At the moment I'm making hot chocolate from freshly roasted and ground cacao beans, sweetened with brown cane sugar, seasoned with a little cinnamon. Nothing else compares. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Haven't seen sumo ones around here. This one is an Orri mandarin, and damn it's good (even though it doesn't look overly exciting). The peel consists of like 50% essential oils. And oh it's so juicy -- the mandarin-flesh that is, not the peel.

How much candy do you eat, dude?
post #2059 of 3039
Not all that much, but I do have a sweet tooth, that is correct. I bought the túrron five days ago and I still have 2/3 of it. Most of the pastiglie leone are gone, but they've just 30g, so it's like drinking a little less than a can of coke.

I just spent an hour thumbing through the two volume "Notes from a Kitchen". I wasn't sure whether to put it in the 'happy' or 'pissed off' column, but really what's not to like about a beautiful book and chefs talking about their love of food. Well, ok, it pretty much triggered my "hipster fed up with hipsters" reflex which automatically takes me out of the moment but that happens every few hours for me anyways.

Recently I've become a regular at the only 24 hour diner in my city. I walk in, sit down, and without saying a word, the waitress hands me a Dr Pepper and puts in an order for a bacon cheeseburger, plain, with an over-medium fried egg on it. Whatever is going wrong with my day immediately takes a trip to the back burner once I take that first bite.

Just saw Stephen Starr walking grumpily out of the shitty little PA-run wine store near my apartment.

I've complained about the state wine monopoly before, but I change my mind. Government run business = the great equalizer icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

You need deep pockets to carry all the salt around.

If you're actually interested in working in restaurants, it might not be a bad idea to look at EMP. Most of their staff is under 30 and from talking to the bartender it seemed like you don't really need much restaurant experience at all to get hired by them. I'm considering applying in the semi near future myself.

Chef's pants don't have to be baggy.
