My Chez Panisse Experience : Cafe Fernando – Food Blog - berkeley - chez panisse - san francisco - Restaurants June 23rd, 2011 | Category: Restaurants, Travel Two years before opening Chez Panisse, Alice Waters, together with her friend from the Montessori Centre, started a journey from London and ended up in a remote village in Turkey. In the middle of nowhere, they ran out of gas and asked for help from a big-eyed boy. The boy mimed there wasn’t any gas left to pump and when they asked for food, this time he led them to his house. He built a fire out of pine cones, put on a teapot and came back with a tiny piece of cheese, which he then cut into microscopic portions before serving them. Alice, realizing that the big-eyed boy has given them everything he has without expecting anything in return, was deeply moved.

Piccadilly Carrot Souffle Recipe This is an amazingly easy recipe to follow and very delicious. None of my family was able to guess that it was carrots. I made this for our Christmas Dinner last year and everyone loved it, including the children. They all thought it was sweet potatoes or yams. Now, this recipe is a copykat of Piccadilly Cafeteria's recipe. If you wanted to switch up and put less sugar I am sure that you could, but again we indulged for the holiday and make it just as the recipe stated. Best Food Blog Awards 2014: Winners Each year we've hosted the Best Food Blog Awards, we're astounded at the depth, variety, creativity, and ingenuity of the food blogs nominated, and this year was no exception. They've inspired us to pull out our cameras, travel to experience new foodways, and most importantly, inspired us to get in our kitchens and cook. Congratulations to this year's winners, and a big thank you to everyone who nominated and voted for them!

2011 » Pete Drinks One of my big beer obsessions is exploring the ever growing London brewing scene; the London Brewers page I maintain here isn’t so much a public service as a ‘to drink’ list. Here, we pay our first visit to a brewpub – specifically, the Bull in Highgate which has the added benefit of being the brewery geographically closest to my house! The Bull has been there for a very long time, but it’s only a matter of months since Dan Fox took the place over, refurbished it into a stylish space and somehow managed to cram a small, 2.5 barrel brewery – the London Brewing Company – into the corner of the kitchen. Ok, so it’s not going to put Fullers out of business any time soon but despite the size they aim to keep four of their own brews on tap at any one time. They also manage to sell one of the more impressive collection of craft beer from around the world – draft and bottled – that I’ve come across in a pub.

Good Morning Sunshine Bars I have some really exciting news, folks. Set your TiVos to “awesome”, because I am going be on Anderson Cooper Live on Thursday, February 28th! Three competitors were chosen to face off in Anderson’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Challenge, where I will be force feeding Mr. Cooper cookie after cookie. It’ll be just like that episode of The Simpsons where Homer goes to hell for eating the Forbidden Doughnut, and they hook him up to that machine that feeds him a million doughnuts and he still asks for more. I hope that you will all watch as I embarrass myself on national television.

Thank Your Body Spring has sprung around here, which means two things…leftover lamb (from a traditional dinner that’s been passed down from my husband’s family) and temperamental weather. This year, a blustery day arrived at ... It’s the Monday after Easter, and you’re looking at a pile of brightly colored hard-boiled eggs that look a little worse for the wear. Time to recycle! Deviled eggs are a wonderful treat any time of year, and ...

Avocado Pasta Recipe Avocado pasta has been floating around the internet forever but even though I have a major obsession with avocados, I was never compelled to give it a go. I just couldn’t really imagine warm avocado sauce. It’s not that I had a problem with warm avocados – I’ve had avocado fries (deep-fried tempura avocado) and they’re delicious! As was this pasta, when I finally decided to give it a try. The best thing about this recipe is that it comes together as fast as instant mac and cheese: you just have to boil your pasta, blend your sauce and you’re good to go. I went with bowties because bowties are the cutest pasta shape out there.

Homemade Peanut Butter Once you make peanut butter at home, it will be very difficult to get excited about storebought peanut butter ever again. Not that eating peanut butter of any kind would ever be a chore because I love it so, but homemade peanut butter is a delicacy. And a nearly effortless delicacy at that. It’s akin to savoring a piece of high-end dark chocolate that’s rich and pure, uncomplicated by fillers, additives, or ingredients that have no place being in chocolate; and then grabbing a milk chocolate bar in the checkout line at the grocery store, which is likely a combination of tasteless, grainy, and waxy.

But somewhere in my teenage years, it became a yearly tradition and she wowed family and friends (and got them tipsy too!) with this recipe.
