I'm reading a book right now which takes place in a Shandong village, and one food item mentioned that I've never heard of is referred to as "Fistcakes." These are flatbreads, stuffed with eggs and green onions, then rolled up and eaten with both fists - hence, the name "Fistcakes." I don't even know if these are real food items, since the book is a work of fiction, but still, they sound wonderful. gnatharobed, or anyone else familiar with regional Chinese peasant cuisine, do you have any familiarity with these?
Interesting about Seasons 52. A quick look at their website reveals low-calorie meals but salt contents equivalent to dining at McDonalds. 1700 Mgs of salt in a 10 oz. vegetable soup, for example, vs 1000 for my junk fix of choice, a Big Mac (though I usually add more salt). 1100 for a filet mignon vs. 1120 for a 10-piece McNuggets. If you can't use fat, you've gotta torque the taste up somehow. The real originator of this stuff, though, of course, is Michel Guerard who won three Michelin stars with his famous cuisine minceur in the French spa town or Eugenie les Bains. Sadly, the English-language site has even less info than the French page -- you can find it if you click around -- the the French page does have pictures of what I want to eat next time I try to drop 10 pounds. Edit: Oh wait, is this off topic?
Does anyone know anything about this place? I'd never heard of it and it was on a short list of places sent by VA-based friends from which we're supposed to choose for a dinner out we're planning in a few weeks. Seems like it has been around awhile, though how long exactly I can't tell. Novel concept, thought can't tell if more odd than interesting. Some mixed reviews on the generally-unhelpful Yelp, virtually no mention on Chowhound and doesn't seem to be in Don's Dining Guide or have a thread? And, they just announced an expansion into Maryland! Huh? Hmmm... Worth trying or stay away? Anyone? Thank you.
