Di Modolo and Modolo are Next in Fine Jewelry

27 Nov


Di Modolo and its brother brand, Modolo for Men, have established themselves as the prestige in their ingenious use of well-bred and exquisite 18k gold jewelry and dignified chic diamonds. Founded in 2001 by Benny Shabtai, the owner resurrected a new found format in featuring sophisticated pieces that not only have a design to match the quality of the material, but longevity to hold its weight in the vast world of vintage accessories, with more to come. As recent as 2010, the company has leaned full throttle into the sterling silver side of jewelry making and have done a successful job at that, featuring an array of articles for men and women crafted uniquely for each individual.



The Linked by Love collection is one of the newest add-ons to the Di Modolo family, which features linked cuffs, always a great gift for mother or daughter and matching earrings and necklaces with mix and match pendants. The Ricamo and Diamante have been brand new focuses this season, made from pure 18k gold and sterling silver, in a combination of strand bracelets, dangle earrings, and silver-plated necklaces. The most awesome twist to many of these pieces is the gold accents added onto many of the standard issued jewelry pieces; this adds a distinguished look to the focal points on your person, however you decide to accessorize. Diamond watches, part of the Tempia collection, issue a metallic band in the material of your choice with a diamond encrusted face and Roman numerals that can easily make for the completion of any delicate wrist.


Modolo for Mennot being left out of the picture, has revamped in handsome pieces of jewelry with black diamonds, cognac diamonds, and diamond diamonds for reassurance in the overly testosteroned male. Beads and double leather wrist bracelets with generous weight have been the name of the game for some of the more casual articles, but dog tags, chains and diamond watches also make an appearance in this collection. The chains hold a length up to 24in. but you can also add on even more links to make your chain longer. Rosary beads have also been a best seller, made by the finest in black lava beads, and not shy to support all cultures, as a Star of David necklace has also become available. Many of the jewelry pieces are unisex so men and women can share and change pieces accordingly, along with comfort. These pieces safely assure a nice, clean look that still carries what you find self assuring in the jewelry you hold closest. Di Modolo and Modolo is an Italian based goods and manufactured with craftsmanship by some of the best in its native region.

Pumpkin Does The Skin Good

26 Nov


Pumpkin is the fruit of the season and while some may think that its health benefits only extend to those who consume it, others know that it has more uses than as a food. Pumpkins are loaded with vitamins, including vitamins A, C, and E, as well as magnesium, copper, potassium and zinc. Pumpkins are not only anti-inflammatory, but also help with healing, purifying and anti-aging. Kim Schanzer, co-founder of Pulse Laser & Skincare Center in New York City, says, “Pumpkin renews and hydrates the skin. In addition, the natural enzymes in pumpkin remove the outer layer of dead skin, exposing fresh, new skin.” The skincare center offers clients pumpkin treatments exclusively using Rhonda Allison products, which combine the natural benefits of pumpkin along with scientific skincare. Additionally, the beta carotene found in pumpkins help to promote collagen and elastin production and also serves to sooth sensitive skin and reduce redness. All of these properties make for one hell of a skincare treatment! While some of you may already be on your way out the door to book a treatment at Pulse, others do not have the luxury to afford such treatment. Luckily, Ms. Schanzer offers us some high quality homeopathic pumpkin skin treatments to try at home.

For the following recipes, the pulp can be used fresh, or cooked and pureed. Although some of the enzymes will be lost during the heating process, the pumpkin’s benefits will still be effective.

pumpkin mask

4 tablespoons of peeled pumpkin
4 teaspoons of corn flour
2 teaspoons of aloe vera gel
2 teaspoons of mashed pineapple
1 teaspoon of green tea or ground sage
½ teaspoon of sunflower oil.

Prepare green tea and let it rest a bit. While that is cooling down, combine pineapple, honey, pumpkin, and aloe gel. Add to that sunflower oil and then green tea. Mix well. Apply the mix on the face and neck and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry. This amount is enough for 4 applications, one application twice a week. Keep it in a glass jar, tightly closed and refrigerated. It is not to be used after 2 weeks. Note: Honey has humectant (draws moisture to the skin) and anti-fungal properties. Pumpkin’s natural enzymes gently exfoliate (digest and remove the dead proteins from the surface of skin).  Pineapple, as well, has natural enzymes that exfoliate.

For the body, mix some pumpkin puree with a bit of Epsom salt or brown sugar. Make sure the mixture is not too liquid and that you can feel the coarseness of the salt/sugar. For the face, use baking soda in place of the Epsom salt/brown sugar, and some honey for an added humectant effect. Take a shower, make sure your skin is moist. Apply the scrub in circular motion. Rinse off when done and for best results, apply some hydrating lotion after the treatment. 

Mix pumpkin and petroleum jelly in equal quantity and massage on your clean washed heels regularly. Cover with a pair of socks to keep the mixture in place and allow the mixture to absorb into the skin. Leave on overnight. Use several times a week for maximum results.

*2 cups apple cider
*2 sticks cinnamon
*1 cup brown sugar

Combine the rum, apple cider syrup, lime juice, bitters and 1 star anise in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Strain the liquid into a cocktail glass. Garnish with star anise. *to make apple cider syrup: In a small sauce pot over medium-high heat, cook the apple cider and cinnamon sticks until the cider is reduced to one cup, about 10 to 15 minutes. Add the brown sugar and remove the pot from heat. Stir the mixture until the sugar is dissolved. Allow the syrup to cool before use.

pork tenderloin

Roasted Pork Tenderloin & Vegetables
1/4 cup Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 cup apple cider
1 lb. pork tenderloins, brined at least 12 hours (see below)
1 tbsp. peanut oil
3/4 lb. brussels sprouts, picked, cored and leaved
1 sweet potato, peeled and diced
2 apples, peeled and diced
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. sea salt
1 sprig rosemary
1 tbsp. Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum apple butter, per serving (see below)
1 tbsp. unsalted butter

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Combine the rum, lemon juice and apple cider and reduce to 3/4 its original volume. Set aside. Heat a cast iron pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsps of peanut oil when the pan is hot. Once the oil is hot, remove the pork from the brine, pat dry and add to the pan for a total of 3 minutes, rolling the pork to sear all sides every minute or so. Place the pan in the hot oven to cook for 4 minutes, or for an internal temperature of 140 degrees. Let the pork rest while the vegetables cook.

Once the pork hits the oven, toss the sweet potato, apple and brussels in individual bowls, dressing evenly with olive oil and salt. Place the sweet potatoes on a sheet pan and roast in the preheated oven for ten minutes and then add the sweet potatoes and apples on top of the sweet potatoes. Roast for five more minutes. When they are done, remove them from the oven and set aside.

When the pork tenderloin is done, remove from pan and rest for 5 minutes on a cutting board. Present by spooning the apple butter on the bottom of a platter and placing the vegetables over the butter, and then slicing the pork and darling it over the vegetables. Warm the glaze base and whisk in the butter to finish. Pour the prepared glaze over the pork tenderloin.

Pork Brine
1 cup apple cider
1 tsp. peppercorns
1 clove garlic
2 tbsp. salt
1 tsp. coriander seed
1/2 tsp. chili flake
1 stick cinnamon
1 cup ice

Combine all ingredients except the ice in a pot and heat over high heat. Once the liquid reaches a boil, remove from heat and add the ice to chill quickly. Once cold, pour the brine over the pork and place in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours and up to 48 hours.

Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum Apple Butter
9 lbs. local apples
1 tsp. ascorbic acid powder
2 1/2 cups organic granulated white sugar
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tbsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground allspice
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 cup apple cider
2 cup Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum

Peel and core the apples, cut into eighths. After coring and peeling, you will have about two-thirds of starting weight. Place apple pieces in a large bowl of cold water with the ascorbic acid. When the apples are all peeled, drain and discard the water and place apples in slow cooker. Combine apples with sugar and all other ingredients; toss well. Cook for one hour on high. Turn on low and cook for 8 hours or until jammy in consistency. Stir frequently but carefully as jam will be hot. Transfer to sanitized jars. Fill to 1 inch from top and seal with lids and bands. Hot process until done.

toffee pudding

Toffee Pudding with Rum Maple Sauce
1/2 stick unsalted butter, room temperature, plus extra for greasing pan

1 1/2 cups dried figs, cut into small pieces
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum-Maple Sauce (see below)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and lightly flour a medium cast iron pan and set it aside. In a small sauce pot set over medium-high heat, combine the rum and dried figs and bring the liquid to a boil. Remove from heat, mix in the baking soda, and set the mixture aside to cool for later use. In a food processor, combine the flour, butter, baking powder, salt and sugar. Pulse the processor until all is incorporated. Place the flour mixture into a mixing bowl and add the eggs, vanilla and the reserved fig mixture. Combine all ingredients. This will be a fairly wet batter. Add the batter to the cast iron pan and bake for 35 minutes. While it’s cooking is a good time to make the sauce. Check the pudding with a cake tester to see that it comes out clean, and remove it from the oven. Flip the pudding in the cast iron pan and add 3/4 of the sauce and then bake for an additional 10 minutes. Let the pudding cool and absorb all of the sauce. Slice it into wedges and serve with the remaining sauce.

Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum-Maple Sauce
1 cup maple syrup
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3 bay leaves
1/2 tsp. sea salt

Unprecedented Austrian Cuisine at Wallsé

25 Nov


Nothing beats the feeling of stumbling into a warm and inviting restaurant off of the blustery winter streets of Manhattan. As a food lover and writer in New York City I have been dying to try Wallsé, the flagship restaurant of famed Austrian chef Kurt Gutenbrunner, also known for his restaurants Blaue Gans, Cafe Sabarsky and The Upholstery Store. After all the hype I’d heard about the food I must say that I was hesitant to really get excited to dine there. Warming up in this sophisticated restaurant was a pleasure. Chef Gutenbrunner is truly an artist in the kitchen and it shows in even the smallest details in each of his dishes. The restaurant changes its menu seasonally and Manhattan with a Twist was delighted to try out their six course winter tasting menu.


During the evening, we also previewed Wallsé’s new wine menu, which features vintages exclusive to the restaurant and unavailable anywhere else in New York. All in all, the wines and the fine cuisine made for an epic evening. Their six course tasting menu is available for $85 and features some outstanding dishes and the wine pairings were unparalleled to any other I’ve experienced. The wines were so in sync with the dishes it was heavenly. Favorite dishes included the Weiner Schnitzel with Potato-Cucumber Salad and Lingonberries and the Venison with Red Cabbage and Brioche Dumpling. The former was paired with Grüner Veltliner Vinotheksfüllung – Nikolaihof 1993 and the latter with Blaufränkisch Mariental – Ernst Triebaumer 2002. The quality of the ingredients used and final dishes were amazing, with flavors just bursting off the plate. The venison tasted more like a filet mignon than gamey, which is quite a feat.

The tasting menu also consisted of Beet Terrine with Horseradish Mousse, Snail Ravioli with Butternut Squash, Canadian Halibut with Cucumbers, Dill and Chanterelle Mushrooms, and finally Topfen Knödel with Poached Plums. Each dish was a delight in itself and paired with fabulous and exclusive Austrian wines made it that much better. After dining here, I have to say that all the hype didn’t even live up to the actual restaurant. If you haven’t been yet, put it at the top of your list and if you have been already, make sure to check out their seasonal tasting menus and amazing new wines.

Wallsé is located at 344 W. 11th Street.

Have a Boozy Thanksgiving

21 Nov

No one likes to partake in stuffing their gut with all the Thanksgiving classics without imbibing as well. This year, switch out your typical wines for something with a little more holiday spirit (get it?)! Pair a cocktail with each of your favorite Thanksgiving foods and you’ll be one happy American.

brussel sprouts

Brussel sprouts tend to be a Thanksgiving staple, and let’s face it, you need at least one green dish on your table. Pair yours with this Applewood Smoked Bacon Martini, courtesy of Jefferson’s Restaurant and Bar. It will taste great, especially if your brussel sprouts have bacon bits in them!
