    commented on Rick Bayless and Be whole.

    I admire Mr. Bayless. He approaches ingredients and cooking with so much joy. In this interview, he says that 90% of the ingredients he uses in his restaurants are locally-sourced. I assume that means he buys chilies and tomatoes from greenhouses? I wonder if he finds a difference in taste from out-of-season, greenhouse-grown produce? Or I wonder what he is doing to ensure peak flavor?

    PDX estate sale with kitchen/canning equipment

    A friend dragged me to an estate sale another friend was organizing: hundreds of canning jars, other hard-to-find preserving equipment, meat grinders, bread tins, slicers, a cherry pitter, pickle crocks. I bought very little because of space issues here. So much left there! Go!

    Thanks for the tip. I managed to stop by and came home with with a flame tamer and another small whisk to add to my collection. The pickle crocks were gone though. Bummer.

    I agree... loved the perspective here, and I’m an omnivorous potato-lover so I see the beauty in all sorts of potato salads. Love Davies’ subversion, though...
