One week ago, on 13 October, Foodbuzz, Inc. officially inaugurated its food blogger community. Amid all the buzz, featured publishers from New York and New Jersey were invited to attend a dinner in their honor at Spice Market this past Saturday. What a perfect opportunity to indulge in two of my favorite pleasures: talking about food and, better yet, consuming it.
Jean-Georges Vongerichten's interpretation of Asian street foods brings together the flavors Vietnam, Thailand, and China. Dishes are served family-style to allow sharing. Everything I tasted ranged from very good to excellent. The red curried duck was a standout.
Pictured below are the menu and all the dishes thereon presented in order:
Special thanks to Foodbuzz's Ryan Stern and Devon O'Donnell, who flew in from San Francisco, and to Stacey Caron (Stacey Snacks) for organizing this spicy soirée. Greetings also to my fellow foodbuzzers who made the evening so enjoyable.
