A Golden Dinner – The Alchemy of Taste and Smell

 
Alchemy - Definition from  Dictionary.com
1. a form of chemistry and speculative philosophy practiced inthe Middle Ages and the Renaissance
 and concerned principally with discovering methods for transmuting baser metals into gold and 
 with finding a universal solvent and an elixir of life.
2. any magical power or process of transmuting a common substance, usually of little value, into a 
 substance of great value.

The Dinner at The Alchemy of Taste and Smell event at The Astor Center clearly did not live up to the first definition above. Try as many have, those goals remain elusive. […]

Le Fooding N.Y.

The last stand in that courtyard belonged to Sean Rembold of Brooklyn’s Diner who prepared the amazingly delicious “fried corn with scallop butter” using fresh corn from long Island. The corn received a quick dip in the deep frier before being slathered with the scallop laden butter and some greens. The lines here were quite short early, but grew quickly once word got out.
