  1. Looks fantastic! Can you share the recipe? Also, what kind of hominey did you use? Thanks!

    Spot

    It’s a win all the way around for you, Kay, and Spot! Dean, I also want to mention that I’ve really enjoyed your posts about what you and Kay are cooking at home since you closed the restaurant. Since we’re all cooking at home these days, it’s been inspirational.

    Spot

    Dean, I don’t recall you mentioning Spot until recently. How did Spot come into your life? However that happened, he/she seems to have found a great home!
  4. We have bought our seafood from a company called Vital Choice for quite a few years now. They are based in the Pacific Northwest. We are pleased with the quality. We buy salmon, cod, petrale sole, and halibut from them.
  5. I can see I posted this in the wrong forum. Perhaps Don can put it in the proper forum.
  6. MrB and I watched this earlier today and it was 30 minutes well-spent on an Easter Sunday. I thought some of you might enjoy it as well.
  7. The culprit was the restaurant. They threw you under the bus because they did not manage their reservations well and valued this party more than yours.
  8. You don't say what route the train takes, but I assume it's around northern India? 1. Rain could very well be a problem, given that September is the 3rd most rainy month in New Delhi. I went to New Delhi in December, which has the lowest amount of rain. My husband, however, travels to India regularly and has been there during the rainy months and describes it as absolutely miserable. 2. You don't say where your train tour leaves from, but I would arrange for a hotel and have the hotel send a car to the airport to pick me up. 3. If it were me, I would stay at the Imperial Hotel, but given the short length of your stay, you may want to opt for something less expensive. Other DR members will probably have better suggestions. 4. I would. It makes no sense to go to the Delhi airport early. Most overseas flights depart late in the night and they don't open up security and allow you through to the part of the airport that has some amenities until late in the evening. You don't want to be stuck sitting in the pre-security area where there are virtually NO amenities. 5. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/International-Travel-Country-Information-Pages/India.html We used a private company to get our visas. It cost more money, but was a lot faster. I can't recall the name of the company, but they have an office in Foggy Bottom.
  9. I've given up trying to find pine nuts that are not from China in my local grocery stores. Wondering if anyone has a source of non-China pine nuts that can be bought online?
  10. Pat, where are you buying pine nuts...i can’t find any that aren’t from China. Even at Whole Foods.
  11. It should, but it doesn't. It's always been a mystery to me. --- Market Lunch (Kev29)
  12. Unfortunately, DC isn't a breakfast town, unlike, say San Francisco. The best breakfasts are found in fancy hotels. Personally, I've always loved the breakfasts at the St. Regis.
  13. There is an independently-owned kitchenware store near where I live. I was recently there and the salesperson and I got into a discussion about All-Clad cookware. (My kitchen has housed a large contingent of All-Clad for at least 20 years, if not more.) She claimed that the quality of All-Clad has seriously declined and they are now selling a brand called American Clad, which she claimed was vastly superior to the current iteration of All-Clad. I'd be interested in any thoughts you all have about this.
  14. I take your point, Eric. However, funkyfood has a sample size of one. I have a sample size of at least 12. And I can tell you that the age range at the bar is all over the map. It is not just old people. I have been there with my 20-something daughters and I have seen many other young people there.
