So as all you readers of this blog (all five of you) have probably noticed, things have been pretty quiet on chiles & chocolate lately.
There’s a pretty good reason for this: Emily and I recently moved to New York to pursue new opportunities. We’re excited about the possibilities for both of us moving forward. Unfortunately, it will mean things might be slow on this blog for the next few months.
That said, our move to New York will hopefully inspire us to come up with new ideas for this blog going forward (being in a food mecca certainly can’t hurt, right?). We’ve already eaten falafel that’s actually crispy on the outside and green on the inside (sorry, Saleh – though your hummus is still the best!), walked into Ivan Ramen sans reservation, learned to never request a toasted bagel, and eaten ice cream more frequently than a person probably should when enduring sub-freezing temperatures. Emily and I have already come up with some new recipes we want to start testing as soon as we can get back in the kitchen.
So far, we’ve been exploring New York City from a series of short-term stays at Airbnbs throughout the city, but we’re about to begin some longer stays, and we’re hopeful that we can spend meaningful time in the kitchen over the next two months that will translate to more regular postings on this blog. In the meantime, we’re looking forward to exploring the city’s food culture.
