My Most Favorite Food…And Story!

MY MOST FAVORITE FOOD NYCDuring my annual girls trip in NYC this weekend, I had the most inspirational lunch at #MyMostFavoriteFood where Doris Schechter shares her family’s amazing journey that spans four generations, three countries, and countless shared meal recipes! 

This kosher restaurant, in the upper west side of the city, is a warm account of one family’s journey to America and how food kept them close long after their arrival. I have the pleasure of knowing the family personally. One of my best friends from the University of Miami, and my little sister in my sorority, is Doris’ granddaughter, and I couldn’t be more grateful to be able to share and experience time with this inspiring family. Plus- I got to meet Doris’ biggest role model and friend, Ruth Gruber.

Adidas Game Day Fashion

Adidas UM FashionSo Adidas decided to hit Nike where it hurts — at least sentimentally. The University of Miami was the original Nike school. Back in 1987 they signed a deal with Nike to exclusively supply uniforms for all of its teams. That’s common practice now, but at the time it was unheard of. Apparently, however, Nike didn’t want to keep shelling out the big bucks and Adidas swooped in. It offered Miami a 12-year-deal (the longest deal Adidas has with any school), rumored to be worth as much as $90 million. And the University of Miami students could not be happier! We now have an endless amount of game day options! My personal favorite? This Miami Hurricanes Jersey Dress!

Miami Smokers

MIAMI SMOKERSYou can’t be in Miami without having lechon at some point… And owners of Miami Smokers, Andres Barrientos and James Bowers, cure and smoke Heritage Breed pasture-raised pigs in tons of different ways to satisfy to these needs! Chances are you’ve had a taste of their no antibiotic and hormone-free candied bacon in a burger at Kush, in the chicken and waffles at Eating House, or in some ice cream at Azucar. But how about making a stop at their own restaurant in Little Havana?!

“We wanted to be in Little Havana because we wanted to be within the Miami city limits, and it’s what we’re all about,” says Barrientos.
