Big Girls Small KitchenDouble Dipped Apple DoughnutsGiven the choice between being home and not being home… I’m the girl that always chooses home. Brooklyn is amazing. San Francisco is delicious. Baltimore is bonkers. Home is also where I keep my fry thermometer and bowl of apples. Home will come soon… until then, I still have some new sights to put my eyes on. Imagine what onion rings would taste like if they were made out of apples instead of onions… and then topped with sugar. Totally easy to imagine, mostly because it’s done and done right here. I never seem to have much luck with an apple corer. See there? The beginning of apple doughnuts! This is a double battered creation. The milk batter adds sugar, spice and flavor, the panko bread crumbs keep the doughnuts crispy. They look just like onion rings, but they’re dessert! Ps. I love to sprinkle these fried apples with powdered sugar, and serve hot out of the fryer. Crispy Apple Doughnuts makes about 24 rings Print this Recipe!

Poires au ChocolatJournal - gastrofotonomia by Manny Rodriguezpalate/palette/plateLottie + Doof2011 » Pete DrinksOne 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. This is truly a beer lovers paradise. Beer Street is their 4.0% Best Bitter.
