Dear Foodie: Chef Wannabe

10 Dec

Dear Foodie

Dear Foodie:

I have been trying to recreate things I’ve seen on T.V. and magazines.  I am getting better, but just haven’t gotten where I want to be with cooking.  Do you have any tips or can you tell me what inspires a Chef to do what they do with food?

Earnestly Trying,

Dear Foodie: I Messed Up My Holiday Dinner.

10 Nov

Dear Foodie

Dear Foodie:
2007 was the year of a disastrous Thanksgiving. I don’t know how I messed this up. I tried to fry a turkey and almost burned my terrace, I over cooked the green bean casserole and the only good but predictable item was a plain mashed potato dish. I am bored of traditional Thanksgiving food but scared to go exotic, in fear of burning my house down. Got any safe and unique Thanksgiving ideas?
Sincerely,

Dear Foodie: Can a Meat Eater Love a Vegetarian?

15 Oct

Dear Foodie

Dear Foodie:

I eat meat and I met a woman who I really liked (still do). Her name is K!*@+#! and she is a vegetarian. I didn’t have an issue with her eating choices but after falling for her seven months later, she breaks up with me because she can’t take my diet. Is it me or are relationships doomed for vegetarians and non-vegetarians? Should I have stopped eating meat for love?

Sincerely,

Dear Foodie: My Greedy Boss

16 Aug

Dear Foodie

Dear Foodie:

I work for a high energy, high stress art gallery in NY, whose name I will not mention. It’s so busy at times we barely have time for lunch but every time there is a business lunch, dinner, or food anywhere, I am excited and famished. I’ll order a juicy burger or steak salad (my favorite), just salivating when I see it.  But before I can sink my teeth into anything my boss will pick off of my plate before I have my first taste. Mind you, he has already eaten!! At first, it was ok but after a year of working and giving him bite after bite I think I’m going to lose it. How do I get him to stop without risking my job and my sanity?

Frustrated,

Starving Artist Continue reading
