The Experimental Gourmand has moved! After more than 5 years on Blogger, I decided to move to WordPress and my own domain name. It’s been a lot of work over the last month or so, but I think that the new location will be worth it. Please save this bookmark: http://www.theexperimentalgourmand.com to keep up with all the Food Events, Market Trips, and Recipes that are the features of this site.

On Wednesday night, I crossed the river again to head to the Brooklyn Brewery for an event organized by Brooklyn Based, a website and newsletter about the borough and its activities, called "Rolling in the Dough or No?". Featuring several favorite and well-known local food entrepreneurs, the setting for the evening was a panel about what it is like to start a food business in the city and what might be some of the pitfalls, hurdles, and aspects that anyone who is interested in pursuing this should consider. There were also some tasty treats to try as well.

I've always loved tea parties. When I was little, my aunt gave me a miniature tea set in porcelain, and I played with it for hours. I had to hide it from my younger siblings to keep it from being destroyed. My mom and I used to make a slot in our travels to have tea and for my parents' 25th wedding anniversary, we kids surprised them with a formal tea to welcome them home from their trip to Paris.

Ah, the gentle hum of the dishwasher. What a great sound. I had a few friends over for Easter Brunch today. I really enjoy entertaining, but what I also like is that satisfying feeling after putting my home back in order when it is all done. Thankfully, too, I have friends who are willing to trek all the way to the Upper East Side on a weekend when the MTA has decided that the one subway line to my neighborhood has to be completely re-configured for repairs. I hope that the food I served was worth it.
