It's a special moment when you realize another mortal being understands you: your wants, your needs, your desires, and yes, your cravings for breakfast burritos. And we have found that in Jim Gaffigan, thanks to his delightful new book Food: A Love Story. Is this not our own love story, Jim?!
If you've ever wondered what Jamie Oliver looks like singing a Taylor Swift song ... we'd ask you why you would ever wonder that. But now we know, and it's still kind of weird. But the cakes look good!
It's time to face the facts: if you want to open a restaurant that is a) not ginormous, b) not in Las Vegas, and c) does not serve donkey sauce, you are not going to ever be a millionaire. Sorry to disappoint.
It's been a bode for female chefs this month, after Acquavit'sEmma Bengtsson landed a second Michelin star for the restaurant. She's only the second female executive chef to have two Michelin stars under her belt (the first being Dominique Crenn in San Francisco). Turns out, Bengtsson almost didn't take the job in the first place. With the wave of her success, it's safe to say now: no more excuses, lady chefs.
The weather outside (on the East Coast) is frightful, etc., except without all the cheeriness of Christmas, because Snowstorm Pax a February blizzard. Not cool, Pax. What are we supposed to do in February? Cuddle up with our Valentines? Gross. No one wants to do that. And what about single people? Frankly, the only solution we could think of to pass the time was looking through all of our favorite snow-inspired molecular gastronomy creations. Please don’t start playing with liquid nitrogen canisters in your kitchen at home as a result of looking at these, because we don’t know how long it will take an ambulance to come for you if you accidentally freezeburn your tongue off. But do look at these whimsical culinary winterscapes and fantasize that the outside world is your edible snow oyster, by all means.
