WHAT IS TGB?
Where foodies find quick and easy date night recipes by Chad Carns (The Gourmet Bachelor author), basic cooking tips, artisan beer, wine, whiskey, fine spirit and essential tasting guide, latest NYC hot spot or local neighborhood joint, new music, uncommon travel destination, must-have speciality product all artfully selected by a short list of talented industry insiders—and a way to save “Your Picks” with just one click.
Date Night Recipes for two
Digital creative director by day, home cook by night, Chad Carns put his day job on hold to follow his passion for food, wine and culture downtown to Greenwich Village (New York) where he studied global cooking and wine at top NYC institutions and later wrote, designed and independently published The Gourmet Bachelor Cookbook, a trendy cookbook featuring quick & easy date night recipes for two.
TGB Cookbook sold out—but instead of writing another book, Carns put his digital design hat back on to share his recipes in whole new way.
EAT: NEW YORK +
We will feature some of our favorite hot new restaurants but other food blogs do a great with that. Our focus will be on under-the-radar finds, local neighborhood joints, late night eats and that place across the street from the most trendy restaurant. The vibe is friendly and unpretentious. The food and drinks are delicious and if the dinner costs more than a car payment, you know why.
DRINK:NEW YORK +
So you like to drink
We will feature our favorite new trendy bars but other food blogs do a great job with that. Our focus will be on under-the-radar bars, local neighborhood joints, undiscovered finds and the place where local celebrities go not to be seen. The vibe is friendly and unpretentious. The food and drinks are delicious and if you pay $20 for a cocktail, you know why.
WINE, BEER & SPIRITS +
What is tannin? How hoppy do you want it?
What makes a bourbon a bourbon
Our flavor profile charts will make tasting wine, craft beer and whiskey easy. Do you love hops but hate tannins? See at a glance which craft beers have tons of hops. Like your whisky Peaty? Try Compass Box’s Peat Monster Blended Scotch Whisky. It’s a “10” on the Peat Scale.
