When my sister and I took my mom to London for the first time, I asked her what she wanted to eat and the only thing she really, really wanted was to find this canned cheese her father used to bring her when she was a kid. He worked for the British navy (I think) and would frequently bring home little treats like that for his kids, and my aunts and uncle remember it, too. But I couldn't find this cheese in London, and an Internet search revealed that there is a canned cheese that comes out of Australia called Bega. Has anyone tried it? Does anyone know where I can pick up a couple of cans in NYC?
I've begun my Thanksgiving preparations (planning, dry-running, etc.) and since we do a buffet-style dinner with tiny bites throughout the night, I was thinking of doing a selection of pickled and canned things. I have two pickled garlic recipes on deck, fried walnuts, spicy warm olives, and I think some cornichons would really be a great addition. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good brand of jarred cornichons (in case I don't get to canning my own) or a recipe for them? I'm not sure if I can find the tiny cucumbers.
I recently bought five peaches that were big and beautiful and blemish-free...on the outside. After a couple days of ripening, I cracked one open and the inside was a bit brown...There was still some white, but there was brown from the seed and outward. (I ate it, nothing happened.) Is it safe to eat/use the others?
I was checking out some TV listings and it looks like Tyler Florence is making a guest appearance judging a cooking challenge on NBC's latest reality debacle "Momma's Boys." (Yes, 32 women living in a house vying for the love of three men must win over the guys' moms sounds like GREAT television!) I was already mildly disappointed in the whole Applebee's situation, but bad reality television? He deserved Bourdain's Rocco DiSpirito award.
