Kentucky Derby-a-thon!

I can’t think of a better way to spend the afternoon, than nibbling on Daniel Humm and Co.’s’ tasty southern treats, drinking vast amounts of bourbon and champagne, and getting to wear a big, bright orange hat with flowers on it. All this in honor of the Kentucky Derby, which occurred on May 1st at Eleven Madison Park. Danny Meyer (seen in the background at the left tip of my hat) was on hand, as were about 300 other revelers, foodies, chefs and actual Kentuckians. I could not help but take photo after photo of the fantastic food and costumes about. See this link for more of what happened that day. Photo above shows me displaying my favorite bite served: a pea puree lollipop, with flash fried peas on the outside—perfectly beautiful, surprising, and tasty. No wonder ChefDaniel Humm just won Best NYC Chef 2010 from James Beard. Not to mention Sous Chef James Kent will be representing the U.S. at the upcoming Bocuse d'Or. Great year for 11Mad, they deserve it!
