Food and Drank all in one

Bread making has long been a skill I wish I had. Usually it seems to require one too many skills or ingredients or just a lot more patience than I possess. Not so with beer bread. The bread, as I made it, requires only three real ingredients: 12 ounces of beer, self rising flour, and…

Kyle’s Kitchen: Smoking out TMW

Last Friday, The Mac Weekly had a smoke-filled night that can be traced back to a batch of amazing meatballs. Headline puns aside, this is an important public service announcement about smoke in the kitchen. I’ll tell the story and follow up with some tips for a smoky kitchen. The Mac Weekly had a Garden…

LTBC: Where we should have started

We realized that we’ve actually written this weekly column for the whole semester to ostensibly advocate for beer. We’ve maybe failed, though, to actually educate you about beer itself rather than our own shortcomings and buzzed revelry. So, a lesson in beer. Lucy considers herself to be something of an amateur scientist. Taryn considers Lucy…

LTBC: Tracing enjoyment of beer through math

“They don’t like the hoppiness, which, to me, speaks to their character.” As LTBC has grown and changed (a reference to Taryn’s 7th grade science “Growing and Changing” unit, what could that have been about?), we have gotten lazier and lazier. The closer the bar, the more appealing it now is. Additionally, as our vault…

Dippy eggs? A user’s guide to runny yolks

In Pittsburgh, people call them “dippy eggs.” It’s a great name for eggs with runny yolks because it makes the eater’s intention very clear: I want my toast and potatoes soaked in that delicious, golden richness. If you’re like my father, that probably sounds disgusting to you; but if you’re like me it will probably…

Food for thought: Fusion vs. Cultural Appropriation

“LUNG SHAN RESTAURANT FOOD TO GO FREE DELIVERY” the yellow awning above the forbidding barred windows said. There was a youngish blonde man standing outside in a t-shirt and dark jeans, nonchalantly smoking a cigarette. This run-down Chinese takeout was apparently the place I was looking for: Mission Chinese Food, a vague name that’s fitting…

Lucy and Taryn’s Beer Club: Beautiful beer flights

Lucy and Taryn ordered two flights of beers at their hometown favorite, the Groveland Tap. Instead of narrating, this week, they are letting their conversation speak for itself. (It’s literally transcribed from a recording. Thanks, Ethnographic Interviewing!) L: This one is the British Invasion, which tastes slightly smoky, à la the jalapeño beer that we…
