TOUCH ME. TASTE ME. A New Dining Experience.

Once upon a fare a handsome chef sat beside a damsel in hunger distress. To the server this chef asks, “Can we get an orange? And a knife? Honey? And basil? And mint? And creamy olive — ok, we’ll take care of that.” And the server paused and returned dutifully. And so began the brand new, spontaneously produced dinners: “Touch Me. Taste Me.” Are you hungry? Does your sensuality find itself awakened? Us too… Stay tuned because we’re coming to wake you up!

ATOD Magazine partners with the incredibly talented Chef Andres Dangond.

Eat Street on the Coking Channel! ATOD’s very own Dawn Garcia is the Food Personality on Season 3 of the Food Network’s Cooking Channel show, Eat Street. The episode features Chef Andrew Gruel of SlapFish:

“In Los Angeles, Eat St slaps on the breaks for scrumptious sea food at Slap Fish such as their super fresh Lobster Grinder Roll and a decadent Crab & Brie Grilled Cheese sandwich. Then we’re Moroccan ‘n’ rollin’ over to New York City to the Comme Ci Comme Ca truck who are serving up Moroccan gourmet food like their lovely Lemon Chicken Cous Cous. Next it’s taco time in Atlanta as we pull up at Tex’s Tacos for some marvellous Mexicana meals like a super fresh Chicken Fresca and a perfect Pastor de Puerco. Final stop is at The Food Farm in San Diego for some healthy classics such as their Grass Fed Sliders, Avacodo Melt Sandwich and a yummy Coconut Rice Desert.”
