Too Many Chefs post of the week

Posts of The Week think that's just *#$%$#$$$, and I hate it! (walks out).

OK, we're back. Three good posts this week and we start with:

A. Hot! Hot! Hot! Ow! Ow! Ow! THat's what I thought when I first ran across The Smoking Tongue. There are other good hot sauce blogs out there (I'm thinking the simply named Hot Sauce Blog), but no one to my knowledge has documented the insane quest to eat a bottle of hot sauce a day. Usually, he eats a small bottle, but one day he ate a big bottle of Huy Fong Tuong Ot Sriracha (aka "rooster") sauce. 16 oz. I love the stuff, but it's brutal. I'm glad he doesn't blog the aftereffects the next day. I wonder what Smoking Tongue would have to call that blog!

I. You travel? You eat? Then you should be reading The Traveler's Lunchbox. This week the market serves up some lovely cherries that are promptly made into a Cherry-Almond Gratin that photographs beautifully.

1. Our final post of the week is Seriously Good. I mean, it's from the blog Seriously Good and the post itself ain't too shabby, neither. As a Midwesterner, I love good corn, but I'm usually not inclined to do much to it beyond boiling or grilling it on the cob and digging in. Southerners, however, make a corn pudding out of the stuff and Seriously Good tells us how.

That's it this week. Surf back next week when we explain how we learned how to make a roux from Judith Miller.
