Sous vide (which the poorly informed call boil-in-the-bag), is back in the news. Not via Heston Blumenthal's magic but because of Gordon Ramsay, who overnight became a pioneer in demystifying the technique of sous vide for his gastropubs, and doing so attracted negative national press attention. Gordon is nearly right when he says "there is not a chef in this country who doesn't use sous vide". But to be fair to the other chefs they use sous vide in their own kitchens. I never thought that I'd find myself giving some support to Gordon, but on this occasion I think he's taken a bum rap .
I think you’ll love this colorful, pretty fruit salad, which is drizzled with a lovely orange-vanilla syrup, which glosses it up and makes it visually irresistible, which makes you want to stand over the bowl and slurp up every single bite, which won’t leave any for your brunch guests. So logic would probably tell you not not to make it.
After the holidays I have the hardest time falling back into the rhythm of my normal life. As I sit here looking around and the gift boxes, empty toy boxes and those dang twist-tie things ; and don’t even get me started on the holiday decorations that eventually need to be packed away, I’m feeling extremely disorganized and overwhelmed with it all.
Yesterday as I stood in the kitchen trying to figure out what to make for dinner I wondered to myself, how do those people do it on those shows where they are given random ingredients and are suppose come up with something genius. I think I stood there for a solid 20 minutes looking in the cupboards and staring into the freezer hoping that I would be struck by some ingenious idea. Then I saw the oranges and it hit me “O-raang Shh-ikun”….that is orange chicken if you can’t understand the accent.

Now, I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I swear by. I love it, I think it is incredible, and I haven’t changed my mind about that. However, as much as it pains me to say it, these chocolate chip cookies by Jacques Torres are absolutely, without a doubt, the best chocolate chip cookies that I have ever made or tasted in my entire life.
