Dammit. And damn one-click ordering, while I'm at it.

 

Yes.  I succumbed to Gjelina, Roots and the Joe Beef book - I may never try them at the restaurant, but I can't resist reading about the Foie Gras Breakfast Sandwich or Pork Fish Sticks xD

 

Edited to add this slightly off-topic comment:  In the case of Roots, I've been curious about it ever since reading Bryant Gumbel's Piglet review of the book on Food52.  A quote:

Quote

Morgan's recipe for Chioggia Beet Carpaccio for example, produces a dish that while very good and attractive, asks the reader to fry cheese -- a challenge for even accomplished home cooks. Further, it asks for beets sliced to a thinness matching the depth of Ann Coulter's intellect, a task I found near impossible.

No. No. No.  I cannot bring myself to read one more page of Beautiful Breads etc. etc.   "Real mint sauce", meant to be served with lamb, made with a can of condensed milk?

Red Meat is not an issue for me , except that Memorable Beef is very hard to find , at any price.

Holiday cookbooks on sale. Aimed at the fans of Southern Cooking and the ilk (yes, including tons of Paula Deen cookbooks):

"Hoffman Media Store Holiday sale"

Hmmm...I just noticed that the prices are quite a bit cheaper through my link than if you went through the company website yourself and found the Holiday section on your own. Enjoy the lower prices, folks and yer welcome. xD

I do not have any of these books so I cannot testify as to their quality. Just thought I would pass the sale along.

 Perhaps we should task Melissa with setting up and administering a support group. We could call it the CIA. Cookbook Inhalers Anonymous.  She might be able to register it as a charity and even apply for government grants.   Much stranger things have happened.  

I think Anna would be better suited to the task. After all, she doesn't need to take time out of her day to work!

well   .....

 

this is not OT

 

but a short Aside :

 

Why to the Anglicans across the Pond  have such an infatuation with Hats for the Girls ?

 

the Sombrero above must have cost  , bespoke , 4,782 Pounds ?  No ?

 

I think EIIR might just requisition a Wagyii Steak  ( 4 " please )  or some Cauliflower  naped in a white cheese sauce.

 

this is popular now :

another short aside : Joe Beef :

 

Mind of a Chef   season 1 ep Noodle   ( 2012 )  had David Chang at Joe Beef.

 

I can't tell you have to find this

 

but its worth the work if you can't go to JB and eat,

One of Bourdain's things was there I think.  I think it was the series before the current (boring) one on CNN. He got shitfaced with JoeBeef people IIRC.

 

Yes. I watched it.

 

Edited it add: It's the new show, "Parts Unknown." Season 1, Episode 4, "Quebec."

VItacost is currently offering 20% off a $50 food order — with free shipping — as they do occasionally.

This is by far the best deal I've found on Red Boat Fish Sauce and a few other things.

A friendly heads-up — according to Target's Black Friday preview, they'll have the Anova Bluetooth on sale for just $99.00.

@blue_dolphin Thank you for the heads-up on Penzey's. My DW had noticed the post on the computer screen and so we went to the Anaheim store today, and in addition to the gift sets, we picked up some smoked paprika and some bay leaves. I think something else but I don't feel like retrieving the bag from the car right now. The gift box display was not signed for the sale but when I inquired they said yes, they were on sale.

 

ETA: Went out to the car. Also picked up whole nutmeg, air-dried shallots and ground Ancho Chili Pepper.

I just received an email from Anova about their early black Friday sale which had a promo code for a Bluetooth unit.  With the code, it brings the price down from $129 to $99.  Offer valid through Nov 19.  I just used it to get a second one (technically a third one, but I gave one of mine away to a friend last year).  Promo code is: anova2-5a497cc6  Not sure if the code is re-usable, but worth a try and you don't have to deal with the crowds at Target on black Friday.

Probably not reusable. I got the email also, but my code is different.
