Tandoor House of Kabob serves delicious and authentic flavors of Middle East

Tandoor House of Kabob in Parkville delicious and authentic flavors of Middle Eastern cuisine with organic and halal meats and made to order Naan in the tandoor. The dishes are flavored with spices from Iran, such as sumac, saffron and barberry.

The menu maybe small but it is packed with flavor. The gyro is the biggest I have seen and is freshly sliced lamb from the skewer. Then served with lettuce, tomato, onion and a traditional yogurt sauce wrapped on a warm pita from the tandoor for $6.99. I usually can make two meals from this gyro.

If you in the mood for kabobs you can pick from beef, chicken, shisk and lamb – or even go for a combo of meats (ranging from $12.99 - $14.99). All of the entrees are served with our Persian Soltani rice, cooked using onion juice to aid in digestion.

A great side dish to try is the shirazi made from chopped cucumber, tomato, fresh herbs and onion, served with house dressing for $2.99.

They also offer traditional baklava and other Middle Eastern deserts to round out your meal.
Every time I have been the service is friendly and on point. You can dine in or carry out – dining in offers BYOB with no corkage fees.

Since this is so close to our house it has become a favorite carry out for us!

They are expanding and opening a second location in the Federal Hill area.

Waterfront Kitchen announces late October opening in Fells Point

With a sweeping harbor view and spirited American menu, the new Waterfront Kitchen restaurant will open in late October at the westernmost tip of Thames Street in Fells Point. Located on the first floor of the Living Classroom's Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Museum, the restaurant will seat 75 inside and up to 100 people outside on the deck and waterside promenade.

The menu, designed by long-time local chef Jerry Pellegrino of Corks Restaurant, will emphasize seasonal ingredients, including those grown by participants in Living Classrooms Foundation's BUGS (Baltimore Urban Gardening with Students) program. BUGS, which serves inner-city grade school children, maintains a greenhouse and gardens just a few blocks away on Caroline Street.
Waterfront Kitchen is owned by Charles Nabit and Michael Klein. "Relating the restaurant to the educational mission of Living Classrooms makes this a most rewarding project," says Nabit. "A sophisticated menu and wine list, paired with the concept of mission-driven dining, will translate into a great experience at the table for our guests."
In the spring, with guidance from Pellegrino and Waterfront Kitchen chef de cuisine Levi Briggs, BUGS will grow produce specifically for the restaurant. The restaurant will also function as a training facility for Living Classrooms' Project Serve, preparing at-risk men and women for careers in food service.

The interior, by Patrick Sutton Interior Design, features 35 feet of glass facing the water and fresh, clean colors - spring grass green, cream and deep copper -- that contrast with the harbor view. The $1.5 million renovation will include patio heating to create a seven-month season for dining outdoors.
The view is sensational, encompassing the shoreline of Canton to the east, the industrial landscape of Tide Point and Domino Sugar factory to the south, and the final bend of the Patapsco River as it enters Baltimore's Inner Harbor to the west.

Pellegrino is delighted to offer his unique brand of culinary inspiration to the project. "Everyone working on Waterfront Kitchen feels honored to have this connection with the Living Classrooms. Add in the phenomenal view and gorgeous design, and I think we have something with terrific appeal for locals and tourists alike."

Waterfront Kitchen, which offers sweeping harbor views and a seasonal menu of spirited American cuisine, is located in Fells Point at 1417 Thames Street in Baltimore, Maryland. It will be open for lunch and dinner, Tuesday through Saturday, and brunch on Sunday, beginning in late October. Reservations are recommended. Valet parking will be available at dinnertime. The restaurant may also be reached by Water Taxi, at stop #8.

Chazz: A Bronx Original celebrates the harvest with fun fall cocktails

The leaves are starting to change, there’s a slight chill in the air and Halloween decorations are popping up everywhere. Summer is officially over, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t relax and enjoy a few drinks. Taking inspiration from all things autumn, Chazz: A Bronx Original has created six new handcrafted cocktails to help curb your end-of-summer blues.
  • Spiced Plum Soda- A fall twist on a summer smashed cocktail. A slice of fresh, juicy plum is muddled with homemade, spiced plum syrup. Imported rum adds a sweet, toasty note and soda adds the necessary whimsicality for a surprisingly refreshing and dangerously drinkable cocktail. $9
  • La Pera -Pear Cocktail- Bold, refreshing… the unmistakable burst of fresh fruit in our pear cocktail is due to our fresh pear purée, combined with pear vodka and accented by St. Germain, adding an elegant and fragrant hint of elderflower. $11
  • La Mela - Fall Apple Martini- Few things bring autumn to mind as vibrantly or as deliciously as apples. Fresh, local apple cider is combined with vodka in the perfect balance to create a simple, crisp and delightful reminder of the fall harvest. $11
  • The Rusty Nail- New York’s famous ‘21 Club’ christened this cocktail the “rusty nail” in the 1930s. Scotch on the rocks is laced with the lingering, aromatic flavor of honey thanks to Drambuie - a combination of Scotch blends and heather honey. To add balance to this classic, we add a dash of Fernet Branca, introducing the faintest hint of spicy notes. A cozy, fireside cocktail. $11
  • The Classic Sidecar- In the 1920s, the Sidecar became a signature drink for the Hemmingway expat crowd in postwar Paris, who enjoyed its harmonious combination of cognac, fresh-squeezed lemon juice and Cointreau. Our Sidecar hits all the right notes, with its neatly sugarcoated rim, pale opacity, and a tartness that makes it impossible to tell where the lemon lets off and the Cointreau begins. $12
  • Hot Toddy- The perfect constitutional to ward off the chill of the season. We blend warm, homemade fall spice tea with Buillet bourbon, fresh-squeezed lemon juice and a splash of Averna for balance. $9
“At Chazz, we only use fruit juices that were squeezed that day, premium liquors and housemade mixers to create our distinctive cocktails,” said Sergio Vitale, Chef/Co-Owner. “When crafting our new drinks, we took inspiration from the sights, smells and tastes of the season, and made sure they paired perfectly with our coal-fired pizza, homemade pasta and other Italian-American specialties.”
Chazz: A Bronx Original has happy hour specials five days a week from 4-7 p.m., including $5 handcrafted cocktails, ½ price wine and draught beers, and a $5 food menu.

My review of Chazz: A Bronx Original takes you on a journey to the Bronx

Hamilton Bakery offers great neighborhood treats

There is a new bakery in town in the Hamilton neighborhood called Hamilton Bakery. Their goal is to provide the highest quality baked goods using quality ingredients from local sources and organic flours and sugars. They use no preservatives, dyes or artificial extenders in their products (real butter, eggs, vanilla and other all natural ingredients).

Every time I have walked in I have been greeted with a warm hello and smile not just the wonderful aromas of all the delightful goods! The menu offers fresh baked bread, pastries, cakes, cookies and quiche. Menu items change with the seasons.

Of all the items I have tried my top two favorites are their Strawberry Shortcake and the Lemon Bars. Both of these treats are from my childhood – each now only was super tasty but brought back some great memories with each bite!

Right now the menu is host to some great fall items: cranberry/pecan/orange scones, pumpkin pie, or a butternut squash/apple danish.

Hamilton Bakery was ranked #2 on the list of the Top 10 Cupcakes in Baltimore for 2011 by Baltimore Magazine!

Feel free to order a hot or cold drink and enjoy a delectable treat! The location of this establishment is bad for my diet since it’s in the neighborhood of the school I teach at!

Chef Anne Burrell is coming to Baltimore plus enter to win her new cookbook

Come meet Anne Burrell, chef and author of "Cook Like A Rock Star: 125 Recipes, Lessons and Culinary Secrets” at Wegman’s in Hunt Valley on Friday, October 7 from 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM (Reserve your place in line by getting a ticket to attend at any That's The Ticket located at the Service Desk. Space is limited.)

Anne Burrell believes that food is essential to happiness. She makes this outlook abundantly clear on her Food Network show, Secrets of a Restaurant Chef (in its seventh season) and as co-host of the primetime hit Worst Cooks in America (in its second season). While Anne is a professional by training and pedigree, the food she makes isn’t elitist; it’s spirited and infused with the bold flavors and passion that are her signature—or, as she likes to say, food that includes the “sparkle factor.” In Cook Like a Rock Star, her debut cookbook, Anne will give home cooks the confidence and support they need to be rock stars in their own kitchens and to create food inspired by Anne’s life in professional kitchens. Best of all, these 125 restaurant-quality recipes are designed for home cooks, from beginners to experts. Each recipe is broken down into key parts to make the process of learning and doing as simple as possible—the way Anne herself does it—and will include easy-to-find ingredients and tips on skills and prepping techniques.

Cook Like a Rock Star features the same forthright approach and constant reassurance that Anne is known for on her shows and will be a complete package with Anne’s spunky personality, handwritten notes, and vibrant photographs to inspire and entice you. Whether she's telling us how to use garlic most effectively (“perfume the oil, remove the garlic, and ditch it—it’s fulfilled its garlic destiny!”) or reaffirming the most important part of cooking (“at the end of the day the food should taste good!”), the reader will never feel alone at the stove. In Cook Like a Rock Star, Anne’s effervescent personality and unmatched vitality will be there every step of the way—as teacher, coach, cooking partner, and friend.
“Anne Burrell has rocked in some of New York’s best Italian kitchens, she’s rocked the Food Network, and now she’s gonna help you rock your kitchen with this book.”
--GUY FIERI
“Anne Burrell is the real deal. TV or no TV, famous or not, you put her in front of a stove and she will cook your ass under the table.”
--ANTHONY BOURDAIN
I got an advanced copy and have already been drooling over the recipes- some recipes that have caught my eye include:
  • Zucchini & Parm Fritters with Spicy Tomato Sauce
  • Pumpkin Soup with Allspice Whipped Cream & Fried Leeks
  • Killer Mac & Cheese with Bacon
  • Rack of Lamb Crusted with Black Olives
  • Braised Baby Artichokes
  • Apple & Olive Oil Cake with Sautéed Apples & Mascarpone
This book is going to become a new staple in my cooking!!!!!!
