Anyone know where to find cocoa nibs for a decent price? Preferably in Manhattan. Thanks!
anyone know where to find this seasonal delicacy? there was some at the market but i'd much rather put something like this in knowledgeable hands.
I haven't seen them in a few weeks. It may just be that the season's over, but I'm wondering if anyone's come across them recently. Thanks!
Perhaps imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery, but I was surprised to see that the Washington Post just started a "Bottom Shelf" column:
Somehow I found myself on the Wikipedia page for the Isle of Man, a small island in the Irish Sea that seems like just about the most awesome non-tropical place on the planet. There are maybe 80,000 inhabitants, and there's also a breed of indigenous lamb called Manx Loaghtan that usually have either 4 or 6 horns, the meat is supposedly leaner than Australian and American lamb and frankly, I've never heard of it so my curiosity is piqued.
I contacted a company that sells different cuts, but shipping will be about $150, and so far the dude has only quoted me for the filet which is $60/lb - aka too rich for my blood. Not sure how this would even work, but is anyone interested in trying some? I'm in NYC.

I know that we Serious Eaters keep things pretty classy 'round these parts, but is there anything you crave (besides a nap) after making sex? For me, nothing beats a refreshing bowl of gazpacho to energize me for round two. Maybe it's the vegetables, fortifying me with their nutrients and sexy PETA-approved vitamins. Or maybe it's just the spice, which permeates my psyche and gets me in a fiery mindset. For whatever reason, in the winter I lean towards bison chili.
Looking for a local replacement for Benton's, which to me has the richest hickory flavor of any bacon I've come across. What's the smokiest bacon you've tried from within a reasonable distance? Let's say, within the East Coast north of...Virginia?
