A few weeks ago, I blogged about the fact that former NY Magazine food critic Gael Greene and I had both created lists of funny, fake food trends for 2008. As I worked on my post, which included a link to her list, I also sent her mine.
To my surprise, she replied with a complimentary note just 15 minutes later. "Your predictions are wild and very funny," she stated, then mentioned that she would post an excerpt and a link on her website, and asked if I would do the same. Easy enough...I was already working on it!
Speaking of Bar Boulud, you should check out the menu, which got me all hot and bothered when I read it. I lust after cured meats and anything made with pork or poultry livers, so a place that specializes in charcuterie is right up my alley. And my little Vermont heart beat with pride when I noticed Jasper Hill's Bayley Hazen Blue on the fromage list (one of only two blues).
