I have ideas and then I do stuff with them.
I'm a fan of Red Medicine! I wish I could have made it for this. Everything is so bright!
@howlingwolf Carumba! How could I have forgotten M Noodle? Sesame pancake with roast pork is my go to! Though, since they've gotten a little more traffic they raised the price by a dollar :\
I.... - brain shuts down-
I was losing faith in Foursquare but this really turns it up to 11 ! Aggregation, oh my :)
@shoneyjoe You and me both.
San Francisco transplant Rosamunde on Bedford Ave. is open 'til 4am on weekends. I'm not sure where else you can get a duck sausage at that hour, hehehe.
I am weeping. 4 years of SxSw under my belt and I'm not going this year. (,◠⌢◠)/ Weeping!
Hooray! I live equidistant between the Clinton Hill and Bed-Stuy. I know where I'm going tomorrow.
Oh oh oh, my favorite thing is pickled cherries with rosemary and a cinnamon stick. I found that pickling fruits is much better served with sugary cider vinegar brine akin to that of beets vs. dill pickle brine.
@scalfin The circulatory system is pretty much kaput when you separate a part of the body from the power source, much like taking the batteries out of a toy. The surface area of uncooked meat becomes a mass of cells with semi-permeable membranes that can take on or let out liquid matter. Depending on the meat thickness as well as the marinade's acidity, temperature, salinity and time-- it will eventually want to find some matter of balance between the tissue and its environment. It only works so far because as Kenji said, the cells are compartmentalized.
I'm also just a fan of the visceral Game of Thrones style of eating meat off a large bone.
Sharing with all of my friends who are heading to Austin right now, I'm so jealous. Forget the panels, I'd just want to crawl around eating.
I really liked the tomato based market soup from Fish. It's a little spicy but really comforting.
Fish on Bleecker street always has 6 oysters + beer or wine for $8. But if you like fancy beer, Blind Tiger is across the street.
@hill3 Where did you end up going? Happy belated birthday!
Yes! Babycakes. They are also allergy friendly.
If you want to get into it, Amanda from Food52 had a piece about careers in food writing.
I'm a huge fan of @murrayscheese , @culturecheese ...'cause cheese. CHEESE!
And @aprilbloomfield & @themeathook ..'cause meat. I'm @jenndlv by the way.
@pavlov I'm dying, oh my god. Dying! Hahahah.
D'artagnan says duck fat is 20% lower in saturated fat than butter. I've been trying to find an article newer than 2011, but L.A. times says duck fat is between olive oil and butter in terms of healthful use. Even though it has less saturated fat, it is still a source of it. So moderation, my friends!
Not exactly sure why it's not a good "all-purpose" fat, perhaps it has to do with the low melting point of 14c (or 57ish F). I don't make nearly enough duck to warrant making confit, but I want to try some time.
@littauer That sounds like a dance you'd do AFTER all the rum drinking...
Scratch if I'm cooking for others, but if its just me, friends or family -- I'm just happy to use up everything in the fridge :)
This is on my kitchen docket.
If I already cut it open I use the tough avocado for salsa. It's harder to peel but after a day or two with acids of the tomato and lime, it's pretty tasty.
I tend to think a side-effect of this website is the notion of "I can do that." I rarely eat out anymore unless its something I absolutely don't know how to make (yet).
@rosewood You'd have a lot of luck with food outside of downtown Austin proper. I'm a huge fan of Alamo Draft House (where they hold a lot of SxSw film events) and the Highball next door, which is a bowling alley, restaurant and music venue.
