Kitchensurfing Launches in Seattle

Readers, I am very excited to announce that Kitchensurfing, a company that I blogged about just last month, has officially launched in Seattle as of July 15th! You may or may not remember, but Kitchensurfing is a company that allows you to host the dinner party of your dreams without actually doing all of the work. You actually hire a local chef in your city who will come and prepare a meal for your significant other, friends, or family – ingredients, supplies, and cleaning included for just one price. I know it sounds like it’s too good to be true, but that’s why it is amazing. I am itching to try it out myself, but since I haven’t had the opportunity yet, I’m counting on my Seattle friends to take the plunge first for me!

To learn more, visit their website here. Seattle is the sixth city that Kitchensurfing is opening in.

Malvi Marshmallows

Truth. I am most hungry when I am browsing the internet for inspiring content. The other day I stumbled upon Malvi marshmallows and was immediately intrigued with what I saw in front of me. First off, these marshmallows are perfectly square AND chunky. They are wedged between two shortbread cookies and come in a variety of very interesting flavors. Flavors that I have never even had in ice cream flavor form. I think that’s sort of like the ultimate test of uniqueness.

  • Raspberry Hibicus
  • Spiked Espresso
  • Vanilla Salted Caramel
  • 80% Chocolate
  • Mint Chocolate Malvis

Curious yet? What do we need to do to get our hands on some of these?!

PS: I’ve decided that sweet treats like these make some of the best gifts. I’ve been finding all over blogs recently various companies that make really interesting desserts that you can ship all over and could make for some pretty great surprises on your doorstep.

We’re in love with Malvi.

I was informed this week that I just missed the Ballard Seafood Festival back in Seattle this past weekend and all I could think of was how badly I was craving Ivar’s Clam and Chips and a bowl of their Clam Chowder. It was a tradition for my family to have dinner out at Ivar’s every so often and the clams and clam chowder were always my favorite. As we got older, we started eating out less, but that didn’t stop my dad from purchasing the clam chowder packets from Ivar’s that you could buy at the store and make at home yourself. If I have a chance to eat it here, I typically order it, but let’s be real – it just doesn’t compare.

I’m headed home in a couple months and flying out of my favorite terminal that just so happens to have an Ivar’s stop in it. Nailin’ it, you guys.

The Weekend: 5 Things

Thank goodness I had Ash by my side this past weekend because I definitely couldn’t have walked away with my TopShop purchases from Nordstrom without her! Um. Hi. I need a Nordstrom card. If you haven’t been living under a rock then you know that it’s the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! ie) the most celebrated time of the year for Ashley and I. Early access is great. It’s a privilege I don’t have, but need. If I had to wait until it was open to the public then I’m almost sure everything I wanted would have been sold out by then.

This movie is kind of insane.

We discovered these qt bears in a store in the Mission that turn into neck pillows when you turn them inside out. I would just keep it as the bear.

I decided this morning that I wanted to embark on a journey of trying all of the “Fried Egg Sandwiches” in San Francisco. This one is from Market and Rye and while I loved the taste of their bacon, I didn’t really love their mustard aioli. It’s not their fault, I just don’t like mustard.

As a child, I loved the idea of having tea parties and nomming on tea sandwiches. I was a fan of all kinds of little food and that preference of mine is still something that rings true today. Donut holes. Sushi rolls. Sliders. Noticing a theme here? I would always make my dad cut my sandwiches into triangles or squares and even though I couldn’t appreciate cucumbers as a child, I am completely fine with them down. What I wouldn’t do for a few tea sandwiches right now…with the crusts off of course.

I read about this new restaurant in the financial district in SF on Quora today called Sushirrito and HAD to check it out. They’re pretty much calling it a sushi burrito, but doesn’t it also kind of look like a sushi hand roll. Either way, I would be happy with it. I hear that the lines for this place around lunch time are around the corner and crazy. They don’t have a very diverse menu, but do they really need to? I think the one above is the tuna option and I’m so hungry right now I wish someone would Postmates this to me. Yum.

In Things I Ate Yesterday

I typically try to photograph interesting (or really great looking) things that I eat, but I forgot to catch this one yesterday. Lucky for me, 7×7 happened to have it featured on their blog. Looking for a quick bite yesterday, we stopped in to Craftsman and Wolves where we picked up this muffin with an egg inside! Yesterday, was very egg filled themed. I don’t mind it.

This little gem is called The Rebel Within /  asiago, sausage, green onion, soft cooked farm egg and it’s pretty tasty.

I’ve eaten at Plow in Potrero Hill several times and each time I’ve always ended up with meals that I have been satisfied with, but haven’t stuck around to be a regular order. Today, was a game changer. At brunch with Mandi, she introduced me to the fried egg sandwich and it was pretty much the most amazing meal I’ve had in a long time.

fried egg sandwich   two eggs fried soft, cheddar, aioli, frisee, crispy potatoes  11  add Nueske bacon  13.5

In fact, I’m craving it HARD right now because I had dinner at 4 and now I am starved. Not only do you have the option to add bacon to your sandwich, but you can also add avocado which we all know is like the sprinkles of sandwiches. It’s a little messy since your second bite might make your egg crack, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it’s the best. Runny eggs. YES.

This craving may or may not have to do with the fact that I started off my first meal this morning with Sheila’s homemade ice cream. When I was a kid, I ate popsicles often, but never the ones that were made entirely out of fudge. No, if I had one of those, it was because I was at a friend’s house and they just happened to have them in the freezer. My craving could also be because of two other factors -

  • It’s just too hot here and having a fudge ice pop is absolutely a necessity
  • I had a bottle of juiced vegetables and fruit for dinner

Whatever the case, there is no wrong time to have one, amirite?!

The Week: 5 Things

There was one more notable thing that happened during the week that I felt should be included in this post. Earlier this week, our interns and employees went on a short train ride over to Menlo Park for Off the Grid! I’ve only ever been to the one in Haight with my friend Sam a few years back so I was excited to try a different location. The first truck I made a beeline for was The Chairman, which I remembered from the last time I was at Off the Grid. The Pork Belly Bao is the most delicious bite (or more than a few bites for me!) After this, I went on to have a warm Empanada. The best thing about Off the Grid is that there is always so much variety and so many different things to try. I’m looking forward to my next trip there or even … the Fort Mason off the grid with 30+ vendors!

Oyster shucking in the office! We shipped 100 oysters over from Boston – some of the best oysters I’ve ever had.

Three juices purchased for three meal substitutions this week! The third one was my dinner tonight. We survived. By we I mean me and my stomach. We’ll make a separate post for this later once I’ve finished.

You Did Not Eat That

audrina

I don’t know about you guys, but I have become a little bit annoyed when I see Instagram photos of pretty and delicate bloggers/models, celebrities etc. eating foods that you wouldn’t expect them to eat in the first place. Sure they’re posing with a burger or an ice cream cone, but …do we know if they actually ate the whole thing or just used it for an Instagram shot. Here’s a photo above of Audrina Patridge gorging on In N’ Out. Granted, there’s no way to figure out if they did eat it because we weren’t there, but one Instagram account holder seems to believe that all of these people are just using these food items for props and you know what? It’s not a ridiculous idea.

Check out the Instagram here.

It’s that time again. We’re almost at 10:00 PM and no surprise here – I’m hungry. It’s so hard to make ramen look good in photographs though. Google Images pulled up a ton of photos for Shalala and none of them look that appetizing. That’s okay though because most people know what ramen tastes like and that compensates for how it looks in photographs. I tried Shalala for the first time in Mountain View last week and – I can’t believe I’m saying this… – I liked it better than Orenchi’s! GAH!

How is that even possible? Well Shalala has corn so there ya go.

No, actually Shalala, Orenchi’s, Maru Ichi’s – they’re all great.

KitchenSurfing

I’ve always wanted to be the kind of person who would host these monthly dinner parties. I wanted to prepare a menu, have impressive dinnerware and cook up a meal making it look absolutely flawless. I think if any one of my friends have seen me in the kitchen, they would probably say that I am the complete opposite. While browsing the internet last night, I discovered this service called Kitchensurfing that Bri Emery of DesignLoveFest has used. She recently hosted a dinner party of a group of her friends and used Kitchensurfing. The company provides a service that gives you a chef that cooks the meal that you want along with bringing along all of their supplies and cleaning up at the very end. Is this a dream?

To get started, you just need to pick your cuisine and the rest is downhill from there. Kitchensurfing is available in a number of major cities and throughout California.
