I interrupt your regularly scheduled programming on this lovely blue-skied Sunday morning to bring you a very important announcement.

Tonight.  At exactly 9PM Eastern Standard Time, the Eats Well With Others kitchen will be hosting an extravaganza unlike any other that’s ever been held before on the Weill Cornell Medical College campus.

And possibly unlike any other that’s ever been held this side of the Rocky Mountains.

(I make no claim to the west coast, however.  There are some crazy things that go down there.  I can’t even begin to compete.)

Taste buds will burn with glee:


Seemingly insatiable peanut butter cravings will be satisfied:

Worlds will be turned upside down:

Philosophical questions that ask what it really means to be a french fry will be pondered.  And then food processed:

Stomachs will be filled to the brim:

Just make sure to save room for dessert:

So if you are in the NYC area and want to stop by around 9PM for a little french fry taste testing and voting, shoot me an email.  And for the rest of you who do not  live in the tri-state area (why? I think you need to move.  We should really be neighbors.), have no fear.  A poll is going to go up tomorrow with the top three finalists from tonight’s festivities and then it is going to be up to you to decide which recipe I am going to submit to the Alexia Foods Reinvent A Classic competition.

The fate of french fries everywhere rests in your hands.  God speed.

  11. Sounds good enough to make me get in the car and head over the bridge from New Jersey. 🙂
    Have fun and hope it goes well. Looks like you have some exciting flavors in the works.

  12. Next time, give me more notice please. I’ve been known to travel great distances for food tastings.

  18. Sam says:

    9 PM is WAY too late for me to drag myself to Manhattan on a school night. Yet another drawback of teaching summer school to add to the list. Sigh.

  19. That Girl says:

    Sounds like so much fun!

  20. Angela says:

    If only I lived in NY;)

  21. Caronae says:

    I wish I was there right now! But never fear. I’ll be back. Circa August 2011. Get excited. 🙂

    I was just rereading some of my posts from last summer and read about our adventures at the Meatball Shop. That place was seriously awesome. We need to do some more restaurant exploring when I get back chica!

  22. sweetlife says:

  26. tigerfish says:

    Good luck to you! Looks like a great invention is on the way 🙂

  27. Bob says:

    Well, I *want* to go, but unfortunately I’m stuck in Boston. Plus I’m an unsavory character, you don’t want me lurking around your neighborhood. Heh.

  28. Julie says:

    what in the good lord’s name are you doing with those fries. you have WAY too many ingredients out there. i just don’t understand but i’m almost too excited to see what it is..let’s go SHARE IT.

  29. Ada says:

    Man, that sounds awesome! Wish I could have attended but have to much studying to do:( We need a date soon though! That cherry upside down cake looks amazing, by the way. Probably my ideal cake if I ever had to design one. And, um, first date???? I need more details! Preferably over dosas in Jackson Heights. I hope you had a fun time!!!

  30. Cara says:

    If I read this any earlier, I would have sent my brother knocking on your door in my place!

  31. If I were in the NYC area, you know I’d totally be up for some bad-ass french fry tasting! I’ve been seeing some cool creations on other blogs too. I LOVE the wasabi idea!

  32. Little Inbox says:

    Good luck to you and have fun!

  33. Awww I wish I was in NY!! Have an awesome time 😀

  34. sophia says:

    I’m huffing and puffing and pouting because I’m not in NYC> You know I’ll join you in a heartbeat if I could!!!

  35. Can’t wait to see how it all turns out. Wish I was there… or you could come here and recreate it!

  36. I can’t wait to see what you cooked with all of those ingredients.. looks great!!

  37. I think you should go on tour with your french fry tasting plan. Way more tastier than going to med school, don’t you think?

  38. I wish I could drop by! Sounds like a fun time. Back when I was in Delaware I would have considered coming up . . . but Chicago lies a little further away. Alas.

  40. Does Fed Ex deliver hot, crispy French Fries? If not, I am considering buying a plane ticket . . .


  41. I voted (wasabi all the way!) and what I wouldn’t do to live down the street so I could come and taste test!!

  42. peachkins says:

    Those noodles look good…
    I’m not very successful with growing herbs. I don’t think herbs like me very much…

  43. I want some of those noodles.
    Even without sangria or advil I am pretty sure they would make a most delicious breakfast.

  44. Tiffany says:

    I would love to do that! I love French Fries and your picture of sweet potato pie fries look amazing!
