Profile Information

I am:
Hungry, a chef, a host, a helper, a producer, a little tipsy
I live in:
Manhattan
About Me:
I've been cooking since the age of 4. I'm now planning on going to cooking school. My dream has always been to have a salon where good food, wine and conversation were served up in equal measures. I'm willing to do whatever work is asked me to help produce a great experience- no work is too menial.

I am very interested in running my own supper club. Ideally, it would be one that would explore various eras and places, with food, music and performances. For instance, I would like to produce a Titanic-style dinner for the holidays, a sophisticated night in Weimar Republic Berlin, a night in a 1920's Shanghai club, a night in a 30's southern juke-joint, a Victorian-era tea dance, and so on. I want to provide people with a total sensory experience, even if it can't really be on the scale of places like the old Cotton Club and other places.

So, if you have an interest in history and food, if you play musical instruments or dance or simply have a iPod full of interesting music, if you've always wanted to make great food for a discerning audience the way I hope to do, please contact me. The email address is gothgirl@nyc.rr.com. I'm hoping to do a small event in October and see what kind of help I can get. I'm thinking of doing a very simple theme. Please stay posted.

Dim Sum, Saturday or Sunday

Mira, Evan and I are thinking of going on a buying trip for dim sum on Saturday, and then coming back to my place in Manhattan for a potluck. We would like those with an expertise in making Chinese cuisine to make some dim sum specialties to add to the store-boughts- I'm planning on making tea eggs (yum!) and providing some interesting tea. Is anyone interested in joining us? Which day would be better for you? If we do this on Sunday, it would have to be early, since I have an appointment at… Continue

What's in a name?

I'm trying to think of a name for my fantasy supper club. I thought of 'The Secret Kitchen Club' or 'The Hidden Kitchen Club'. I want something that is mysterious, and can fit with a changing food theme. 'The Secret Lounge' and 'The Hidden Lounge' also came to mind- I'm not very imaginative tonight. Any ideas?

Looking for fellow bento lovers

Before it gets cold, are there any people who would like to get together to make bentos and then engage in some outdoor dining, perhaps in a park? I'm a fan of Just Bento and Lunch in a Box, and would like to work on technique.



(Edited after receiving comments)



Perhaps it might be best to have a small class next weekend at my apartment on bento? I could show people how to put together a box based on Greenmarket items, as well as how to make a few simple things. then we… Continue

I'll be doing it at home- I'm near Union Square. Evening would be fine. I'm going to boil my eggs and set up my mise en place.

I love ALL good food, and my family is huge into Chinese and Indonesian. durian, natto, pig intestines, name it. :)

What time/where will you be doing your thing today? I'm doing some work today but if you're thinking later this evening, it would be very cool to connect!

That is cool you like bento. I have been cooking in the city about 6 years now mostly in Asian type cuisine. Let me know when you would be interested in cooking together or throw a party. Maybe I could give you some culinary advice. If it is easier my email is jtshen@hotmail.com
