The Sportsman Restaurant: 350 Years in the Making

Foodie TV is an App for your phone that features 5 new interesting food related videos every week.  This kind of App makes me feel kind of old.  That’s not its goal, but I think you have to be of a certain age to want to watch teeny, itsy-bitsy video’s on your phone.  I want to be sitting comfortably at home in front of my computer where I  have a bigger screen. I’m curious, am I in the minority here? How many of you watch video on your phone on a regular basis?

They have sure do have plenty of really good content and hire talented folks like The Perennial Plate.

Anyway back to this video.  It’s amazing how rich the food history of England is and how, for so long, if anyone thought of English food the thought bad things (smashed peas come to mind).

Now things are very different, The Sportsman makes me want to go to Kent just to have dinner!

About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note:
