I am a chef in NYC and am considering moving to austin. I was just trying to get a glimpse into the food and drink scene down there and was hoping anyone could recommend restaurants of all kinds, websites, blogs etc... any info would be greatly appreciated.
thanks

Maultasche

Does anyone know where to find these? They are kind of like a german, or more specifically, swabian ravioli. I used to eat them in germany, and just got a craving for em

best utensil for making spaetzle

I spent a year in germany and they all used a ricer to make it. in professional restaurants we use a perforated hotel pan and push/scrape the dought through with a rubber spatula directly into the boilig water

Strangest chow you've eaten?

I made ricotta cheese out of the milk that I used to leech the blood and impurities out of a lobe of foie gras. it was pretty bad. i tried to order ducks feet in thailand but they were out, so i had a raw fermented pork sausage(i got trichinosis from it, for real)

Training our Palates for Thailand

I just came back from a month all over thailand, and basically it seemed like if you just say 'spicy or chile' in thai, they will make it spicy. Also most places have several chile concotions on the table so you can adjust it yourself.

In reference to the street stalls, those places turn over product so quick its hard to get sick. they get there food that morning and often several times throughout the day, and I didnt get sick once. however, i did eat a raw fermented pork sausage in a sit down restaurant(great idea right)one nightmare of a week later, 20 pounds lighter, and still a very rough day once a week, I think i got trichinosis(not sure I havent been to the doctor yet cause I dont have health insurance. another great idea right)

it was totally worth it though, the food is that good
