looking for a good food job?
In December, I met Dorothy Williams-Neagle, co-founder of Good Food Jobs in New York. We were both being interviewed for a food publication so we didn’t get the chance to chat, sadly, though we sat on couches across from each other. Before I had the chance to properly introduce myself and ask Dorothy about her work, I had to peace out to get to another meeting…
Thankfully, Dorothy followed up with an email to say hey (it’s so nice when people do that!) and we’ve been exchanging emails since. If you’re not familiar with the organization, check out the Good Food Jobs mission -
“Good Food Jobs is a gastro-job search tool, designed to link people looking for meaningful food work with the businesses that need their energy, enthusiasm, and intellect. We post opportunities with farmers and food artisans, policy makers and purveyors, retailers and restaurateurs, economists, ecologists, and more.”
This Friday, Good Food Jobs is hosting a job fair in conjunction with the Just Food Conference 2012. The Good Food Jobs Fair will be a physical manifestation of the Good Food Jobs website. Go to gain ideas for employment while meeting with real-life food businesses and potential employers. Talk with leaders in the sustainable food movement and ask questions regarding hiring and recruiting practices. Get information on how to volunteer, and learn about new initiatives and projects the organizations are involved in to propel the good food movement.
Entry fee is $15. For more info: goodfoodjobs.com/jobfair

more than panettone Lucky to be spending the afternoon in La Scuola at Eataly learning to make Italian desserts from food historian and cookbook author Francine Segan. I’m in love with the cover of her latest cookbook, Dolci: Italy’s Sweets, and would be lying if I said I wasn’t curious about what’s inside…
seemed appropriate to share this at 3:22am
Moving anxiety has made me an insomniac and my only consolation is that this means there’s more time to discover and share fun upcoming events, like the Brooklyn Night Bazaar happening in Williamsburg this Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I need to get my holiday shopping did (and get some sleep).

This Saturday, New York’s “all brunch resource” Brunch Critic is hosting its signature fall event celebrating our favorite weekend meal!
Join Andrea Pappas, the lovely founder of Brunch Critic, and enjoy brunch-inspired small plates provided by restaurants L’Artusi and ellabess, unlimited cocktails (naturally) and music. I’ve been told there will be lots of Hendrick’s Gin, Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur and more. Buy your tickets here: orangeyouglad.eventbrite.com
Meet my lovely friend Emily Cavalier of Mouth of the Border! We’re at the one-year anniversary party for Food+Tech Connect and, as it turns out, tonight is one for wine, dry freeze ice cream created by a razor, a shiny knife, filling up on oysters (15 and counting) and learning to shuck them. Previously, I thought all you had to do was dig, but tonight I realized there’s an art to it and it’s slightly trickier than it seems. Pictured above is Emily’s first victim.
Earlier today I attended the press preview for Singapore Takeout where attendees got to sample traditional Peranakan (Malay and Chinese) dishes like laksa and a tasty beverage that combined chai tea with orange juice.
Singapore Takeout is a pop-up restaurant that’s traveling around the world in a big container, making stops in nine cities including London, Moscow, Sydney and Dubai.
If you’re in New York this weekend, visit Gansevoort Plaza in the afternoon to sample dishes prepared by chefs from Singapore’s own Candlenut Kitchen. For more info and tickets, check out Your Singapore and Singapore Eats on Facebook!
