Before I get started I need to mention the fantastic foodbuzz event I went to last night at David Burke Townhouse to celebrate the one millionth post on this rapidly rising site. The food was out of this world, both the savory and the sweet, and David Burke is such a nice guy. Let me say this 'lobster flan in an eggshell' does that paint enough of a picture? This wasnt it, but similar. My bouche was amused all night long. As I find posts I will link them - here is one by Dessert Buzz. Dessert Buzz has a one track mind and its all things sweet. She can review the reviewed and still review, Jessica at Harley Confections always finds her twist. When your name is initials then you know you are on to something and TW at Culinary Types is in on it.
Mushroom update: None, meaning there is no mushroom update. I am trying to concentrate the flavors and it is taking a while but as we wait for the results I have made pizza.
Violet jelly update: Minimal, meaning minimal. I have not done anything significant with the violet jelly yet. I cant think of anything besides a vanilla souffle and Ciao Chow Linda made a lemon souffle and I would feel like I didnt come up with an original idea. Plus my jelly came out more syrupy and purple not violet and silky.
I did drizzle some violet syrup around a pork chop and it was mighty tasty.
My kid wanted his with fries.
....and if this isnt enough - because of the jelly influences lately I made strawberry jam and syrup; more on that later.
