Do you remember about my recent experience in New York City to participate in Kelly Ripa’s Cake Off For A Cause? As much fun as I had with that experience, one of the highlights of my trip to New York City was meeting the lovely Christine from Fresh Local and Best.
Mario Batali and a friend on the streets of NYC!
What’s great about Christine and I is that we are both local foodie advocates. She hails from San Francisco and is in touch with where her food comes from. She uses real food and let me tell you, she is not afraid of using and eating REAL FAT!! My kind of woman! In SF she was a gardener and she taught me the coolest thing while in NYC… she has a FIG TREE in her apartment!! A fig tree that she started in SF, brought with her to NYC and it produced 8 figs last year. She inspires me!
We had a blast! She started our evening by taking us to Chelsea Market. A market filled with vendors selling real local food.
