Life by Chocolate

Chocolate, white, milk, dark, in all its forms forms life. Chocolate truffles, caramels, and other confections are at the core of enjoyment. This is life by chocolate because death by chocolate is the wrong attitude.

Ma Pêche: The second half of our trip to NYC for the Fancy Food Show

I am sure you have all been waiting for is my review of Ma Pêche, a new David Chang restaurant. I have gone to Momofuku and thought it was good (click here for reviews of Momofuku, Perilla and WD-50 back in '06.) (Click here for a list of great places we have eaten. It's an old list and will need much updating.)

I liked Ma Pêche. The goats milk butter, a la carte, sold Kim on the restaurant. That and the sweetbreads. (I have no pictures of the goat's milk butter.) I had a bourbon old fashion which was nicely made but I would rather have a rye old fashion. I drink bourbon manhattans and rye old fashions. Yeah, I'm weird but that is how I was brought up.

It was like eating in a Giant Peach. Not the best color for a restaurant and the art they had up wasn't very good, conceptual or not. The service was OK but not anything spectacular. It was efficient.

Kim had the pork bao (bun) which she liked.

I started off with the baby octopus. I can't find a picture of it. Kim had the sweetbreads. I liked them so much I ordered some for myself. She had them in a dinner portion, I believe, and I had the appetizer size.

I also had the duck, which I thought was pretty good. It was so book I had eaten most of it before I remembered to take a picture.

We shared an unknown side that they gave us. I forget what this was. Can anyone help? I can't find it on the menu. Pretty good.

We had decaf lattes and espresso drinks. All in all, one of the best dining experiences we had until we got to Petrossian. Petrossian blew everyone one else out of the water. We only had lunch there.

Next up: Petrossian and the rest of the Fancy Food Show pictures. (All of these pictures were taken with my iPhone 4. The lighting was very low.)

Sorry this took so long to answer. It's been a busy year. We do not sell our cakes retail or even wholesale. We only use them as desserts for the Hudson River Valley Art and Fiber Art Workshops. and However, if you go to you order #chocolates from us. They're organic and wonderful.
