Thank you, Chelsea Market Baskets!

I spent yesterday evening enjoying the crowds of locals and visitors strolling through Chelsea Market.  David Porat, owner of Chelsea Market Baskets, invited me to do a book signing during the Food Network’s Wine and Food Festival.  I want to thank David and his dedicated staff for hosting me — and for having such amazing taste in food!

Chelsea Market Baskets is the premier spot in New York (and beyond, thanks to their mail order services) for unique, super high quality local and imported foods and food-related gifts.  They have a wonderful selection of delicacies ranging from jams and condiments, to teas and cookies, and savory chips.  Their cheese section is a small goldmine of cheesy surprises.  And their formidable chocolate section offers so many artisanal varieties to suit milk chocolate people (like me) and serious dark chocolate fans (Mast Brothers!).  True to their name, Chelsea Market Baskets makes beautiful gift baskets for any occasion.

Definitely go visit Chelsea Market Baskets for tasty treats to refresh your pantry.  I picked up jars SchoolHouse Kitchen jam and chutney and 1/2 pound of Leonidas Belgian chocolates as a hostess gift.  ‘Tis the season!

And then spend the rest of the afternoon strolling through all the lovely shops inside Chelsea Market.

Thank you also to Photographer Ed Lefkowicz for coming by and taking this great photo!  My groovy dress is handmade by designer Tom Sohung, and my lovely lariat necklace is by Shaya Fine Handcrafted Jewelry, both in the markets of New York City!
