dang, it's hot.



part three of the dead bread trilogy

maybe i'm the only person in the world who can't finish a whole croissant, maybe i'm not. whatever. say you have a croissant lying about so long you're about to charge it rent, here's what you do: cut it in half width-wise, not lengthwise, so you have two crescents. if it is rancid, throw it out! if it's dry, hollow out the centers carefully; if it's still flooby, push aside the layers so you create a pocket. beat an egg white with a glug of simple syrup, or any flavoured italian soda syrup, or honey, brush on the inside of the pocket and on the crust, sprinkle with sliced almonds and bake at 350ºf for 10 minutes or until crispy. cool on a rack. fill with your favourite ice cream.

trust me on this one.

and if you love trying japanese dishes, go to cafe crea. it's between okura & westin. ask for the hamburg steak! yum!

hafa adai, how's vegas? there used to be a café crea at the itc building (where i work), i used to go there for lunch all the time. they haven't moved out any of their stuff, so i guess they're hoping to open up again, one day. the hamburg steak *is* great.

thanks for stopping by!

oh ha ha ha!! i used to work there!!!
my name is ces..

funny. no wonder it closed down--everyone moved! do you ever talk to the owner anymore? i wanted to ask him if we could start showing movies on summer nights on the big wall. we could have mini-film festivals, he could rake in the concession bucks.
