I was recently introduced to northern style pho in San Francisco - http://feistyfoodie.com/2009/12/11/turtle-tower/ - Googling has told me this is also called "Hanoi style" ? Anyone have any leads or suggestions where to find this in NYC? I'm totally lost after Googling for a while. Thanks!
(Hoping Tam speaks up...)
I tried to Google this but everything just made me more miserable.
I bought a fresh, un-brined turkey today from Trader Joe's. (They were next to the brined turkeys, so it's safe to assume it's NOT brined, right?) It says kosher but everything I read online says kosher turkeys are ALREADY BRINED.
In addition to that, did I buy my turkey too early? I don't have time to buy one closer to the day and I don't want a frozen one (and don't have room to freeze the turkey I just bought). It says "SELL BY NOV 30" on it so popping it in my fridge should be ok- RIGHT???
Also, how early is too early to start brining? I was going to brine it Weds-night-ish but now people are telling me bc I bought my bird so early, I should brine it earlier to "preserve" it...
Slightly strange question, but I'm hoping my fellow food obsessed will know what I'm talking about...
I recall watching a movie (comedy, maybe from the mid to late 80s?) where there's a scene, the protagonist is a classic buffoon. Goes to a party where there is a tin of super expensive caviar and for some reason, decides to add a tin of baked beans on top of it, much to the absolute horror of the host...
(I could be wrong: this could be from a tv show, and it could be ketchup on foie gras or pate, but the more I think about it, the more certain I am that it was baked beans on caviar, because there was a horror-related-to-cost issue...)
So my question is: does anyone remember this movie? What it's called, who's in it? Thanks :)
Hiya, I'm going to be in the SF/SJ/Napa area (I'm going to be around all three, to be honest) next week and am looking for casual places to eat. (French Laundry is out, and Chez Panisse is booked.) I'm willing to drive up to an hour, hour and a half, to get good food, but my travel companion may not, haha. Local, un-trendy, un-hip, is more what I'm aiming for... price doesn't matter so much as quality of food, no restrictions on cuisine except "tastes good". Thanks!!!
Or anyone know of any websites that would ship to NYC? Thanks!!! I've just read a lovely description of it, and despite not being much of a sweets person, I am dying to get my hands on some...
Reading this and someone's comment about "Please don't bring peanut products on airplanes, I don't want to go into anaphylactic shock" reminded me. I was at a baseball game and someone sitting to my right kept glancing warily at someone sitting to my left, who was shelling and eating peanuts in the manner common at baseball stadiums (cracking them, dropping the shells haphazardly on the ground, eating nut, repeat). Finally the person on the left said "Is there something wrong?" and the person on the right said, "I am deathly allergic to peanuts and am trying to make sure no peanut shell gets near me."
The person on the left just looked at the person on the right, turned slightly away, but continued to eat his peanuts in the same manner.
I'm a pretty big baseball fan, but I don't know that I'd risk my life to go to a game if I had a severe peanut allergy. I certainly wouldn't go around demanding everyone near me not eat peanuts, it's impossible to control that...
