Foodbuzz 24×24: An Ides of March Dinner Party

March contains one of the most famous ill-fated days of the year: the Ides. Before 44 B.C., the Ides was actually a festival day. For this month’s Foodbuzz 24×24 (highlighting 24 unique meals occurring worldwide in 24 hours) my friends and I went back in time and sat down to enjoy an ancient Roman-inspired meal to observe the lighter side of the Ides. It might not have been quite fit for an Emperor, but we certainly enjoyed ourselves.


Berry-Stuffed Mochi, Baking for Japan, and a Tea Party Takeover

This post is for charity – times two!

First, I’m thrilled to be working with Lillian from Sweets by Sillianah and Sarah from Fritos and Foie Gras – and a host of other generous-spirited NYC blogger-baker-volunteers – to put together an April 2nd inter-city Bake Sale for Japan.  Proceeds from this effort, conceived by Samin Nosrat , will go to New York Times-suggested charity Peace Winds Japan.  If you’re in the city, you should stop by our table at Brooklyn Flea!  You might be able to snap up some of these:
