Ultimate Foodie Day/Night continued...

Tuna belly is the big piece lower right.

I thought my ultimate foodie day/night was over, it started with the wine crush at Harvest, and was seemingly over at the Cookery's Cooktober fest last night, at Captain Lawrence's Brewery but turns out there was one more edible delight to
be had. This morning my landlord Vinny shows up and announces(no, the rents not due yet) "bring a plate, just got back from tuna fishing, here are some tuna steaks, and would you like some belly too? " Ha! will be cookin tonight.

What's your Ultimate Foodie Day ?

Autumn in the Northeast is certainly one of the most beautiful times of the year. In the lower Hudson River Valley the foilage along the Palisades Cliffs was an explosion of colors.

A perfect beginning for the ulitmate foodie day. The wine crush event held at Harvest on Hudson, Hastings-on-Hudson NY

Harvest on Hudson
The soft breeze out of the North carried upon it the acridly sweet scent of fermenting grapes

and the smokeyness of burning charcoal embers atop the CajaChina box.

Inside, good friends raised a glass toward the future and toasted the past. Owners Bruce Bernnachia and Angel Libertore of Harvest on Hudson put out an inspiring array of food. There was roasted pig, rabbit, goat and steak as well as pastas and cheeses.
The focal point of this event was the pressing of the grapes. 

Bruce enveloped in smoke.

Chariot of Fire: Building a Mobile Wood Fired Oven

I'm happy to admit that I've eaten my fair share of pizza over the years. Recently I've become a fan of wood fired pizza. Perhaps its the intense heat that forms a perfect crust, or the slightly smokey flavor, either way I'm a big fan. Here is a story about the creation of a mobile wood fired pizza oven commissioned by my good friend Chef David Dibari and oven builder Peter de Jong of Fired up Kitchens.    Like us: www.facebook.com/thecooksplate
