Too Many Chefs post of the week

Posts of the Week has been on hiatus (which is Latin for "in hiding from the Feds"), but now that Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling are behind bars, we're back and our attorneys assure us we can be for at least a little while.

So here are three posts we liked this week from the world of food blogs that you can enjoy while we hope we won't soon have to fight Kenny-Boy Lay for the top bunk.

A. Hot hot hot. What We're Eating starts us off with a Wasabi-Pea Encrusted Salmon w/ Potatoes and Bok Choy. There is so much wasabi in this dish that the dang salmon in the photo is green. I like the dialogue nature of this post and the fact that Tyler calls Amanda "dude". I find that totally gnarly.

I. I love foods where intense colors pull you into the dish even before you can smell or taste them. For Sugar High Friday #19, Nami-Nami made a Chocolate-Ginger Tartlet with a filling that promises deep rich flavor from the first glance. Ae we entirely sure that tartlet isn't actually a hole in the space-time continuum? Nice-Nice!

1. I'm not familiar with Phat Phrik Khing, a Thai pork and long bean dish, but Austin Bush at Real Thai makes it look delicious. This beautifully photographed site takes us into the heart of Thai cuisine from the view of someone discovering an entire culture in depth. Well worth monitoring.

That's it for this week. Uh-oh, is that Jeffrey Skilling in the back of that police van outside? I gotta go - see you next week (I hope).
