Posts of the Week - we don't drink butter, but we admit, we've been tempted. Mmmmm... Butter.
A. Heidi, of 101 Cookbooks Fame, has the geekiest post of the week, and as a confirmed geek, I do not say that lightly. Heidi discovers that when you use liquid nitrogen to make ice cream, you get a pretty darn good ice cream. Liquid Nitrogen, by the by, is formed at -196 C/-320.8 F, or just a tad colder than Chicago in late January.
1. Have you heard of this new little blog called Chocolate & Zucchini? Oh that's right, it's probably the single most popular food blog out there. Well, Clotilde this week posts a recipe for one of my absolute favorites - Croissants aux Amandes. Flaky, almondy, sweet, and served with a cup of cafe creme. Nice!
I. Tuna Toast, who is from Los Angeles by way Tokyo by way of Los Angeles writes about the most hated vegetable in Britain. Yeah, I got lost somewhere in there, too. But I didn't lose interest in her Carmelized balsamic Brussels sprouts recipe. Sometimes you have to love your incredibly tiny cabbage thingies.
Three more posts next week that will make you go Mmmmm... unexplained bacon...
