Celebrity Chef Ashbell McElveen Comes to Gossett’s Farmers Market

Chef Ashbell McElveen

Westchester foodies, farmers markets aficionados and Gossett’s Farmers Market weekend regulars can meet TV chef Ashbell McElveen and taste his new line of smoked meat and seafood products at Gossett’s Farmers Market in South Salem on Saturday, June 9.

Known to his fans as “Chef Ashbell,” TV viewers in the Greater New York area will remember the chef’s appearances on the current season of the Food Network’s “Beat Bobby Flay,” or as chef-presenter on NBC’s “Weekend Today” show. 

Taste Chef Ashbell’s new line of products, Ashbell’s Premium Meats and Seafood, and hear how Chef Ashbell combined his generations-old family method of southern-style curing and wood-smoking with his modern mixes of globally-sourced spices and natural flavorings. The result is a line of ready-to-serve meat and seafood that are as flavorful as they are healthy.

Walking and Talking

Walking is my favorite mode of transportation. It is also my preferred form of exercise, meditation, stress reduction and idea generation.

In middle school and high school, I walked and talked with my friends, Irene, Alexandra and Charles. We covered miles and miles around our neighborhood and beyond during those free-range chats. After school, we might walk to the park or to the small ...

What Kind of Sports Parent Are You?

Social media recently showered a lot of likes and love on a high school pitcher in Minnesota whose team was playing in a regional final that would send the winning team to the state championship game.

After the last batter of the game struck out, the pitcher did something unheard of. Rather than spontaneously join his teammates in an on-field celebration, as is customary, the pitcher ...

Putnam County highlights

Putnam County: ”Where the country begins” pretty much sums up my view every day as I traverse this beautiful area. At every turn there is a reservoir, farm, trail or the stunning vista of the Hudson Highlands. Less development and fewer traffic lights showcase nature’s bounty uniquely during each season and I never tire of taking it all in. I often stop and take pictures on my ...

Packing Heat

“Are you leaving me?” asked my husband one night as he surveyed the contents of my closet on our bed.

“What? No!” I said. “Why would you think that?”

“Every single article of clothing you own is laid out on our bed,” he replied. “So I have to assume you are either leaving me or you have joined the armed services and if that’s the ...

Hitting the road, Part II

Welcome back to our little trip across these great United States. We left off somewhere on Route 90, heading out of Cleveland.

So glad to have you following along, and frankly, if you’re following I’m just glad you’re not the cops. On the way to Chicago I found myself driving 70 miles an hour, which made the police quite angry, since the speed limit was 75. 

When ...
