– You ESers has a field day with our favorite new unitasker, the bananza. debbie koenig:
I love that it’s a “hand-held” banana slicer. Obvs so much more convenient than those bulky room-sized ones.
Britannia, however, is not making fun:
I kinda want one, don’t judge.
– And kitchen geek stands up for parsley as a garnish:
Used to be right there with you on the parsley garnish; but I’ve mellowed a bit. I’m anti curly-parsley and bad parsley but I think fresh flat leaf has its place. Garnish breaks down just like ingredients in the recipe, complementing or contrasting. Your current recipe and Rocco’s example go with the complementing camp. I often use parsley and/or cilantro in dishes that have neither to provide a fresh herb contrast to whatever dish I’m serving. Think about osso bucco and tell me gremolata is out of place as a garnish cutting the richness of the dish.
Finally, flickr user arenamontanas deserves a huge round of applause for somehow providing the perfect photo for this post.
Thanks for simmering with us — see ya next week!
