I have fond childhood memories of family dinners at Clifton's. Best part, then, was not good food but choosing from the treasure chest at the end of the meal. Reading this post brought a smile to my face. Thanks.

Although I was not so crazy about Key West, I was very taken by St. Augustine and Anastasia State Park. Great Farmer's Market and a cuban cafe to rival any on Calle Ocho in Miami. I think we bought cooked and ate those pink shrimp everyday for a week.

The food revolution is everywhere. I just hope that it sticks and does not become a passing fad like Mexican sandals and day glow paint.

I have this great old cookbook called A Wolf In Chef's Clothing. It's a picture book for men to use to do the most basic of cooking. There are more illustrations than words.

Even the best miss an editorial flub from time to time. Thought you might want to know about the one in your rib post. "Mash 12 large garlic cloves of garlic" Cheers!
Is it me, or is there a piece missing from the article. There has to be more. Why did Marcus want to have lunch with you?

Funny that, people who cook some of the most fancy food in the world eat like peasants. Which, in my book, is the best way to eat. Fancy is occasion food, sausages and beer are great daily sustenance.

Sure do love that Nawlins food, but hate that southern states are still stuck on styrofoam. Made it hell to get things to go last summer when we did 6,000 miles down there. I asked for foil a lot, and did a lot of splainin' about eco friendly containers.

All very pretty, but how did it taste?

nothing better than New Orleans food..... except that I am not at all a raw oysters fan..... just can't get past my fear of eating organs.... and bivalves have them.

I don't really care who the chefs were, never been the "Star Struck" type, but do want to know how the scallops tasted, and what that French Laundry guy (yes, everyone should know who he is) made. Off on my own culinary adventure for six to eight months traveling the country and eating what's local and traditional. Farmer's markets, here we come!

The flu fu.... do adults really say that? Anyway, can you use this same preparation on a leaner piece of meat, or is it the fat that is necessary for this dish to turn out correctly? A pork loin perhaps?
