So I know I still want to post some pictures from the latest Cooking for Real taping, but I had to share this...
Foodies are great people! Just a week ago a show aired where I made my Interstate Chili. I based the recipe on all the great flavors from Texas and Detroit chili and talked about it's origins on the show. Well, if you didn't catch it I talked about a neighborhood spot that I frequented when I lived in Detroit and how great it was to get it sent in the mail when I moved to NYC. Well, it only took a few hours, but email started coming in to my website from Detroiters and others that have since moved from Detroit, but still enjoy the chili ... via National Coney Island's website! I am an idiot!!! For years I tried to figure out how to get this chili without having to find someone there to buy it, freeze it, then mail it. For some silly reason I never even thought to do an internet search.
So now, just a week after pining for chili on television, life imitates art and I got a Coney Kit care package from the great city of Detroit! Beneath the Detroit hat and cool National Coney Island hoodie, are hot dog buns, hot dogs, mustard, chopped onions and the reason for the seasoning ... CHILI! Thanks to everyone for the heads up, what a great community of foodies. And just in time for game day!!!
