  1. Cauliflower is key to low-carbing. I also highly recommend shiratake noodles (made purely of yam protein) and Scandinavian Crispbread (almost pure fiber). Absolute must-haves!
  2. Another vote for the Peking Duck House..but that's the only thing worth getting there...

    Pepsi Jazz

    I haven't tried the Jazz line but I nearly died of a heart attack when I opened their pop-up ad in a magazine and got blasted with the unexpected music. Beware!
  4. My contribution to exotica: Lychee Passion 2 oz Vodka 1 oz Lichido Liqueur 1/2 oz Passionfruit Juice or Puree Dash Lime Juice. Shake all ingredients with ice and pour into chilled martini glass. Garnish with lychee nut(s)
  5. Bevmax.com has some very reasonable prices...I use them all the time..
  6. Ate at Craftsteak last night. The place is huge and stylish, in a great trendy neighborhood. My companion and I had the kumomoto oysters and the sweetbreads for appetizers, both delicious. The sweetbreads were tender, large, and perfectly cooked. Then came the cow. After endless deliberation, we chose a Hawaiian Grass-Fed Ribeye and a 42-day Ridgefield Farm Corn-Fed Premium Hereford Beef New York Strip (Dry-Aged In-House)...I mean, come on, how pretentios is that? Anyway, we would have forgiven the annoying headlines if these slabs of beef had any taste, but they didn't. The grass-fed beef tasted too much like grass. And the 42-day strip tasted a day too old. I ate no more than a few bites of my steak. The wild mushroom mix and fava beans, though, were good. So all you vegetarians with fat wallets out there, rejoice.
  7. I tried Leblon at the Bar Show in NY, and I must say it was really smooth. Made one of the best strawberry caipirinhas I've ever had
  8. I recently returned from a trip to Spain and I highly recommend Cal Pep, Pinxto (at the enrtrance to the Boqueria market) and Abac (which was very expensive but well worth it...get the baby goat...)
  9. Friend of the Farmer, that is brilliant!!!!!!!!!! Thank you!!!!!!!! BTW, I've had all kinds of lychee martinis all over the world. This one was different.
  10. Yes, I've done that. But there's no answer yet at the 888 number and I called several liquor stores in Ny and nobody has it.
  11. My husband and I were offered BBQ Rat-On-A-Stick in a remote jungle village of Thailand. I will ot divulge whether not we sampled any.
  12. Delicious aromatic juicy slippery rosy lychees. Yummy........................
  13. The perfect meal: Arugula Salad with Goat Cheese, Roasted Red Peppers and Walnuts with Balsamic Vinegrette Dressing French Onion Soup with Gruyere and Crispy Garlic Croutons Beef Wellington Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Torte
