Blogger Wins Brunch Big Time

You eat this every Sunday morning, right? Great Performances’ amazing 100-Mile Menu Brunch, as captured by Francesca Ferenczi for

Last week Edible Manhattan raffled off tickets for Great Performances New York Food & Wine Fest Sunday brunch–wanna win our next one? Sign up for our enewsletter right here–and our winner just happened to be Francesca “Frenchie” Ferenczi, the food blogger extraordinaire behind (Yes, she of course blogged about the brunch, including a photo of bacon-tastic eggs Bennie far too racy for these pages.) So we’d thought we’d share a little about Frenchie, who started TBD, which stands for both To Be Determined and The Best Dishes, while she was studying (read: eating and cooking) in Italy last year. A native Upper East Sider, she’s currently at University in Montreal–hence the To Be Determined side of things–and happily home for the brunchtastic weekend.

As for the other half of TBD–the food, we mean–“like the best things in life,” Frenchie says, they “happen by accident.” Wise words from a university student! Plus, she also said Edible Manhattan takes “the time to research and focus, that way I know that I am always getting the best information.” Word! Thusly, we have no doubts both sides of TBD will be just fine for Frenchie. Meanwhile, we love Manhattan and all, but thoughts of her chowing down on all that smoked meat, poutine and fine Canadian cheese do make us awfully jealous. Frenchie! Send us all a care package when you’re back at school, please!
