The Illegal Eater is a travel and food series about underground restaurants starring former Barenaked Ladies singer Steven Page. Each episode follows the singer-songwriter as he visits underground eateries in two cities, such as New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Chicago and Austin. He assists the chefs, hangs out with the locals, plays shows and samples local delicacies. In S01E10, Weird Food Club takes Steven to sample brain quesadillas at La Superior. We think he enjoyed them! The show originally premiered on Canada's network Travel & Escape and was later also syndicated on Esquire network in the US. Continue...

The Independents (Fox Business News) recently reached out to Weird Food Club to bring some interesting local dishes in New York on the show. We had a great time trying lamb brain, testes and tongue from Ali's Kebab in Astoria, some crickets from a Mexican joint, and 1000 year egg from Chinatown. Enjoy the show! Continue...

I had a really great time with Steven. He’s a down to earth, fun and adventurous guy with a great sense of humor. I was seriously impressed by his ability to improvise, one of his signature traits that made Barenaked Ladies famous.

I am proud to announce that I have turned my passion for international food into a new business!
It's called Try The World (www.trytheworld.com)
Try The World is a subscription box service delivering the best products from the most exciting places in the world to your door. Every 60 days, we ship a box of our curated picks from a different country.
We launched this week and are excited to present our first box - the Classic Paris Box.
This box includes some of the finest gourmet products made by family-owned (some over a hundred years old!)businesses using traditional methods sourced from across France. We are most excited about our sel de guerande (considered the most prized of all salts for its texture and complex mineral content), all natural black olive tapenade from the South of France, and a chestnut spread (yes for you weird food lovers, this one might be a hit!)

I am super excited about this box as I have been a huge fan of all things French ever since I lived in Paris for a year back in 2005-2006. We've timed the launch of this box specifically for Mother's Day because pretty much all mothers love French things - n'est ce pas? It really makes a great gift. :)
We are working hard on our next 2 boxes - Tokyo and Istanbul! If you know of any particular amazing Japanese or Turkish products that we simply must include, please send me a note at sayhello at trytheworld dot com.
In the meantime, please like and share our facebook page to stay tuned.

This was my first time visiting Ladurée. I squealed when I saw the store front – decorated with its signature macaron pyramids and fans, purses, and shoes! The magic continued when I entered inside – the rainbow display of macarons, chocolates, candies, jams as well as candles, key chains, stationary, and scarves. It was too hard to decide what I wanted so I got a set of 6 macarons, a green cone of dragee almonds and some white chocolates.
Ladurée’s only store in the United States (864 Madison Avenue, New York) is also introducing a cognac flavored macaron tomorrow. If you’d like to get one for yourself, be prepared to wait in line. We heard that when this store opened, the line circled around 2 blocks. But it’s not just New Yorkers that are dinge for Ladurée, the lines in Paris at Ladurée shops can be just as long!
|The most adorable little box!|
|Mint is my favorite new color – love how it matches my shoes!|
Alexandre, the store manager, divulged that the next Ladurée store will be in Soho on Spring Street, and will likely open in November of 2013. It’s going to be much more than just a macaron shop. It will also be a salon de thés with seating room. In addition to macarons and chocolates, they will offer an assortment of pastries. I can’t wait!
Be sure to check out the two new flavors!
What are your favorite Ladurée flavors?
