A class in studio lighting morphed into a class on fashion photography, so I channelled my inner Austin Powers and shot photos like this:
I took advantage of my free time this weekend to examine my town more closely.
It is easy to ignore the things that are right underneath our noses. We are apt to jump on that plane to Aspen but to tale an afternoon to look at the food purveyors in our own area, we turn a blind palette. Yesterday I decided to remedy that situation.
For the past year, a Hoboken food tour has been offered. This was a chance to glimpse the family owned world of food purveyors that has kept this city well fed for generations. Despite the 90 degree plus temperature, I signed up.
A new cupcake centric bakery and an old coffee purveyor led to the end of the tour. While I am glad that "Cake Boss" has put Hoboken on the map, I am more happy that people like Tony Lisa and the Antique Bakery people have been producing great food for generations.
