What's Coming, Down The Road...
So, we’ve been live now for about 80 hours. I’m sitting here, listening to Jackson Browne’s Running On Empty, just thinking about what a crazy week it’s been. Seriously, this launch has been amazing, and Mike Gibson and Gabi Moskowitz are truly troopers for getting things up and running so quickly.
Here’s what’s coming up in BrokeAss Gourmet, in the next three or four weeks.
1. Chef Challenge: This is where we call a supposedly bad-assed chef and give them 60 minutes, $20 and a 2-block radius from their restaurant. They are tasked with a challenge of re-inventing one of their best dishes on a BrokeAss budget.
2. Damn, That’s Kosher: Our monthly kosher column begins next week, and the recipes are awesome, easy and affordable. Why? Because they’re written by the one and only Robin Metz (a culinary program grad). One warning: don’t leave any nasty comments, though, because my mom will kick your ass. Just ask Jonathan Boxerman about the time she chewed me out in 1989 for not paying her back five cents.
3. Vegan Thursday: Every other Thursday, we’ll have a vegan post. Many of these are “hacked” restaurant recipes that we’ve made to be vegan, and some are also our own creations
4. Chefs We Hate: This is a periodic column about chefs that write totally useless, totally bullshit cookbooks. Their culinary ideas may be inspired, but their ingredients are usually unaffordable and their prep times are unmanageable. These are most certainly not individuals who will help you “close the deal.”
Thanks for reading for the last few days, and we’re looking forward to tons more of the feeback and love that you’ve given us.
