Wednesday, December 29th, 2010 | Posted under Bali, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Top Ten
When I thought about doing a Top Ten/Best Of series for this year, I thought that it would be totally easy. Yet when it came to food shots, I didn’t realize how hard it would be. How I can distill a half year’s worth of food blogging into ten pictures. Should I go with pretty food pics or my favorite experiences? Decisions, decisions, decisions….I just decided to throw in a little bit of everything: some of my favorite dishes this year, some new food experiences that I had and stuff that was just plain pretty (if I do say so myself). Again, all of this is in no particular order. Good food is just good food. Isn’t that right?
Burger from Good Stuff Eatery in Washington, DC
The Sweet & Salty Cupcake from Baked, Brooklyn, New York
I have said it before, and I’ll say it again: I think about these cupcakes all the time.
Breakfast fruit platter, The Samaya, Seminyak, Bali
Yes, I know that this is a plate of fruit, BUT it’s a PRETTY plate of fruit!
The “Special” at Babi Guling Ibu Oka, Ubud, Bali
Peach Tatin, Colicchio & Sons, Manhattan
The Rijstaffel at Chandi, Seminyak, Bali
Marinated Sea Scallops, Pickled Swiss Chard Stems and Aji Dulce Peppers
Gramercy Tavern, Manhattan
The lamb burger at The Breslin, Manhattan
This made me believe in meat again (sorta).
The Indonesian breakfast at the Samaya, Seminyak, Bali
A lobster roll from the Red Hook Lobster Pound pop-up restaurant at Fulton Ferry Landing, Brooklyn, New York
I hope Red Hook Lobster Pound does this again next year. This time, I think I’ll need more than one trip over there.
Do you have a favorite meal from 2010? Where did you eat it, or what did you cook?
