3D Food Printers, The Next Big Thing In The Chef’s Arsenal?

I was lucky enough to be visit the New York City Wine and Food Festival grand tasting on two days this weekend. I have several things I want to share but thought I’d begin with one of my favorite things.

The 3D food printers from The Candy Lab really are an amazing innovation. I am sure there are plenty of chefs and bakers out there who will take this tool and take it places it’s creators never even imagined.

I took some photos at the show but was very unhappy with them so these are from the creators website. The video will give you an idea of the process.

I am curious to see how the use of this will develop in the future.

Feature Instagram Foodie: The Foodie Physician

Since encouraging people to start using #theculinarylens as an Instagram hashtag it has been great for me to discover bloggers I was unaware of. The Foodie Physician has been a new and very worthwhile discovery for me. She offers grreat recipes with the added benefit of them being healthy.

Here is just a little from her “About Me” section.
Welcome to my site- I hope you're hungry!  My name is Sonali- I'm a board certified Emergency Medicine physician, culinary school graduate, recipe developer and bona fide foodie. My passion for food started several years ago when I moved back to New York City to do my residency training. I found myself spending what little free time I had away from the hospital cooking and experimenting with new recipes. In 2007 I entered a recipe contest on a whim and ended up being selected from thousands of entrants to compete on a cooking competition (Ultimate Recipe Showdown) on the Food Network. Since then, I haven’t stopped cooking and have won or placed in several contests including the Sutter Home Build a Better Burger Contest, National Beef Cook-Off, and National Chicken Contest. In addition, my recipes have been published in magazines including Everyday with Rachel Ray, Better Homes & Gardens and Taste of Home.

Truly worth checking out so please go over and check out everything she has to offer.

Haunted Pumpkin Garden in The Bronx

The Haunted Pumpkin Garden is such a fun pre Halloween tradition at the NYBG in The Bronx. I enjoy it but what I love most is that it means the Holiday Train show is just around the corner.
