Meat Hook and Brooklyn Kitchen= Culinary heaven!

The Meat Hook and Brooklyn Kitchen in Williamsburg Brooklyn NYC. The Meat Hook brings local, organic, grass fed meet to Brooklyn with artisanal craftsmanship.  As part of the Brooklyn Kitchen, it’s really a one stop shop for all your culinary wants including mason jars, cast iron pans, pasta making machines, organic grains and much more.  They also offer classes and workshops to the public on the second floor. About 4 years ago when The Brooklyn Kitchen first started off I went to “The Basics” class. It was very informative and I had so much fun.

Now talking about the good stuff, MEAT! so far I have only tried the ground pork (which I used to make a delicious soup). It was so flavorful.  You know how supermarket meat is so bland and uniform, it seems removed from nature?  With meat from The Meat Hook, there is no mistaking that you are eating an animal.  It’s wilder, tastier, more flavorful, not symmetrical, not predictable.  This is one of the very few places in NYC besides farmers markets where you can get meat that is raised and slaughtered and butchered the way it should be. Need to go back to get lamb and pork chops and SAUSAGES. They have an amazing selection of sausages. The price point is relatively high, but the quality is so so worth it.

These products are already pre-packaged but still fresh. I didn’t take pictures of the butcher/deli area because it was very crowded the time I went.

I need one of these in my life ASAP!

This is what I got!

New Discovery

Yesterday, while walking through Chinatown NYC I came across a plethora of produce stands right under the Manhattan Bridge(Forsyth street). A variety of greens and herbs at insane cheap prices.As you can see from the face in the above pic, I was super happy!

I had 2 of these bags filled with green veggies and still taking a last look through the crowd to see if wanted anything else.

I went pretty early in the day. I was told that at the end of the day prices go down. Since they want to get rid of as much produce as possible. Can’t wait to go back and see what new produce I come across.

Simple things…

While on my way to Whole Foods supermarket for the 3rd day in a row (I know I’m sounding WF obsess, but going there makes me extremely happy), I walked by Sephora and was approached by an employee who gave me a rose. All Sephora were handing out a rose promoting Fragrance.org. This unexpected gesture made me even happier. It’s the simple things in life. 🙂

What unexpected gesture makes you happy?
