First I went to the Culinary Institute of America where, after a tour of the gorgeous campus, I joined a real class and made fish chowder with them. It was a dream come true for me. The students and teacher were so kind, and wait til you see what they thought of my soup!
The next day I went to Damon Baehrel’s for a 15-course meal that blew my mind. Everything he serves — and he does it all on his own, from gathering to prep to cooking to serving to cleaning up — comes from his property. Everything. All the sauces, powders, seasonings… and even the three kinds of sap that I drank. You have to see the video to believe it.
And then last but not least I stopped by the Farm Box for some famous juice shots and then made my way to Crimson Sparrow for an incredible, seasonal dinner. Watch how I didn’t miss a beat, or a meal, even after the two previous days of gorging.
Should you be in that neck of the woods I highly recommend any and all of these places for your own #onetankadventure. These people take food seriously, and it shows. Everything is healthy, locally-sourced, and most important, delicious. I hope you’ll watch all three videos and let me know what you think!
