Well the Christmas Gift catalogues are hitting my mailbox daily, and I keep getting the expensive meat ones - you know where your order of 6 strip steaks comes to something more than three figures and that does not include shipping-handling. Has anyone ever received or tried these items which just seem so ridiculously overpriced to me?
Friends of mine are going to be in Berlin for two weeks in January. She is doing a museum thing as part of her masters course at Johns Hopkins. Any recommendations for Berlin specialities and restaurants and streetfood would be welcome and will be forwarded on to her.
Today's mail contained a large white envelope from Adriana's Caravan a wonderful spice and condiments mail order store in Brooklyn. Sadly along with the catalogue it contained a letter stating that Adriana's Caravan is folding up its tent and everything must go. How sad! I loved the store. I never ordered all that much, but for the past two years I have managed to put together with their help a nice Christmas care package for a friend in Michigan. Unpacking my mail order delivery from them was a little adventure! So so sad.
Ciao arriverderci Adriana - you were a good source.
Is there a good place to get pho in Princeton, NJ?
I volunteered to make stir-fried broccoli as a covered dish as part of a dinner at church. They are figuring on about 50 people but as there will be all kinds of other dishes (trust me I checked that sign-up sheet) I should figure on 10.
I plan on using broccoli crowns - two pounds or four pounds?
My nephew is going to be in Vienna for two months this summer. He is a vegetarian - not a vegan - he eats yoghurt, cheese and eggs and probably butter if he gets the chance.
Are there any vegetarian restaurants in the home of the Wiener Schnitzel and are they any good at all? Any dishes to recommend? Thank you in advance.
A couple of nights ago I was watching a rerun of Top Chef Masters (from Season 1) and heard this word that sounded like "weegan" . It took me a while before I realized that they were talking about or considered themselves "vegans" a word I have always pronounced "vaygens" sort of from "vegetables", I don't understand why the long "e" - could somebody please enlighten me?
I have just received my set of seven dog biscuit cutters and the three recipes that came with them. I know I could go on-line and find thousands but I trust you fellow foodies to come up with some that you have actually tried and tested.
I don't trust myself as a baker so please, please keep them very simple - sort of for small challenged children!
I shall be in town Friday night with a friend, and we are going to be around the East 54th/57th area and may need somewhere to eat at about 8:00p.m.
Looking for somewhere that won't break the bank and where two women of "a certain age" may be seated and treated with respect . Cannot make reservations as I don't know for sure what plans are, but, would like to be prepared as the Boy Scouts say. Thank you all very much.
Thinly sliced cucumber and fresh mint make a refreshing summer salad—delicious on its own as a light bite, or as a side at your next picnic or barbecue.
