It’s hard to believe that the first annual Harlem EatUp! is already over. I was so amazed by the overwhelming support I saw from my friends and the Harlem community. Every moment – from the collaborative dinners around the neighborhood on Friday night, to the special chef demos and panels, to the delicious walk-around tastings in Morningside Park – was better than I could have hoped.

This event would not have been possible without the numerous chefs, restaurants, and artists, both local and visiting, who dedicated their time and talent. Special thanks to the many people who helped make this dream a reality: founding sponsors Citi and Ernst & Young and platinum sponsors Aetna and Macy’s; beneficiaries City Meals on Wheels and Harlem Park to Park; and CCAP, ICC and ICE for our culinary volunteers. To former President Clinton, Mayor Bill de Blasio, and former NYC Mayor David Dinkins – so thrilled you could make it, your presence and involvement with the festival was so appreciated.

I hope everyone who came had as much fun as I did…see you next year!

And here we go! Last night’s double elimination on The Taste was a rough one for Nigella and myself. High points for me were getting the competition going and feeling the heat in the kitchen, and low points was unwittingly choosing one of my own team members as the worst dish of the group. That wasn’t a proud moment, but things weren’t all bad throughout the episode. Here’s what happened: Read More
