Bake the Book: Crêpes: 50 Savory and Sweet Recipes

My ate first real crepe while on a train from Paris to London. Right before I boarded, I ran around the station looking for a crepe shop to order a strawberry crepe. At last I found a little shop and they quickly wrapped it to go and off I went. While on the train as soon as I took the first bite, I was in love.

From Behind the Bar: On Drinking for Free

The article is excellent at highlighting that we are not machines and that people in the food service industry really care about the products and the customers that they serve. It is really disappointing to read about people who believe bar tenders, waiters, and baristas are only in it for the tips because that is simply not true. We are trying to serve the best product possible as well as inform people on what they are consuming to add a new dimension to their food. It is important to remember that we are not machines, we are humans.

Around the Caffeinated World: Ethiopia

I really liked this piece! I worked as a Barista this summer and became hooked on Ethiopian beans! The owner of the coffee shop where I worked had a small roaster and roasted his own beans. This summer he picked up a shipment of green Ethiopian Harrar, and the rest is history. It was the most amazing cup of coffee I have tried in my entire life. He also used it as an espresso, which was equally off the charts, and may I say maybe even a better way to enjoy it.

It's my 21st birthday, what should I drink first?

Thanks for all the amazing advice! I am glad to hear that people care about others' safety while drinking. I did not go crazy, I had a glass of wine with dinner, and it didn't affect me at all. I really liked it though, it was Dr. Loosen, a dry German Riesling. It tasted like crisp apples with a hint of pear. Although more exciting, tonight is 5X7 at Whole Foods, where they offer 5 different samplings of food and 5 samples of drinks (wine and beer)! Thanks for you thoughts and I look forward to trying a little of everything!
