  1. Anna N, That is very direct, and I appreciate the honesty. Is there another classic compendium which deserves consideration?
  2. Good day eG peoples! I am going to purchase a copy of Larousse Gastronomique (English, because I cannot speak French as well as most French toddlers), and I am wondering which version you think is better and why? Let your opinions fly freely...hold nothing back!

    New from Washington DC

    I would bet that Chef Puck and Chef Keller have had their influences in my cooking, but to date, I have not actually prepared any of their recipes first hand. The French Laundry Cookbook arrived at the house on Friday, and finally had the opportunity to crack it open yesterday...it's so damn gorgeous. So, the menu planning for a Keller immersion (sous vide pun intended) in the coming weeks is underway! What would you recommend as the 1st step into Chef Puck's work? Cheers, KJ

    Mini marshmallows: fun or gross?

    I like marshmallows, and each has a different flavor and varying texture to me; homemade minis are relatively easy to make (see Bravetart)...Could you hold a blind taste test with some of your regulars? To marsh or not to marsh, and if to marsh...then which to marsh?
  5. Hi all! I am happy to have found eG, and I am excited to engage my curiosity and discuss all things food. I'm new in the pro kitchen, but my explorations are proceeded by a lifetime of cooking adventures dishes or family and friends...I simply outgrew what I could do at home and took the next step, an apprenticeship on Capitol Hill in DC. my skills burst forward, from there and my curiosity continues to grow. Friends advised me that eG is another opportunity for exposure to the I-mind of interested, engaged, and intellectual thought stream of kitchen professionals and enthusiasts, so I had to jump in. I am glad to have found this source and will do my best to keep up with the group. My influences are J.Kenji Lopez-Alt, David Chang, Gabrielle Hamilton, Grant Achatz, Deborah Madison, Marcella Hazan, Douglas Alexander, Michael Ruhlman, Samin Nosrat, Stella Parks, and Julia Child. Have a fantastic day in the kitchen, Kate "KJ" Phillips
