Yeah, my fuck up - so it's a stunted long pepper, from what I can gather...no luck at Dual or the place next door to Kalustyan's?

Why is there a creepy ASL guy with deblasio instead of closed captioning?

Why is there a census instead of mandating Google should give up the data for free?

He's probably there for anyone in the live audience who is deaf. There may even be a 2nd one in the audience. Simultaneous interpretation is very difficult, so there are often two with the second offering assistance if the first one missed something or a made mistake.

And just imagine, the one next to DeBlasio is probably the less creepy looking one.

Assuming it's the same guy, that he, himself, is deaf, explains a lot about his interpreting style

The very same guy! (or as it turns out from the article, a pair). At first I thought he was faking it but from the little ASL I know it seemed like he is actually translating although as you said, often missing details or simplifying. 

 

Live captioning just seems far more productive.

I'd just use a little flour instead.


My mother says thank you! And then she added, "but it will be different!" Uh, yeah, but you asked for substitutions! Plus she has never followed a recipe without making changes, so I'm not sure why she's stuck on matzo. Mothers!

I bought these in Spain under the name "Assam Peppers" - they're somewhat smokey and beautifully aromatic. Seemingly related to long pepper, but much better. Any idea if they're available here and by what name?

Wild Assam Pepper, known as pipli, raru hamang and a host of other names is wildcrafted in the tropical forests of India. The taste is smoky and very tingly, with a citrus peel aftertaste and much less piquancy than black pepper. Wild Assam pepper is a true pepper, closely related to long pepper and familiar black pepper. It has been used in seasoning and Ayurvedic medicine for millennia.

Seems more easily available in Europe, but https://www.flavourf...sam-peppercorns

Good find; all I could find were sources in Europe, as you say.
