the all-star team behind this past weekend’s shoot for popfoods.tv, hosted by the infamous chef russell jackson, directed by raffi asdourian, shot by jon chen, and yours truly [me] as one of the special guests, along with award-winning, tv chopping star chefs lance knowling, and pastry chefs ashley holt & thiago silva. more soon. for now, you can drool over one of his recent tastings below and/or also a past tasting here at louro or the
dirty bad santa xmas dinner party i hosted as the top chef.
the subculture dining experience: think a museum, with your favorite artist having an art installation ready for viewing, but only for a limited time — the bonus is you get to
harass the chef himself and pull a portandia “can i see the chicken’s headshot & resume? did the chicken have a happy life?” kindly inquire about the dish choices and ingredients since the chef is in clear conversational view. foodies’ challenging questions are welcomed!
the chef at work, and we have the pleasure of watching him add final touches to each course, aka front row for a top chef competition.
clams in pozole verde, poblano lime cumin broth, micro greens – excellent.
paired with: toasted kombu rum, velvet flurnum & green juice drink with muddled jalepeno
and what do we have here? brown paper bag…bringing you back to its roots
picadillo taco: aged cabbage, mexican creme, chile arbol salsa – amazing.
paired with: chile vodka, kummel, lime, pisco style
chicken roulade: crispy skin, rose petal mole sauce [perfected poached chicken breast might i add]
palate cleanser: deep fried pineapple. dehydrated honey and chipotle salt
THIS MAGICAL DESSERT. in the glass for dipping: blue corn alote, chocolate, pilincco, buttered rum + buckwheat churros
redefining churros, with a fancy, intoxicating yet delicate flair.
the pate de fruit, banana/dry rum
as per usual, i was quite behind on my cocktail pairings. amazing experience.
his next upcoming “art installation” is coming up and more info here! enjoy!
i know him…
“you walked into the party, like you were walking onto a yacht…” – carly simon.
but i was walking onto a yacht. classified as a mega yacht part of fleet miami, usher is a luxurious 154-footer that i have known since 2013. even before he became a movie star in the infamous entourage film opening today, june 3rd, he is no stranger to hosting supermodels, actors, musicians, lively personalities, & movers and shakers across the world. here is an inside look of some photographs
of our relationship i’ve compiled over the years.
when we first met during the xmas/new year holiday season of 2013, i thought wow, he’s huge…
take note of the flawless detailing from exterior to interior…
variety of seashells from the seashore + glistening sand encased in the glass coffee tables reveal an art lover, reminiscent of the beach life that is often simultaneous to a yacht life.
long table screamed out photo-op, so i got up on top.
beautiful automatic glossy glass doors.
sun deck for your tanning pleasure, fully stocked with plush towels & various sunblock & skin products.
proper table to catch up with some work on your ipad.
the indoor bar which can also be transformed into a small gambling table…
i met usher again during his maiden voyage to new york city in the summer of 2014, and of course, i had to play him a few new songs of mine.
then again for thanksgiving of 2014…he hasn’t changed much. still majestic. still tip top cream of the crop.
the hot tub on the 3rd deck which i’m sure will be highly featured in the film alongside
naked scantily clad bodies.
view from the 3rd deck.
the view from the control center
jelly fish at their best.
i hear that a fantastic james beard award-winning chef, jarle saupstad, has graced usher’s presence with delectable delights onboard. hello foodies!
different guitar, same yacht.
the view from the hot tub on the top deck. all aboard! for roughly
3 unicorns and your nyu tuition $200K a week, you can also enjoy this luxurious yachting experience at its finest. til we meet again, usher! i cannot wait for you to see my new blondie look. au revoir!
a sneak peek from my “cleopatra in the city” themed
reality show birthday party. enjoy the eye candy. you’re welcome, of course.
sometimes it’s too easy to walk away, at other times it’s too difficult.
for the toxic, invested relationships we find ourselves in, it takes the strength & courage & the unimaginable to move on away from it. this song is about that, and i hope we all find what we are looking for while realizing our self-worth, and a brighter road lies just ahead. we can.
once you walk out that door… #snow #music #nyc

snow leopard. blondie is back.
one way or another…
super bowl xlix
what’s sexier than a girl wearing a victoria’s secret bra? a girl wearing 3: 1 bra on the usual, 2nd for my right shoulder, & a 3rd for the left. #shoulderpads
celebrating super bowl balls! sing along with me if you will…
feb 2nd [add-on]: did you love it or hate it? what a game, especially from a non-avid football game watcher! the ads however were mostly disappointing — some being a complete waste of good money. definitely enjoyed the
viagra fiat and the mercedes [tortoise + hare] commercials the most. halftime show: missy elliot, awesome as usual. katy perry, vox on point but wardrobe? 1st hot wheels gear should be illegal, 2nd [slightly better] transformed her into a hot dog on a stick girl jumping on lemons for fresh lemonade. the later outfits were bearable. the shooting star made the show seem like it was for little children at disneyland.
the dogpiles, awesome. the big fightclub near the end of the game made me bit nervous but so entertaining.
