We’re just winding down from our Thanksgiving/Hanukkah celebrations and we’re gearing up for a busy holiday season! Since it’s the start of December, we wanted to start off the month with a giveaway, you know, just to get you in the mood for the Christmas season. Our friend Maggie, over at Eat Boutique, has generously given us two general admission tickets ($20 each) to the Eat Boutique Holiday Market, which is happening this coming Saturday, December 7th at Cruiseport Boston’s Black Falcon Cruise Terminal. If you aren’t familiar with Eat Boutique, it was started in 2007 as an online magazine and marketplace that celebrates local and small batch foods. Over the past couple of years, they’ve been running a holiday market as well, which gives the people behind all of these great local products, and the consumers that love them, a chance to connect in person. Available at this year’s holiday market, Mei Mei Street Kitchen, Island Creek Oysters and Union Square Donuts, to name a few. Additionally, a couple of cookbook authors, including Joanne Chang, Karen Covey and more, will be on hand to chat and sign cookbooks and small batch wine, cider, beer and cordial tastings will be available as well. If you’re interested in attending and you’d like to be entered to win the two free tickets, all you have to do is leave a comment, telling us what some of your favorite small, local food companies are. You’ll get a bonus entry if you mention a tweet (just be sure to mention us, @TheSkinnyBeet so we know that you entered). One winner will be selected on Wednesday afternoon and that person will receive both tickets and enjoy a day full of local, food and beverage fun!

Man, where does the time go? I’m sure a lot of it has to do with the wedding and the honeymoon (Italy, sigh) but this year has flown by. We are still doing our thing, taking on more and more personal chef clients, talking to other lovely couples about catering their weddings next year, and booking private holiday parties for the next couple of months. Phew. In addition to all of that, Katie has started writing for Eater Boston (!!!) and Richard is still going strong contributing to Boston Magazine with two columns now. And then there’s the podcast, which we are so excited for, we’ve had a wonderful lineup of chefs, photographers, bloggers, bartenders and restauranteurs, and some incredible people lined up for future episodes. Richard also just launched the Boston Burger Blog App (free for iTunes) and somewhere in all of that we’ve found the time to cook lots of fun projects at home, including homemade cheese and our own bitters. So keep checking back as we can’t wait share more news, recipes and all of our latest cooking adventures in the weeks to come. Cheers!!

We’ve been having a blast recording our Podcast, The Skinny Beet Dinner Party, over the last few months. We started this Podcast in conjunction with the folks at Tell Me Something and while we’re still learning as we go, we’re really having a great time. So far we’ve had some sensational guests on, with folks coming from the restaurant world, music scene and more. We’re pretty much talking all food all the time, (sometimes it’s overkill talking about our own wedding, but can you blame us?) but it’s been fun mixing it up with different people along the way.
While we chat, we always have a few snacks on hand, recently we snacked on some Sweet and Salty Watermelon Skewers as well as Muhammara with Sesame Rounds. What’s really fun about having new guests is that we get to talk about different subjects that we probably wouldn’t touch on otherwise. We never really know what’s going to come up in conversation. Did you know you can subscribe to our show on iTunes? Well you can, so get on it Recently we found out our numbers have been growing quickly, we are so humbled and flattered that people are listening and love all the support we can get.
If you are someone in the Restaurant industry, a Blogger or just someone interested in food and you want to be a guest on our show, please drop us a line at ChefsRCKB@gmail.com. Additionally, if you are interested in sponsoring a podcast, either by way of money or samples of your product, please send us a note. We’ve been delighted (and happily full) enjoying delicious treats from our fist sponsor, Becca Bakes as well as our friends over at Pretzel Crisps! As always, thanks for staying in touch and for your ongoing support of The Skinny Beet!
