1 - EAT Fish Pate:
Bluefish pate (East Coast): Here’s a creamy pate from Gabriel Frasca and Amanda Lydon, chefs at Nantucket's Straight Wharf Restaurant
Whitefish pate (Midwest Up North): Here’s a Michigan-based writer’s recipe from Maureen Abood that features fish from a COOKGIRL favorite, John Cross Fisheries in Charlevoix, MI
2 - EAT Oysters: straight from the ocean, shucked in front of you. Always better in the summer, especially with bubbly both in your glass and in your mignonette. Here’s a recipe from Canadian food blogger Kristen of The Endless Meal.
3 - EAT Pie Sundae in New York:
Pick one of Bubby’s NYC pies as a base and top it with Ample’s scoop flavors at Ample Hills Creamery at Bubby’s High Line.
5. EAT and take Suzanne Goin & Carolyn Styne with you the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles:
We suggest getting tickets NOW to see Culture Club with the Los Angeles Philharmonic August 26th or August 27th and ordering THE MULHOLLAND DRIVE menu ($62 per person):
summer string beans with burrata, radicchio, crushed almonds and lemon zest
grilled shrimp with yellow tomato gazpacho, avocado and green harissa or braised beef shortrib with smashed fingerlings, local tomatoes, arugula and basil pesto
bittersweet chocolate torta with caramel, mascarpone and crushed marconas
6. EAT and stop saying “No Bread” and eat some bread & butter. Really.
Start at the top of the food chain with Sliced Bread with Kefir Butter at Bar Tartine in San Francisco.
7. DRINK a Cocktail on a Stick (or in a cone) in Chicago.
8 - COOK by inviting Martha Stewart over to help you.
With something delicious from Marley Spoon like the Summer Vitality Bowl with Cucumbers and Quinoa
9 - GO POKE. Not Pokemon Go.
Just Poke from Hawaii served up in a bowl or burrito. Pokeworks operates in Northern California, Southern California and is advancing into New York, Boston and Seattle. Poke Bowl or Pokiritto, for sure dude.
And when you’re full….and it’s time for that Back to School feeling...
