We had an epic feast this past Sunday at our dorm. Everyone was required to bring something, preferably to cook. I ended up making a dessert: cinnamon apple puff pastry with creme anglaise – a recipe that I learned last year in my culinary elective! I did not think it would take so long to cook, but when cooking for about a dozen people, it ends up taking a while. The creme anglaise I made on Saturday, which took about two hours to make two batches. The puff pastry took a while to make since I had to bake a dozen. With prep and cooking time, it took three hours. But you know what? All the effort was worth it because dinner was amazing.

Gold stars to Patrick & Kelly, the floor chefs, who made a wonderful turkey for us to feast on.

E is for English was held at A Salt & Battery in the West Village. Traditional English fish and chips. I thought it was pretty good, but others in the group didn’t enjoy it as much. For fish and chips, it was pretty expensive. Six dollars for a piece of fried pollock and four dollars for chips. But it is relatively cheap compared to our other ethnic food restaurants. The place was small, so it wasn’t good for a big group. Eventually, I would like to try other English food… maybe from Tea and Sympathy.

I haven’t posted one of these in a while. Columbus Weekend was a little bit crazy. Everyone was going away so we decided to postpone D for Dutch by a week. We finally went this past weekend for brunch. The main reason we went for brunch this time around because of the pricing. D was a bit harder to find and the only Dutch place we found, Vandaag, was in the East Village. It’s a pretty close distance to where we dorm so it was pretty easy to get there.
