re: Frozen 2 liter bottles in a crawfish boil - BlackenedOut
Good news about crawfish is I havent heard any of the normal bs that leads to high prices. But of course not holding breath prices will be low. Re the hose, I find it works best if I spray it in almost mist or rain shower setting. Same thing wth lowering pool temp. The air helps cool the water b...

re: Frozen 2 liter bottles in a crawfish boil - BlackenedOut
I cant comment on the boil worthiness of a two liter, however if you go to a restaurant supply store, they sell these things that look like large plungers. You fill it with water, freeze it, and then can drop it into soups or a crawfish boil, where it will help quickly chill the dish. Granted, I...

re: FDB Gardeners: planting fruit trees - BlackenedOut
Love my citrus trees but getting a lot of enjoyment out of some Arbequina olive trees. Now they dont produce much fruit ( unless we get a very cold winter) but they grow well and I love their leaves. But I am in New Orleans so if you are a few clicks north, you might have more fruit. So maybe ...

re: Josephine Estelle - BlackenedOut
I love the Ace in Manhattan. Cool hotel that has fantastic f&b. Andy and Michael are tremendous cooks and have no doubt this spot will do well, save for fact that at some point restaurant growth in New Orleans is going to come to a halt....

re: For those with pizza steels... - BlackenedOut
I am getting more comfortable with baker's percentages, but the reason I remember Lahey's isnt due to cheating. Its because for about 18 months I had it written on a post it not on my computer and used to look at it a lot. ...

re: For those with pizza steels... - BlackenedOut
Yes. 45 minutes at a steady 550, then 10 minutes prior to go time full broil. I use the Lahey no knead recipe pizza dough recipe. Its probably googleable but I recall it being something like 500 grams flour, 350 grams water, 2 grams yeast, 17 grams salt. Hungryone, probably has it tattooe...

re: For those with pizza steels... - BlackenedOut
I think 6-8 inches below the broiling implement is the sweet spot. And Neauxla, preheat the steel for 45 minutes at 550, not preheat your oven with your steel in it for 45 minutes. 2 very different methods...

re: What are some quality tasting menus in NOLA-BR region? - BlackenedOut
Again, a tasting menu can be awesome thing. But I cant think of one place that does a truly blind tasting either in BR or NO or most other locales or restaurants that have tasting menus. In fact, having a menu is better because you can imagine what the dish might be and usually it is vastly diffe...

re: What are some quality tasting menus in NOLA-BR region? - BlackenedOut
What is the benefit of a blind tasting? I think most places doing elaborate, 10, 15, 20 course meals give you a menu or at least a list of dishes. A blind tasting is a figment of the dining imagination. It really only exists if you walk into a restaurant and just say, "Bring me food until I say ...

If you are in Virgin Gorda, try to run up to Anegada for the day at least once. Totally different island structure. I dont want to get in the weeds about geology (because I will misspeak), but basically most islands are a result of volcanic or tectonic plate collision. Anegada is made up entirely fr...
