Discovered the joy of Jim Lahey’s Popeye Pie today. Oh, man. Now I just gotta work on making a rounder pizza pie. It’s good.
Trying yet another variation on chocolate chip cookies (aka “biscuits”) per this Brit-turned-Parisian café owner & cookbook writer. Couldn’t quite master her log technique but it all seemed fine when I improvised by ice-cream-scooping the batter into little handflattened discs. Next time I will sprinkle a little flaky salt on each one. Used about 1/4 bittersweet (71%) and 3/4 60% chocolate. Toasted pecans would have been nice, too.

Thanks to an intrepid friend, I have learned that there’s an outlet of Rose Bakery right here in NYC at Dover Street Market. Who knew?
East 90s ramblings: fun discoveries.
Am thinking of serving thin slices of this sephardic-style panforte at Rosh Hashanah as part of the dessert offerings. If I don’t eat it all up beforehand. Love this recipe - haven’t made in a while….this time with toasted pecans along with dried fruits that were lingering in the pantry (sour cherries, apricots, sultanas, calimyrna figs).

Love this. Only wish the cover art for US edition was as fabulous ( or the same ) as the UK one.
Also had a chance to reread this great profile on Yotam from a couple years ago: http://nyr.kr/1mkEaW7. And remember how lucky we were to have the good sense to visit his then-new NOPI restaurant during its soft opening in 2011 .
