Fork This: Hot Chocolate Recipe + MTK Tavern

Shortly after launching IntoxiKate, restaurants approached me to start hosting events for my followers, who I lovingly call the Westchester #FoodieNation. We’ve sipped cocktails together at The Castle in Tarrytown, we’ve dined on steak at Benjamin Steakhouse in White Plains, and we kicked off the holidays in the VIP Lounge and Alley 810 at the Empire City Casino in Yonkers. And that’s just to name a few.

So how can you stay in the loop on the next IntoxiKate event AND reviews, news and more? Well, you can obviously tune in to my new show, Fork This with IntoxiKate, every Friday from 2 to 3 p.m. or download the AM 1230 WFAS app for iPhone and Andriod. But you can also visit to sign up to be on the #FoodieNation email list.

Dips in the temperature like the ones we’ve been experiencing lately make me do one thing—break out my crock pot to whip up some homemade soups and stews. I’ll be sharing some of my own recipes soon, but take a look at this amazing recipe from the pastry folks over at City Limits Diner in White Plains. If you haven’t been to City Limits, they are located across the street from the Westchester County Center, and have an amazing menu. I happen to love having breakfast there and recommend their Orange Lemon Waffle which is topped with seasonal fruit. They also have a Crab and Lobster Eggs Benedict if you prefer to have savory options in the AM. But Chef Tracy shared her special Valhrona hot chocolate recipe with me for the IntoxiKate Holiday Guide (which is my seasonal online magazine). Now, Valhrona chocolate is a high-grade luxury chocolate so you just know that’s going to be good…

I also mentioned that Elizabeth Mascali from Party BluPrints shared her Chicken Chipotle Chili recipe on my Facebook page. If you’re looking for a savory option, you can check out that recipe here.

Friday, I had owner Jeff Rosen and Chef Enzo De Raco (pictured with me above) from MTK Tavern (30 E. Main St., Mount Kisco, 914-218-3334) on to discuss their new menu and slew of music events at the eatery. Check out two of their featured dishes below, and for more information on their upcoming events, visit or their official Facebook page.
