I'm going to be in the city from March 14-March 23, and I was thinking of taking some cooking classes or foodie tours/workshops while I'm there. I checked ICE and the CIA, but does anyone have any other suggestions?
The classic Hostess with a homemade, caffeine-filled spin. Chocolate cake filled with coffee buttercream and topped with ganache.
The quiche you've been craving...
These lemon bars use an entire lemon (peel and all!) to pack in as much sweet-tart lemon flavor as possible.
Guilty. I let Betty Crocker do the work for me! But when you've got a craving...
I'm one of the younger serious eaters around here, so excuse me if I sound ignorant!
I recently tried truffles for the first time, shaved over a dish of rigatoni in a light cream sauce. But I didn't "get" them.
Based on all I've read about truffles, I had always thought that they would really elevate a dish to something incredible. They did add a subtle earthiness to the pasta, but not enough to justify the price!
Am I missing something here? Am I unable to taste the magic of truffles?!
Quail wrapped in prosciutto and served over brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes, and mushrooms, with apple and pomegranate reductions. At Della Notte restaurant in Baltimore.
multi-grain bread schmeared with labneh, sprinkled with zaatar, olives, mint, onions, tomatoes, and garlic then crowned with a few cilantro leaves
I was just playing around on webMD's symptom checker (c'mon- who hasn't?), trying to figure out why my ear has been hurting for the past few days, when I came across a medical condition called synesthesia.
Apparently, with some forms of the condition people can "taste" their words! They associate a certain taste with different words. There's one guy who tastes cold bacon when he says "jail".
here's the wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lexical-gustatory_synesthesia
a combination almost as good as carrot cake and cream cheese...
Made with the most amazing bread from Waitrose! And with caramelized bananas.
Papa John's has a way of being convenient and consistent but nothing remarkable. And so it didn't come as a surprise that their newest specialty pizza, the Sausage Sensation, wasn't anything remarkable, either. It's a regular pizza with three kinds of sausage (spicy Italian, sweet, and smoked sausage), red and green peppers, onions and Italian herb seasoning. And when they say herb seasoning, they mean garlic.
I was so excited to see Stonewall Kitchen's new S'mores Brownie Mix ($10.95), which combines toasted marshmallows and rich chocolate with a buttery graham cracker crust to boot! When they were finally finished baking, the marshmallows were crispy and brown on top, as if burnished by an actual campfire.
