Re: Suze liqueur

Thanks BillBuitenhuys! I went to Top's today and they didn't have it but will check with their distributors. I also found some other things so it was a great trip. If they don't come through with the Suze I will look into KL shipping, great tip!

Suze liqueur

Does anyone know where I can get buy a bottle of Suze Liqueur in Phoenix? My online searches are not coming up with anything. Of course K&L wines in CA have it, but they have everything! Why don't we have a K&L????

Re: Selecting a Gas Cooktop

I love my Blue Star! I only have 4 burners, but you can customize it like crazy. If you like wok cooking, the inner ring comes out and the wok sits right on the flame. I don't think I use the high BTU's to their full capacity, but I can say cooking on other gas stoves seem slow...

Re: FnB - discuss

bharbeke - I had the same issue especially since they are quite far from me. Rolling the dice was dicey. :D However, if you follow the restaurant or Pavle, or both!, on Instagram they often post the menus. And many times they post a picture of the dishes. And while the menu item in words may sound o...

Re: Hayden Flour Mills

I wanted to share how much fun I had today at Hayden Flour Mills grain class and I knew that you were the people to share it with! Could I have made delicious grain salads just by looking up recipes and playing around with them, absolutely! However, I would have missed out on visiting with someone s...

Re: Pizza Sauce

I'm sure any home made marina will be divine! I go super simple and open a can of Bianco's crushed tomatoes and just add a little salt and pepper. Sometimes if I'm feeling crazy I do some garlic. We have a pizza oven in our backyard so we host many pizza parties and people always ask about the sauce...

Re: Iced Tea Favorites?

Souvia on 7th Street is the place you need to go. They have tons of different teas, and they are super helpful. They will let you smell as many as you would like and can recommend different varieties based on what you like. Also, you can cold brew tea just by placing it in water overnight and then s...

Re: Chestnut Fine Foods & Provisions Opening

Yeah, the old place across the street -- where Carmel's Coffee is now -- was really delicious, if a little overpriced. The new incarnation looks somewhat more ambitious. It's being operated by the parents of one my my kid's classmates, and I understand they bought the branding/recipes/etc. from the...

Re: Phoenix Public Market Cafe

I agree, the menu could be beefed up but I love the space and water. Recently I made a meal out of the fries and the Mo Salad to keep it healthy. The salad was very good, but seemed a bit pricey for the amount. If I hadn't had the fries I would have been hungry again soon. The fries are the same as ...

Re: Gertrude's at Desert Botanical Garden

The Sonoran dog was also calling my name. And I answered. It was delicious, I agree the bun wasn't as good as it could be. Maybe I'm used to Short Leash's yummy naan bread? But what I really want to know about is what is up with those fries? Are they supposed to be chewy? Maybe just a twice fry is n...

Re: Reuben? Pizza similar to LJ's?

Windsor's is fantastic! Chunks of pastrami instead of sliced, and a great bun. (not rye, but you won't miss it) And for the side get the mac and cheese, also delicious.

Re: Food Trucks: Your favorite bite?

Short Leash's special dog on Saturday was sooo tasty. The Biscuit had fried green tomatoes, bacon, blue cheese dressing and lettuce. I had it with the chicken dog. I may have scared the people next to me because I was moaning the whole time I was eating it. Brad if you are listening, this one should...

Re: Best soft pretzel?

MJ's pretzel at Tammi Coe is my favorite. Soft and chewy with a malty flavor that is so delicious. I wish he made them into rolls; my turkey always falls through the holes! My husband prefers the ones at Old Heidelberg. He says they are more authentic. But I think they are too fluffy; they don't hav...

Re: BURGER!

Wow, that is an impressive list! If you want to add another, I think the burger at St Francis is in a dead heat with Gallo Blanco's. Go during happy hour when it is almost half price.

And while I thank you for the great pictures and descriptions, my waist line will not. :twisted:

Re: Vovomeena

I also ordered the mexican benedict (before I saw your review) and I agree. It was the "wrong" thing to order. The sope is a horrible base for this dish. Just looking at the menu, maybe the johnny cakes might be a better base? Mine didn't even look as good as yours, it was watery, like they didn't '...

Re: Homemade burrata?

I'm sorry I can't help with the burrata question, but I am curious about your successful mozz technique. I've made it successfully from curd (which I can't find anymore), but my one attempt from milk was not good at all. What milk did you use? Any tips you can share? Thanks!

Re: Food Saver

Sealing on the side works. I make small packets of almonds to keep in my purse. I cut the bags vertically and can get 2 or 3 packs out of about 3-4 inches of bag length.

daily menu changes

I love that some restaurants change their menus or specials often, but would like to know what they are before I go. For some I live a bit far away (Baratin, Noca) and only want to go if there is something new or sounds good. (I'm sure it is all delicious, but I want to be in the mood too.) For some...
