What was the local New York food scene like in 1938? A collection of archived photographs in the Museum of the City of New York provide some clues. From lobsters at the Fulton Fish Market to a fruit pushcart on a street corner, it's a fascinating look at our shared food experiences.
It is a while since I posted on the wine offerings at the Whole Foods Market wine shop in New York City. I first visited the store shortly after it opened in 2009. This week I went back for another glimpse, in particular to seek out some delicious but good value offerings around $10-$12 / bottle. I was more than pleasantly surprised.
The Hendrickson family moved into an old farmhouse in upstate New York earlier this summer. Their property is a project and their town has undergone some heavy flooding in recent weeks, so it was nice to see them catch a happy break this weekend as they took advantage of the fruit trees on their property. Have you ever wanted to press your own cider? If not, you will after this.
A few months ago I got a phone call from Eric Hopf, a long distance friend in Brooklyn. He was excited to brainstorm ideas he had been plotting with his girlfriend for a possible business venture in the vegan lifestyle. One Indie GoGo page later and he's already gotten a ton of accolades for the project: An all vegan deli and convenience store in the heart of Manhattan, aptly named Vegan Bodega.
We were lucky enough to get in touch with Jenna and Mark of Sweet Fine Day. Their quick recipe for a batch of sweet potato, pickled onion, and scrambled egg tacos is easy, tangy and induces a sweet fine morning!
Last week, Costco opened a 105,000-square foot store on East 116th Street. Which means we city dwellers can now shop like our suburban friends and family—for 5-liter bottles of olive oil and 18-packs of paper towels.
Of course, several of the articles we've read focus on the non-edible goods (Louis Vuitton bags, Rolex watches), but we're curious about the food. Is there stuff there that we'd appreciate, even though we can't store enormous jars of peanut butter?
We've got some thoughts, but we don't have a membership (yet). Which means we're hoping some of you have been and can report back to us.

We can't compete with Emily's photographs from the Hollywood Farmers' Market (we'll blame East Coast weather and inferior camera skills), but we do have a lot of beautiful Fall produce here in New York. We're most excited about pumpkins and squash. Have you cooked any yet? We've got recipes to get you going...
