How do we feel about Bills Mafia? The city of Buffalo has been waiting for a game like this for years.

The Buffalo Bills completely dismantled the New England Patriots last night, 47-17 in the AFC Wild Card Round at Orchard Park, in a game that was not just a Bill Belichick blowout, but also historic in NFL history.

The Bills became the first team in NFL history to play a perfect game on offense. Quarterback Josh Allen and the Bills scored one touchdown on all seven drives; never had a 4th try; never kicked; never attempted a field goal; and did not return the ball once.

Allen had more touchdowns (5) than misses (4) in last night’s game as the nation talks about his incredible quality.

Two of Josh’s touchdown passes went to tight end Dawson Knox, and the first touchdown of the game was actually the number one play on SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays of the Night.

Allen had nearly 10 seconds to throw the pass and when he did, after scooting to the right, it looked to everyone at Highmark Stadium that he was throwing it. Josh even admitted after the game that he intended to dump him.

Knox said he thought he had a chance and grabbed it. When he came back on the sidelines, he thanked Allen, but Josh said he was throwing him away.

It looked like Josh was throwing it away. The crowd roared in surprise when Knox grabbed him. Reminiscent of Joe Montana’s touchdown pass to tight end Dwight Clark in the 1981 NFC Championship Game between the 49ers and the Cowboys.

The Bills are now waiting to see if they will face the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium or the Cincinnati Bengals at Highmark Stadium.

Belfast,

BT7 3HY

028 9064 3780

fruitshop.com

JUST so you know: if you stick around until the end, things are going to get a little dark – but in a good way.

Seems fair for a place like Fruit Shop, which isn’t just a cafe but the hub of an artist collective, created in 2020 by Mitch Conlon, Jennifer Mehigan and Phillip McCrilly. Last month, Conlon won the Turner Prize as a member of another Belfast collective, Array.

So the artistic references are impressive, but what if you’re more concerned with feeding your face than your soul?

As central as the artistic mission of its identity and existence is, we’re here to eat, so all the art in the world won’t make up for a crap lunch.

It’s not necessary.

The space itself is a stripped-down cafe, simple tables and chairs under the wooden frame of a drop ceiling, minus the ceiling.

The menu is short but not lacking in choice because everything is a convincing argument to order.

The starting point is vegetarian/vegan but that’s just a starting point. You can add a fried egg and/or bacon to everything – an option that more places, not just cafes and restaurants, need to explore.

I reflect on this considering the fact that I’m getting my hair cut on the side.

“What will it be today?”

“Short backs and sides, please.

“Add a fried egg and bacon?” »

“Sure.”

Although there are menu changes and adjustments every week, okonomiyaki is a staple, and it’s easy to see why. In Japanese, okonomiyaki translates to “whatever you like to cook” and Fruit Shop presents you with a bowl of all the good stuff.

At the bottom is the indispensable thick pancake, in this case full of sweet potato and cabbage. To get there, you have to dip into a miso chive mayonnaise, cashew nut and blood orange furikake seasoning, pickled radish salad, cucumber and shallot.

And a fried egg. Sure.

It’s a color wheel for all the senses. There’s crunch, crunch and bite, burnt edges and smooth sauces. The taste bingo card fills up with every bite – sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami. So much umami.

And even then, the okonomiyaki has to bow to the grilled Fruit Shop sandwich to deliver that deep flavor.

Today it’s a vegetarian option, which can be de-vegetarianized with bacon but really doesn’t need it, not only because it holds up perfectly, but because it’s massive.

Two slices of sourdough from Bara Bakehouse in Newtownards struggle to contain roasted chestnut mushrooms, chilli-fried kale, ricotta overflowing with candied garlic and capers. This one comes with the fried egg in the first place without you having to ask. It’s a civilized place that way.

Don’t even consider eating with your hands, not just because of the runny yolk crown perched on top. It’s a knife and fork job, and one to savor.

And now that darkness has been promised to you. It comes from an unlikely source – something to take home and enjoy with a cup of tea or Fruit Shop’s excellent coffee.

The array of pastries at the checkout is positively moody.

Vegan Florentine chocolate wears its cocoa solids like a badge of honor. Nuts are caramelized deeply and with purpose. There’s crunch and chewiness and the thing is the size of a frisbee.

The Basque cheesecake is a piece of soft, slightly tart sweetness beneath its signature blackened top, with the burnt skin giving way to a simmering interior.

Even the chocolate chip cookies come with a splash of miso, and the lemonade – freshly made in the back – comes from burnt lemons and added bay leaves.

Serious, adult treats and good food with or without the art. Or a fried egg.

Okonomiyaki (plus egg) £9.50

Grilled sandwich £8.50

Basque cheesecake €2.80

Chocolate chip miso cookie €2

Florentine €2.50

It’s a rare thing to walk into a brand new store and know exactly what you want before you’ve even stepped in, but Freed’s itself is a rare thing in Las Vegas.

The nearly 63-year-old local bakery, with multiple locations throughout the Valley, is one of the few venerable institutions in the city of Vegas, and it’s still family-run. Needless to say, when you walk into the Freed’s Dessert Shop in downtown Arts District 18b, located next to Esther’s Kitchen and Yu-Or-Mi sushi, you get an idea of ​​the sweet delicacies to expect from the latest. place of the Fried family.

Freed’s cakes, cookies, cupcakes, brownies and rugelach are second to none, and this bright and cozy boutique is full of them. I have a habit of loading cookies – they cost around $ 18 for a pound, $ 9 for a half pound – and I always start a box with their raspberry butter cookies, melting golden flowers with a dot. jam in the middle. Next come the almond shortbread, sprinkled with almond slices, and coconut macaroons. From there, I ask for the Russian tea cookies coated with powdered sugar, the lemon cookies, the white chocolate macadamia candies…

Look, to be honest, at one point I just say, ‘I’m going to take it all. You can’t go wrong with Freed’s cookies. They are the elect of heaven.

The same goes for the rich and glorious Black Forest Cake ($ 6 a slice), the cupcakes, generously topped with Freed’s signature buttercream ($ 3 each), and the densely flavored rugelach (prices vary. ), which Freed’s sells by box. (Try the Raspberry Raisin.) Freed’s famous cakes are also available: cannoli cream, Parisian chocolate, vanilla cake with Bavarian cream and more.

And a nod to their new neighborhood, this Freed’s has some great art – a photo wall of Las Vegas circa 1959 (the year the original Freed’s opened), curated by local historian Brian “Paco” Alvarez , and a colorful mural by Shan Michael Evans. They’re almost enough to distract your attention from Freed’s exceptional edible art.

If you were born and raised in western New York State, you might not even realize how strong your Buffalo accent is.

When you’re a Buffalo transplant, the accent is a bit more noticeable, and there’s a little quiz you can use to determine how strong your Buffalo accent really is.

The Buffalo accent has strong traces of European dialects, including Polish and German, but also Italian / Scilian. A language teacher identified a handful of attributes of the Buffalo accent, including:

  • the “dish a”
  • “hard one”
  • other variations in our speech, including the drop-down list of central vowels
    • For example, “lit” might sound like “bad”.

There are even traces of a “valley girl” accent in Buffalo too, but it’s more about intonation.

One sentence will reveal how strong (or weak) your Buffalo accent is.

Frank and Joanne got off Transit from Amherst to Lancaster. “

People with a Buffalo accent will have a long, hard A in words like Frank, Ran, Lancaster.

Many people on the outside have said that the West New York accent looks like a combination of a New York and Canadian accent.

You may also hear the Buffalo accent in these other colloquial words and statements.

So… how strong is your accent? 🙂

I want to make dessert every day, again.

“I’m hungry” were two words that drove me crazy after 7pm for 27 years.

For years when my kids were young, I made some sort of dessert to help fill them up at night. They were bottomless wells that had to be filled every two hours.

“The kitchen is closed,” I said with an irritated inflection in my voice after 7pm.

Growing up, they had cakes, bars, cookies, pies, pies and more waiting for them after dinner. Now I look back and think I was a great mom.

Mom will do just about anything for their kids. What? Want some chocolate chip cookies for dessert? You got it. Creme brulee ? No problem. Rhubarb pie? Why didn’t you ask sooner?

Now I would love to hear the words, am I hungry or will you make me…? When my kids come to visit me I try hard not to be that annoying mom who always asks me what can I do to you? So, I plead with my eyes and nod at the covered dessert tray that sits in front and in the center of the kitchen counter filled with my latest creation.

Problem is, there are a million new desserts that I’ve never been able to make for them, like a peanut butter ganache cheesecake or stacks of ice cream waffles deep-fried. cinnamon with a hot caramel sauce.

I will cook and make desserts. That’s what I do.

As I take my business online for now, I will be creating and experimenting more than ever. Friends, you are about to get lucky.

If you would like to be the recipient of any of my desserts, email me and tell me why you would like one. I’ll see what I can do to get you settled. No guarantees, but you will have a good chance of receiving one. Write to me at wisconsinmilkhouse@gmail.com

In the meantime, these cookies are super easy to make and they’re worth sharing because they look so pretty.

White chocolate and cherry shortbread cookies

¾ powdered sugar (and more for sprinkling)

1 cup of dried cherries, finely chopped

½ cup good quality white chocolate, chopped

In large bowl with hand mixer, beat butter, powdered sugar, sugar and vanilla extract until just light and fluffy; about 3 minutes. Add the flour, cherries and white chocolate. Mix by hand until well blended. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into a log 2 inches in diameter. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Cut the log into ¼ inch cookies and place them on the baking sheet. Bake until cookies are golden; about 12-15 minutes. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Cool the cookies completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. store in a tightly closed case.

Denver’s pizza scene is changing. Neapolitan pizza has grown in popularity since the opening of Cart-Driver in 2014; Detroit-style rectangular pies like those from Blue Pan are cutting edge; pies made on a sourdough crust are a staple in new places like Joy Hill, Redeemer and the Greenwich.

And while it’s common for its people to bemoan the lack of good options in the city, there are plenty of long-standing staples that have been a part of the pizza game for decades, where you can score a reliable pie – along with other Italian-American classics.

Here are thirteen old-fashioned pizza restaurants that have stood the test of time in Mile High.

Beau Jo’s

Sold by the pound with honey on the side to dip your crust on, these pies are a favorite with outdoor enthusiasts who make a detour to I-70 to fill up after a long day in the hills. These days Beau Jo’s also offers more traditional “prairie pies” and cauliflower and gluten-free crust options alongside its menu of starters, salads, calzones and more.

Surrounded by trendy spots in what today is called the Highlands district, this spot which opened in 1953 hasn’t changed much since. Now owned by John Ludwig, who landed his first job at Carl at the age of sixteen in 1976, it has retained its old-fashioned, no-frills atmosphere – and still serves homemade sausages, calzones, pasta, pizza on a not too-thin crust, not too thick and more.

Lindsay grew up in Boston and Chris grew up between New York and Germany, so they like to say their pizza is kind of a hybrid, with influences from each of those places. It’s a thin crust, and they’re constantly experimenting to create new, unique flavor profiles. The “Specktacular” pie includes speck, oregano, pepperoncini, mozzarella and goat cheese, and the “PWA” includes jalapeño, pepperoni, onions, hot honey, cheese and topping still controversial, pineapple. The Lyons pride themselves on running a true mom-and-pop style pizzeria where everything is made from scratch.

To make Giada De Laurentiis Nutella Fried Ravioli, you’ll want to start by taking store-bought wonton wrappers and brushing the edges with an even amount of egg wash. Add a generous teaspoon of chocolate-hazelnut spread, avoiding any temptation to put it directly in your mouth – it’s hard, we know! Then fold the wonton sheet diagonally to form a triangle and gently crimp the edges with the tips of two fingers. Be careful, because if you press too much on the delicate paper or if you do not seal the edges sufficiently, the ravioli could burst when fried.

Then prepare a Dutch oven with a little vegetable oil heated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and add a few pieces of ravioli at a time. (Working in batches helps to avoid overcrowding, which only prevents the ravioli from cooking properly.) The recipe states that the frying process should take about 45 seconds per side, although it may take longer to cook. get to the perfect golden state (via Food Network).

This baking project can be done solo, but De Laurentiis and his mom demonstrate how even sweeter it is when loved ones do it together (via YouTube). Plus, someone can fry while the other assembles the dumplings and makes the fresh mint filling, which Giada in the video says “makes it really pretty.” When the allotted time has elapsed, gently remove each batch of ravioli from the casserole dish and, while they are still hot, sprinkle them with a fine dusting of powdered sugar. So, enjoy it immediately!

Good year! If you are reading this, we did it. Or, at least, there are only a few hours left. Until 2022, and I have a good feeling about this one. At least the year is ending with some great news, including an expansion of a local brewery in Oakland, a new cocktail list from one of my favorite local bartenders, and a delicious pop-up to check out.

If Covid has once again crushed your New Year’s plans, I’m here with you. I mean, I have a baby, so I probably wasn’t going to make it out anyway, but still. I will, however, have a fabulous New Years Eve, and I would like you to join me (virtually).

News

Capitola-based Sante Adairius Rustic Ales Brewery takes the reins of a beloved craft beer bar in Oakland. After opening in 2007, at the start of the craft beer boom, the Trappist has earned a reputation for serving some of the best beers in the world with meticulous care and attention. Over the years, it has become an institution and a mecca for beer lovers, who have traveled all over the world to visit their beautiful, intimate tasting room inside an 1870s Victorian in Old Oakland.

The Trappist regularly featured beers from Sante Adairius, which was ranked one of the ten best breweries in the world by enthusiasts in love with its Belgian beers, seasons, acids and IPA. An Instagram post from December 29 announced that the owners Adair paterno and Tim clifford were “humiliated” when the Trappist owners, who had become their good friends over the years, offered to pass the torch to them. “They leave us both a legacy and a space that we are honored to manage in his next life”, the post reads.

Paterno and Clifford officially take over in January, and Rustic Ales Oakland Arbor will open soon after. This is the third location for Sante Adairus, after their flagship Capitola brewery, which opened in 2012 and their Santa Cruz Portal in Midtown, which opened in 2017.

Emmanuel Hernandez, one of the most beloved bartenders, is back after a brief stint up the hill at Dry Creek Grill in Campbell. Hernandez has helped craft cocktail menus at some of the city’s best bars, including Front & Cooper, Barceloneta, and Soif. You can now find him at Avanti Restaurant in the Westside, where he creates a seasonal cocktail menu with rare spirits, syrups, and cordials that he creates in-house.

My first drink is a riff on a boulevardier, one of my favorite cocktails. In Hernandez’s version, along with Four Roses bourbon and traditional Campari, he replaces red vermouth with allspice liqueur for a bigger dose of hot spices and adds a homemade apple syrup. He pours the ruby ​​cocktail onto a huge transparent ice cube and garnishes it with a translucent burst of orange candy balanced on the rim of the glass. I take a bite before dropping the candy into the drink and giving it a swirl. The cocktail is rich, sweet and spicy, starting off sweet and ending with a mouth-watering bitterness.

On a plate of sizzling Idiazabal cheese with grilled peppers ($ 13), which I stack on toasted slices of homemade sourdough, Mezcalito Manny (@mezcalito_manny) slips me a cocktail that bears his name. Hernandez has a personal connection with every ingredient in Mezcalito: bitters made from chocolate from Oaxaca, where his family comes from; smoked mexican mezcal; pineapple, which he loved to eat with his grandmother; and Amaro, the typical bartender’s drink after the shift, as anyone who has worked in the service industry can attest. The result is a delicious layered cocktail that I can’t help but sip on.

Hernandez plans to add an Old Fashioned Fireside to this list of winter cocktails, made with rye whiskey, toasted pecan syrup, and citrus bitter, both made in-house so he can control the flavor profile and sweetness. You can enjoy his new arrivals and other fan favorites, all for $ 13, on his menu at Avanti from Wednesday to Sunday from 5 p.m. avantisantacruz.com.

Apéro Club, the ultra-trendy natural wine bar tucked behind Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing in Swift Street Courtyard in Westside, is fast becoming a destination for super cool pop-ups. A few weeks ago, I stopped in for a glass of wine and a few bites of La Afición, which I knew nothing about except the food looked delicious on Instagram.

Over a glass of fresh Loire Valley Gamay my friends and I tossed raw oysters in smoked olive oil and sherry vinegar in jelly, dragged bits of winter squash fried with crispy sage through browned butter aioli, and oo’d and ahh ‘d over a creamy persimmon pudding with custard.

Chef Lucas Morris-Lopez is originally from San Juan Bautista and lived and worked in Santa Cruz for nine years before moving to Mexico City three and a half years ago. He visits his family until mid-January and does a few pop-ups in some places while he’s here.

Laficion

On Tuesday January 4, La Afición collaborates with Mestiza for a pop-up inspired by “Cali-Mexa” at La Posta. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made via OpenTable. La Afición is also organizing two pop-ups in San Juan Bautista on January 6 and 14, and at least one more pop-up at the Apéro Club on a date to be determined. After returning to Mexico City, Morris-Lopez hopes to open his pop-up as a restaurant early next year. For more information, follow him on Instagram at @laficioncdmx.

Events

I know I’m not the only one staying for New Years Eve. There are tempting fixed price dinners available, including those at Home in Soquel and Vim in Santa Cruz. But Omicron’s rapid and ruthless spread has plenty of potential revelers who avoid crowded indoor environments. I will stay there too, but my reason is more banal: I have a 7 month old baby.

But after he goes to bed at 7pm, my husband and I have big plans. We’ll start the evening with a dozen fresh oysters, probably peeled and eaten directly over the kitchen sink.

Next, we’ll start cooking a grass-fed grain rib eye, our favorite cut from El Salchichero, and discuss when to flip it (part of the fun). I will open the nicest bottle of local wine we can responsibly afford and end our meal with take out chocolate chip cookies from Mutari.

If you also stay indoors, it’s the perfect night for a dinner party, even if the guests are just the beings you live with. Fry the chicken and wash it with lots of champagne! Fold your own dumplings! Eat blinis and caviar with a frozen martini! If you do, tag me on Instagram @lilywrenn, and we’ll ring the bell together in 2022.
