Saturday night in Cocoa Beach

Pumpkin Lover

Recommended Posts

Not too much about Cocoa Beach around here, but I did see on another thread that Cocoa Beach is great for BBQ and seafood.

I'll be down there Saturday night with a friend who really loves wine bars. Me, I would love a great stone crab -- Grand Central Oyster Bar is currently selling a claw for $11.95 (don't quote me, but something around there). I've paid twice already and totally enjoyed it, but I'd love to be able to eat as many as possible when I'm in FL.

So, either wine bars and/or great places for seafood, hopefully for a stone crab, but the best recommendations you got, I'll take em. Thanks <3

I wish I could help you. Your questions are great. I'm within an hour from Cocoa and if I knew there was a good wine bar and a place for good stone crab in the Cocoa Beach area, I would be there Saturday myself. :smile: Actually on Saturday I am heading even further south, to the Melbourne area.

There are some decent wine bars popping up around, but not in, Daytona. For good stone crab, I buy it locally and fix it myself at home. I'll be watching for replies to your inquiry, but I'm afraid it's not good news.

Life is short; eat the cheese course first.

Susan, thanks for your reply. After I posted this, I did some research and came to understand how (relatively) rare stone crabs are in the first place. Buying them and fixing them myself is certainly an option, either preparing them in FL or taking them frozen with me back to NYC. Are they easily available at supermarkets? or specialty seafood stores, or gourmet food shops?

Also, I've been trying to more research -- it's not looking good -- I think I need to get myself ready for tiki bars or something. Oh boy (but I am excited about coming to FL, overall).

      Hello friends,
      We recently got our selmi plus ex and have had a handful of successful runs. So far mostly with our enrobing line. 
      Theres been 2 occasions now that I have noticed when tempering the machine is cooling past the target temp. When it does this it goes down into the 28c range and the screw pump has to shut off due to the temp and viscosity. 
      I also noticed the manual is pretty light on operational procedures. 
      The 2 things I can think of that might be causing this other then an equipment error is 
      the chocolate used is to thick or there is a build up of chocolate around the temperature probe near the faucet. 
      Wondering if anyone else has had this issue before.

      Hello! I'm fairly new to this site so I don't know if my search was weak. I'm trying to find a way to make Mandarin orange puree at home, but I couldn't find anything even similar in the forum. I am a home cook, but I have been making chocolate bonbons and other confections for over 4 years (intermitantly). It is too expensive for me to purchase this online- not because of the price of the puree, but the cost of shipping makes it prohibative. The recipes I've seen online are all differant and don't seem to be what I need. 
      I would love any help with this! I look forward to hearing and learning from those who have much, much more experience than me. Thanks!

      Help! I am an amateur and make chocolate truffles, bonbons, and caramels for friends and family. I made some soft caramel for filling molded bonbons. The flavor and consistency are fine, but the caramel is filled with bubbles. I don't know how to get the air bubbles out, and am concerned using it in my molded chocolates. I would like to know if it is okay to use. I have been making confections for about four years and this is the first time this has happened. I would really appreciate any help! I'm new to the forum and don't know anyone yet.

      I am making molded bunnies for Easter and I am finding that the
      necks are cracking and the head breaks away from the body. I have noticed that the neck is not as thick as the rest of the bunny. Total grams for this bunny is 200.
      Does anyone have any suggestions on how to rectify this? Oh yeah I didn't mention that after pouring into molds I place in the refridgerator.
      Any suggestions are welcome!
