ART
SCOPE
Art Fair
Spring '14
NYC

Of all of the art fairs passing through New York City this Spring, SCOPE was one of the most enjoyable for their variety of fresh, never-seen-before art. The exhibition felt youthful compared with all of the very serious art being presented in New York City this Spring season.

SCOPE was held for its second year at NYC's historic old post office building, Moynihan Station (8th Ave. at 33rd St.), and returned with 68 international galleries under one roof. Much of the success of this show must go to new exhibitors’ relations director, Katelijne de Backer, formerly of The Armory Show.

Below we exhibit some highlights of SCOPE/Spring 2014.

FOOD
Fabulous Microwave 
Sweet Potatoes

We have all learned how healthy sweet potatoes are for us, but sweet potato french fries or baked sweet potato loaded with butter does not sound all that healthy!

Here we present a simple solution that tastes FABULOUS!

Ingredients:
- One sweet potato for each guest, washed and dried off.
- Store-bought or fresh carrot juice.
- Salt & Pepper to taste.

Directions:
- Note: Prepare each sweet potato separately - one at a time then mix them all together at the end.
- Make a shallow slice down the side (longways) of the sweet potato to let out steam.
- Wrap the potato in a paper towel and place in the center of your microwave.
- Cook on high for 5 minutes.
- After the first 5 min. open microwave, turn potato over and cook an additional 5 minutes on the other side.
- Remove from Microwave (it will be hot).
{PUT NEXT POTATO IN THE MICROWAVE}
- After a minute cut open the potato - if too hot to handle, wait another minute.
- Scoop out the meat of the potato into a mixing bowl.
- Add a splash of carrot juice (2 tsp) 
- Add two grinds of sea salt & two grinds of black pepper.
- Mix well with a fork until mashed and well combined.
- Move to the serving dish.
{WHEN 2ND POTATO IS DONE]
- Repeat the process until you have one potato for each diner.
