  1. Heya,
    I just came across your blog and wanted to see if I could get an email address/name from to you add to the Philly Food Blogger email list. We try to have monthly potlucks at different people’s houses (the last one was at our place).

    And funny that I came across your blog today as I was just talking about Nan Zhou with a coworker today, she highly recommended it and I totally want to go.


  2. Hello,
    Zama, a prestigious sushi restaurant in Philadelphia (129 S. 19th St.) has partnered up with celebrities to create sushi rolls on their behalf. The current celebrities with sushi rolls at Zama are: Philadelphia Eagles Tackle, Winston Justice (Justice for All Roll), Phillies Pitcher, Ryan Madson (Mad Dog Roll), owner of Tony Luke’s cheese steaks, Tony Luke (Tony Luke Roll), and former Flyers Goaltender, Bernie Parent (Hall of Fame Roll). A part of the proceeds for each one of these rolls goes to Variety Club, a children’s charity. Like everything found on the Zama menu, the celebrity rolls are a delicious twist on ordinary Japanese cuisine. Below are some videos of Winston, Madson and Tony Luke making the sushi rolls with Chef Zama as well as a description of each roll.
    Feel free to use any of this video footage or content from the Zama blog that we are providing. For more information or questions contact: Craig Kaplan craig@milkboycommunications.com Or visit: http://zamarestaurant.com/blog/

     Justice for All Roll (spicy tempura snow crab and shishi-toh pepper wrapped in soy paper, topped with tuna and scallion and finished with chopped wasabi mayo and black tobiko):

     Mad Dog Roll (yellowtail, jalapeno, and avocado tempura maki roll and topped with tuna, an avocado-cilantro salsa and a sushi rice crisp):

     Tony Luke Roll (japanese roast beef, asparagus, horseradish, teriyaki and truffle oil, topped with mushrooms) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Y21DIvLELg&feature=player_embedded

    Thank you for your time,

  3. Hi Veggicurious,

    Love your blog! I was wondering if you would be interested in covering a new client of mine, Catalyst. They are two Philadelphia veggie only eaters (one if the former personal chef for Dr. Oz)– they are now producing the Catalyst Cleanse (a 3 to 5 day cleanse) and a “Juicy and Raw” program that incorporated raw foods. I’d love to hear if you think this is something your readership would be interested in and provide you any additional information.

    Let me know.

  6. I’m so glad to have stumbled upon your blog! As, a Philly cooking blogger myself, I was having a hard time finding the same, especially vegetarian related posts. I’m looking forward to following your posts, so keep up the good work!

  7. Hello! I wanted to let you know about a new farm-to-table, under 500 calorie restaurant in University City in Philadelphia! It’s called Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar. There are a ton of local, organic items from food to wines to beers! The menu changes each season so they just rolled out with the winter menu! I really think you’d enjoy checking it out and maybe even writing a review about it!
