In The Name Of Food

22 Mar


This week I very seriously considered paying $57 to overnight kouign aman from Les Madeleines in Salt Lake to my home in Malibu.

Like pro/con listed it out.

Sadly this would not be the most extreme thing I’ve ever done in the name of food.

Once I drove four hours for a donut.  Just a couple of weeks ago I had an $88 12-pack of Fresca in my Amazon shopping cart because I thought LA didn’t sell that grapefruity goodness.  (False alarm.)

The point is I do crazy stupid things for love.  And by love I mean food.

Luckily I have the best roommate ever and she located a store in Beverly Hills that carries kouign aman.  While it was less dramatic/cinematic/INTENSE to just drive to Beverly Hills for what I wanted, it worked.  Maybe I should try this moderation/compromise/realism thing more often?

What’s the craziest thing you have ever done in the name of food?

    Oh man J Lo…. I could write a book on this subject but I will give you only one. When I was a young’un like you I went on a road trip with a friend to LA. Not in the our plan but on mine was a side trip to LaJolla to check out the most amazing beaches but my secret plan was to get the most amazing meringue with chocolate ganache at The French Pastry shoppe on LaJolla Blvd. I still crave that yum of a dessert.

      Oh… I love Les Madeline and the kouign aman or the Queen Lateefa as I like to refer to it. I am craving one now.

      I love this. Meringue with chocolate ganache has now been added to my food bucket list.
