The Daily News, The Yearly Beast

supper_club-92It’s my birthday today! I turn a whopping 32. To celebrate, my cousin flew in from France and we’re spending the day learning to knit with our Auntie …seriously. As if 32 didn’t sound old enough, an afternoon spent sipping tea and knitting scarves undoubtedly did me in! But I’m also being taken on a secret date night, late night tonight, with a gentleman caller who insists he’s up for the challenge of surprising me with an evening of foodie birthday fodder. Your guess is as good as mine. Tomorrow I’ll throw a Black & White Burger Shoppe Birthday Bash at my friend Heather’s speakeasy chic Wall Street loft above the Burger Shoppe Saloon. As wonderful as all of this is, a birthday is still a yearly beast, an annual aging reminder, and in this case, my cue to whip together as many black and white recipes as I can think up. Any ideas? As you can see, I’ve already got the hat (and dress)!

Time, with family, with friends, with Taleggio (who also shares a birthday this week!) is the best gift a birthday can buy. That said, The Daily News offered up a close second this morning when they published a story on me and The Dinner Belle in their The Closer column. This food life of mine just keeps getting tastier! The article is a short little ditty, but it’s a first for me and the national press. Read it here and Eat it Up!

    Wow, little Kim is all grown up and quite accomplished! (I saw this item in Landi’s newsfeed.) Congratulations on what will doubtless be only the first of many such profiles, reviews and other culinary news.
