Spontaneous Mug Up at Hobbit House Studio

2014 open studio mug up

Since I am going to be open anyway, and have eggs and coffee, and everyone knows that hobbits are spontaneous, fun loving creatures, I thought to myself, why not just open earlier and have a Mug Up.  I know it is last minute, but what the heck, spontaneous is fun.  Anyone who is out and about and wants to come over, I’ll be deviling some eggs and have jelly beans, cookies, cupcakes, crackers and cheese (all bought today Joey!), so come by and save me from eating them.   Will be great to see whoever can make it.

When:  9:30AM, Sunday 4/6

Where: Hobbit House Studio (aka Khan Studio), up the stairs at 1 Wonson Street (behind Sailor Stan’s Restaurant – which by the way is opening on Saturday, 4/12 weekends)

Why: Because it’s spring dagnabbit and time to come over to Rocky Neck.

World Famous Deviled Egg Competition this Sunday at Mug Up

deviled egg competition

This is not to be missed.  If you haven’t experienced a GMG Mug Up Food Competition at Khan Studio and the Good Morning Gloucester Gallery, you have been missing something big. 

It is time for the World Famous GMG Biennial Deviled Egg Competition.  Those who would like to have their special deviled eggs included in the competition, be featured on the blog, and go down in deviled egg history,  just bring ‘em on Sunday, June 9th at 9:15 am at Khan Studio and the Good Morning Gloucester Gallery, 77 Rocky Neck Ave., Gallery 3.  All those masterful in the art of deviled egg making are welcome.  Beware, I did not enter my world famous deviled eggs in the last competition to give people a fair chance.  Not so this year - I’ll be there with my eggs and will show no mercy.  Gigi Mederos has already started posturing, as she wants to go home with the ribbon again this year.  We’ll just see about that Ms. Gigi.  Haven’t heard a word from Kathy Chapman yet, but she is a strong contender who has a couple of GMG food competition ribbons under her belt.

We’ve assembled a distinguished panel of experienced deviled egg competition judges, including: Joey C., Ed Collard, Paul Morrison, Adam Bolonsky and newcomer, Richard Rosenfeld.  If you missed our first GMG Deviled Egg Competition in 2011, or are not sure how the judging works, you can see the distinquished panel at work here http://goodmorninggloucester.wordpress.com/2011/08/22/2011-good-morning-gloucester-deviled-egg-competition/

People who don’t like deviled eggs or are not entering into the competition, feel free to bring along something non-egg related to share for Mug Up.  Mug Up is alot of fun and everyone is invited and welcome.  Come meet GMG peeps and make some new friends.

This is a Call Out to all Masters in the Craft of Deviled Egg Making

deviled egg competition

It is time for the World Renowned GMG Biennial Deviled Egg Competition.  Those who would like to have their special deviled eggs included in the competition, be featured on the blog, and go down in deviled egg history,  just bring ‘em on Sunday, June 9th at 9:30am at Khan Studio and the Good Morning Gloucester Gallery, 77 Rocky Neck Ave., Gallery 3.  This is way bigger than Topsfield Fair competition and doesn’t cost anything to enter.  I’m specifically calling out Kathy Chapman, Gigi Mederos/Stevie Black, Paul Frontiero, Sue Lovett and Joanne Souza – competitors in the last Deviled Egg Competition; but all those deft in the art of deviled egg making are welcome.  Beware, I did not enter my world famous deviled eggs in the last competition to give people a fair chance.  Not so this year - I’ll be there with my eggs and will show no mercy.

Mug Up – Let’s Do It Again!

grand opening mugup 2013_EJ and Charlie photos

These are some photos from last Sunday’s Grand Opening Mug Up at Khan Studio and the Good Morning Gloucester Gallery – some great ones by Charlie Carroll and some by me.  The Grand Opening Mug Up was an amazing event, made even better by the fact that Joey was able to come and stay most of the morning.  Kudos, shout outs and thanks for Ann McKay for her delicious cheesecake with strawberries, Deb Schradieck for her awesome peanut butter and jelly muffins and egg and sausage casserole; Ann & Bob Kennedy for the infamous carmelized bacon and chocolate dipping sauce; Donna Ardizzoni for being the health conscious one to bring a bowl of fresh fruit salad (with whipped cream on the side); Greg Bover brought one of his famous GMG logo cakes (chocolate this time); Sister Felicia’s scicilian pizza and baba rum cakes made with Ryan & Woods Folly Cove Rum were a big hit; Pat Ciaramitaro came bearing coconut madelines and candy; James & Anna Eves brought pastries from Cafe Cecelia’s; Kim Smith adorned the place with fresh picked flowers from her garden; Alicia Cox sent over a batch of Maime’s Kitchens famous muffins and sweet rolls.  There were many other contributions to an amazing Mug Up, but as always, I lost track in the confusion.  We had a nice toast of champagne and pomegranate juice for Evelyn, and a good time was had by all.

Don’t miss the ongoing tradition when Mug Up happens again this Sunday, June 2 at 9:15am.  Khan Studio and the Good Morning Gloucester Gallery, 77 Rocky Neck Ave., Gallery 3.

Cinco de Mayo Mug Up – Sunday 9:00 am – Everyone Welcome

cinco de mayo

On Sunday, May 5th at 9:00am there will be a pre-season Cindo de Mayo New Digs Blessing Mug Up at my new Rocky Neck digs overlooking Smiths Cove, up the stairs at 1 Wonson Street (behind Sailor Stan’s – the peach house across from Side Street Gallery and sculpture garden).  There will be coffee, tea and huevos rellenos (if I don’t mess them up) and whatever anyone cares to bring along to share (a batch of margaritas would be ok).  Come by and bless my new place with your presence and energy.

Also, from 7:30-12:00 that morning, Sailor Stan’s will be offering muchos especiales for Cinco de Mayo including: Shrimp Vera Cruz Omelette, Mexican Omelette (with Chorizo cheese and chilis), Chili Cheese Omelette, Breakfast Burrito (scrambled, diced ham and salsa), Huevos Rancheros, Gold Rush (spicy Benedict on cornbread), and Avocado Bacon Omelette (plus their full Breakfast Menu).  So if you like, come early and hungry, have breakfast at Sailor Stan’s and then come round back for Mug Up, or vice versa. 

Let’s get spicy and kick off the season, and fill up my new place with the great energy of Rocky Neck and GMG.

Mark Ring’s Deviled Eggs

Tradition.

The Captain Joe and Sons Christmas Party and Mark Ring’s Deviled Eggs.

In theory deviled eggs don’t sound all that appetizing to me.  Anyone else’s deviled eggs, I’m not going to cross the street to eat and probably if they are sitting on a platter at someone’s house I’d most likely pass them by. 

But not Mark Ring’s deviled eggs.  Heaven on earth.
