Cold Buster Remedy
We’re really into Feel Food, a new vegan, organic café in the West Village. Latin American chef Fernando Aciar makes crazy delicious things out of superfoods—think sprouted lentil and brown rice wraps, bee pollen water, raw pistachio biscotti, and more. Fernando and his co-owner Gaeleen lend us their cold buster recipe, which is perfect for the season—it’s all natural and makes you literally sweat the cold out.
Mix: Juice of half a lemon, 1 teaspoon bee pollen, 1 heaping tablespoon of honey, 1 teaspoon pressed ginger, small pinch cayenne powder, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon powder into 8 ounces of hot water. Drink.
No feast would be complete without cheese, which we’d take over a piece of cake pretty much any day. An ideal post-meal cheese plate contrasts flavor and texture, and leans towards your tastes (the stronger the better for us).
