Blogger and Food News Roundup

  • Dana, at Phat Duck, has a very informative post on perfecting food purees.
  • Food and Wine is running a food photo contest (h/t Chez Pim). If you are interested in a great cookbook, Food and Wine's annual cookbook is hard to beat.
  • The Amateur Gourmet's July 31 entry sings the praises of Gourmet's July 2006 issue, which provides instructions on how to make the perfect pie crust. Says The Amateur Gourmet: "Bad pie makers, have I got a tip for you. Buy this month's Gourmet magazine and follow their technique for making the perfect pie crust. I am a terrible pie maker and I worked up the courage to follow their recipe after too many bad experiences and guess what? This crust was killer." Who can resist a recommendation like that? **Update: Kit at Kitchen Notes says it's the August 2006 issue of Gourmet.**
  • Rowena has mouth watering posts on the cuisine in Friuli, Italy. Oh, yum.
  • Kathy has a review of Waiola Shave Ice in Honolulu. What I like to order there is lilikoi (passion fruit) syrup, with crack seed, li hing mui powder, all topped with sweetened condensed milk. I used to be a purist until my sister-in-law introduced me to all the fixins'.
  • David Lebovitz has handy instructions regarding cell phones so that you can stay connected on your next trip to Paris.

Oh my, what a nice surprise to see a post of mine listed here but do you know which one I had to take a quick peek at? Yup! The shave ice (and I really was hoping that she had a ton of shave ice photos there just to make me sick for not being in the islands).

I tap my rubber slippers together while I sit here and type..."There's no place like home, there's no place like home...."
