Bean wake-up call

Rory and I are watching Chopped, enjoying some couch time together post-Singapore, and one of the basket items is…

Baked beans

baked beansOf course, there is much discussion about how the beans are going to work with the striped bass, yadda yadda yadda. But it immediately took me back to Monday morning in Singapore when I ordered your typical bacon-and-eggs breakfast before my training session, and the hotel served them with a side of baked beans.

That woke me up.

But I have to say — they were awesome.  Sweet and smoky in flavor, the baked beans were perfect with the bacon.  In theory I guess it’s not that surprising, but it was a first for me.

May not be the last.

Two-gether forever

Emerald may be the Pantone Color of the Year for 2013…but what is the Pantone Pairing?

Milk and cookies?
Bacon and eggs?
Ham and cheese?

Minneapolis-based illustrator and art director David Schwen has re-imagined all our favorite comfort foods as Pantone color swatches on his Instagram blog.

The idea came to him quite by accident, but the visual experiment somehow gets to the art at the heart of the culinary combinations we hold most dear.

My nomination for favorite Pantone Pairing?  Peanut butter and cheese.









Don’t knock it till you’ve paired it.
