Kitchen Buzz: Cliffhangers from the Kitchen
The humorist is a direct descendant of the great French Emperor Napoleon. Actually, that explains a lot of things. Paul ran for President of the United States in 2016! Woo hoo! On the Bacon & Chocolate ticket. Estimates of Bacon & Chocolate’s share of the votes range from 3 to 1.5% of the total. El Candidato also lost a contentious campaign to be El Presidente of Venezuela. In late 2013, Chef Paul participated in the International Bento Competition.Contact us if you would like to share your recipes.
Many American beers are 3% alcohol. A twelve-ounce can contains .36 ounces of alcohol. Orange extract, a fair substitute, for orange flower water, is 79% alcohol. My two-ounce container contains 1.58 ounces of alcohol, the same as nearly 4.4 cans of beer. I’m breaking out the orange-extract. Woo hoo! Party at my place!
“Honestly, officer, I only had a one-ounce bottle of orange extract.”
The officer rolls his eyes. “Like, I never heard that before.”
My Mexican vanilla extract is only 1.9% alcohol. This is why it isn’t as popular at Mexican parties.
Consumption of cough syrup soared during the Prohibition Era. Perhaps the alcoholic content of 50%, or more, of many them contributed to this surge. Why didn’t Al Capone simply open orange-extract tasting centers? People would have gotten their alcohol and Chicago would have been spared a crime wave. But I can’t picture him behind an apron.
