Dave Lieberman's Cravings

I love Dave Lieberman news!

Starting June 1, select W Hotels in North America will begin offering Cravings by Dave Lieberman--a tantalizing and tasty new menu featuring Dave Lieberman’s deliciously delightful, globally-inspired foods with a tWist.

(Isn't that cute that the press release writes "tWist" with a capital "W"??? I bet that would get old writing every word that way.)

Inspired by the fresh flavors of W’s upcoming global destinations, W Hotels’ Cravings by Dave Lieberman menu debuts at the W brand’s signature bars, Living Rooms and on the W Hotels in-room dining menu. W Hotels will unveil Lieberman’s menu with three exclusive W Happenings events, beginning at W San Diego on May 20, W Chicago-City Center on May 23 and W New York-The Tuscany on May 28, 2008.

(I'm going to be in Chicago on May 23!!!)

"We’re getting raves for our craves with Dave’s new Cravings menu for W,” said Ross Klein, President of Starwood’s Luxury Brands Group. "Whether hanging out poolside, in our lively Living Rooms, or enjoying some in-room downtime, W guests and local loyalists will love Dave’s playful new menu for W.”

Inspired by his love affair with global cuisine, Lieberman created exclusive offerings reflective of W’s upcoming global destinations, from Atlanta to Austin, Milan to Marrakech, Santiago to Spain and everywhere in between. The result is true global gastronomy of sizzling and satisfying treats featuring dishes such as Truffled Taleggio Grilled Cheese (inspired by the upcoming W Milan) and Chicken Kebabs (inspired by the upcoming W Marrakech). "I’m excited to debut the new Cravings menu which was inspired by the W brand’s upcoming global destinations,” said Chef Dave Lieberman. "All of the menu items feature foods that we find ourselves craving mixed with unexpected flavors and ingredients to give them my own personal twist.”

Cravings by Dave Lieberman will be available at select W Hotels in North America from June 2008 through April 2009 with new menu items added by Dave each season.

Any review of Mary Nolan's premiere of "Chic and Easy" forthcoming?

Ummm.... I was out of town this past weekend, but I watched the first episode on Monday. I want to watch another one before I give my opinion, as I didn't think the first one was very good. Maybe it was a fluke. (This is probably Mary Nolan herself asking me, right?) =)

No, it isn't Mary, it's Caroline, who in the past has been a champion of Amy Finley on your blog. (I post using the "Anonymous" appellation because it doesn't seem to strain my ancient laptop as much as the other options).

I watched the first "Chic and Easy" and, although I thought Mary was a pleasant, fresh-faced young woman I couldn't figure out what the value added is. Her dishes and her cuisine philosophy are hardly novel - who doesn't value local food these days? - and her background doesn't seem to distinguish her at this point. (Giada and Ina are good cooks, but they also had cache. Giada brought the entire de Laurentiis family along with her, and Ina had not only her famous store but also Jeffrey Garten, whose name means something in foreign policy circles. Even Amy, who got people's backs up with her frequent references to Paris, had indeed gone to culinary school in France).

In fact, I think Mary needs to scroll back a little on the "local food" schtick. Her story about chicken dinners on her grandfather's farm being more meaningful because the children knew the chickens as individuals struck me, as a parent, as rather implausible. NO parent who values his or her sanity and eardrums would encourage their child to make friends with an animal they were about the eat...
