Here are some of the outrageous Halloween offerings by some of NY’s Culinary Finest.
Rachael Ray proposes a festive cocktail: consisting of 12 ounces of her famous EVOO topped with pumpkin spice and 6 shots of Ciroc or Goldschlager. She suggests that you drink it out of little plastic pumpkin lanterns.
She guarantees that this one will have you mov’n for Halloween.
Dominique Ansel has a new creation called the Cro-Bar.
It consists of two plastic laminated Cronuts attached to a genuine heavy gage steel crowbar.
You can use this creation to knock out as many a patrons ahead of you on the waiting line -for their morning cronut ration- as you like.
Celebrity Teen Chef Flynn McGarry
who is just 17 has recently moved to NYC to open some pop up eating gigs beginning at Kava. For Halloween he is offering Twinkees wrapped in bacon in a reduction of Orange Crush and Axelrod’s Yogurt. It is accompanied by pickled hard-boiled eggs in an orange tie dye. Flynn reports that since his mother recently cut off the credit cards he is forced to shop for the first time in actual supermarkets, deli’s and bodega’s where he has discovered these and other delicacies for the budget conscious.
Le Bernadin’s Eric Ripert
has created a Halloween tribute to the Hudson River consisting of freshwater Chelsea Pier mussels and octopus poached in WD 40
It’s topped with a slaw of his pal Anthony Bourdains’s and his soon to be ex Olivia Busia’s shredded credit cards. Ripert hopes to offer this dish at Bourdain’s 60,000 sq ft food hall, now scheduled to open in a few years. Guess where it is? Pier 57 on the Hudson.
Iron Chef Bobby Flay makes a wonderfully personalized dessert; Asiago Crème Brulee. It’s topped with genuine candied red hair clippings from guess who?
because she is too busy running 8 Milk Bars, hosting Master Chef, getting married,buying a cool NYC apartment, and just being the “it” girl of the food world, can only offer a bowl of Turkey Hill Orange Sherbet. It is, however, sprinkled in her own gold tipped nail filing dust and topped with signature rice crispies.
Hey Happy Halloween and we wonder whether actual celebrity chef tidbits of hair and nails will become a new food trend and signal an era of cannibalism started, of course, by Trump.
