Playing Around with Soba


Trying my best to avoid TheMan’s Wheat, I got ahold of some Soba noodles for the kids. Soba is buckwheat. Buckwheat is neither Buck nor wheat. I suspect I’ll learn more about its properties very soon. In the meantime, the noodles were a total hit ( I had to tell Lucy to drop her fork so I could grab a shot ). Served with a dash of olive oil ( I’m trying duck fat next time or tallow ) and a few spritzies if soy sauce.


We followed with a quick, quick chocolate custard that will soon find itself as a fudgey-pop. But look at those yolks! Tell me which two are farm eggs. If you could only hear the thud they make as the yolk drops from your fingers.
