Mulled Wine

Farm & Fable

via Boston Bloggers

Two of my favorite things in life are food and friends (family included). It’s a good thing that’s what my blog is about then, right? I recently had the pleasure (and am slightly late to the game in posting, I admit) of attending a mulled wine night at Farm & Fable put on by Boston Bloggers.

Walking into the shop in the heart of the South End, I was smitten by the vintage cookbooks and cocktail sets. Owner Abby used to be a litigator for product liability. Then she worked at flour and one of her favorite things is teaching. Call in the fact that  downstairs is an industrial kitchen set up and available for events.

For my event we were able to learn about and taste mulled wines. Mulled wines have existed from 35 BC in Egypt. They indicated status and were incredibly expensive. We were able to taste a version of the recipe from the Federation of Women Club cookbook.

Pursuit Boston

Seriously, I don’t know where time is going this year? I mean was it not just January? And the marathon just came to a close! Words can not describe the joy and pride that I have for my city of Boston and what better way to celebrate than having an American win the marathon this year. First man to win the marathon since 1981. Talk about an inspiration. It seems that time is flying as swiftly as Meb Keflezighi crossing the finish line. Recently, I had the opportunity to partake in a spin class for Boston bloggers at Pursuit Boston. I usually partake in more food and restaurant based events, but I have a undying love for spinning and couldn’t turn the opportunity down. If I didn’t already like the studio, I was immediately won over by the studio mascot and owner’s pup: Mr. Bojangles.

The spin studio is stadium style seating; I really enjoyed the mood lighting. The class we partook in was 45 minutes. I liked that it was this period of time. I usually do an hour class at BSC but it was nice to have a slightly shortened class. I felt invigorated and was still able to shower and immediately head to a dinner I had thereafter. I forgot a few things naturally, and Brittany was so amazing in incorporating items within the studio. If you forgot a hair tie, she had a jar. If you wanted earplugs, she had a bunch. In addition, she had all you could ask for and more to get ready, including towels. This was huge. If not, I would’ve had to resort to hand towels. Overall, everything one could need and ask for was thought of at Pursuit Boston. I ended up buying a package and can’t wait to be back now that I’m over my cold!

Food Finds

It has been a whirlwind of a week. There was a lot to do at work and I had a few events to partake in at night. Packed in between all that good stuff, I caught a cold. Not a good time, let me tell you. Nevertheless, last night I flew home to Miami to spend the weekend with my family for Easter.

I am so excited to try out 1826 Collins, Restaurant Michael Schwartz, and Baoli. I’m sure there may be a few others. You never know when you’re home! I always get roped into things, but, hey I don’t mind it!

As for food finds, this week was a good one:

Apparently uni is the new bacon.

I love watching TEDx talks. Do you? I watched this one which provided an overview on some of the problems with industrial agriculture, and later went into a discussion on ways to reduce dependence on it. It was run by co-owners of Boston’s own Mei Mei.

O Ya is coming to NYC

Some wacky Easter treats. What are you looking forward to this Easter Sunday?

A peak at Parla, an Italian speakeasy opening in the North End.

Pizza and…poetry.

America’s Best Brunch Spots — Boston and Miami on the list!

Did you come across any food finds this week?
