Once again, Mardi Gras is right around the corner, and, as with most other things, my first thoughts revolve around food.Because Mardi Gras is nearly synonymous with Louisiana (at least in the United States), I thought I’d explore a uniquely Louisianian dish and uncover the history of jambalaya.. I’m not a big drinker.Perhaps because of this, I’m also not a huge partier.

If all this sounds too good to be true, well…honestly, aquafaba can be a little finicky. Very few people have succeeded in making angel food cake with it, and even tried-and-true aquafaba meringues and mayo sometimes collapse or fail to come together.. Straining it through fine mesh, as previously mentioned, and making sure it’s just thick enough to resemble egg whites will help (gross as ...

Yeah, I'm poor too. Knowing the limit on wine tipping is around the $500 mark is good advice for when I make my first million, I guess. But seriously, sometimes I get a (much) less expensive bottle, and I never really know if I'm supposed to tip on it or not, so I usually err on the side of being nice to the wait-staff.

Brittan prefers to tear his hair out than let his grapes ripen longer. In the 1970s, he says, winemakers relied on a device called the refractometer that gave a rudimentary assessment of the sugar content of grapes—measured in degrees Brix—to tell them when to pick. That method was rejected in the 1980s as formulaic picking “by the numbers”; winemakers learned that sugar levels are not ...

Bundaberg<Cock and Bull=Reed's<Blenheims. Blenheims is incredibly spicy and dominates the Dark and Stormy. Cock and Bull is good as is Reed's, but Reed's Extra is decently spicy as well. Gosling's is a very, very smooth and sugary rum, so if you mix with Bundaberg which has a nice mellow ginger flavor, I would go with half a lemon or lime.

Oregon is getting it right. The state’s Pinot Gris tends away from the floral perfume and toward pear and melon, knit together with an underlying mineral note and refreshing acidity. 2006 was a pleasantly ripe (not overripe—just right) year for Oregon, and the wines are lush and pleasant. 2007 was far cooler, so the wines are a little sharper and more structured.

The consistency of your scrambled eggs is a personal preference, though it seems like the majority of breakfast connoisseurs enjoy a more runny and fluffy option. In this case, add about ¼ cup of milk for every four eggs. This will help to thin the mix. Feel free to also season with salt and pepper (or stir in cream cheese for added decadence).

Wright’s liquid smoke was marketed as a quicker and cheaper alternative to the painstaking process of actually smoking meat—which is both an art and a science—in order to make it last longer.

I biked home the other morning from the farmers’ market carefully transporting a $10 carton of freshly laid farm eggs.

Consider an austere beauty like H. Billiot Fils Rosé, which is a “grower” Champagne (i.e., it’s made by the same people who grow the grapes) from the village of Ambonnay.
