Did you like the chill chihuahua? Last night, I made it for some friends and I accidentally grabbed the bottle of triple sec instead of tequila. Wowza! And yikes. It was quite the tart and sweeeet drink. It turns out that cocktails named after dog breeds is a thing!
On Thursday, I posted a recipe for japchae. The recipe I used called for bean thread noodles, but after research, I found that sweet potato starch noodles are the actual Korean japchae noodle. This article clears most all your Asian noodle questions up!
Saturday’s post has tahini as the shining star ingredient. I use Woodstock Tahini, but evidently, I could be using several other more artisanal brands. Last year was the year of tahini. I’m hoping tahini trend will continue in 2017. I have a food scientist friend who works with companies to develop new products. I picked his brain for a bit the other day about 2017 food trends. He said peppercorns are a big thing right now paired with sweets, such as pink peppercorns with chocolate. Sounds like the new salted caramel? He also said something about a cloudberry that has the texture of yogurt on the inside? Yes please!
I’ll leave you with a few more pictures of my chill chihuahua.
