ISO Cocktail Condiments

just giving you a heads up i was in chapters today in the eaton centre and they had "mix, shake, stir" on sale for 9.99$
Really good deal these are all the drinks from Danny Meyer's restaurants ie gramercy tavern, jazz standard etc.
In my opinion its a great book and if you are interested in cocktails this would be a great buy!

Carpano -- now what?

yes the restaurant has been sold, the last service as Carpano was on November 29th. My understanding is there's going to be a 2-3 week turnaround and it should reopen as a new restaurant with a new concept.

PEPSI Throwback- have you seen it?

i found the "throwback" is not a sweet and is missing a little zing that the new pepsi has. Also bought my case @ sobeys on dupont

The Butcher Shoppe - What do you buy there?

try beef cheeks ( these are great for braising)
Frozen baby back ribs ( they come in a case of 7 racks normally costs about 40 bucks or so)
beef back ribs
they carry rabbits, ham hocks, duck breasts, cornish hens all sorts of stuff. Use them all the time.
