This Week’s Best

This Week's Best

Some of the top food, drink and travel content from the past week.

Food
French Onion Soup with Comté Cheese Toasts – It’s difficult to find good French cheese where I am, so reading recipes like this one from Cook Sister is a bit of self-imposed torture. I recently came across this blog and am very impressed by the writing.

Homemade Salted Dark Chocolate Almond Butter – The name of the recipe says it all. Nutella will now have some serious competition in my house.

Drink
Chartreuse and Tonic – A straightforward and beautifully photographed cocktail from The Straight Up. Also, I need to find out where to get the cycle print that served as the background for the shots.

New York and Brooklyn Brewery – This post induced quite a bit of Brooklyn homesickness with its shots of pork dumplings, street art and beards (two in one frame – nice). The posts from the past couple of months on Beer and Baking are superb, so block off some time to enjoy them this weekend.

Travel
Travelers That Will Inspire You – Justin of True Nomads names some of the most inspiring travelers out there. A good read for anyone who is starting out or is in need of a push.

Tavern Toncic Zrenj: Maybe I Should Keep It Secret – I got to know Frank’s site through the #SundayTraveler link-up and have been a loyal reader since that first weekend. He finally had the opportunity to dine at Tavern Toncic Zrenj in the Istrian countryside. Stone walls, homemade brandy and scrambled eggs with black truffles awaited.
