By admin | February 28, 2012

YMCA

It’s official! I’ve teamed up with George Oliphant to redesign the kitchen of the New York City YMCA and we’ve wasted no time; construction is already underway! That’s right, I’m joining George and his crew at the George To The Rescue Show to offer the NYC YMCA some much-needed help!

I stopped by yesterday with George to get our first look at the kitchen and help come up with some great ideas to not only renovate the YMCA kitchen but also help encourage the kids in the program to eat healthier.

Check out a quick sneak peek below of my visit on George To The Rescue and don’t forget to look out for our episode of George to the Rescue airing Saturday, April 21st at 10AM on NBC. Read More

My Visit to The Nate Berkus Show

The Nate Berkus Show

Last week, I had a great visit to The Nate Berkus Show. Nate and I spoke about one of my favorite classic traditions-brunch! I shared with him some simple recipes for some ultimate brunch dishes.

We prepared a simple yet very flavorful Apple and Pancetta Potato Pancake with an Asian Balsamic Vinaigrette. And let’s face it, you can’t have brunch without a great cocktail, since it’s the best excuse to start drinking early. So I also made a great Brunch Punch, that included red wine, cognac, orange juice, and bitters. Potato pancakes and punch- two awesome brunch treats! Read More

HBO Presents “Brave New Voices”

By mahir | October 22, 2010

Last Sunday, my team and I had the pleasure of preparing food for and attending HBO’s premier of “Brave New Voices”, a show devoted to young poets competing in the Brave New Voices national poetry slam competition.

It was so inspiring to see these youngsters pour their hearts and souls into their craft and we had the pleasure of hearing a few perform live for us at the HBO screening room. After the screening, we all mingled over some fish tacos, prosciutto date cigars and mini red velvet cupcakes.
