Across the table: Bananas Foster in NOLA, baby

December 15, 2009

Bananas Foster as prepared by a master at Emeril’s Delmonico from happykatie on Vimeo.

More posts to come on a foodie blogger experience in New Orleans with Harrah’s NOLA – but I wanted to share a bit of ‘at the table cooking fun’ at Emeril’s Delmonico restaurant.

Have you tried making Banana’s Foster before?  It’s really not hard at all (in fact, here is the Brennan’s Restaurant recipe – the creators of the dish – and… Alton Brown’s recipe too if you must have a variation) – but the tableside prep with FIRE is fun and .

But then again, I get excited having servers make Caesar salad and guacamole at the table (just as I love being in the kitchen watching chefs do their thing) so there’s that.  Easily amused much?  Yes.  Particularly amused by setting food on fire indoors just feet away from customers?  Double yes.

An essential part of my love and devotion to all things edible is more on a visual level than any other sensory experience.  Fresh produce is gorgeous.  Cooked dishes and baked goods are lovely.  I am FAR more likely to attempt a tricky recipe if there’s a photo accompanying it just on the fact that I like the visual throwdown (see my ‘how to create food porn’ post here).

So this recipe / photo food collective site is PERFECT in this respect – skip obsessing over the cuisine, calorie count and ingredients — sometimes you just plain want to stimulate your belly through your eyeballs.

Inedible meringue (finger candy)

November 23, 2009

Sweet tooth meets meringue-d digit.  The Meringue ring is a sight to be seen, a perfect stocking stuffer for a baking fanatic or plain ‘ole meringue fiend.
