A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

Good Ones Trade 6Last week, entrepreneurs and business professionals met at Trade in the Financial District for an afternoon with the #Good Ones.

Good Ones TradeThe event had endless coffee and tea, tasty treats, homemade cookies, stonefire flatbreads, and wonderful coconut cake (center) with toasted almonds and passion fruit sauce. The event was a modern take on high tea – no raised pinky fingers here.

Good Ones Trade 2Tenzin Conechok Samdo, head bartender at Trade, AKA @bostonmixdrink, was mixing up specialty cocktails featuring Motto, a delicious sparkling matcha tea. Tenzin is known for his flavorful cocktails and his out of the box garnishes. Check out Tenzin’s Momo recipe (his best hangover remedy) on Jody’s husband’s (Ken Rivard) blog: The Garum Factory.
