It benefits Veggie U – the non-profit children’s education program that teaches the importance of nutrition and sustainable agriculture by providing interactive lesson plans w/ classroom garden kit to elementary schools and special needs students.

Top Chef Lee Anne Wong

We are…and we’re definitely bringing a Dragon too (FYI-2012 is the year of the Dragon).

Also hilarious to get a personal reminder phone call from Chef Jonathon Sawyer (@chefsawyer) about tonight. That dude cracks me up.

Chef Sawyer was prob doing this dance when he called, "This is Jon!"

So, bring your best Chinese tonight and get your Wang Chung on for a Chinese New Year dinner tonight at NoodleCat!

Kung Hee Fat Choy everyone!

After rewatching the episode that Chef Anthony Bourdain (@NoReservations) preaches his love for bottarga, I had to have some.

No Reservations shoot in Sardinia

Even his wife’s thick Sardinian accent made this salted grated fish roe sound so unbelievable.

Ottavia Bourdain - I'd hit that - HAWT (Photo court Splash)

Basically they take the pouch full of roe from mullet or tuna and then salt cure it for 1-2 weeks.


After salt curing, grate as needed.

Voila – you have bottarga.

So I saw it on the menu as a side at NoodleCat (@noodle_cat) so I had to order it.

Bottarga from NoodleCat

I was not impressed.

I was hoping to be punched in the fishy face – but I was dainty greeted with wisps of barely there fish.

I got more action in a tide pool on a windy day.

Maybe I just needed some fresh pasta w/ olive oil for #mixamixa of Bottarga.

I guess I’ve never seen Bottarga served at a Japanese noodle house before.

Maybe I should sprinkle Bottarga on Ottavia…
