IntoxiKate’s Edible Holiday Gift Guide: Nudo Adopt Olive Oil

{Nudo Adopt Olive Oil: For the Environmentally-Conscious Home Cook} To say it simply, Nudo Adopt is a subscription olive oil service—you adopt an olive oil tree from one of seven Italian groves, and then receive shipments of cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil that tastes anything but simple.

Irvington Newbie: Sambal Thai & Malaysian

Irvington is lucky. First, they received a hands-on education on Indian food  from Chef Navjot Arora. With Chutney Masala, diners got a literal taste of authentic Indian cuisine and, paired with his cooking classes and specialties geared towards the more adventurous, Arora literally schooled everyone on spices, origins of dishes, and culture from the region. With his next venture, Arora is at it again, teaming up with Chef Lucky Thai to launch Sambal, an eatery dedicated to authentic Thai and (soon!) Malaysian cuisine. […]
