Too Many Chefs post of the week

Yes, we are back again for your reading pleasure, winnowing through the hundreds of food blogs out there looking for a gem or two for your consumption. We do our best to digitally digest the best of the best out there and somehow it's always difficult to decide. Yes there are a few dud food blogs out in cyberland but they tend to be fly-by-night and don't stay on the radar for long. Actually, this time around I've chosen my three from old favourites of ours here at TMC. I hope you like them too.

A. First up is Butter Pig. I'm not sure what the name refers to, but I like the recipe for gyros. It sounds like a fair amount of work, but I think it would be time well invested. I love gyros but often they are a game of chance where your stomach's future happiness is at stake. (I remember one ex-boyfriend who used to beg us on painful food-poisoned mornings-after never, ever to allow him near the Latin Quarter of Paris when drunk. Unfortunately for him, he was impossible to dissuade after a certain number of drinks.) So let us promote safe gyros and prepare them at home under sanitary conditions!

I. Next, as it is the season let us celebrate asparagus with a post from the Domestic Goddess (who tells us what it does).

1. And because I REALLY love asparagus (it's true) I have another Asparagus post from Edible Tulip. I like people who discover new enjoyable tastes through (ahem) slight slip-ups. It reminds me of me.

So I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. With any luck you'll have Barrett back next week but if not I'm more than happy to digitally consume all the food that's fit to print. It's calorie-free!

I returned last week from several days in
The Netherlands, where I have enjoyed the now-in-season white asparagus. Everywhere I went to visit friends and family, I was offered it. Soups, salads, and traditionally served with ham, hard boiled egg/mayonnaise and boiled potato. You cut it all up in pieces and enjoy. Lekker!
