Event Recap: That’s Amore, The Love of Learning Gala

Source: Baltimore Eats

On March 23, 2013, Baltimore Eats attended the South Baltimore Learning Center (SBLC)’s That’s Amore, The Love of Learning Gala. This black-tie optional event was held to benefit the SBLC’s programs that help local South Baltimore residents achieve a level of education that was at one time not available to them in the past due to differing personal reasons. The gala was well executed, from start to finish. And the speeches and presentations really had some extra special sentiment, with the speakers’ moving words even bringing a tear to the eyes of many.

 

Upon arrival, the registration ...

It’s been a while since my post about seasoning a mortar and pestle (you can read about that here). In that post I promised I’d show more about actually using it. This is not that post, but it’s the precursor. Before you can start pounding a curry paste, you have to prep your ingredients. As you’ll see in the video, Thai green curry paste has quite a few moving parts.

So why go to all this trouble when you can just buy a paste ...

New Beginning!

It’s time for some changes around here. My sabbatical is over and I haven’t lost my passion for ethnic food and dining. I’ve got lots of new things on the horizon. More ethnic cooking, more ethnic dining, more photos and even video is coming! I’m also working on a couple of events for the 2013 Atlanta Food & Wine Festival – more info on that is coming soon.

Event Recap: UNCORKED! 2013, “Baltimore Rocks!”

Source: Baltimore Eats

I was excited at the opportunity to attend Baltimore Uncorked 2013 with my wife on March 18th at the Baltimore Country Club. The evening was a fundraiser for Moveable Feast and the Foundation of the National Association of Catering and Events (NACE). I was a little unsure of what to expect from this fundraiser but knew it had to be good if it went from 5:00-11:00pm that evening. Walking into the country club it wasn’t immediately clear where to go but the polite staff guided us downstairs. As we got to the bottom flight we were met with walls of ...

Q and A with Marta Hanson, the Baltimore Urban Forager

Source: Baltimore Eats

Have you ever foraged for food? I’ve recently become interested in the practice, helped along by Marta Hanson’s great Baltimore Brew column, the Baltimore Urban Forager. In a city often known more for The Wire than for its green areas, it’s really interesting to think about Baltimore as a place to actually find food growing in the wild, rather than a maze of rowhouses and grocery stores. Martha’s columns about finding edible plants in the landscape around us have really inspired me, so in order to learn more about her and her practice, I asked her a few questions. ...

Charm City CSAs

Source: Baltimore Eats

It’s spring! Well, almost. Just a few more weeks until it’s officially spring (come onnnnnn March 21st!) but if you’re itching for warm weather as much as I am, there’s something else you can do to plan for the coming months: join a CSA! Having a CSA (community-supported agriculture) share is a great way to get your fill of local fruits and veggies (especially in the warmer months, but year-round) and support local Maryland farmers. If you’ve wondered about how and where to find one, I’ve done a little big of the leg work for you.

When you buy a CSA ...
