I gave my kale a good dose of frottage last night and rather than blanch and saute as we usually do, we had as a salad. Great tip via foodguy - it was terrific.

one of my all-time favorite food typos ... in a cookbook a writer referred to fraisage (kneading pate brisee) as frottage. made it so much better that she was a beauty queen who constantly railed about other chefs dress.

I came close to figging someone at a Halloween party years ago. Someone explained what the term meant, we thought it was hilarious, and I drunkenly whittled a ginger buttplug. The plan was derailed by one very disapproving fiancee.

Never, ever, NEVER Google an Ed thing.

I still shudder at what Googling "the humbler" brought up.

actually, i had to look it up too (got the gist from context). but i'd differ with wikipedia's etymology. there's a long history of fig slang in Italian. dates back to a supposed king who discovered that some of his nobles had been less than so. so he gathered the three together. one he disemboweled. the next he flayed. the third was quaking in his boots. what would his punishment be? "eat a fig" the king told him. "eat a fig? perche no?" so the king led him out to the courtyard where there stood a giant donkey, the king stuck the fruit up the donkey's butt and pronounced: "ecco, il fico".
may not be true, but it's fun. and very VERY ed.

Can we assume that your next book will be called Where to Pick a Fig?

this is a good idea. It'll have that Foraz inside joke element.

I only googled 'milt' after Matt mentioned it.

Have you made kale chips? I am seriously contemplating making these.

Lol, although fraisage brings to mind creative uses of strawberries...

Yeah, my wife makes them as our kids like them. i guess I do too, but they seem to eat them before I get a chance to sample.
