So it’s around 32 lbs - I’m adding the spec sheet here.

 

They have the 220V 50Hz version and it's only 310W? Very interesting!

I see they will be at the fair in Milan, so I suppose their products will be available in Italy too. Time to consider the possibility for a blast freezer for home.

Thanks for the infos!

Wow -- 32 pounds.  A baby blast freezer, my dream appliance!  If I hadn't just been to the dentist this week for two crowns and a filling.  Who needs teeth for ice cream?

 

Very unlikely I could order in 30 days for the pre-order price but I still am interested.  Do I read correctly that the dimensions are 450x507x647mm?  (Sorry, it was a little hard to see.)

 

Thanks again!  I think warmly of you every time I caress my Precise Heat Mixing Bowl.

so about the size of a microwave and 13 x 12 x 8 inside - like 0.7 cubic feet?

 

you could fit a quarter sheet, I think a half hotel pan might just fit

Tonight's dinner was at Edo Wine and Tapa's.

 

The waiter felt it necessary to explain everything to us ad nauseum. He seemed to feel I should be looking at girly drinks.

I opted for the Bitter Andy.

And @Alleguede was content with a coke.

Patates Bravas - very interesting - they slice the potatoes on a mandoline - layer them 30 slices thick - then press between two sheet pans. They bake for 50 min at 350, then cut into these pieces and deep fry. They were quite wonderful!

Pain con tomate - a pale imitation of the version we had at Jaleo.

parking for vegans - so weak from hunger they need to be close I guess

 

followed by an uber ride with a driver who bathes in cologne / I looked like a dog with my head out the window - should have just jumped out - not worth the wheeze and headache

      Host's note: the initial title of this thread was "Swarvin' in ???"  as a teaser.  Once the destination was identified as Newfoundland, the title was changed to reflect this.  The initial comments were based on the ??? In the title.
       
       
      And we'll soon be off.......culinary adventures to follow.

      Some of you may recall that in 2016 I had a blog about our trip to Newfoundland.  We are going there again tomorrow for a week, returning July 1 and I thought that since we are going to, and eating at, places different from that year, I would do another blog.  When I booked our flights and accommodations (7 places in 8 nights) last February, June 23rd seemed like a long ways away.  Yet here we are, about to leave.   I hope some of you will follow along as we travel through the province.

      As times and available resources have changed, members have started their own food/travel blogs. These are not listed in the eG Foodblogs index below. You can find them, though, by searching with the tag "foodblog". The tag search box is near the upper right corner of the Forums Main Page. It looks like this:

      In December, I spent 3 glorious weeks eating my way through Japan; Tokyo, Kanazawa, Kyoto, Sapporo, Hakodate and back to Tokyo. It was my 11th (!) trip to Japan but my mother had never been, so I thought I'd take the old girl over for a good time. We did not kill each other, surprisingly.
       
      I'll come back and caption these a little more informatively over coming weeks, but as you can see, we ate rather a lot.

      I have just returned home after four days (three nights) in Guilin. This was a business trip, so no exotic tales this time. Just food. Anyway, despite its reputation, Guilin is actually a rather dull city for the most part - anything interesting lies outside the city in the surrounding countryside.
       
      I was staying in the far east of the city away from the rip-off tourist hotels and restaurants and spent my time with local people eating in normal restaurants.
       
      I arrived in Wednesday just in time for lunch.
       
      LUNCH WEDNESDAY
       
      We started with the obligatory oil tea.
       

      Oil Tea
       

      Omelette with Chinese Chives
       

      Stir-fried Mixed Vegetables
       

      Sour Beef with Pickled Chillies
       

      Cakes*
       

      Morning Glory / Water Spinach**
       
      * I asked what the cakes were but they got rather coy when it came to details. It seems these are unique to this restaurant.
       
      ** The Chinese name is 空心菜 kōng xīn cài, which literally means 'empty heart vegetable', describing the hollow stems.
