Michael Talks Seasonality with Judie Choate

December 14, 2010

In the NYC restaurant, Michael McCarty and Judith Choate chat and then read the blog on our iPads. You know you can always check out the blog and use it help you decide what to order—very cool!

Such a gorgeous book!!

We love Judie Choate!  She helped Michael write Welcome to Michael’s and is herself an amazing chef, author, and pioneer of American cooking. Michael recently met up with her at Michael’s New York to discuss, what else, food!  She chronicled the meeting in her fabulous blog, Notes From Judie’s Kitchen.  Here’s a little snippet:

Traveling back and forth weekly between Santa Monica and New York, he manages the best of two food worlds. “The farmer’s markets in California are winding down a bit from a spectacular late summer harvest. Cold weather and fog in early summer brought us corn and tomatoes in September and October. Noticed a much later harvest in New York markets, also.  So, we’ve had a wonderful menu for months now in both restaurants”.  I tried to inject a question or two but Michael continued, “Spiny lobsters are in now in Santa Monica and in New York black and white truffles are pouring in – and you know how I love my pasta with lobster and truffles. Florida is sending us great stone crab. The oysters have been unbelievable this year. The huge Belons from Maine are thrown on the grill and downed with a great oaky chardonnay”. On and on he raved. But, I am here to tell you that not only does Michael love the luxuries of life, he is willing to share them with one and all.

Thank you so much, Judie! Here’s looking forward to more cooking, more eating, and more loving great American food!
