Tuesdays with Fuchsia
Stinky Tofu Face
Stinky tofu? Yup, stinky tofu: blocks of tofu left to ferment in a liquid that Fuchsia politely described as "having gone off."
This is the face you make when you smell stinky tofu, as Ed and Erin are demonstrating here.
Happy Kenji Noodle
Sighted in Flushing's New World Mall. Um Kenji, are you running a noodle operation on the side?
V-Day Cereal Care Package
What did the care package contain? Some heart necklaces filled with chocolate cereal. You know us too well.
Quiet on Set
Robyn and Hambone
Robyn is in Hong Kong this week, but before she left she got to have some quality time with Hambone. Hambone seems less than pleased.
Dry Ice Time
Another ice cream delivery means more fun with dry ice.
You may remember Mr. Bear from last week. He's still hanging out in the office, working at Carey's desk while she's in Vietnam this week. Hey Mr. Bear! OK, apparently he's too busy working to pay attention to us.
How many eggs are in this thing?
AHT/photo editor Robyn was in Hong Kong this week for a press trip. One of her fave foods of the week: an egg sandwich from Hokkaido Dairy Farm Milk Restaurant.
Pudding 'n eggs
Robyn's last meal in Hong Kong: double boiled milk pudding and an egg sandwich from Yee Shun Milk Company (yeeeaaah, she really likes egg sandwiches).
Shilin Night Market
After leaving Hong Kong, Robyn went to Taipei to visit her dad for the weekend. First stop after the airport: Shilin Night Market, featuring a basement food court with a gajillion food stalls and the gajillion people who want to eat there on a Friday night.
Robyn's favorite bite from the market: a big ol' juicy slab of fried chicken from Hot-Star.
Pie-making superhero? Maybe.
Friend of Serious Eats Christopher Stephens organizes an annual fundraiser called Pies Against Cancer. Each year he bakes a bunch of pies in an effort to raise money for Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital, one of the nation's leading cancer hospitals. This year he raised over $1,500 at the event, and it's not too late to donate. He's a man who loves pie! And fighting cancer.
Some good-looking pies, right? You're looking at the line-up for Christopher's Pies Against Cancer fundraiser: Cranberry Orange Walnut, Razzle Dazzle (mixed berries), Pecan, Chocolate Silk, Treacle Tart, Buttermilk, Blueberry, Apple, Chocolate Chess, and Key Lime.
SE managing editor Carey is in Vietnam traveling around with SE writer Jamie Feldmar. They were invited into a private home for Tet, the Vietnamese new year; here's just some of where they ate.
Now they're in Halong Bay up to the northeast of Hanoi. Next stops: street food in Hanoi, then on to Hue and Hoi An!
Leandra and the pups
There comes a point in every work day when you just need some pup time.
