Freshly Baked: Boston Area Food News Roundup

Boston is a happening food city. There is so much going on that it's really hard to keep up. Here are a few morsels to munch on.

~ Food Trucks ~

On Saturday, October 13th, from 11am - 9pm, there is a Boston vs. New York event of epic proportions. A Food Truck Throwdown!

At Dewey Square on the Greenway, food trucks representing Boston and New York will battle it out in contests all day to see who will win the title of Best Food Truck

~ Food Blogger Book Tours ~

If you like the blog, The Wednesday Chef, then you'll be happy to hear that on Tuesday, October 2nd, 7pm at the Harvard Book Store in Cambridge, Luisa Weiss will be speaking about her book, My Berlin Kitchen: A Love Story (with Recipes).

Deb Perelman aka Smitten Kitchen will be in the Boston area for two events to promote her new book, The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook. On Tuesday, November 27th, 7pm, she will have a cooking demo at the Miele Gallery in Wellesley, sponsored by Wellesley Books.

On Wednesday, November 28th, 6pm, she'll be at the Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline, in conjunction with Brookline Booksmith for a special presentation. Quite mysterious!

~ East Somerville Foodie Crawl ~

On Tuesday, September 25th, 6-9:30pm, the East Broadway Foodie Crawl opens up one of Somerville's nearly underground culinary districts: East Broadway Business District.

Take this rare opportunity to have the doors flung open on more than 12 restaurants and taste the flavors that locals flock to with restaurants offering cuisines from El Salvador, Brazil, Haiti, Ethiopia and more. Tastings run from 6-8pm, and dessert parties start at 8pm in three area bars, kicking off after parties with local music.

~ Blue Dragon By Ming Tsai Coming To Boston ~

The Improper Bostonian has a great interview with Ming Tsai. Sadly I've never been to his restaurant Blue Ginger, which is located in Wellesley. But our dinner club did celebrate Tsai as one of our celebrity chefs. I love the way he combines flavors in his recipes. We all loved his Coconut-Molasses Cake.

So in the interview, I read that by January, Tsai plans to open a new restaurant called Blue Dragon in the Seaport District, an “Asian gastropub” with 75 seats. According to this website, it will open in February. Either way, I'll be planning to make my way over there.
