Work or Pleasure?

Or how about a lot of both.

How to get eggshell out of your yolk

Seeing how you're here reading this site, I'm going to presume you've cracked a few eggs in your life.  And that you know that even the best of us sometimes accidentally break a piece of shell into the mixture.  You also know that that little piece is excellent at eluding your digging fork or fingers.

Here's a little tip of the day!  The trick is to use another piece of shell to scoop it out.  The shell contains calcium carbonate, which gives it the sharpness to easily pierce through the slimy protein liquid.

No shells in this egg, baby.

Serendipitous Pairings (plus: Hediard Macaron Giveaway)

Taste Magazine was so kind as to feature Gastronommy again, this time for their February issue... "inspiring couples", serendipitous pairings and some such!  (See past coverage in Taste here)

Thanks again for the interview. You might recognize some other familiar faces in the feature, such as the super hot, super cool Fitness blogger, Fay Hokulani with her other half, Charles James Wright of Johnnie Walker Malaysia.  In fact, both of the other couples (I'Ling Noela Yee and Ben David Sorum of Hyde & Seek, Bangkok), are all pretty stunning -- I'm going to finish this ice cream sandwich here in my hand while I envy their perfect physiques.

If you want to join me in this indulgence-fest, Taste is having a giveaway, a box of 8 macarons from the French fine food boutique, H├ędiard Paris.  Check out page 26 of their e-magazine for more details.  The contest ends at 3pm on 8 February.  That's this Friday, so get on it!

Incredible India [video]

I can't say I've ever had the pleasure of visiting India before.  Here's a rather stunning video that captures what it's like going on an eating trail in India.


This short film compiles three weeks of filming, traveling and eating in India into "one day".
