Cooking with Eric Lechasseur

As a result of being one of Seed Kitchen's best customers I've come to know the chef and owners very well: Eric Lechassuer and Sanae Suzuki. Recently they asked me to help them with cooking videos, and they came out very well.

Here are the first 2 videos in the series. Join Eric as he demonstrates how to make 2 organic, macrobiotic recipes from his books "Love Eric" and "Love Eric and Sanae". Both these dishes are delicious and easy - they each take less than 10 minutes to prepare. I highly recommend that you try them, especially if you've never been to Seed (you're missing out!).

I feel like I don't need to write much more after you see that picture of the cinnamon rolls - you probably just want to know where you can get them! But let me assure you that they are delicious!!! Even though they are a week old already, they still taste very fresh, semi-moist, and flavorful. The sugar frosting is just right and there's a perfect amount of cinnamon. The Baby Bites are the great size, but you'll probably end up eating two or three (good thing there are 12 in a box!). To top it all off, they're gluten free!

Eat Pastry cookie dough: yum in a tub

 
The video literally speaks for itself, but the bottom line is that I love Eat Pastry cookie dough. It's one of the rare instances when you can judge a book by it's cover, because you can tell from the packaging that it's going to be delicious. Meeting Jessie, the co-owner and chef, sealed the deal, and I fell in love with the company.


Favorite flavor: Chocoholic (tastes like a brownie and a cookie got married!)
Organic: partially
Fair Trade: sugar is
Healthy: healthier, no preservatives, no GMOs
Eco-friendly: besides being vegan, not really. It's made from plastic #5, which is hard to recycle, but you can definitely reuse it.
 
Check out the website to find out where you can buy it, and to view cute descriptions of each flavor.

These tasted great, but they were really oily and gave me and my sister upset stomachs. Maybe we added too much Earth Balance or peanut butter? You can buy The Kind Diet here

Atlas Cafe NYC: review

Published in Restaurant Reviews

Had a delicious meal at the new Veggie Grill location in West Hollywood with Christy of Viva la Greens: Chickin' Caesar Wrap, All Hail Kale salad, Sweetheart Fries, Bean Me Up Chili, peach iced tea and lemonade, carrot cake, and chocolate pudding.

Then I met and interviewed Kevin Boylan, the owner. He had some great things to say, and addressed the rumor about having the same recipes as Native Foods.
