Rappin Ass Thursdays #37

Posted on Jun 10th, 2010 by Nick Catchdubs

Sorry I skipped two weeks y’all. But in that time, no shockers. Kanye, Ross and Jeezy still the hardest shit out (honorable mention to Vado: slime, it’s your time!), Drake album has its moments inbetween interminable amounts of r&b self-loathing, Eminem “comeback” LP 100% unlistenable – and I’m not trying to hear it about the production credits, I love Just and Khalil’s shit too but even the better tracks could have been Game album cuts if Jayceon was all AY CUZ AY MAKE THIS LIKE METALLICA UNFORGIVEN WITH TOO MUCH ORGAN AND WE WILL ROCK YOU DRUMS but thats a rant for another time. And ultimately a moot point, good beat + bad songwriting = bad music no matter how you attempt to justify otherwise. EXHALE. But why focus on the big dogs, here’s some joints you may have missed.

Food Gold: Freezy Freaky Frozen Corn Soup

Posted on Jun 8th, 2010 by Elliot Aronow

One of my favorite things to do when I have some frozen vegetables hanging in my freezer is to make an improv soup. For me, these “see what we have” house specials are a chance to funk around with veggies and stocks in various stages of “freshness” and see what combinations work best. More often than not, the resultz are very pleasin’. For this week’s edition of Food Gold, I’mma show you a soup I made with frozen corn and some left over heavy cream. It’s sweet and savory, with just a hint of heat at the end. It’s very nice for a summer soup, as it can be served chilled as well. Corniness after the jump! Read More

Food Gold: Asparagus With A Fried Egg

Posted on May 26th, 2010 by Elliot Aronow

I try not to get too too caught up with whole seasonal this and that trend but right now, you are sleeping if you are not cooking a ton of asparagus. For this week’s Food Gold we are going to do a “soft touch” classic, asparagus topped with a fried egg. The name of the game here is timing, timing and timing so let’s jump in and see how to finesse this, ok?

Food Gold: Trinidad Rave Up

Posted on May 19th, 2010 by Elliot Aronow

This past week, Food Gold assembled a wild crew and hit up Trinidad for a few days of liming, eating and partying at weird Indian clubs that played Turbo Soca and Wham. Included in our brigade were noted journalist Mr. Michael Calderone, recent Harvard grad (Phd Philosophy) and resident food photographer Sam Goldman, yours truly and our host with de most Mr. Trini Chris aka @jillionaire or that dude who is always yelling racist shit @diplo on twitter. If you need a hook up down there Chris is your dude and he will make sure you get crunk and fed.

Check out our take on some local favorites like roti, SHARK AND BAKE and doubles after de jump, you maco man! Read More

Food Gold: Spinach/Avocado Wrap w/ Balsamic Mushrooms

Posted on May 5th, 2010 by Elliot Aronow

Call me crazy but sometimes I just get the illest cravings for bourgie deli sandwiches. Turkey with brie and apples, pastrami with thousand island dressing and slaw, sprouts with swiss—you get the gist. Those joints are delicious, and so well presented.

Trouble is, they can be a bit pricey and may or may not sharpen the focus on what side of the gentrification fence you are really on when you order one (ZING!) So, to assuage your guilt and impress your friends, we recommend making these delicious Spinach/Avocado/Swiss/Mushroom wraps. They are super healthy, delicious and totally on the right side of the revolution. Enjoy!
