Our Food Curated piece is up on the Huffington Post! If y’all could be so kind as to go post a comment on it, it would be super-duper dope of you.
WE ARE ON FOOD CURATED!!!!!
I can’t tell you how ecstatic this makes both of us. Liza de Guia is in our mind one of the greatest talents in food, albeit behind the camera. We are so utterly honored that she spent a night with us in our kitchen, and amazed that she was able to edit over 6 hours of us babbling incessantly into six of the most beautiful minutes of food video we’ve ever seen. After you watch it, head over to the Food Curated website and check out all of her other videos- it’ll make you fall in love with food all over again.
We are having one of the most spectacular weeks of our lives over here! First, if you follow our Twitter, you’ll have seen that we spent all of Tuesday at beautiful Terhune Orchards and Farm in Princeton, NJ, and we brought home a ridiculous amount of delicious local produce for cupcakes! Our sons Atticus and Toby picked over 80lbs of apples which we are turning into apple cakes and apple butter, both of which are featured this week. We also used this field trip as an excuse to go to The Bent Spoon and grab tons of ice cream, as it’s without question our favorite artisan food shop in the entire world. If you ever have a free day and a car, you must make the trip down there- it’s the greatest food experience I have ever had in my entire life.
Then tonight, we were joined in the kitchen by the amazing Ms. Liza de Guia, who shot a piece on us for her James Beard nominated series FOOD CURATED! We are both huge fans of her work, so it was an amazing honor to have her profile us (not to mention, she’s just such an awesome chick to hang out with). So in honor of her visit, we created three new flavors to debut this week! I am especially in awe of how delicious the butternut squash came out (made with local squashes courtesy of our friends at the Greene Harvest CSA), so you need to try that one.
And finally, we have gotten word that the McRib is back! This has absolutely nothing to do with cupcakes, or is remotely good for you, but we’re still going to hit up McDonalds and devour them like it’s 1988. Go McRib!
And now- this weekends flavors!
