Draymond Green feasted at Mister Jiu’s
The Warriors are headed to China for a pair of preseason games, and to prepare for his visit Draymond Green took a trip to Chinatown. The NBA All-Star dined at Mister Jiu’s, chef Brandon Jew’s modern Chinese restaurant on Waverly Place last night, with ESPN in tow. The network was filming the basketball star as he ate salt-baked whole trout, fried rice, roast duck, and off-menu oxtail soup as part of its pre-game promotions. The team will play the Minnesota Timberwolves in Shanghai and Shenzhen, China on October 4 and 8; for those interested in watching a basketball game at 3:30 a.m., tune in!
Don’t mess with D-Patt’s eggs
The internet is, and has always been, a blessing and a curse. Currently, chef Daniel Patterson is on the cursed side, as he’s plagued by an 11-year-old NYTimes article on an unusual technique for cooking eggs. After recipe site Food52 posted a video of the chef’s technique, which involves boiling beaten eggs instead of scrambling them, British tabloid The Sun picked up on some commenters’ mistrust of the method, followed by an article from Bloomberg titled “You Are Making Scrambled Eggs All Wrong.” The method seems legit, but it still seems preferable to just go to one of Patterson’s restaurants for brunch instead.
