Phew. I had a busy month. In fact, it looks like it’s going to be a busy month ahead too. I took a ton of pictures (around 4000) during my one-month stay in New York. Around half of that is food or related to food.
I stayed in Union Square in New York and couldn’t have asked for a better location. It’s always buzzing with some activity or the other and every weekend there’s a farmer’s market that is set up with the most lovely things to gawk at.
Fall is probably the best time to be around New York because you get to see gorgeous colours and taste unique fall dishes that just don’t make it to tropical tables.
I haven’t seen corn like this before (except maybe in some blogs long back). They were called Indian corn, but I have never seen then in India. Or maybe they mean the other Indian.
Freshly baked artisan bread.
Such a gorgeous crust!
Heirloom tomatoes. Tomato season was on in full blast so I saw a lot of different varieties!
Ostrich eggs, anyone? They are pretty expensive. $30 for 1, $50 for 2.
Mini bell peppers
Purple and yellow beans. They had the yellow kind in the office cafetaria one day for lunch so I tried them. They taste the same as the green ones, actually.
Fresh fresh fresh!
Poblano peppers and jalapenos at the back
Herbs are sold fully grown and in the pots so they stay fresh until you use them up. Ingenious!
I will be back soon with results of my “best cupcakes in New York” hunt and some lovely recipes I have had in my drafts for the longest time. Until then, please stay tuned.
