Sorry we’ve been MIA. We have a million excuses, but instead of making them we’ll just offer you this foolproof recipe for a bourbon slush – the perfect grownup beverage to kick off summer. I love how incredibly detailed the photos are – I suspect the person who put together this post assumed that anyone making these had perhaps arrived at the site already drunk…

The horse meat scandal

by rebecca on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 - 6:29 pm

in Europe, food safety, scandals

We haven’t been quite sure what to say about the growing horse meat scandal in Europe. We didn’t actually start getting mail asking us when we were going to post about it until IKEA announced that they’d found horse meat in their meatballs. (They have since announced a recall, according to the New York Times). Oh people, we know where your priorities are.

Pre-IKEA, the Daily Show did a segment that summed things up pretty well:

She just shared her adaptation of the classic Moroccan Lamb with Rice to get you thinking about Spring.

Dog Wheels

February 17, 2013 7:06 pm by rebecca books

Reading Bonnie Benwick’s Washington Post review of “Consider the Fork: The History of How We Cook and Eat” by Bee Wilson, we were stopped short by this: If only they knew about the technical advancement of, say, the rotisserie, perhaps those folks would appreciate their place in the culinary continuum. The medieval English, in spite […]

Meat Week (or, You aren’t a damned carnivore).

February 10, 2013 8:00 am by rebecca anthropology

Meat Week is a fun and harmless celebration of bbq. We have nothing against Meat Week or restaurants who serve meat and we tweeted about DC Meat Week but we never got around to blogging about it for a few reasons. Mostly, it was because we were just too busy and one of us (who […]

Robert Burns Day

January 25, 2013 9:03 am by rebecca assorted meats

Tshirt from the Caledonian Kitchen store. Friday, January 25th is Robert Burns birthday, which Haggis and whiskey lovers know as Burns Night. We posted about Burns Night a few years ago, when deliberations began anew (and ultimately stalled) to legalize importation of haggis containing lungs into the U.S. That post is worth revisiting, especially for […]
