Yes, we are all highly anticipating the release of “Black Panther” in Black History Month!
I have known chef JJ Johnson for more than 10 years since he was the first chef at Nectar Wine Bar, an annex gathering spot to the then Harlem Vintage (not Vintage Harlem).
I have put the training in, and I am ready to suit up for Super Bowl LII! OK, so I am talking about food and not athletics, but do not get it twisted.
By now, it would seem I just cannot let go of 2017! This piece is my third (and final) reflection on the year that is sure to make another appearance in 2018.
I just returned from a transformative dining experience in East Harlem. I am still vibrating.
So often the holidays, and the end of the year for that matter, bring anxieties about family togetherness, false starts and unrequited goals. It can be overwhelming and paralyzing at times.
I do love Halloween—seeing kids both young and old getting into the spirit. I do my best to buy candy I don’t like to distribute for trick-or-treating. The problem is there isn’t much candy I don’t like.
Fall is finally here, Halloween costume planning is in full movement and Harlem Park to Park’s annual Harlem Harvest Festival is going down this Saturday, celebrating the harvest season.
Harlem Park to Park and the office of Senator Brian Benjamin hosted a news conference to highlight the success of the inaugural Harlem Local Vendor Program with Whole Foods Market.
…and the feeling was certainly right! Monday night, I along with chef Tiffany Minter and chef Aaliyah Baylor were the first all-female chefs for the Black Chef Series held at Blujeen in Harlem.
