If Alex Guarnaschelli were cooking tonight, where would she buy the ingredients?
Dickson’s, which is the butcher shop at Chelsea Market. I’d get a cockerel, throw it in the oven on a bed of rosemary and potatoes. I don’t think you’ve ever had a chicken as good. I won’t lie to you.
My agenda would begin at Posman Books, it just opened at Chelsea Market. I would go in and browse around, maybe get inspired. Then to Dickson’s for the chicken. Then Manhattan Fruit, the produce store at the market and buy what, oranges or tangerines or clementines, they pretty much have them all the time. I’d throw them in with the chicken. Then some ice cream from L’Arte del Gelato — half dark chocolate, half pistachio.
