Update to The Experimental Gourmand

If you’ve dropped by the website lately, you’ll notice that the site looks a bit different these days. Sadly, there’s been some technical issues. The webhost I’ve used for the past eight years did some updated to their system which ended up causing a conflict with the theme that I’d been using. So, nothing was working with anything else anymore. The format you see is a temporary one while I rebuild the entire website, which I hope will be done in time to re-launch the site in early 2021.

Sugar Hill Creamery opens in Washington Heights

In the meantime, if you follow me on Twitter and Instagram, you’ve seen that I haven’t been idle, even during these COVID-19 times. I’ve been cooking, creating new recipes, making old favorites like this Bolognese Sauce, and checking out a few new food places, and exploring my neighborhood of Washington Heights in Upper Manhattan, New York.

Buon appetito!

2018 Food & Drink Conferences Listings
