peppercorns (baies roses de Bourbon) and tomato concasse. So what’s with the title? Pink peppercorns come from the Brazilian Pepper tree which is in the cashew and mango family (yes, they’re related) – and also includes poison ivy and poison oak. My own take on steak and eggs – grilled skirt steak (marinated in dark […]
So Pho Dai Loi #2 did me proud on Wednesday. Sorry if you missed it. Lots of pork, beef, cha gio and great conversation. We’ll do another one soon (I promise to give more notice this time). I’m thinking Malaysian – perhaps Penang (I know it’s a chain, but they do a pretty good job).
I held off posting this for a while, but what the hell. You know, I really don’t care for hot dogs that much. As a kid, I despised them. You couldn’t force me to eat a hot dog and I can promise you, it had nothing to do with any of the stereotypical reasons you […]

Originally developed as a way to cook leftover meats, the sauce tends to be drier than other curries. I’m not posting a recipe, as a […]
I ascribe to a theory of infinite distraction – better to obsess over a lot of things rather than just one (even though food is predominant at the moment). To that end, nothing about food… but two big things did happen today: Tom Waits (http://tomwaits.com/) announced July 5 at The Fox Theatre in Atlanta will […]
