The Internet Kitchen: Richmond!
I’m in Richmond, VA this weekend to hang out with the lovely people from Sabra hummus. They invited me in to take a tour of their hummus production factory and see how they make their hummus.
Highlights include getting to try every single one of their flavors (there are like 80 – not all are in stores everywhere) and getting to tour a real chickpea farm which may sound boring, but I’m excited for it. I’m also getting to meet some other awesome food bloggers like Dan, Kevin and Amanda, Maria and Josh, Matt, and Jenny!
I’m planning on taking some photos (although I can’t take photos of everything) and also doing some hummus related recipes in the next week or so.
By chance, Betsy’s brother also lives in Richmond so I’m staying a few extra days after the Sabra tour to hang out with their family. Who knows what kind of trouble we are going to get into. I’ve never been to Richmond before so if you have any food/drink recs, leave a comment!
No poll this week because I’m on the road and away from my kitchen!
Pastere – I’ve never heard of this dish before, but it looks really good. Basically, it’s congealed pasta salad. It’s funny because I always have sort of liked eating congealed pastas like when you store mac and cheese in the fridge and it turns into a block. I like eating it just like that sometimes and this recipe reflects that I’m not the only one! (@ Food in my Beard)
Smoked Salmon Candy – You need a smoker for this recipe, but if you happen to have one and happen to get your hands on some good salmon, it seems like as good a use as any. I could eat an absurd amount of this I think. (@ Hunter Angler Gardener Cook)
Heirloom Tomato Salad – It’s starting to be the beginning of really good tomatoes in the markets and I can think of no better way to eat them then sliced with fresh mozzarella. It’s my favorite and I can guarantee that I’ll eat some tomatoes in a salad like this more than a few times in the next month. (@ White on Rice Couple)
