Due to some unforeseen family responsibilities I will be leaving San Francisco for New York this evening. I’m headed to the beautiful Finger Lakes area of New York (the State’s wine country) for 2 weeks. The picture’s of Canandaigua Lake, which was the closest of the Finger Lakes to my childhood hometown of Shortsville. Even though the trip is to take care of some personal business, fear not, I have packed my digital camera and camcorder and hope to continue filming and posting on location from my Mom’s spare bedroom.
The disturbing photo you see on the right is the infamous “Garbage Plate” invented nearby in Rochester, NY (photo from roadfood.com). This controversial culinary concoction has been called by some “the worst dish in America,” yet many locals swear by it (they’re usually drunk while doing so), calling it the ultimate late-night indulgence. I shall investigate this bizarre dish, and many other local delicacies, as I attempt to do a cheap imitation of Anthony Bourdain’s show “No Reservations” he does for the Travel Channel.
I’m not exactly sure when and how often I will be posting during the next couple weeks, but will try to get something up on the blog at least a few times a week. And, with any luck I will be able to film a few of my family’s secret recipes for you all to enjoy. Stay tuned!
