Tomorrow I depart for a two week holiday (how server Hinmahtooyah told me I must refer to my vacation!) traveling mostly through northern Italy. The Genuine Kitchen will take a break when I do, but there are plenty of ways for you to stay connected online with all things Genuine during this hiatus. Here’s my recommended list:
Tweet Tweet The chirping in our nest just increased by one decibel. Our Beverage Director Mr. Ryan Goodspeed is tweeting as of this morning @goodspeedryan, so give him some love with a follow. He will return the favor with plenty of 140 character spurts on bitters, bourbon and the like. For the full list of TGHGers on the bird horn, from chef’s assistant Ellie Groden to our Grand Cayman executive chef Thomas Tennant, click here.
Meat Notes While I’m out Miss Ellie will be taking over the @MGFD_MIA Twitter, tweeting lunch and dinner bells to keep you on top of daily menu changes, like this here delicious wabbit pate. She will also be taking over updating our menus online weekly at michaelsgenuine.com. As usual, she’ll be doing the same for Harry’s on its Tumblr. Woof!
It’s Eventful Through the end of March we have lots for you to enjoy outside of the restaurant. Visit the events page for a list of our ongoing events as well as special ones. In some cases, buying tickets online applies, which is good news for you because it’s super easy. Two are top of mind: @MGFD_GCM’s Farm-to-Table Dinner (3/17) and OMG! Dinner & a Movie with Harry’s Pizzeria (3/19).
Kitchen Interviews My own blog is roused from its slumber over the next couple of weeks serving its primary purpose over recent years, chronicling travels. I’ll post the itinerary tomorrow, which begins when I arrive in Roma on Sunday and journeys through Toscana, Piemonte, Valle d’Aosta, Lombardia, Umbria, and back to Roma — some in train and some in macchina! I promise not to text and drive : )
