  1. Taste is similar to drip coffee but you are going to get more body in your cup. I like that about it
  2. i really love those croutons! they are so different and good
  3. wow so beautiful!! I've done this recipe and added gelatin to it but I take it that's not what you did? Did you just cook the curd, blend it then pour into the form with a liner and chill or cook it again? great work
  4. thanks! i didn't realize you could buy that seprately I'd love to have it all but that's way more affordable
  5. so, scald the milk, whisk into your eggs/egg yolks sugar mixture then throw it in a container on a shelf above the stove and call it a day?
  6. So I have a friend in a similar situation, well he went to culinary school first at a local community college. But later ended up at the San Francisco Baking Institute and had nothing but raves about the quality of instruction and bread https://www.sfbi.com/
  7. kind of depends on your skill level and if you want to go into more regional Mexican cooking. There are a lot of newish cookbooks on Mexican food out there although the classics are still great. there really is a something good going on right now in Mexican cookbooks: All these came out this year Made in Mexico: The Cookbook: Classic And Contemporary Recipes From Mexico City Oaxaca: Home Cooking from the Heart of Mexico My Mexico City Kitchen: Recipes and Convictions [A Cookbook] Tu Casa Mi Casa: Mexican Recipes for the Home Cook
  8. Impressive find! Thank you. It's always good to brush up on my spanish too. The quality of the spanish food press is impressive -montagud has some amazing books as well some with some 'bi-lingual' english/spanish
  9. Eric Kayser and market pictures
  10. Promise i'll post pictures but Fulgrances was pretty incredible. we ended up going for dinner even though I was thinking lunch. 3 bottles of wine later. Price per value on the wine was off the hook compared to the US We eneded up with 3 very different wines for about 5o euros each between the 4 of us ,one from the Jura, one Gamay and one from Alsace to finish. . BTW if anyone is going they have a wine bare across the street that I could not recommend more highly. we paid 21 euro for 4 good and interesting glasses. Both locations there was no oroblems with english. The Som was great. The neighborhood was so so but couldn't be happier we went. Promise more pictures to come (won't say they will be good) Going to try and hit up Frenchies to go in the am . Think I'm going to try and make a stop here Looks great!
  11. I will post some pictures later but we ended up in the Marais and stumbled on Les Philosophes http://www.cafeine.com/philosophes turned out be a good choise. had some fantastic raw milk cheeses, a tomato tart tatine and pork rillettes. Also consumed was a merguez baguette on the street (yum) and adult beverages at the Caribbean-ish theamed Pick Clops (wifi password: elgringo)! which was fun. btw appearantly pick clops are the underage kids who pick up cigarette butts off the street to smoke
  12. I've followed his blog from early on! In fact sent the bride and groom there as well!
  13. Thank you for the information! btw If it helps I'll be staying in the 19th during the week and in the 8th for the wedding this S/SN
