Dark Chewy Beautiful Tender Edible Blossoms

Food

Chinese banquet food never thrilled me. Jelly fish and sea cucumbers I could live without.  But tree ears, those  dark, chewy, beautiful, black, tender blossoms, a  fungus grown on trees, now there’s a treat. And like many foods in China, mo-er mushrooms are said to have a medicinal value. They improve breathing, people said, circulation and well being.

Swirly, Sensual, Summery Soft Serve

Summer Fun

I confess, I am an addict. Driving up from the city,  my tastebuds begin to tremble with anticipation as I get onto Route 22 and approach the Red Rooster in Brewster. Happily, for my vacillating shape, it is a seasonal addiction. The desire begins to emerge just as the peonies begin to bloom around Memorial Day, just about the time the swirly white cones start appearing on flags everywhere.

Real Strawberries Are Sublime In Their Short Season

Food

I wonder what it would be like not to know what real strawberries taste like.  If you were alive before global produce, you might remember there was once a time when fruits and vegetables were not overblown like bodybuilders on steroids and when they were only eaten in season. In my neighborhood an old Italian man in a beat up farm truck with an operatic voice cruised the streets calling  into an old fashioned megaphone a long drawn out, “straw--berries, straw--berries for sale”  every day of that short luscious season in early June.
