And so the journey ends.

I have finished it. I began at 1:30 AM, but succumbed to a power nap from 5:00 AM to 9:00 AM as the words began to quiver on the page — and due to no magical spell. Resuming at 9:00, I finished at 1:30 PM. Now I am just sitting, absorbing. My best wishes to all who are still reading. It is a rollercoaster from page 1.

As the Time-Turner Turns…

:::Potter Log, 5:00 PM, July 20th, 2007::: Midnight approaches. As the clock ticks softly, I assemble the pieces of my Severus Snape costume. I have not forgotten the wand. Two miniature Harry Potters prepare themselves to appear at my side. One refuses to wear the lightning scar. The other has broken his glasses. They must nap. First to New Paltz, where we shall quaff butterbeer and partake of several chocolate frogs. Perhaps a vomit-flavored Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Bean. As the clock strikes twelve, we shall return to the Mothership, where the bounty of Potter treasure awaits…and the twins get…

The Final Countdown

18 Jul 2007, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in food

Yes, the time is nigh. Less than 3 days remain until we learn the fate of someone who, for many of us, has been a decade-long companion. I’m speaking, of course, of my dear Harry Potter (or, in the words of my favorite black-haired, sneering professor, “Poh-TAH!”). After summers of endless speculation, re-reading and discussion, some note-taking, and even questions about the food at Hogwarts, mere hours remain until we get to the end. The END. I have cleared my calendar from midnight, July 20th through noon, July 21st, and woe unto the person who attempts to disturb me in…

Baker’s Edge is Back!

19 Jun 2007, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in food

After what seems like an eternity, Baker’s Edge brownie pans are at last back on the market in their new incarnation, which includes a non-stick coating both inside and out for easy cleaning. We’ve had so many requests the past few months, and unfortunately had to turn people away because there was not a pan to be had in America — so if you are still in the market for one of these babies, get thee to the Gilded Fork Boutique! food, baking, Edge Brownie Pan, Baker’s Edge, brownies, bakeware

Will My Heart Stay Here?

04 May 2007, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in food

Chef Mark and I are running amok in San Francisco for meetings with PodShow and other friends of ours, so in the midst of all that we’ve had the pleasure of sampling various beers, sausages (wild boar…mmmm), and best of all, a dinner at The Stinking Rose (we reviewed the cookbook last year on the Gilded Fork). The dinner was delish, but I must say that I’m glad no dates were on my schedule for last night! Now we’re off to Napa and Sonoma for the weekend with our dear friend Rosina Tinari Wilson, so stay tuned for more updates!…

Chef Hats Off!

11 Apr 2007, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in food

You know, the Gilded Fork test kitchen would not be what it is without the royals, Queen Lia and the Pastry Princess (a.k.a. Lia Soscia and Monica Glass). Just last night, Chef Mark and I were marveling at how much these two have contributed to our recipe section, from kitchen tips to photos to mouthwatering combinations of ingredients. So thank you, ladies, for all you do here. Our chef hats are off to you, and we are not only grateful for, but inspired by, your contributions to the Gilded Fork. Ooh, the elves are going to be so jealous.

PodCamp NYC

08 Apr 2007, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in food

Mark and I spent the weekend at PodCamp NYC with our fellow podcasters and new media brethren (and sistren?), and we had a blast! We finally got to meet some of the people who are part of our daily lives, and hugs were given all around. The spirit of camaraderie at PodCamp was exhilarating — there were recorders and earbuds as far as the eye could see, and more than anything else, a desire to share information so we could each take our mission of new media to the next level. Best of all, it was an un-conference, so sessions…

Valentine’s Day Seduction

04 Feb 2007, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in food, sensuality

This is about the time of year when I start hearing from male friends both near and far. “Jennifer, I want to do something special on Valentine’s Day for my wife/girlfriend/latest conquest, but I have no idea what I’m doing in the kitchen. Can you please, please help me?” Ah, these poor lost souls. I have taught cooking lessons by e-mail, tutored in the art of sensory seduction via Skype, and generally tried to make the world a more sensual place; but I realize that even the fastest learners have limitations. So this year, instead of wringing my hands as…
