Chefday Delivers Fresh Ingredients for Gourmet Meals in Brooklyn

By , 23 April, 2013, 2 Comments

Chefday, a new food/tech start-up based in Brooklyn, wants to give you all the tools to create recipes designed by the best chefs of NYC–in the comfort of your own home. This 360 service delivers fresh, organic ingredients straight to your door, along with a recipe and a link to a short video tutorial. And they are not messing around. You not only get beautiful proteins and pre-washed fruits and veggies, but every last herb and spice (even salt, pepper and oil) meticulously measured and packed in a pretty brown bag.
Iron Chefs and Michelin Star chefs design the recipes you’ll find at chefday.com and you don’t have to make any weekly or monthly commitments. Just take a look at videos online, pick one at your leisure and sign up. You can watch the video before you buy in case you’re feeling gun shy and each recipe tells you exactly what you’ll get in the bag. Ingredients can be delivered for two, four, six or eight people and most recipes run approximately $15 a head.
So not only do you get to cook a gourmet meal without the hassle of shopping–but for every recipe basket purchased, Chefday donates a full meal to a family in need through the Food Bank For NYC. Convenience and helping others–what more could a home chef want?

I am impressed with your writing relationship and skills. http://acheterviagra-sansordonnance.com I want to say we soon threw away the huge terms that were there around that had often expired.

Summer Bod Alert: New Private Pilates Studio in Boerum Hill

By , 5 April, 2013, 1 Comment

Though groundhogs are currently being prosecuted for fraud, spring AND summer are coming up fast. Which means arms, legs and midriffs will be painfully exposed on the streets of Brooklyn, beaches of the Hamptons and water holes of Woodstock. So whats a flabby city dweller to do? According to Christine Randazzo: Pilates. Sure, BoCoCa has a plethora of Pilates facilities, but Christine’s new studio is more private and personal than many of the outlets around town.
Strength Pilates NYC is located at 586 Pacific St, Unit GB, near Flatbush, and offers “personalized Pilates privates” in which you will not only learn how to do Pilates, but more importantly, how to perform with the correct technique. Christine believes that using the correct form will allow for quicker results and help avoid injury. Each session lasts 55 minutes and is “personalized” to meet specific needs and goals. Also being offered are mat classes and pre/post natal sessions.
Interested in checking it out? Mention BoCoCaland and you’ll get a special discount of only $150 for an intro package of three sessions (usually $199). You can call 516-639-8116 or email staff@strengthpilatesnyc.com for more info.

Music Together: For Big Kids

By , 6 September, 2012, No Comment

In 2010, Naomi, of Naomi’s Music Together at 117 Remsen St., started offering a family music class in the evenings. Called Pajama Class, it starts at 6:30pm and allows parents who work to get some funky time with their kids. Now she’s come up with a new innovation which we think is kind of genius. Most music classes (not including instruments) are aimed at kids under 5. This Big Kids Class is for children 5,6 and 7 years old, blending the elements of Music Together with new activities, skills and challenges which are developmentally appropriate for this age group.

Big Kids classes lay the foundation for Basic Music Literacy, complementing music instruction in school or instrument lessons, and leading to a lifetime of joyful music-making. The curriculum includes solfège, solos and ensembles, folk dances, harmony singing, vocal development, and drumming. In a safe, fun environment, your child can experiment with new activities like conducting and improvisation, story songs, and game songs.
Parent attendance is welcome but not required. Each family receives a Big Kids songbook, CD, solfège cards, and HomePlay activities, so that the entire family can continue the fun and learning at home and parents can stay connected with what the child is learning in class.

A free demo class will be held next Monday, 10 Sept, from 4pm to 5pm. Feel free to stop in and check it out.

New Kidville Opening in Carroll Gardens

By , 5 June, 2012, No Comment

Funny, for such a child-centric neighborhood, Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens doesn’t have one of those giant spaces for preschool/play/classes/birthday parties like the ones in Brooklyn Heights and Park Slope. So you’re probably psyched that a new Kidville is opening at 380 Court St., near Carroll St., in September–though registration for classes is going on now.
Classes include the usual suspects: art, sports, music & dance and a pre-school alternative if you’ve been dumped on by all the schools in the hood. There’s also a playspace you can sign up for if you need somewhere to hang come colder weather, as well as tons of birthday packages–all of which run 90 minutes and include customizable themes (like superheroes and a dance party). Plus, a retail store is on the premises in case you want to browse while you’re waiting (you know how I feel about shopping).
Register for any class and you automatically receive a free silver membership for the family. And as a special introductory offer, if you register now, you’ll also get $50 toward any class and an upgrade to a gold membership. Welcome Kidville, we’ve been waiting for you.
