Here's a familiar looking group blog about food. And here's a strange one about not eating food. "You can eat if you want to; that's your prerogative... I used to play that game... I know what it's like... But I'm just not interested in it any more..."

a flood destroyed the crops of my favorite organic team at the Green Market but still plenty to choise from. bought 3 kinds of tomatoes and two types of corn and cranbery beans....

had lunch at the infamous Gundel (art nouveau building and restaurant since 1896) in Budapest today--very old world--but ok and finished with a 1964 Tokaj!!--the baths here are great, i dont think i will see much of the city besides restaurants and my hotels mineral baths (there are 140 mineral baths in budapest and my hotel/baths were also built in the late 1800's)

new absinthe in prague called T.H.C.--nice color too--most absinthe's here are clear green and suck flavor wise--this one looks translucent and may taste better cant find a shop open selling it--also in berlin we saw a super absinthe shop--looks like my favorite spanish brand has released a red colored one (why??)

Wiley has really done it this time. The white gazpacho and clam appetizer, new to the menu at 71 Clinton St., is quite possibly the greatest thing of all time. I'll try to get a picture next time, and maybe weasel some info out of the chef himself. Best bet: go without a reservation at 6:00 sharp, grab a seat at the bar, and order this app. Get out before the Upper East Side fully takes over. I guarantee you'll be licking the plate (bowl?) clean.

I admire from afar the world of fine dining and hate to muck up the page with my petty, pedestrian miseries but today coming off the roof to avoid torential rain I went to hide and dine at the neighborhood TacoBell and a notice on the door is giving me three days, Aug 13, to deal with the shutting down for renovation of my favorite eatery, I daresay, my shack of sustenance. Is there no end to the hardship? Speaking of hardship I contemplated the life of crime this morning at 6:20 walking the isles of a Save a Center grocery store, having already purchased my heat n' serve lunch (crawfish fettucine), I curiously wandered to the liquor isle to spy the single malt and this particular store had them all behind glass and key, and no wonder, with probably forty varieties, including beau coup Glenns, and a bottle of 18 year-old Macallan's, priced at $71. I became dizzy with desire and saw myself doing a bold smash and grab routine, but instead proceeded calmly to the checkout and paid for my banana, two glazed donuts, bag of peanuts, and the aforementioned fettucine.

wallse @ 344 west 11th st--super yummy--we ate every fish starter, some we asked for another right after finishing--i heard that the chef was so impressed that he came out to who we were, i missed that cause i was out in the other room bonding with the owner--the fish main's were even better--dessert were just ok but we didnt try enough--the meat dishes smelled and look good too and overall the dishes were light on the butter and very well flavored--worth every penny!!

A big chemical company wants to sell you an "all natural" solution to clean the chemicals off of your produce. I think this is what they mean by "synergy".
