Alexander Smalls Plans a Food Hall for Harlem. But First, Dubai.

In October, an African food hall, Alkebulan, opened as part of Expo 2020 Dubai. It was created by Alexander Smalls, the Harlem chef, restaurateur and performer, with TGP International, a hospitality management company based in London. Originally the plan was to open Alkebulan first in Harlem but the pandemic interfered and then, as Mr. Smalls put it, “Dubai came calling.” With a name that was once that of the African continent and is said to mean “mother of mankind,” the hall has 11 stands created by Mr. Smalls and run by African chefs and restaurateurs, with West African street food, barbecue, dishes inspired by Zanzibar and East African seafood. The lineup includes Mr. Smalls’s own Shoebox Bakery, Chicken Coop and Sweet Ophelia’s, an Afro-Asian wok bar. The Harlem version is back on track to open next year, and then another Alkebulan is set for London. The partners are looking

eight Irresistible Do-it-yourself Cat Meals Recipes

Our probiotic Kefir Cream Frosting is the only frosting recipe you will ever want! We’re so used to super-sizing once we eat out that it is simple to carry that thoughts-set residence. To right-measurement your eating regimen, use a kitchen scale and measuring cups to measure your meals for every week or two. Use smaller plates and glasses to downsize your portions. Cut up restaurant servings in half – making two meals out of 1 large one. Portion out snack servings instead of consuming them directly from the container.

If any food plan does not test all of those packing containers, it will probably fizzle out, leaving you right again the place you began. Or you could achieve weight reduction at the expense of your physical or psychological health, which isn’t worth it, and isn’t sustainable,” she says.

Ribeye makes weeknight dinner feel like an old school steakhouse

I have always considered steak an outdoor food. Steak to me is something someone else throws on a grill, and you eat it once or twice in their yard and then you don’t think about it again for eleven months.

Lately, however, I have reconsidered my position. Maybe I need to look into my iron levels. All I know is that until recently I’d never cooked a steak in my life, and suddenly one day a slab of meat seemed like exactly the thing I wanted most in the world.
