tune in & win dinner at pok pok with executive chef & owner andy ricker
This Thursday, March 14th at 4pm, I’m teaming up with General Assembly and InsideHook.com to interview Pok Pok award-winning chef and owner Andy Ricker.
Pok Pok is arguably one of the most talked about restaurants of the past year, making appearances on many (if not most) high profile “Best of 2012” lists, including Bon Appetit’s 20 Most Important Restaurants in America, New York Times’ 12 Restaurant Triumphs of 2012, New York Magazine’s 10 Best New Restaurants, and, not to mention, a segment in the series finale of No Reservations with the no-bullshit arbiter of taste, Anthony Bourdain.
The interview will be streamed live from General Assembly this Thursday at 4pm EST. To tune in, simply sign up for free access to our chat and you’ll be automatically entered to win the chance to dine at Pok Pok with Chef Ricker on Thursday.
Feel free to email me questions you’re dying to ask, and I hope to see you guys online in a few days! – amy

coming march 2nd the return of “aporkalypse now” pork & beer fest
I love pork. Pork chops, pork belly, roast pork and pork buns are among my favorite foods in the world. Bacon, too, in small doses—preferably on top of mini cupcakes. While I enjoy medium rare steaks and a good roast chicken, there’s something about pork I cannot resist. When it’s cooked to a perfect tenderness and rimmed with just enough fat, no other flavor compares. Except butter, maybe.
On Saturday March 2nd, a group of celebrated NYC-based chefs will come together to prepare ten(!) pigs in various delicious ways for the second annual aPORKalypse Now festival. To pair with the pig-centric dishes, twenty local brewers will offer craft beers including “rare cask ales and special homebrews.” The event will be held at Alewife in Long Island City.
Each $40 ticket gets you ten pork dishes and ten beer tastings. Reserve your spot at aporkalypse13.eventbrite.com. (Sorry, you have to be at least 21 to attend!)
As a thank you for following this blog, I am giving away a pair of tickets to one reader. It will make an excellent Saturday afternoon date. To enter, simply ‘heart’ this post or reblog it. You can also send a message on Tumblr or email me. I will randomly pick a winner and contact him or her this weekend. Good luck!
