Still learning as a chef, I love food and being around people who do as well. In my spare time, I am developing two book projects - one a feminist cookbook and the other a history of the NYC restaurant culture with a focus on female chefs. Anyone with suggestions for either of these projects is welcome to contact me.
Also, I have started a blog about experiences working a public line called Buffalo-Chicken Moments. Check out the link below, comment, and follow. I am honored for anyone sharing their time with me.
Just noticed your question of a while back about female chefs in NY. Off the top of my head, (relatively) recent year chefs worth looking into would include Sara Jenkins, Anita Lo, Gabrielle Hamilton, Mary Redding, Lidia Bastianich, Claudia Fleming, Anne Rosenzweig, and Debra Ponzek. Not sure if you still wanted feedback on this and most likely you've already come across these names!
I am a fine dining chef and am trying to start a new underground restaurant called www.SOYLENTFUCHSIA.com. I need the support of local foodies. I have a dinner party planned for 6/27 and need you to attend. Be the first to experience my new style of fine food made from only the finest local and organic ingredients. I am bringing elements from molecular gastronomy restaurants like Alinea to an intimate and relaxed dinner party setting. I will prepare an amazing multi course menu using Sous Vide and will explain the modern techniques between courses. Tell your friends about my new adventure in culinarian. It will be the best way to spend the weekend evening with friends and converse with like minded people. BYOB means you can enjoy an evening out and won’t be over charged for drinks like other places. Please support the local economy. Thanks, Andrew Curtis Forlines
