NYC is quite possibly my favourite place on the planet, I adore the buzz, architecture, shopping, people, landscapes and definitely the food.
If you visit then a stop off to Katz’s Deli on East Houston Street is a MUST - they serve pastrami sandwiches on rye bread, the Don of all sandwiches - it is absolutely delicious and may just blow your mind.
Loads of famous people have visited and it’s always packed to the rafters with New Yorkers, a very good sign.
Also it’s where Harry met Sally (see photo above)
Katz’s Delicatessen, also known as simply Katz’s Deli, is a Jewish kosher style delicatessen on the Lower East Side of New York City, located at 205 E. Houston Street, on the south-west corner of Houston and Ludlow Streets, in Manhattan.
Since its founding in 1888, it has become popular among locals and tourists alike for its pastrami sandwiches and hot dogs, both of which are widely considered among New York’s best.
Each week, Katz’s serves 5,000 pounds of corned beef, 2,000 pounds of salami and 12,000 hot dogs.
In my humble opinion, soup is very underrated - it’s a great light snack, warming, the ingredients can be extremely versatile, easy to make and you can cook lots of it and then just freeze it in batches. Yum.
I adore french cuisine, classic and non fussy but packed with flavour and if cooked correctly, delicious. This soup is an absolute classic and is tastes divine.
As usual I entrusted my favourite cooking website Good Food for the [recipe] and can promise you it’s absolutely easy to make and delicious.
Use concentrated beef stock and avoid the cube if you can, it gives the soup a real depth of flavour and I picked it up for a £1 in T****O - bargain
I cooked a loaf of bread using a packet mix (cheating, but I’m not perfect) it’s well worth doing, absolutely heavenly and you feel a real sense of achievement - also the smell is amazing :)
