Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend! Just arrived back in NYC, and today is all about unpacking, working, and satisfying this uni craving I cannot shake.
I love the thrill of traveling frequently on assignment – it gives me this crazy adrenaline rush that last for weeks. The decompress time that comes after each trip is equally rewarding. And no matter what, I still tear up when I spot the Manhattan skyline on cab rides home from the airport. I’ve had more than my share of pinch me, is this real? moments this year. And hope for a bazillion more to come.
In the meantime wanted to share a new column I’m doing for Hamptons Magazine this summer. East End Sweets will run every Tuesday till Labor Day – all desserts! Last week we featured a behind-the-scenes look at the East Hampton classic, Nick & Toni’s. This Chocolate Grappa cake was easily my favorite on the menu – heady with grappa baked into the batter and poured over the dark chocolate cake. Devouring it straight from the oven was a pinch me moment as well.
