Pictured before, but this bacon is allll for something…
I. Bacon in liquids? Oh goodness, yes, in cocktails with a shimmy of maple syrup! Don’s concocting delicious magic over at PDT with his Bacon-Infused Old Fashioned. Sounds intriguing? Check here for the video release – find it also in print in this week’s issue of New York Magazine.
II. A taste of the palmier cookies at Gramercy Tavern last weekend quickly brought back to mind just how much I love these cookies. Saint Germain back home in Hawai’i bakes my favourite palmiers – palm sized and lightly sweet with a deft crunch.
Palmiers @ Gramercy Tavern.
Don enjoyed them so much that I baked up a batch later that evening, which were quickly devoured. Note to self: must seek out more bakeries in the city offering palmiers.

III. This dessert pictured above from Momofuku Ssam haunts me in drool-worthy dreams. A three-part creation of pistachio croustiallant, pineapple, and malted ice milk makes for texturally intriguing bites. Icy shards of malted chocolate, pineapple delivered in a chilly tang, coupled with the nutty crackle of croustiallant – ground pistachios braided into every spoonful.
