My alma mater, The Culinary Institute of America has asked that I return to do a cooking demonstration on campus. It is a big honor, and I am excited to be up in the Hudson Valley again, even if it is for just a short time. I thought the best dish to demonstrate and represent our part of the country will be Blue Bamboo’s definitive signature dish, Red Curry Shrimp and Grits.
Since it is going to be such a faraway trip, I thought I would try to squeeze in some serious eating while up there. For the next few days, I will be in New York city trying new places and getting new ideas. My last trip up to New York a few years ago involved two days of eating in at least 15 places per day. Let’s see if I can match that this time. I will report back with some of the best things I see and eat as soon as I get back to Blue Bamboo.

About 80 people came for my presentation of Red Curry Shrimp and Grits at the CIA:
Here are a couple of pictures from the event and a video link:
For the record, Rocco Dispirito’s demonstration was before mine, so I guess that mades him my opening act???
