    You want to hear about the extraordinary socarrat I developed under this choucroute?

    Is moderation outside human nature?

    Interesting. As in What if the 1st World consumed EVERYTHING in moderation?

    Ah, Sam Wo's. When son was at school, he would take late afternoon flights home, arriving here around mid-night, En route from the airport, he would ask to hit either Pancho Villa on 16th St for his first decent burrito in months, or Sam Wo's.

    Want. joe, those dumplings look nicely formed to me. This is a meal we really hanker for as we still won't buy takeout that waits only some half dozen blocks away.
  7. Long time and iconic Toy Boat ice cream shop on Clement Street has been offered for sale for about a month. A neighborhood bastion for generations, there has been a lot of hand-wringing but no great solutions. Now Jane Bakery, a superb bakery with several outposts, is considering taking it on with only minor changes to the idiosyncratic corner shop, BUT adding Jane's fabulous baked goods to the offerings. Sounds like a win-win to me.
  8. Very sad. Particularly since in our hood. But in (questionably) good company as many houses considered too venerable to fail, fail.

    Run of the mill ice cream is a prime example. Eat a pint and it's been no great pleasure. Several tablespoons of great artisan or excellent homemade and you're content.

    We, Americans, have no right to eat as much meat as we do. I am appalled at meat portions in restaurants and even in recipe serving sizes. We are a society of hogs. It's a Catch 22 situation. When I've complained in restaurants about portion size, the answer is always that their clients demand that size. And the client sees a pound of beef on his plate and that becomes his default serving size.

    My entire kitchen interest is in eating or feeding others. I do get your point about critiquing food served to me. it's about getting the best onto a plate. I find meat something very easy to skip. "International poor people's food", starch, veg, herb and spice based, is my natural bent, I don't like the label veg or vegan because it has been applied to so much pretentious modern cutesy food. Classic peasant food from every/any corner of the world is usually more interesting. (At the moment we're having "bits and pieces" early country lunch: black bean salad, potato salad, leftover sauteed apples, cheese tortellini en brodo, tomato and watermelon gaspacho.

    I know this feeling. I think it is a kind of anorexia one acquires/falls into when on a prolonged. SUCCESSFUL weight loss regime. I have at times totally lost interest in foods that I was avoiding or limiting. Eyes on the prize etc.
  13. As the resident Philistine, I like Rooster sauce. But willing to learn as well as chase wild geese, I'll see if I can source Sriraja Panich and report back.
