WHERE IS YOUR LUSTRE NOW?
I was thumbing through an old copy of Gastronomica magazine and came across this staggeringly fine ad for Tryphosa jelly dessert.   I had never heard of Tryphosa which apparently is also the name of a woman in the Bible, but the spelling is alarmingly close...

MORE SPUD LORE
So I went back to Franklin and Company to have their waffle cut duck fries.    They were good, although you could have easily imagined something gamier and more duck-intense.     I suppose I was thinking of goose fat, which I know costs more than duck fat, ...

I’ve been walking, and thinking about obelisks. If you walk a couple of miles, all of them up hill, from where I am now in East Hollywood, you’ll come to the Griffith Park Observatory, and outside it you’ll find this: It’s sometimes known as the  Griffith O...

STIRRING STUFF
I’ve been sifting through the Psychogourmet Archive and once again I saw this image which has been in the flies for a good few years. It raises a lot of questions and I don’t have many of the answers, but it purports to be, and I’m prepared to believe it is...

THE ONE WORLD MISALLIANCE
I’ve been back in LA, from London, for about a month now, and in truth I haven’t been doing very much walking. When the temperature reaches  (90 every day (and yesterday it was 97 – that’s 36 degrees for lovers of Centigrade) it rather takes the spring out ...

POETS WALKING
Nobody seriously doubts that there’s a vital connection between walking and poetry.  Not even me, although I do sometimes struggle to grasp what most contemporary poetry is “for.” There is, I understand, a rather good book on the subject, edited by David Ke...

Food photography it’s a funny old thing isn’t it?       Here’s a rather wonderful picture of the “Housemade Potato Chips - gorgonzola and calabrian chili dip, parmesan, black pepper” at Stella Barra Pizzeria on Sunset Boulevard, in Los Angeles. I didn’t tak...

POTATO AMUSEMENTS
I’ve been thinking I might go on a road trip to Idaho next month, and I suppose I must have googled a few tourists destinations – but I was still surprised (to the extent that anything about the internet surprises me anymore), that The Idaho Potato Museum i...
