eG Foodblogs: Coming Attractions

Recommended Posts

The next eG Foodblog will begin Wednesday, 10 May and run through Tuesday, 16 May. This installment will be brought to us by not one, not two, but three bloggers. They are all fired up and ready to show some hot stuff. After a week without a foodblog, I’m sure some of you faithful viewers were ready to light a fire under somebody. Well, not to worry. Tune in. We are back, and we are smokin’ . . . !

Smokin', huh? Makes me think of Snowangel and her beloved smoker... and those asparagus also look mighty familiar... I think I saw them on the Dinner! thread recently.

Well Megan, it turns out you were "warm" in looking for the triple bloggers' identity, so I guess we're going to have to make it a little more difficult to figure out next time. Next time is coming soon!

The current blog will continue through Tuesday, 16 May, midnight of each blogger's time zone. I'll keep it open until the next morning, Wednesday, so that traditional ending remarks can be posted.

On Thursday, 18 May 2006, the next eG foodblog begins. This blogger has something in common with Marlene. No, this person is not a Princess; but like Marlene, this person lives outside of the United States.

Some of the words you will see in the upcoming foodblog are convection, power, and luau. Some of the photos you will see are of wine, a range, and if we're lucky, some eGulleteers. This member will be dining out, and having company in, and sharing the exciting experiences with us up through Wednesday, 24 May.

Hmmm.... At first I guessed another Canuck but what can those of us from the frozen north have to do with a luau? So now I am really stumped. :smile: Could it be someone from outside the Continental United States? :wink:

Well, those are all BC wines.

This time, a couple of you were warm, and figured out the Canadian part. You were sort of in the neighborhood!

Now Deborah's foodblog is winding down, and the coming attractions are coming soon! The blogger who was scheduled next had to cancel, and we did some rearranging, so we'll soon be announcing the next hints. Stay tuned.

Do you know what this is? That is the question, but it is only one question. Do you know what it has to do with food?

These are only a glimpse of things to come. The upcoming foodblogger will be asking you a lot of questions! . . .Maybe even some food trivia.

If you know these answers, then you probably know what our next blogger does for a living.

Good luck with your guesses, now, and starting this Sunday, 28 May.

Warm Scallop and Shrimp Salad, “Scarfed”

(from same place that features some great live music)

. . . All this and more, in the next eG Foodblog you will find out why this salad is referred to as scarfed.

Our next blogger will explore the culinary possibilities of a new neighborhood and provide fascinating snapshots. The blogger also as a new health regimen, and will show that it is possible to follow such a regimen while continuing to please one’s inner foodie. It’s likely that there will be music at a picnic, as well as with the meals at home and the dining out. It will surprise me if there isn’t good humor also included.

Therese’s foodblog will conclude this Saturday night, the 3rd of June. The next one begins a week from today, the 6th. You have two days in between them to try to figure out the identity of the next blogger!

The blogger has been guessed correctly, for the first time since this topic was started. You guys are good. Or maybe, it is more like I gave it away. I won't be so generous in giving hints from now on!

So instead of wondering and guessing, you all can look forward to mizducky's sequel, and in the meantime, in addition to enjoying therese's foodblog, you can take a look at mizducky's previous blog.

I gave it away last time, so this time. . .

The next eG foodblog begins Tuesday, the 13th. The blogger is male and young. That's all I'm sayin'.

Coming Soon: One teaser photo, not three.

Any questions?

You say "eG, young and male," and I think BryanZ.

It turns out it's two pictures in one image! You know a picture speaks a thousand words, so this time really, that's all I'm sayin'. :laugh:

Isn't BryanZ the gourmet kid down at Duke?

The image on the right looks like it could qualify, but the image on the left looks just a bit down-homey with all that white bread.

Still, he's my guess.

But Sandy, there's no cornichon foam in the photo on the left. No syringe in the background on the right.

Here's a guess. Chiantiglace, he's at CIA now and worked in kitchens at home before. He's from North Carolina, so maybe that would explain the barbeque in the picture

Not a clue...but I will say that the bbq looks to be takeout - there is a plastic bag, styro bowl and plastic spoon in the pic, and it's on what appears to be a sheet of butcher paper.

that's definitely not NC BBQ, it's not pork! It looks like brisket...then when you add the white bread and pickles...I say it's Texas or Kansas City.

Our foodblogging travels a couple of states away for the next eG foodblog, but I will not tell you in what direction.

I will tell you a few “nots” about this blog. The direction traveled from tupac’s state of Texas is not southward. ( :biggrin: ) The foodblog will not take place in a large city, and the blogger does not have at his or her disposal many ingredients to which people in major cities have access. And for this foodblog, we're not just talking land travel.

Tupac’s foodblog will conclude in the wee hours of Tuesday morning, 20 June, and remain open for comments until Tuesday afternoon. The next blog will run Tuesday morning through Sunday night.

That's all the hints for now. A photo will come later. After all, these have come to be known as the teaser posts, right?

      After ...
      ... I headed to the airport and flew Nanning, China to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam. The meal on board the plane is here.
       
      We landed two hours later and after the usual immigration nonsense  I was met by an old friend and her husband. They had helped me book me a hotel and took me there. The couple are Chinese but live and work in HCMC. They dropped me off at the hotel, made sure I was settled in and took off to attend to some business (they work in the jewellery business, importing and exporting between China and Vietnam), but returned in the evening to take me to dinner.
       
      We went here.
       

       
      The place,  Làng Nướng Nam Bộ,  is huge and, on a Friday evening was packed. My friends ordered - they both speak fluent Vietnamese whereas mine is limited to the basics. I just looked around.
       

       

       

       
      Each table was supplied with
       

      Tissues and two dips. One was fish sauce and the other seemed to be shrimp paste with sesame.
       
      and
       

      A bag of crackers, some pickled gherkins or similar and a dip of salt and chilli
       

      Steamed Chicken with Banana Hearts
       

      Vietnamese Fried Spring Rolls - accompanied by a mixed selection of raw greens, which are served with almost everything.
       

      Grilled Venison with Grilled Okra
       

      Hotpot protein - squid, shrimp, clams, beef
       

      Hotpot Vegetables - including both banana hearts and shoots.
       
      Everything was good. Especially the venison. I hadn't expected okra, but it seems to be popular. Every market I visited had some, but I'm getting ahead of myself. More to come.

      Hi everybody! I'm Jake, I'm 26 and from the United Kingdom. I've recently left a career in science teaching and I really hope to pursue my true passion, food writing by becoming either a recipe developer, a food journalist, or both! I've launched my website today so thought it was a good time to get active in some online forums and say hello! I look forward to meeting and interacting with you all ❤️

      Hello again from south of the equator!  As you may or may not have heard (because the international news media isn't really giving the situation much coverage), Ecuador is in the grip of a major social protest movement.  This started on October 1, when fuel subsidies in the country were abruptly struck causing the prices of gasoline and diesel to more than double overnight.  Transport and heavy haulage unions immediately went on strike, and blocked the main roads of the cities with their vehicles in protest.  The indigenous movements of the central Sierra, beginning in my province, Tungurahua, joined the strike on October 2, and the President quickly declared a State of Emergency that restricts movement, freedom of the press, and freedom association.  The indigenous took over the road blockades on October 3, cutting the cities off from the world; Ambato became an island overnight.
       
      It is now October 8, one week into the blockades.  Shortages in the fresh markets and supermarkets began on Sunday, as people realized that we were in for a long-haul of protest and possibly an overthrow of the sitting government.  Ecuador's indigenous have a long history of deposing governments in this way, and it's not a fast process.
       
      I'll be blogging informally throughout the National Strike, to document how the inevitable food shortages affect the city and my own table. 
       
      These first pictures are from Sunday, October 6.  In the Mercado Mayorista, a place I've always taken you along to when I've blogged from Ambato, the cement floors of the naves are visible in places where they have never, in my experience, been exposed.  The fresh corn nave is all but abandoned - this is because all of the corn in the city's stock has been sold.  I'll remind you: a nave in this market is about a thousand square metres of space.  This is also missing the big trucks that come to trade fresh grains in the parking lot, because they couldn't make it through the roadblocks.  Most of the Mayorista is in the same situation - stocks are selling off fast.

       
      The supermarkets are even more dire.  The meat coolers are completely empty, and the produce shelves are diminishing quickly.

      @Alleguede and I are in the lounge at Pearson awaiting our flight to Vegas for the IBIE (International Baking Industry Exhibition).
       
      I got the usually bomb sniffing swab done on my electronics - @Alleguede got the 3rd degree at customs. Anyone know what a carnet is? I believe I got that lecture the last time.
       

       
      Made myself a little cocktail, Maker's Mark, Grand Marnier, vintage port. I've had better! 
       

       
      Not a lot of choices to eat since it's rather late (not that earlier would have helped) - they also have pasta salad, Italian Wedding soup, Cream of mushroom soup, corn chips and salsa. There appear to be some cookies there as well. I'm trying to low carb as much as possible so I'm avoiding most of it.

      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.
