Edible Bomb Shot

So it turns out I was lying on my couch watching Terms of Endearment, and this familiar scene sparked just enough motivation. Aurora on her first date, asking for whiskey. “Preferably wild turkey” she says. Due to Instagram’s 15 second stipulation, the film scene is posted before the video. If you follow the account you’ll […]

Champagne and Strawberries

If you follow me on instagram I am doing short videos including food & drink. There will be garments included.. only because… it would be totally weird and inappropriate if I wasn’t wearing any. In this video I’m wearing a Luxirare black oxford top with rhinestone beads and sides flushed with black tulle. Anyhow, all […]

Edible Christmas Tree

IMG_9996

My philosophy on Christmas and holiday festivities in general is that all the family and friend gathering stuff comes second to the bottom line: Eating. What can I say? I coast holiday events to see what kinds of delicious foods I’ll get to consume- hopefully for free. Shameful, but too true. But…there’s slight a problem […]

New Payard

IMG_5208

Recently I or (we) stopped by JG Melons’ to get a burger (not something I do on routine, but geographically it was the best place to get a burger). I thought their burgers were perfection but also I’ve never met a burger I didn’t like, so it’s not like JG Melon’s can become a superlative […]

Sangria Soda

DSC_0092

This sangria was part of another recipe I was about to post, I always like to add a drink with a meal in my post, otherwise it feels so incomplete, but since there are so many photos here I just had to divide and conquer. The situation with Sangria is similar to making a fantastic […]

Hot Pot

DSC_0264

Fall food: something hot, satisfying and maybe even a little fatty. It’s true, I tend to eat more when the weather gets chillier. A smoker may wish his paranoia away, thinking, how nice would it be if I could smoke on and on and never worry about lung cancer. For fall I may have similar, […]

Lobster Roll Redux

DSC_0088

Do you like Lobster Rolls? Yes…? So do I. But today I am only here to use up leftovers. A bunch of green needs to be pulled out because I’ll forget and then a week later they will turn brown. I believe there are a million and one ways to make filling for a lobster […]

Upside Down

DSC_0260

A quick browse through a shop and I had to pick up this clever little beer glass, by the same company that made those frozen shot glasses possible (remember the molds?). You will find the beer glasses here if you’re looking for a new way to serve beer.

Saveur Dinner & Test Kitchen

DSC_5751

Now I don’t think I really need to ask if people know what Saveur Magazine is. I happened to be nominated for an award in one of their categories, for best recipe, guess which recipe? Crispy Penne. Okay so I remain a nominee (nice name for *ahem* LOSER!) but I did get to go to […]

Bar Pleiades

DSC_0263

One constant question I’ve gotten since starting this blog is where to sit down and have a drink in New York City. I am not a seasoned expert at all but my favorite bar right now is in the Surrey Hotel. And there are many bougie hotel bars scattered in the city, four seasons..Plaza Athenee, […]

Whiskey Sour

DSC_3836

Do you like my new Whiskey dispenser? It’s quite efficient actually, just turn the handle 90 degrees. And turn again 90 degrees to lock. Now onto the sour. Lots and lots of fresh lemon juice. Please do not use lemonade. These are simply the best cocktail syrups I’ve found recently. By Royal Rose. ‘Handmade’, ‘artisanal’, […]

World of Whiskey and Leather

DSC_0394_2

Lapel cut with perforated leather. Ever since this post, I’ve been getting requests for that particular style jacket. The thing with this first draft of the quilted biker jacket was that, well it was a rough draft. There were details I wanted to edit and comb over perfectly. And yes because I know that there […]

Luxury is Relative

DSC_6608

A female friend made a quick visit to my studio this morning, and she kindly brought over a sweet gift… And no, they weren’t these flowers. Though flowers are nice too. She’s known me for about 3-4 years now, and knows my alcohol preferences to a tee. …Which leads me to the next photo… What […]

Oyster Cleanser

DSC_4467

This was probably one of the most difficult projects I’ve had to take on thus far, and it wasn’t for this website. It was a project I had to complete for Nowness.com, which is a online magazine that features work by people who contribute creatively to the fashion and arts. As always I was a […]

Early sunday morning

DSC_6244

Today I woke up at 2 am so I was able to do some shooting before starting the day, may visit a friend out of state or may go to the studio, depends on my mood. Also, had to burn some music for my car. Was really tired of listening to my iPhone, craving Harmon […]

Vertical Pregame

final

Some fried foods and beer, and ..some friends. Pregaming. But lets take it vertical. Koreans are heavy drinkers, and they have these things called levels. 1st 2nd 3rd level. 1st could be dinner and drinks, and then 2nd can be going to a bar, and 3rd could be ending up back at someone’s house for […]

Edible shot glasses

DSC_0401

I should have done this months ago, like during the summer as these are frozen alcoholic treats, but better late than never.. I’ll start out with making the Grapefruit Margarita shot glasses first. I used fresh squeeze grapefruit juice, jalapenos, mint and lime juice to flavor the juice. Also added a bit of vodka in […]

Bloodless Mary

DSC_0042

A modern twist on a classic cocktail, the bloody mary. You will have to start out by quartering a lot of tomatoes. First the tomatoes and flavors have to be boiled for about 30 minutes to an hour. This broth is flavored with fennel, onion, bay leaf, basil, salt and pepper. Not putting my hand […]

Vodka Mojitos by Luxirare

DSC_0267

Mojitos are my favorite cocktail, but I know everyone has their own little spin. I don’t like too many flavor twists, I just like the classic recipe but with a little more mint infused simple syrup and more lime (I like them to taste really sour), oh and I prefer vodka instead of rum. …

Coffee

coffeeverticalwip

Coffee Station. This post may only be interesting to people who love coffee, otherwise you’ll probably snore through this whole thing. These kenyan beans have yet to be roasted. I purchased some different beans in their raw state, I like to fresh roast my beans. Coffee bean flavor deteriorates the longer they …
