Although not necessary, you can RSVP for events if you wish.

Eating Around Queens

Eating Around QueensDavid, 2015-03-27 13:03

DavidLebovitzDining in Flushing Queens New York City-8One of the things about discovering new places to eat in an unknown city is that you spend a lot of time getting around, figuring out how to get from Point A to Point B, then to Point C, and so forth. Sometimes people are kind enough to suggest places that sound good. But when you look at the map, they’re an hour or more away. While the New York subway does go everywhere, when you’re used to living in a compact city like Paris, where if you miss a métro, there’s a very good chance that there’ll be another one in the next three minutes, I’ve been slowly getting up to speed understanding the NY subway system, including the complex weekend closure schedule.

While other countries and cities do have good, or great, foods from other countries, according to NewYork.com, there are immigrants from over 100 countries and more than 138 languages are spoken within the 109 square miles of this one borough.

NZ Champion of Cheese Awards 2015

26 March

Taste buds are weird. How I once upon a time routinely declined anything with blue cheese is unfathomable to me - now it can last less than a day in my fridge! We have a whole recipe section dedicated to cheese in our Italian issue of the magazine (out now), and celebrate it in this newsletter with news of the NZ Champion of Cheese Awards 2015 and a Beetroot Risotto made perfect with chunks of Gorgonzola Picante. 

Online Editor,


Glazed Chocolate and Roasted Nut Cake with Caramelised Plums (gf)

Rich, nutty and totally delicious! Serve with the plums or other roasted stone fruit, a berry coulis or just a glorious dollop of cream.

Beetroot Risotto with Gorgonzola Picante and Crumbled Walnuts

This is such a satisfying risotto. The combination of earthy sweet beetroot, fragrant thyme, pungent blue cheese and salted crumbly walnuts is irresistible!
