Food Porn Friday | Bread Pudding Double Whammy at Gennaro’s

gennaros_chocolatebreadpudding

Chocolate Bread Pudding with Chocolate Ganache Sauce BOTH of these beauties were served as the 5th course during a tasting of Gennaro’s new MANGIAmeria menu. I honestly didn’t think I could go on. After going a little too crazy on the pasta course (read: devouring the entire plate in under five minutes), I was feeling even more immobile than I usually do after a North End meal. Then I decided it was totally worth it to enjoy both, forego all plans for the … read more

Food Porn Sunday | French Toast at Mooo

mooo_featured

Because Friday was a little crazy for everyone, Food Porn has been moved to Sunday this week. And what more perfect for Sunday than the brunch classic of french toast? Banana french toast with gingered maple syrup complete with BRULEED banaynay. Yup, Mooo always finds a way to wow me. Remember this guy? They just got in the brunch game a few weeks ago, and judging by this hot piece of ace, they are coming out guns blazing. And really, who isn’t a … read more

Food Porn Friday | Avocado and Blood Orange Salsa

bloodorangesalsa

I feel like this happens every February…everyone I know is sick, myself included. Good thing it’s blood orange season. We can load up on all that winter citrus vitamin C while enjoying one of my all time favorite fruits. Every year around this time I buy so much blood orange that I’m forced to find new things to do with it, because there are only so many blood orange margaritas one person can have before needing to switch it up. … read more

Food Porn Friday | Lobster Grilled Cheese | Victoria Gastro Pub, Columbia MD

victorias_lobstergrilledcheese

In my suburban hometown of Columbia, Maryland, 90% of the restaurants are chains, maybe more. In high school we went to places like Ruby Tuesday or On The Border all the time. If we really wanted to make a night of it, Macaroni Grille. That’s why it’s so nice to have a refuge like Victoria Gastro Pub where the food is the opposite of chain food. It was the perfect spot for a friend and I to catch up over lunch, drink … read more

Food Porn Friday | Lasagna Special at Anchovies

anchovies_ravioli

Between all this annoying rain and waiting for Christmas to just get here already, this has been the LONGEST week of all time. Thank god it’s Friday. And that we’re still alive. And that we get time off SO SOON. And that Anchovies has lasagna specials on a nightly basis – for $13. Yup. This particular lasagna special was of the bolognese variety, which is and always will be the best thing ever. It comes with enough melted cheese, meat, … read more

Food Porn Friday | Tom Yum Noodle Soup | Rod Dee

Nothing in the world (except maybe my new cashmere infinity scarf) is warmer and more comforting than a bowl of Tom Yum soup on a cold winter day. Rod Dee‘s Tom Yum Noodle Soup may just be my new favorite in the Boston area. One sip of this broth and you will be instantly warm and tingly from head to toe. It has the perfect level of thai chili spice and thanks to the lemongrass and cilantro, it’s refreshing at the same time.  They … read more

Food Porn Friday | Everything from il Frantoio | Lubriano, Italy

umbria_frantoio3

On that trip to Italy I started telling you about…I spent some time with my Italian cousins as well. They are my great grandmother’s sister’s kids, I think that makes them my third cousins? I don’t know. What I do know is that they have amazing taste in food. They live in Orvieto but drove me to another town in the Lazio region, Lubriano, for lunch. Il Frantoio was the restaurant. It’s located in a cave that used to be olive … read more

Food Porn Friday | Prosciutto & Goat Cheese | The Salty Pig

I love Prosciutto. Prosciut. Prosciut. Prosciut. Here it goes, down into my belly. I know we talk about it a lot, but I will never get sick of Prosciutto. And I hope you guys won’t either because I don’t plan on slowing down my Prosciutto intake anytime soon. Especially when it’s sitting next to an oozing wedge of French goat cheese. Thank you, Salty Pig for making my dreams come true. And for being so close to my home. And for existing … read more

Food Porn Friday | Ricotta Bruschetta at Morandi | NYC

I’m just really feeling ricotta this week. Between looking at pics of the ricotta stuffed tomatoes and then this, I’ve been daydreaming about canceling all plans for the day, going to South End Formaggio, buying all the ricotta they have, coming straight home, and eating it right out of the carton…not even kidding. This bruschetta with ricotta, honey and nuts from Morandi in NYC was the best part of the entire brunch. Everything else was mediocre at best but they definitely deserve a few points, it was … read more

Food Porn Friday | Burrata | Oak Long Bar + Kitchen

As we said last week…’tis the season for tomatoes. And you know what that means: MOZZ. And lots of it. Burrata, mozz’s creamy little sister is not only a favorite, it’s a fetish. As a JAC reader you may already know my love for burrata runs deep, I eat it and order it every chance I get. Which is exactly why this was the first dish to grab my attention when I took a look at Oak Long Bar + Kitchen‘s menu: Maplebrook … read more
