Watch out kids, there’s a new blog in town. Brought to you by The Dirty Girls (+ Lil’ Bandit and LV2), this is what we will be doing instead of writing our theses. Check it out for up to date information on our empty pockets and full bellies.

I’m back from Calabria, safe, sound and only 3 pounds heavier. Verdict? Success. By far the most random trip we’ve had yet, it proved to be interesting, sometimes delicious and generally entertaining. Best of moments included: chili peppers everywhere, tangerines everywhere, mozzarella turned into awesome animals making, 9:30 am shot drinking, cheese smelling, pigs, milk for your cappuccino straight out of a goats utter (oh yes), eyeball/brain tasting, traditional dancing, nature walking/freezing, hanging out with the bodyguard to 4 U.S. presidents (what??), top notch food, pasta making, yatzee playing, cannoli eating, olive oil pressing, Italian immigration learning, beach limbo’ing, karaoke, model photoshoots, mafia fighting priests, fish “juice” tasting, sardine canning, tuna canning (eek), fish auctions, me-size chocolate eggs, spreadable salami making, IGP onions, beach touring, Gollum pizza, stripes wearing, museum visiting and so much more… Slow Food, you ain’t so bad.

Remember when the nona taught me to make pasta? Today was an equally life changing foodie experience. Yvonne’s mom, aka Mama Nederland, gave us a step by step tutorial of her famed secret family recipe for Dutch apple pie. I’ve been sworn to secrecy so only pictures are allowed, but if you play your cards right… this might just be in your plate come NYE 2013.

Considering this is absolutely my favorite part of the day here in Toulouse, I can’t believe I’ve never posted anything on it before. That being said, better late than never.

So while I realize I’ve already mentioned how awesome What Katie Ate is, I just can’t pass up this opportunity to freak out over her xmas edition extravaganza. Food porn doesn’t even do it justice. Flip through the book (click on the small cover) for 300+ pages of of pure win from 7+ photographers who make you feel like a) what you’re eating is crap and b) you should never even attempt to take a decent picture again.

I dare you. Seriously. Today was craft central. Foie-gras cooking lessons led to macaroons au foie-gras! Making my own apple jam! French toast! Sauteed foie gras! Porto mousse! Peppercorn caramel! Foie-gras creme brulee, in an egg! Foie-gras rolls with onion and raisin jelly! I seriously probably ate like 5 geese today.
Also, I made that book cover! From scratch! And binded it!
