Kenji's hands are as distinctive and easy to identify as those of dear old Julia Child.
It's wonderful to get new citizens in our beautiful and fucked-up country. Best wishes, Adriana. Now about that cat, and more specifically, the utter lack of Yuba. I hope she's OK and is just taking a break before her big Xmas photo shoot. Hint hint.
Is it just me, or is anyone else growing weary of fried eggs resting like a cow flop on otherwise perfectly good food? This egg thing is becoming a cliche- yes it tastes good, but enough.
Not to be an old scold, but if it's made in a restaurant, it's not home made. It's house made.
Wash salad greens in warm water. They take up warmer water more readily than colder and will be more crisp. Sharpen your knives on a Chef's Choice 463 Asian diamond hone sharpener- this tool really works.
It's not a restaurant, but Oscar's Smokehouse in Warrensburg, NY has a huge selection of richly smoked delights, especially lots of different bacons. A great hot dog can be found in Plattsburgh at McSweeney's: the spicy red dogs are worth the extra cost.
Separate, because it's too much starch all in one bite, if in fact you can eat this monstrosity the way God intended, held in one's hand. It's a sandwich. I agree with Pintchow and also want to reject fried eggs as a trendy, over-played topping.
Giant cookies-bah! 'Smores-bah again. Yuba and Hambone- excellent. Please give them their own section, preferably with daily appearances.
As a native of Maine, lobsters were what the tourists from Boston wanted. I prefer soft shelled or steamer clams any day- bigger ocean flavor, less messy, and an excellent vehicle for melted butter.
Waiters who address the whole table as "guys", as in "Are you guys all set for drinks?" and "Would you guys care for dessert?" Don't call me anything, and remember your tip depends on my happiness, I tell them.
That fake bear is no substitute for the soulful, sweet Yuba dog.
Not to be picky or overly defensive of our language, but "cow" refers to a mature female bovine, the bearer of calves. Cows are not generally slaughtered for meat until their useful lives are over. Neutered males, or steers, are the poor buggers whose heads roll for our benefit. Bulls are intact males used only for breeding; their meat tastes slightly of urine. Freemartins are infertile females also slaughtered for meat because if they can't produce a calf, there's no milk and no other value. I would suggest using the terms cattle or steers when describing bovines raised for meat.
In Bakersfield, where the waiter wrote "mile sauce" for mild sauce.
fried rice with lots of oyster sauce
Whatever the Swedish chef on the Muppets chops
The recipe should specify more than new or fingerling, which are vague, because russets fry up much better than boiling potatoes. When in doubt, try Yukon Golds, a mid sort of spud.
