Baker’s Edge is Back!

19 Jun 2007, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in food

After what seems like an eternity, Baker’s Edge brownie pans are at last back on the market in their new incarnation, which includes a non-stick coating both inside and out for easy cleaning. We’ve had so many requests the past few months, and unfortunately had to turn people away because there was not a pan to be had in America — so if you are still in the market for one of these babies, get thee to the Gilded Fork Boutique! food, baking, Edge Brownie Pan, Baker’s Edge, brownies, bakeware

What’s in a Glass?

10 Jun 2007, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in beverages

I read the news this morning that Boston Beer Co. has designed a special glass for Sam Adams Boston Lager. Long a fan of the tasty beverage, I’m intrigued by Jim Koch’s efforts to showcase it at its best. There were apparently hundreds of prototypes created and tested by sensory scientists (now there are some people I need to meet), and the final result claims to showcase the beer “just as the brewer intended.” There is an extensive description on the Samuel Adams web site which actually specifies what different sections of the glass do for the taste, i.e. “The…

FP49: The Stinking Rose

With a menu entirely devoted to garlic, there is no avoiding the delicious fragrance wafting from the restaurant as you pass by; so we didn’t pass it by, but stepped inside instead. You can see our review of The Stinking Rose Restaurant Cookbook at the Gilded Fork, so if you aren’t going to be near San Francisco anytime soon,…

Grape-Flavored Lip Gloss

05 May 2007, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in travel

Well, we’re now in wine country, so it’s off for a day of touring with Chef Mark and Rosina Tinari Wilson, our intrepid wine podcasting correspondent. I’ve easily morphed into a casual, lazy Saturday mode to prepare myself for sipping, so it should be a lovely day. The morning sun in California is unrivaled, and I always feel soothed by the cool morning air and blue skies here. The rain has disappeared just in time for us to explore Napa and Sonoma, so I’m looking forward to a wonderful day! (Yes, dammit, we’ll get audio and video.) gilded fork, food,…
