Mis-adventures of the Neophyte Baker Part 3

Even though I'm not a skilled baker, I really enjoy it.  My mother bakes a lot and has since I was a child.  I don't know why her baking genes didn't get passed down to me, but as I get older, I sure wish they had.  She has cookbooks older than me with grease-stained pages […]

French Pastry Gets My Goat

Let me tell you a story of how a dented bar of goat butter started my culinary odyssey. I had never much thought about goat dairy as a food group, beyond the infrequent chunk of feta in a Greek salad or crumble of chevre on a salade composee in some gourmet ghetto.  It's probably because […]
