  1. Drinks! 2017

    This advice holds true for Australia, and I can't see why it wouldn't hold true for anywhere else. Antique stores. Charity shops. You might call them something else, but I'm sure the concept exists -- people donate stuff to a shop, the shop sells the stuff, the proceeds from the sale go to whatever charitable cause the shop is affiliated with. Yeah. Anyway, you buy second hand glasses from those places. You can get some killer bargains. You may stumble on a full set of something nice, sold way below whatever it's worth. You may also run into odds and ends -- ones and twos and threes. I like this, given I have limited storage space.

    Nothing like a Zombie to fuck your shit up.
  3. By accident, I guess. But I'd have done it intentionally, too, given the booze you have is always a better option than the booze you don't have.
  4. Drinks! 2017

    Chris Hennes: I love your glassware.
  5. I'm sitting here with a St Columbus Rill. It's workable. The name, though ... Jimmy McNulty would contend that Bushmill's is Protestant whiskey.
  6. Chinese barbeque pork -- ideas, please

    There's a recipe that's done in a wok. I've seen that doing the rounds here. It's maybe the least time-consuming variation I've seen. I liked the method in the recently-released All Under Heaven, though. The book itself is a worthy addition to most anyone's collection, and the pork appealed to adult and child alike. I served leftovers in a sandwich, just as I would with any kind of roast or barbecued meat. It's not like the flavour profile is too far removed from barbecue.
  7. My stepdaughter went crazy for the World Peace Cookies.
  8. Lucky Peach Power Vegetables

    I've enjoyed everything I've made from it.
  9. "Les Halles Cookbook" by Anthony Bourdain

    I liked the rabbit dish.
  10. The cookbooks of fall 2016

    I've ordered Dorie's Cookies. I picked up All Under Heaven and Power Vegetables! I like the latter. Haven't invested enough time in the former, although I did make the pilaf.
  11. I've caved. Having a step-daughter gives me an excuse to get into baking. All those lunchboxes that need to be filled.
  12. Drinks! 2016 (Part 1)

    The Glee Club from Dead Rabbit: amontillado jacked with yellow Chartreuse, raspberry eau de vie, absinthe and bitters (I used Ango).
  13. Drinks! 2016 (Part 1)

    I put away a couple of Martinis last night. Both based on .75 oz Dolin dry and 2.5 oz gin. I made one with Miller's Westbourne and the other with West Winds Cutlass.
  14. Drinks! 2016 (Part 1)

    A Brooklyn using my freshly-opened Amer Picon. I think I like it more than the Manhattan.
