Matt's recipe from the recipe thread.
This post has a severe lack of egg cream and unusual sources of acidity.
Indeed it does.
On the subject of Boston: what made me very happy in Boston was Polar Seltzer water. I wish I could get that here.
Really?? what's so great about it? what do you do with it? I went to get some tonic water in New York and accidentally bought that... it's still in my fridge! you want??
Hell yeah I want it. It's just great, imo. Nice and crisp, nicely carbonated. We can't get any good club soda or unflavored sodas where I live.
What the what?
Ol' Dave Bhowie took me around the city, treating me to killer cocktails. And now I am rip-roaring and ready to go on the cocktail craze. However, taking a short perusal through my local liquor store's liqueur section made me decide against it. I guess I can afford to make martinis.
These are seriously good.
Are they really good? I wasn't that happy with their madeleines - too dry. The ones from Fauchon were much better. Which brings me to the next point- what kind of madeleine backing dishes do you prefer? Solid steel/alu/whatever or silicone ones? I'll soon order a pan and a tamis/drum sieve/flour sieve by De Buyer from amazon.fr and will probably order madeleine backing dishes, too. Peut-être de De Buyer aussi.
Edit: Didn't see "These are seriously good." when I read your post. This most likely answers my question. But still, what do you now of croquants de noix de coco since you are Indian? If they were croquants de mangue, I'd definitely value your opinion.
This is quite nice. Tastes a lot of pork's head and tongue, but in a good way. Bought in Laguiole, in a small store in the village where Bras' products are sold, too (Matt probably knows which one I mean).
I lived in Europe all my life, so don't worry.
They're good, the coconut pieces make the cookie less dry I guess.
I was just kidding. If I see them in the supermarket (which I somehow doubt, damn Germany...), I'll give them a try.
(but if you lived all your life in Europe, to what extent do you actually consider yourself to be Indian and thus completely bonded with mangos? )
I know you were joking, I remember our conversation.
As for mangos, have been eating them all my life I suppose, it's my favourite. I developed a taste for certain varieties naturally.
I live in the Netherlands and these cookies aren't hard to find here.
FWIW, I was joking again concerning your middle part.
In fact, I might be living in the Netherlands (i.e. Maastricht) from August/September on to attend my studies, so I might get them then.
Maastricht is a great place and near Belgium ofcourse, so I would travel for maybe half an hour every now and then, for some great chocolate.
