New Fave Foodie Blog: The Foodinista


With herculean effort I restrain myself from posting fashion-related items as I know you, dear readers, come to gkid with thoughts of fast family meals more than how to, say, remove a temperanillo stain from a veronique branquino dress shirt (a quick application of soda water does the trick, as does a shout stain stick, tho that's the less eco option; moral of the story: wear an apron and/or stick to prosecco, cava, and/or gin and tonics and other nearly white drinks while cooking and wearing nice clothes; I take super chef-restaurateur Nancy Silverton of La Brea Bakery, Campanile, and Pizzeria and Osteria Mozza fame as my sartorial cooking inspiration.

So, style-obsessed, food-obsessed readers, I suggest you check in regularly with The Foodinista, as she's on the pulse and on the pulse button (of, i'm guessing a chromed-out cuisinart or some other equally blingy and functional food processor). I haven't been to Spain for a few years, but she has and recently returned as invigorated as I was, so see what she has to say about this more than sporty spice at   Eagle eye readers take note of the Heath tile in the background of her photo, which I pinched from her site. Also note that she's talking about the "dulce" not "picante" version of pimenton de la vera. The dulce is "sweet" thus less likely to blow out the tastebuds of tender palates…
