 QUOTE
============================================= ==============
"I'm a man. Men cook outside. Women make the three-bean salad. That's the way it is and always has been, since the first settlers of Levittown. That outdoor grilling is a manly pursuit has long been beyond question. If this wasn't firmly understood, you'd never get grown men to put on those aprons with pictures of dancing wienies and things on the front..."
William Geist, New York Times Magazine

READERS QUESTIONS
============================================= ==============
QUESTION:  My 9 year old wants to know why there are holes in swiss cheese.. any idea?...It would make me a hero..
regards, Barry

ANSWER: After and initial 2 weeks of refrigerated curing, Swiss-type cheeses are then placed in warm storage (68-75 degrees) for 3 to 6 weeks. During this time, the bacteria that develop the flavor and texture of the cheese, produce carbon dioxide gas as a by product, and these bubbles of gas produce the holes.

The Picayune's CREOLE COOKBOOK (2nd edition, 1901)

SWEET POTATO WAFFLES (Gaufres de Patates Douces)

4 leftover potatoes
Other Ingredients in Proportion Given.

This is a good way to utilize left-over potatoes. To every two tablespoonfuls of mashed (sweet) potatoes add one of butter, one of sugar, one pint of milk, and four tablespoonfuls of flour. Beat all well together, and add one egg, well beaten. Bake in waffle iron, and serve with butter spread over.

 RECIPE REQUESTS FROM READERS
============================================= ==============
I was given a recipe for a vegetable dip and one of the spices/ herbs listed as an ingredient is something called "beaumonde". Can you help me figure out what this is and where I can purchase it being that I have already referenced about 15 other sources and have come up with nothing. My aunt, whom gave the recipe, has no idea what "beaumonde" is and her container of it is about 20 years old, or so she claims. Please help. The dip is excellent and I would like to make it with fresher ingredients.   Thank You for any help. Christina

Here is a recipe to make your own.
BEAUMONDE SEASONING
1 tablespoon ground cloves
1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon ground bay leaf
1 tablespoon ground allspice
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground mace
1 teaspoon celery seed
2 tablespoons ground white pepper
