Welcome to samarskaya.com, a gateway and accumulation of various projects and initiatives that I have been involved with. Am based in Brooklyn, NY where it is Generally, input exceeds output, but the latest updates on are First Date () and out beyond this site Qatar says Gulf Arab bloc needs reform to give it teeth ().
By popular appeal, I am working on recreating in real, physical, edible space a concept dinner that’s existed mostly as a one-liner for the past year and a half. That dinner is FIRST DATE.
Because, what’s a first date if not a chance to truly, scrupulously assess the person you’re sitting across from? And, isn’t the better opportunity to do that a situation where neither of you is exactly sure how to act, where the protocol hasn’t been laid out as a passive groove? With that in mind, comes a dinner inspired by all of the delicious platters I’ve been presented and confounded by. The udon noodle that wraps itself entirely throughout the oversized bowl and never stops. The whole crab goading me with it’s shell and flashbacks of eighties movies with it flying across the room. The four-tier sandwiches that are at least twice as big as my mouth. The unwieldy lettuce leafs that landed from the likes of James and the Giant Peach. All absolutely delicious, and all an adventure in eating.
Planned as an intimate dinner for twelve. Scheduled for early February 2012.
