a chef, a blogger, and censorship…

According to blogger D.C. Foodies, Chef Carole Greenwood of Washington, D.C. restaurant, Buck’s Fishing & Camping had her attorney send a letter to him advising him not to post pictures of his meal at her restaurant! How’s that for hospitality?

wolfgang everywhere!

Wolfgang in Kansas City International, originally uploaded by ulteriorepicure. Flying out of Kansas City International Airport has never been such an international experience… Not that Wolfgang Puck’s ubiquitous “Californian cuisine” is international, but this kiosk sure makes me wonder how much more commercialized the Austrian chef can get… I mean, what’s next, Mario Batali vending […]

Yesterday, I fixed my toilet – sans plumber, just me and a monkey wrench. I’m beaming with pride.

my new toy…

My very own OXO Mandoline Isn’t she a beaut? Thanks to Mr. Williams of Sonoma, California (actually he should be thanking me for spending too much money on his enterprise), I am now the proud owner of my very own OXO mandoline. I’ll be able to slice, julienne, waffle cut, and crinkle cut to my […]

to market, to market…

A piggy I ain’t but a piggy I bought. Yesterday, I went to one of my favorite markets for ingredients for a dinner party I threw last night (more on that later…). One of the things I love about the place is that that the staff is so personable and friendly. For instance: I had […]

i’m still here…

Sorry folks for my absence.  I’ve been “off-roading” across the country. I have been spending quite a bit of time in the garden, as well as visiting my parents. Foodie posts will resume shortly.

salt lick, anyone?…

Those who know me well, know that I don’t have much of a “sweet tooth.” I’m more of a salt lick. If I ever get the muchies, I’ll always pick salty over sweet. At ballparks, dad used to get mad at me for sucking all the salt out of the shells and not eating the […]

the great american dessert

Courtesy of epicurious.com A recent email discourse with an acquaintence: She: What are some “great American desserts?” Me: Hmm… well, A). Fruit Pies (apple, cherry, peach, blueberry, keylime, lemon meringue…I could go on forever…) [Edit: Frequent Citations reminds me that I should have included non-fruit pies – most notably pumpkin and pecan pies – both […]
