Food writer’s log of local food seen during for the last part of May, first part of June 2012:
- Chef Harrison Keevil from Brookville Restaurant gets pastry kudos from The Daily Meal for his Spicy Raspberry Jelly & Cinnamon Sugar doughnuts. Yum!
- Have you been keeping up with Tomas Rahal’s MAS missives while he’s been touring Tuscany and Barcelona the past few weeks? If not, you’re missing out. His tapas photos from Tickets, Albert Adria’s place, and his musings on the Tuscan countryside will make you want to slap him silly with jealousy when he gets back. Seriously dude, you’re killing me!
- Megan Headley gets Cville chefs to reveal their deepest, darkest junk food addictions. Reminded me of when I asked Mr. Bourdain this very question during his visit here. His “Popeye’s mac and cheese” answer was appropriately embarrassing and delicious. Mr. Ripert’s response of “chorizo” was not. As for me? I’d go with Sweet Thai Chili Doritos and Cheerwine. Not together mind you. ‘Cause that would be disgusting.
- The Charlottesville 29 was kind enough to ask me for my Five Friday Food Finds – while I was with The Hubby in Barcelona sans computer (oh yeah, whole other post on Barcelona yummies up soon). It was all I could do to get the visions of tapas from dancing in my head and come up with a “Comfort Food” theme to send. I blame Spain. Cause their food is so damn comforting.
