I’m pleased to introduce a new food and wine blog to the web. My dining companion has started writing about the restaurants we visit, the wines we drink, the products we love, and her experiences as devotee of the good life in Montreal. I look forward to her lessons in leisure, and invite you all to follow along.
I’ve added her new site to the blogroll, along with a few other food sites I’ve been reading. I’m loving Carol’s The French Laundry at Home. She’s cooking her way through Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry Cookbook. When I complain about convoluted and arduous recipes in The Book, I just think of poor Carol.
I get a real kick out of gamecakes‘ pictures of video-game themed confections. High-tech gadgets are designed to look edible, and this takes it to the logical conclusion.
So, what else should I be following along with? I’m always interested in great food blogs, particularly people doing similar projects to mine. If there’s something I should check out, by all means let me know in the comments.
And now for a minor update on the state of The Project. The most recent recipe posted was #113. This summer I challenged myself to write 60 posts in 60 days, and get #113 posted by September 14th. I failed miserably in that challenge, my two month project took three-and-a-half. I’ve been pretty good about keeping a steady ground-eating pace to my write-ups though. I’m catching up on my backlog, and I’m happy to say I’m only 32 recipes behind. The day that I have to go to the kitchen and cook something before I can write my next review is within sight.
