Hot Stove Report

All four burners are on, so it’s an exciting day here on the Hot Stove Report. In a non-stick pan on the front left burner are three thick-cut slices of brioche, dipped in an egg batter enriched with milk, sugar, cinnamon, and just a splash of vanilla extract. In a pot right next to it, a cup of raisins being plumped up in a maple-fortified sugar syrup. We’re letting that reduce while we deal with some sides in the back. On the left rear burner, some spinach is being wilted down with butter, a pinch of nutmeg, and — secret ingredient — a tablespoon of miso paste. And on the back right, carrots sliced on the bias, glazing in some of that very same raisin-maple mixture cooking down just in front of it, with a handful of chopped pickled chili peppers for heat and some basil and a handful of roasted pecans thrown in at the last minute.

Now did someone say something about Emilio Bonifacio, or should we just eat?

Jeremy is the Coco ready?

Watch the burner, remember I like it Crisp.

Too much sugar. Also, where is the protein? The omega-3’s? The sprouted grains? Is that butter even grass-fed? This is not the Kap Lifestyle.

French toast with carrots and spinach? That is an odd meal.

Bonifacio’s TAR is below 0, so I’d stick with bacon.
