*UPDATE* did a little write up about me, click on the picture to check it out!
I have never won a thing in my life. When I played softball in 8th grade, I managed to hit the ball once all season, and somehow the ball boomeranged back, hit me on the shoulder and I literally tagged myself out. This past week my luck turned, I was the winner of Edible Manhattan's raffle for two tickets to the NYC Wine and Food Festival's Great Performances Farm to Table Table 100-mile Brunch. Did you know that 100 years ago people used to eat more oyster meat than beef? Yesterday's brunch was filled with all kinds of fun facts like this, but the best part of all was the food. Every dish tasted fresh and flavorful, and everything from the bread to the vegetables to the cheeses came from within a 100-mile radius of New York.
At our table bowls of Katchkie Farm pickled vegetables were calling our name, but the tangy mounds of carrots, beet and peppers didn't distract us for long. We picked up some refreshing basil infused iced tea at the juice bar and then headed over to the main buffet.
