Whew…finally, after all those years of debating, fighting, advertising, and seeing Russian from the backyard, it’s over. Wa hoo!
Absolutely Divine Devil’s Food Cake? What more do I need to say. Thank you SF Chronicle for satisfying everyone’s favorite craving.
I’d never had a chestnut until I went to culinary school way back when. I made Thanksgiving stuffing with them one year and really loved it. They have a nutty taste and a rich, smooth texture. I loved Russ Parson’s article about the humble nut in today’s LA Times and his recipe for celery root-chestnut puree looks delish too.
If you are a “Yelper” or just look at yelp for your restaurant, dentist, carpet cleaner, or watering hole recommendations, today’s NY Times article about the site is a must read.
The Washington Post might be next Wednesday regular stop. Today’s article about giving Jacque Pepin $24 and watching him create an impromptu meal was fabulous. I’m definitely making his short ribs with mushrooms!
Have a good day!
