Have yourself a porky Christmas!

16 Dec

This meat nativity photo is thanks to a blog post in the Slog.

Odd but interesting.

Just like this bacon chocolate which a colleague could not resist buying from Dave’s Fresh Pasta yesterday after staring at it for months.

Needless to say.  I am the only one who liked the salty, rather than bacony bits in it.  Could make a good (and expensive) Christmas gift for a chocolate lover.

Good thing Christians are not against pork. Merry Christmas and happy meatings!


Taste the candidates at Gargoyles

1 Nov

Gargoyles’ political cocktails:(L-R) Deval Patrick, Tim Cahill, Charlie Baker

Election season got you thirsty? Davis Square restaurant Gargoyles has come with a trio of Gubernatorial cocktails, each apparently mirroring the personalities of the governor candidates. Guests can vote for their favorite between now and Oct. 31. The winner will be announced at Gargoyles’ election night party on Nov. 2.

Well, I don’t know if I’d vote for him but the Charlie Baker sure is tasty – with a kick.

Btw, all include some kind of bitters – from espresso to orange peel. Hmmmm.

The Deval Patrick: A democratic blend of Mozart white chocolate liquor, house infused vanilla vodka, Kahlua, and a double espresso shot.

The Charlie Baker: A conservative cocktail featuring Gargoyles’ house infused gazpacho vodka, Disco Brunch’s Bloody Mary mix, and a dash of liquid smoke.

The Tim Cahill: Gargoyles’ fennel, dill, and caraway infused vodka with a dash of Grand Marnier, garnished with candied orange peel – for the independent-minded drinker.

Gargoyles also recently unveiled it’s fall menu with a special dinner boasting the best of Chef Jason Santos’ whimsical creations. My picks:  tuna ceviche in coconut lemongrass milk with fried lotus root; cumin crusted escolar with chives; duck confit with sweet cauliflower puree and a unique peanut butter crumble with a shot of homemade Concord grape soda.


Ever try a bacon cheeseburger sandwiched between doughnuts

14 Aug

I love the Globe’s fun food slide shows. This week, it’s quirky fast food items.

I thought immediately of poutine and the KFC chicken sandwich but I think the bacon cheeseburger doughnut from Krispy Kreme in their list takes the bakery. Very weird.

Food, food food – but which one?

1 Apr

There’s a weird but funny guy whose videos I subscribe too on YouTube because they are so strange. I am delighted he finally made one on food. Not that it really helps me since I am now craving all kinds of things from fish and chips and burgers to shawarma and foie gras…
