Celebrity Cruises Healthy Dining Event: Vegetables Are Hot!

When Celebrity Cruises wanted to showcase their commitment to more than just all-you-can-eat restaurants at sea, they put together a showcase featuring some of the biggest names in fine dining. Food & Wine Editor Dana Cowin hosted the discussion with Landmarc owner and chef Marc Murphy, Jeremy Bearman Executive Chef at Michelin-star-rated Rouge Tomate, Celebrity Cruises’s Directory of Culinary Operations John Suley and SPE Senior Culinary Nutritionist Natalia Hancock. They talked about food trends, what impact all those food allergies are having in the kitchen and in this case, how vegetables have become the new center of the plate at the finest restaurants. Cauliflower steak anyone?

Aloft Hotel Harlem @ The Apollo

Starwood’s Aloft Hotel brand chose to open its first New York City location in Harlem and since Aloft is all about being a try part of the communities they build in, that meant a little bit different way to hire the staff. Aloft chose an open call at the historic Apollo Theater and asked use to capture the day on video. The fun vibe made it a must-see for travel reporters looking to tell the Aloft Harlem story.

You can tell Murphy has been on Chopped and Iron Chef from his thoughts about killing diners (by accident).

Cuties Hit New York

Every mom west of the Mississippi knows all about Cuties — those amazingly sweet and juicy little easy-to-peel oranges that kids (and the rest of us) love. So when Cuties made the move east, they brought their launch party to Times Square, invited then-CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien, Sherry Shepard from The View, and the 9-year-old Twin Chefs Lilly and Audrey Andrews and then opened the doors to hundreds of moms and kids for a day of games, demonstrations and, of course, Cuties! We captured everything for a fast-turnaround VNR, b-roll packages, and interviews.

Benno and the Ballerina

Lincoln Ristorante is a showcase. The jewelbox wedge that seems to cut through the Lincoln Center plaza like a angular submarine surfacing is one the finest works designed by renowned architects Diller, Scofidio & Renfro. The cuisine created is by Jonathan Benno — the former Chef de Cuisine at Per Se — who treats his locally-sourced ingredients like works of art unto themselves. And what a perfect place to do so — at one of the great centers for art in the world, Lincoln Center. Turns out the artists on stage have far more in common with the artists in the kitchen than you might think. New York City Ballet’s Principal Dancer Maria Kowoski sat down to talk dance, food and art with Chef Benno.

Lincoln Ristorante: A Look Inside

The cuisine created is by Jonathan Benno — the former Chef de Cuisine at Per Se — who treats his locally-sourced ingredients like works of art unto themselves. The reviews since it opened in 2010 have focused on the team’s exquisite delivery on the promise of Italian food treated with the kind of respect reserved for the cuisine of their French neighbors. This is one a series of videos that helped launch Lincoln’s food, drink and style to the world.
