What a busy year! The spring brought The Food Flirts with the Brass Sisters to NYC for the James Beard Foundation Media awards. Our show was nominated for best show shot on location, and while we didn’t win our category, it was truly a privilege to be in such rarified company. We all felt the love in the room and beyond. We saw lots of old friends, made some great new ones (Marilynn is gazing at, and about to meet, Jeremiah Tower off camera!), and of course we enjoyed outstanding food.
We just relaunched The Food Flirts nationally on July 6, with PBS rolling out our new episodes back-to-back on the first three Friday nights in July from 10-11 p.m. nationally in many markets, (but please check here for broadcast info. in your area as days and times vary city to city). Let the adventure continue and thanks for tuning in!!
Thrilled to report that The Food Flirts, the new TV cooking show I’ve been helping to develop for the past year-plus, just debuted in prime time on PBS across the country on Friday, July 28, at 10 p.m. (right after The Great British Baking Show). More episodes coming this fall!
It’s a blast of a show, starring the inimitable Sheila and Marilynn Brass. I have previously overseen the cooking operations on shows I’ve produced, but as supervising producer on this project, I’ve enjoyed being involved in all aspects (including the food, of course). And getting to build this from the ground up with the all-star team of executive producer Bruce Seidel and the Brass Sisters has made it one of the most rewarding experiences of my career in food media. Please check it out!

Two new firsts for me – my first time styling the photo for my own Globe Magazine piece (click on the photo). Plus an original video for each recipe thanks to the Globe’s very talented video crew, Anush Elbakyan, Emily Zendt, and Dana Sinerate. If you watch all 5 videos, you get a prize or at least a peppermint swizzle stick!
What – not a soul on the internet is celebrating today’s national food holiday and obviously trending hashtag, #fourprunesday ? Scroll down to my last recipe and you can make a delish dessert with prunes, other dried fruit and sherry and soon you won’t be able to count to four (just kidding, the alcohol burns off!).
