$20,000 Coffee and Bad Fish: NY Times Dining Section
From the New York Times’ Dining Section…
• At Last, a $20,000 Cup of Coffee: The title here is misleading – really, the $20,000 is all for the machine – a new siphon bar. We are coffee geeks here, so we were delighted with this piece that compares and contrasts the old-fashioned siphon method with the new Clover. Both make a superb cup of coffee; we would be hard-pressed to choose between them. Check out our own Clover review here.
Below, MORE from the Times, including starter bottles from Napa, cabbage salad, and cheese fondue…
• Toehold in Napa: Some Starter Bottles: Under-$50 wines from Napa were mostly disappointing, but with one or two exceptions.
• A Little Nostalgia, a Long Fork and Lots of Cheese: Is fondue in the air? We just blogged chocolate fondue – the Times does cheese fondue a few different ways.
• On Martha’s Vineyard, Using Scallops as Currency: A portrait of Jan Buhrman, a cook and local forager on Martha’s Vineyard.
• Enticing Tough Cabbage to Show a Little Tenderness: Truly minimalist this week, Mark Bittman gives us a minimum of ingredients in his recipe for Cabbage Salad. It looks fresh and bright.
