davidlebovitz I'm constantly surprised when people use staples around food. When I bit down on this, at first I thought it was a fish bone... 21h

  •   rvgoddessterry Hope you were at least eating fish. Years ago, at one of those fancy steak houses, I found one of those HUGE copper staples on my plate. Free dinner. 14h

davidlebovitz Late lunch: Mashed goat cheese with herbs and olives, cucumbers with onions, rice vinegar and tarragon, with olives and pistachio oil, and pumpkin seeds - not bad when I just had a bunch of odds and ends in the refrigerator! 5d

davidlebovitz Well, the fruitflies are back (can't blame 'em - I like all the summer fruit, too!) but trying to trap them with cider vinegar (w/a few drops of dishwashing liquid, like people advise) hasn't been successful. Even dropped some fruit pits in there too, hoping they'd go for those as well. Nope. Zip. Nada. They're not fooled... 1w
  •   ihellaloveberkeley Just set up mine tonight...hopefully it works! They are driving me NUTS. I never had this problem in Paris!!! 1w
  •   carrylikeharry They don't work for me. The only thing that does is that long sticky roll of paper. 1w
  •   br0n5ki What works for me is the vacuum cleaner! Those suckers fly too slow. 1w
  •   xelloss_sama My kitchen is invaded by them! Tried the vacuum cleaner and the sticky fly trapper roll, but there are too many of them! Instead, a forgotten bottle of Becks lemon beer did most of the trick... 7d
  •   chrisdee2004 David, they are Parisian fruit flies. They will hold out for red wine. 7d
  •   thelemontart try removing the wrap. This is my way of trapping them and It works everytime. It's kinda gross how many end up in it. I find wine vinegar works best. 6d
  •   joylynnf I also use red wine vinegar, a few drops of dishwashing liquid, and no wrap. Seems to work pretty well. 6d
  •   atexanabroad Put way more apple cider vinegar. Leave the wrap but tighten it across the top. Don't poke holes that are too big but just big enough for one to crawl in.... I just defeated mine this way after 3 weeks 3d

davidlebovitz Someone recently asked me about European loaf pans, specifically in regard to the shape. I like and use them because I like the crisp angles and straight sides. Although these are slightly sloped, this Revol beauty was a gift from @elizabethkarmel and I'm excited about finally getting to use it : ) 1w

davidlebovitz Pesto, again! (And I'm not stopping until the end of summer...) 1w
  •   sherbobo Cashews are also super delicious in pesto, but i dont toast them because the oily flavor gets too pronounced 1w
  •   kathilu Hey David, what's your favorite mortar and pestle-granite or marble? Pros and cons of either from your perspective?? Thnx. 1w
  •   hulyaeksigil Some day I saw an Italian chef adding one boiled and well mashed potato to his pesto sauce, saying that it adds body @davidlebovitz Since than, I follow his foot steps and am very happy with the result. 1w
  •   jjkr84 @robertmarten same wavelength!! 1w
  •   davidlebovitz @kathilu I like these Thai granite ones 1w
  •   davidlebovitz @hulyaeksigil I've seen cooks in Provence add some Gruyere to theirs to make it a bit creamier so I often do that. 1w
  •   hulyaeksigil That is a richer version and must be delicious @davidlebovitz 1w
  •   villa_cassiopeia Looks delicious!! 7d
