In The Kitchen with UrbanfoodGuy

Last week our friend Jeremy was going to come over to help us with our finances, especially Neil’s retirement investments which to us might as well be in Swahili for all we understand.  Neil has been traveling tons and Jeremy also is out-of-town a lot so I wanted to grab this one night we both had free to meet.  A few days before he came over Jeremy told me he was really into making videos and would I mind if he brought his camera.  At first I though this was odd, I thought we were going to talk about index funds or something like that?  I said sure and then wondered if I should prepare something, you know like I was about to film the pilot for my own imaginary cooking show (delusions of grandeur anyone?)  So I did a mis en place for apple date squares, a seasonal variation on the traditional date square so I would look prepared.

I had no idea what to expect.

We had fun and then a few days later Jeremy sent me this teaser video of what he had shot.  The music in the background was just the stereo which I should have turned off otherwise I think it’s great!

Enjoy 😉

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: urbanfoodguy@gmail.com

    Ha ha ha. You’re not recording this are you? I love this video and I think there should be an UrbanfoodGuy cooking show. I remember the Galloping Gourmet and you are much more charming. More video content, please.
