The history of limoncello twists through a series of tales and legends primarily on the Amalfi Coastline area (Capri, Sorrento and Amalfi). This citrus spirit is now considered the national drink of Italy and has found popularity here in the states.
Before I begin, I need to purchase a lem
on zester. I’m thinking this tool would be faster and easier then grating 10 to 15 lemons while trying not to get any of the pith. A great place for kitchen utensils such as this is Bowery Kitchen Supply.
So come on…
Today I am taking you on a field trip to one of my favorite places I frequent here in the city called the Chelsea Market. It can be found on 9th Avenue between 15th and 16th Street on the ground floor of what used to be the old National Biscuit Company building. Hints of the building’s industrial past are sprinkled throughout your walk down the long corridor, like powdered sugar on a modern day confection. THE AESTHETIC RECIPE OF THE CHELSEA MARKET is a visceral feast of neglected ductwork, old signboards, the original train shed, and other historic ingredients melding its flavors along with modern zests, such as a makeshift waterfall and lighted floor. As you walk your way down the arcade of food shops and restaurants building up a strong appetite from the delicious aromas taunting your nose, toward the end, there is where you will find Bowery Kitchen Supply.
I know that this blog entry had nothing to do with décor but I thought I’d share it anyway. Just think, after a shot of limoncello, I bet your home will look prettier to you! If not, call!!! :)
