Cheese crumble with fruit 
  13. Chocolate Cake with a birthday candle on it!! 

I must say it was fantastic....

Peep Dioramas

Crystallized moments, nostalgic, and DIY...oh, how I love a good diorama!  But integrate Peeps into the mix, and you've got entertainment for hours! Check out some of  the 2011 entries from The Washington Post's annual Peep Diorama contest here.
A few of my faves:

12 Angry Men

I thought about this movie when I had to serve jury duty about 2 years ago, on a case involving a crack sale, but, alas, the guy was found GUILTY, as charged!

Great film...
RIP Sidney Lumet!

Flash Sale: Kartell Chairs

Flash sale at Joss & Main for Kartell chairs... These are NEVER on sale (but you can get decent knock-offs, if you do a rigorous search!) If I had a place to put them, I would get these Philippe Starck Hi-Cut Chairs in White and Green...
