Best of Philly


By some magnificent stroke of luck, a Philadelphia Magazine writer e-mailed me a few months ago, telling me that she wanted to feature me in an article. The article came out in the latest of Philadelphia Magazine- the Best of Philly edition, and though the article isn't solely about me, I'm interspersed throughout (including the end quote which is my fav part). I think it's a great article and I'm really quite honored to have been featured.

As if it couldn't get any better, I also won the Best of Philly award for "junior food blog"!!!! And though I certainly wouldn't describe my mom and dad as "indulgent parents, who buy him expensive pans and gourmet ingredients" (they don't), it's freakin awesome to get the award!

Check out the article here. Thanks Amy Korman! Stop by for a meal sometime.

You. Are. Adorable.

Unrelated ... kind of. Was watching a food competition on the Food Network the other day with kids competing for a full scholarship to a fancy chef school and I wondered when I might be seeing you on something like that. :)

With all the birds flapping their wings out there, it's great to see a real eagle stand tall.

Congratulations, Nick.

Eight hours? Did they miss a 'teen' off somewhere?

Unbelievable...it has been such a priviledge watching you come in to your own like this. I've always had such respect for you and your thoughtful approach to food, it is so much fun to see others taking note! A book deal?! Tell us!!

It's funny...I was in NYC with my dad 2 weeks ago and we went to a wine bar right next to Per Se! As soon as I saw it I said, "*Gasp*! Per Se! I've been reading about this place on a food blog!" Sure enough, the $275 prix fixe menu was there!
