Get Ready — Choice Eats 2012

You may remember A-Tooch’s obsession when she discovered the Choice Eats event last year. It’s baaaaack.

Feast of San Gennaro – Little Italy, NYC

Don’t let the freckles fool you, a complete 1/2 of A-Tooch is Italian. It’s a pretty big influence in what she cooks, likes to eat and maybe subconsciously, the people she dates and temper she has (?) Every year for as long as I can remember we’ve made what I call the pilgrimage to mecca […]
