What a great trip! The cookbook tour has started off on a great note with fun and high energy interviews from the Today show to VH1 to Sirius Radio and a whole bunch of other things in between. I LOVE New York City! It's such a fast paced, vibrant place with an endless amount of entertainment and food (oh, the food!). I made the most of my time there and managed to check off Chelsea Market, The High Line, Soho, Central Park, MoMA, Central Station, 5th Ave., the subway, Rockefeller Center, Gramercy Tavern, David Chang's Ma Peche and Milk Bar, ABC Kitchen and Blue Ribbon Sushi (just to name a few).
For a first timer, I would say I did alright. I can't wait to go back!
Links to the Today Show and VH1 at the end!
Anders hard at work promoting the book. Interview from the hotel room.
Donut Plant! Best donuts in the country. We got a peanut butter and jelly, coconut cream and tres leche.

The best way to celebrate the book is with a birthday cake from the Milk Bar (pastry chef, Christina Tosi, is a genius!)

Starry Night at the MoMA. So wonderful to see it in person.
My absolute favorite piece at the MoMA was Wolfgang Laib's Pollen from Hazelnut, which was literally pollen from hazelnuts. He has been collecting pollen since 1970s, and it's all on display here. So lovely.
