AFAR Friday Feature: The Perfect Long Weekend Getaway to Bermuda

Friday, September 30, 2016 at 10:09 PM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

When you need an East Coast getaway—fast—Bermuda is a fantastic option. It’s closer than the Caribbean, yet offers up the key ingredients of an island getaway: luxurious resorts, locavore restaurants, those famously pink sand beaches, and the most crystal clear turquoise waters I’ve ever seen.

I recently set off on my first adventure to Bermuda and, as you can tell, it won me over—with its beauty, multicultural charm, and convenience. My flight from NYC took less than 2 hours, and I was lying on a powder-soft sand beach (Rum Swizzle in hand) by noon on my arrival day.

Take a cue from my trip for an easy, breezy Bermuda weekend of your own. Read the full, original article on AFAR’s The Wayfarer here.

2013 Cochon 555 NYC: Princess of Porc Competition

Saturday, March 2, 2013 at 01:03 PM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

The fifth anniversary of Cochon 555 kicked off in NYC with the tour’s first-ever all-female lineup of chefs. The nationwide traveling culinary competition, designed to raise awareness of heritage breed pigs and sustainable practices, challenged Big Apple chefs Alex Guarnaschelli, Missy Robbins, Elizabeth Falkner, Leah Cohen and Shanna Pacifico to create a multi-course menu using an entire 200-lb. porker, from nose-to-tail. Hundreds of swine-loving gourmands gathered in Chelsea’s Pier Sixty to savor the meat-centric spread, while sipping wine from five different producers, a variety of spirits and punches from local mixologists.

A panel of esteemed chefs and judges, along with the crowd, voted for their favorite of the day. Besides scoring the ultimate bragging rights, the winning chef was crowned Princess of Porc and will advance to compete at Grand Cochon during the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen. Cochon 555 founder Brady Lowe invited me to shoot a video at the action-packed event. Check out the clip below to see which fierce female was crowned 2013 NYC Princess of Porc!

Congratulations to Brady and everyone who participated!
