what's the food scene like?

my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

 

current restaurant review: house of curry (sri lankan in rosemount, mn)

 

current whisky review: glen ord 28

 

current recipe: white bean curry with green peppers

Consider yourself to be the food scene. :lol:

bring whatever you think you may need with you.

in fairness, Wendy's HQ is located in the Columbus suburbs, so their stores should be pretty clean, etc.

Columbus is regularly used as a test market for foods, opinion analysis, etc. It's almost perfectly balanced and representative of American incomes, ethnic backgrounds, political attitudes, etc.

The local foie gras is worth seeking out. As is the popcorn and canned okra.
Cambridge University Professor of Electrical Engineering, Sir Charles Oatley, in October, 1948, along with his student Dennis McMullan, began the research that led to the production of the first scanning electron microscope in 1965.

I thought you'd want to know.

First place I ever saw red-leaf lettuce, 1976. That is, lettuce grown to have red leaves, as opposed to green leaves that had turned rusty.

Thanks, wingding.

Jeni's has a "Marie Antoinette inspired" line of ice creams as a special package.

Toasted Brioche with Butter & Jam
Buttercream with brioche crumbs and
handmade jam du jour

Cream of Violet
From the South of France - we've been searching for this very special violet for a long time! This flavor is our current kitchen favorite and the delight of our local chefs!

Orange Flower
A decadent and beautiful flavor - it is sweet and floral and pairs well with custards.

Star Anise & Candied Fennel
A perfect holiday flavor: and beautiful too.
Candied fennel creates a colorful confetti in the cream.
Star anise is a light and warm, mild anise flavor.

Cassis with Whole Milk Yogurt
Almost fromage blanc, black currants
– the best “sherbet” you have ever had!

Pear Riesling sorbet
Pureed fresh pears sweeteded with Austrian Rielsing and a touch of sugar. Lovely and light.



Special Edition
Dreams come in all sizes, shapes, and colors.

tana, i realize that you believe bourdain has superpowers, but surely people in columbus don't go to cleveland to eat or shop for food?

No silly. You PM him what you want to eat, and he'll fly over with it.

There is a REALLY good year-round farmers market there, and there is also Lola, where I would eat in a red-hot minute.

I will point Mr. Ruhlman in this direction and let him scoff at your pitiful insults.

i've not insulted columbus. i just fail to see what a report about cleveland's food scene has to do with columbus, other than to reiterate your affection for bourdain.

Michael Ruhlman dared Anthony Bourdain to come to Cleveland, instead of living as a wastrel on tropical islands. Bourdain took the dare, and brought the TV crew to town last week. Presumably, Ruhlman trotted out the best the city has to offer—since he'd be familiar with it, as a native who returned to his hometown and bought a house. That's why I included that story: because Bourdain went to Ruhlman-recommended places.

I will ask my friend who lives in Chagrin Falls (where "It's a Wonderful Life" was filmed), and she knows some good places.

jesus, tana, are you so hell-bent on making known your love of bourdain that you're not seeing that this thread is asking about columbus, not cleveland? a completely different city and very far away.

i can't believe i spent 5 minutes looking for a lola's in columbus.
