Ducasse is great. There is so much about him I would like to hate, but his recipes and restaurants are so good, and while I disagree with some of the "keep French food French" sentiments he expressed some years ago, I think he has been wonderful for the food world. If you just take his Grand Livre series, sure, he sells them, but they are basically a gift to the knowledge base of fine food and basically will form the backbone, along with the El Bulli books, of how people...
No idea. I have one but it is kind if sun bleached. Doesn't bother me because it happened on my watch. Love the straw a chair. We have straw Dixon barstools and I adore those. I love straw and wicker. Think I am going to grab some cane superleggera chairs soon.
The felt felt chairs are the most interesting. The whole idea was a take on Joseph beuys so it shouldn't be a surprise.
We are south of norcal but we have all of the same animals. I would never let the dear boy out unsupervised. I don't actually worry about any of the animals hunting him, I just worry about him stumbling into some kind of stupidity.
This thread is for food questions, not coffee questions. We can't go down this hellhole of geekery and still pretend to be called styleforvm.
The cattle dog shriek is horrifying.
If he were as dumb as a teenager he would live in a kennel.
Yes on one sofa, no on the other. He's pretty smart and can tell the difference.And I agree. Just trying to point out that dogs are dogs, not wolves and that all research done recently points to them not having strictly defined pack instinct and structure when found in wild circumstances. There are no rules about who mates, they don't help raise puppies, hunting leadership is fluid, social issues are more fluid and violent than in wolves, so all of the related theories on...
So, Norbert is working on his send aways and recalls over jumps. I swear he would do it just for the chance to jump. When we go out for a hike, the first thing he does out the door is run to his jump, then again when he gets out of the car, no matter how far he has gone. Also, I know I am biased, but he is gorgeous.
The animal instinct of dogs is pretty unclear and hotly debated. Most of the newer research disproves a lot of the old wolf based, alpha, pack structure thinking, and that has greatly changed the way dogs have been trained over more recent times. Different dogs have been bred for such different things that to claim that they all have a basic "dog instinct" is silly.
