Put your money in cheese puffs

Bacon is so 2005! Cheese puffs are what the cool kids are wearing this year. If orange crumbs on the front of your t shirt counts as “wearing”.

This wallet is only slightly less tasty than the original cheese puff. It’s made out of thin, tear-proof plastic for long lasting quality. Best of all… no crumbs.

Make your own fresh mozzarella

I remember the first time I saw someone make fresh mozzarella on television. I think it was the Barefoot Contessa or Martha Stewart who hosted a fabulous dinner with an A-list gay couple in upper state New York.

One of the guys nonchalantly said “honey we are about to make some mozzarella, do you want to join us?”. He then reached into a bowl of cloudy water, pulled out a hunk of white goo, and with a few twists there was a shiny ball of mozzarella.

It was magic. How could it be so easy to create cheese? How could I do that?

This raclette grill brings Switzerland to your party

Raclette heatersMost people are familiar with fondue. It’s a great party meal with people sitting around a table dipping goodies into a pot of melted cheese.

But do you know about a raclette?

Raclettes are the lesser known sister to the fondue pot. Instead of dipping goodies into melted cheese, you have a grill that melts the cheese and you combine it with bread, potatoes, meats, cornichons, and more.

My friends Jean-Pierre and Philippe introduced me to the raclette dinner party. They’d start by serving a green salad with a light dressing while the raclette grill heated up. We’d then start placing a chunk of tasty cheese in one of the grill’s pans and wait for it to melt. You’ll find yourself eating and talking and laughing for hours as you plow through pounds of cheese and stuff.

You’ll find raclette in Swiss fondue restaurants. However, they use a series of irons that melt the cheese and it is served to your table.

If you can’t decide between raclette and fondue, try this combination grill.
