Alex’s Food Review: Levain’s Bakery

It used to be that when I thought about “instagrammable” NYC food, all I thought of was form-over-function, overpriced, and under portioned dishes that make a well-lit pic from an influencer the best way to enjoy them. If all of this seems unappealing, book a Ram Van (a day in advance!) and head over to Levain Bakery legitimately as soon as possible.

In Defense of the Cafeteria

The cafeteria isn’t so bad. In fact, it’s wonderful, marvelous, and terrific. A cornucopia like the Marketplace, as it is officially called, deserves to be appreciated. I can name no other place where I can get rigatoni topped with tomato sauce and mushrooms then drop tens tongs worth of broccoli on to it.

This is Just a Recipe for Burstin’ Blueberry Protein Muffins

In my short period of free time before I start work, I have been in the kitchen constantly– chopping, blending, dicing and…baking. Ah baking, such a delicate, yet serious form of chemistry that I cannot master.  I rarely recipe write breads or cakes because I just can never get them just right. There is always a problem with the flour or sugar or maybe the oven temperature.  I don’t know.  I just can’t do it correctly.
