I am oddly excited about the new food hall opening, in the old Plaza Hotel.
It instantly reminded me of La Grande Epicerie in le Bon Marche in Paris.

Culinary works of art and beautiful food packaging, I could spend hours just looking at everything. Perfect for a (fancy, special occasion) picnic in Central Park.

It's next to impossible to eat 100% organic, but I try to buy it as much
as possible. Unfortunately, I always forget which produce is more
important to buy organic. These two images from Martha Stewart Living
are great visual reminders. I always love good food styling, even more
so when it illustrates something informative. They could be printed out,
pocket-sized, and stored in your wallet. The two lists were compiled by
the Environmental Working Group.
