More Stories In Hoboken Progress

Recently, I've had several more stories published in Hoboken Progress, a few of them cover stories. You can check the first one here (for page one) and here (for page two), published in the June 19th edition about some phony campaign work flyers. And click here (for page one) and here (for page two) of a story in the July 3rd edition about Hoboken inauguration-day trivia.

More Scripts for Bon Appétit Web Site

A while back I worked on another video project for the Bon Appétit Web site. The project was co-sponsored by Slowfood USA and Anolon Cookware and the gist of it is that a few high-profile New York City chefs used some of the Slowfood (a movement that's the opposite of "fast food") sustainability principles to prepare a gourmet, four-course meal. I wrote the scripts for the  five-part video series, the first of which you can view below and the rest of which you can see here or by clicking on the name of the dish in the right column. 

The four courses were: Butternut Squash Soup with Pancetta and Spice Creme Fraiche (prepared by Jonathan Lindenauer); Seared Diver Scallops with Cauliflower and Caper Gastrique (also prepared by Lindenauer); Herb Stuffed Leg of Lamb with Beans Confit (prepared by Bill Telepan of Telepan restaurant); and Heirloom Apple Tart with Almond Frangipane and Caramel Sauce (prepare by Galen Zamarra of Mas [farmhouse] restaurant). The last segment is a video of the chefs enjoying the meal and discussing the cookware and the virtues of the Slowfood approach to food.
