This Week’s Best

This Week Best

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

Food
“Fruit and Nut” Chocolate Cake – A gorgeous chocolate cake recipe from Hungry Rabbit. Think of a soft, rich loaf of Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut Chocolate Bar.

Roasted Chicken and Grapes over Polenta – This is a great recipe for a small dinner party, as the chicken and grapes are balanced nicely by the polenta. Becky at the Vintage Mixer recommends this roast chicken as an alternative to the laborious Thanksgiving turkey.

Drink
The Fortune Teller Cocktail, A Rummy Fortune, Indeed – With characteristics similar to a Negroni, this new cocktail shared by Gastronomista should serve to combat the creeping winter cold.

Beer Review: Sam Adams Thirteenth Hour – Oliver Gray’s award-winning beer blog is incredibly entertaining and well written. This post is an example of how a proper beer review should read.

Travel
Hiking the Kobarid Historical Trail in Slovenia – Laurel from Monkeys & Mountains recounts her trek on this trail full of WWI history. Be sure to enjoy her photos of the aquamarine Soca River.

Berlin: This City is Under Construction – A funny and beautiful photo essay by Brendan van Son with plenty of shots of the evolving German capital.
