and Mother Effer-vescent. You can taste a samples prior to deciding. I went for the Blue Eyed Devil and my wife couldn’t resist the Plum Espalier. The drafts were excellent. We traded sips while congratulating each other on our choices, and blew another 10 minutes before strolling over to where Brendan and his crew were cranking out the chow. Another mistake. A chalk signboard gave the three items available. Wait a minute … three? Brisket, jalapeño sausage, mac ‘n’ cheese … and a freshly wiped space where I was sure the wagyu meatballs should be. “We sold out of the meatballs,” said the smiling woman taking orders. I found out later she was Hurtado’s mother. “Already?” I whined. “I know, “ she smiled, sadly. “They are really good.” Well, hell. We ordered up one of each remaining. Not a mistake. The prime brisket taco was melt-in-your-mouth tender, cradled in one of Hurtado’s … [Read more...] about Wagyu Balls at Division?

NICE TRY -- “Anti-Trump forces contemplate the end: After a week of bruising losses, many are ready to give up the fight,” by Alex Isenstadt, with Katie Glueck and Ken Vogel: “Trump’s dazed and demoralized adversaries find themselves at a defining moment: After unloading millions of dollars in attack ads aimed at destroying the real estate mogul, after the party’s 2012 nominee delivered a no-holds barred speech targeting him, and after conservatives far and wide spoke out in unrelenting terms about how he could never be president, he’s more dominant than ever ...

Those wacky food scientists at Frito-Lay are about to unleash their newest Frankenstein upon America: the cappuccino-flavored potato chip. The chip is expected to be unveiled Wednesday as one of four finalists for a Frito-Lay contest to create a new Lay's chip to be sold nationally, The Associated Press reports. Cappuccino is certainly the most unusual flavor, and joins Mango Salsa, Wasabi Ginger and Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese on the finalist list. The cappuccino flavor has all the makings of a marketing ploy to take the new Lay's chips viral. And that certainly happened this week, as people went online to mostly share their horror. "I am thoroughly disgusted that Lay's is coming out with cappuccino chips," wrote one Twitter user. "That's just nasty," chimed in another. "If Lay's makes cappuccino flavored chips I'm leaving the United States," wrote another. Coffee lovers may be disappointed to know that the chip doesn't have any actual coffee or caffeine in it. Seems regulators … [Read more...] about Strange brew: A cappuccino-flavored potato chip
Louis Freedberg Published 4:00 am, Sunday, August 5, 2001 Alfred Peet, a legendary figure in the gourmet coffee industry, hunched over a round wooden coffee table in Royal Coffee Co.'s unobtrusive offices at the Emeryville Marina. Around the table's circumference were dozens of cups of deep black coffee, each from a different plantation in Guatemala. Now 81 and mostly retired from the coffee business, Peet pushed his nose into small trays placed in front of the cups containing both green and roasted beans, snorting out and then in. He then dipped a tablespoon into the coffee, scooping out mudlike grounds, sniffing their odor. With a loud slurp he savored a mouthful of the dark brew, then spat into a bronze spittoon. The energetic Peet was engaging in the ancient ritual of "cupping" coffee, just as Reuben "R.W." Hills and Jim Folger did generations ago in San Francisco. As Hills and Folger laid the foundation for the multibillion-dollar coffee industry, a new … [Read more...] about Peet, Berkeley store paved Starbucks’ way / Specialty coffee pioneers fears quality fading with alternative brews now big business
