The Bacon Hall of Fame Top 5

The Bacon Hall of Fame. I should stop right there, really.

The Costco Report: Eating My (Cheesy) Words

I received some criticism for yesterday’s post – some silly (“Why do you even shop at Costco?”), and some quite fair (“Maybe it’s uneconomic for smaller local dairies to supply Costco.”). I like to think that I can take it as well as I can dish it out and, while I sometimes like to play rough, I also like to play fair, so here’s my mea culpa de fromage: While I may decry my inability to source local cheeses from the Santa Rosa Costco, and while I may now have to drive further and pay more to procure some of my favorite products as a result, that is not necessarily any fault of the Big C.

New Year’s Eve: Serve This, Get Lucky

If you’ve already got Champagne and caviar lying about, then by all means, use it, and with neither apology nor reservation. But here is my contribution: Whatever you do, make sure you serve something that will get you lucky. As it happens – to nobody’s surprise, at least if they’re regular readers – we in the Proximal Kitchen are nothing if not opinionated, and we love most of all to pontificate about which foods and wines are most likely to earn you flirty looks and even messier sheets, and we’ve got just the ticket:

Dine out for Life today

Time to do it again. Eat out, save lives. It’s as simple as that.

They eat what?!

Consider this a drive-by post: I’m not sure where it’s going, but it happened really fast, and I may have hit something. Or not, and I’ve swerved into a ditch. In either case, I often get curious about what the rest of the world is doing, and some of the data on the per-capita consumption of various foodstuffs is fascinating…
