Grub Street Food Festival

Today I bring you a guest post from one of my favorite guest posters, my mom. This past weekend Grub Street held their annual food festival at the Hester Street Fair. My parents had a chance to go and my mom is here to share some of the highlights. You can also check out her blog here. All photos by Michael Ginsburg.

On Sunday, we visited the Grub Street Food Festival at the Hester Street Fair, which had displays by more than 100 food vendors. There were tacos and pulled pork and kimchee and jerk chicken and lobster rolls but we tasted the sweets only. (Sorry, but I think it’s in the genes!)

We started at Comfort Food Kitchen where we sampled Anzac Biscuits, named for the World War II cookies sent by wives and girlfriends to the soldiers in the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. They are delicious, chewy cookies made of oats and coconut and golden cane syrup.

We stopped at Danny Macaroons, a favorite of ours, for the moistest, chewiest, tastiest macaroons ever. We had a toasted almond macaroon and a dark chocolate macaroon, both topped with chocolate.

The always charming Simon Tung greeted us at his colorful Macaron Parlour display where we had a chocolate macaron that was filled with a smooth dark chocolate ganache.

At the Filled with Sweets stand, we had a molasses sandwich cookie made with black sugar and filled with coffee cream. A delightful combination; next time we’ll try the pumpkin whoopie pie.

And kudos to the best dressed – both salespeople and cupcakes. Audrey Mak, pictured at top, and her Audrey’s Concerto cupcakes, all decked out for Halloween.
