Apologies, apologies, readers. I fully intended to post about how to make mayonnaise today, to follow up Phil’s post from yesterday. Unfortunately, I’m at home in Berkeley, and our family’s computer is almost 10 years old, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to upload the photos. And I have been trying for half an hour. And it is incredibly sunny outside.
So, even though I made a delicious meyer lemon aioli last night, you may have to wait til next week for the recipe (because we all know everything is better with photos, right?). In the meantime, I have a post coming about my trip to Portland (where I was this past weekend), with photos already uploaded, that I’ll put up in the next day or two.
And in the immediate meantime, a really good op-ed by Dan Barber, the chef at Blue Hill in New York and Blue Hill at Stone Barns upstate. This is the best piece I’ve read about how the rising prices of food may in fact have a really positive effect on the way Americans view our food industry, along with some proactive suggestions.
