Wisconsin's Clever Use for Cheese Brine

Potato-and-Mozzarella Croquettes

Several counties in Wisconsin are repurposing cheese brine—the salty liquid left over after the cheese-making process—to salt their roads this winter. If you're cooking with burrata or mozzarella this season, you might try dousing your your stairs and walkways with the brine it comes packed in.

The Anti-F&W Diet

 

Count political super-blogger Andrew Sullivan among the hopeful proponents of Soylent, the crowdfunded, could-not-be-more-disturbingly-named liquid that promises to free its users from the chore of consuming food. "I long for it," bemoaned Sullivan last night, explaining that he's just not that into eating. Some of Soylent's proponents say it makes them feel good and think more clearly, though Motherboard's Brian Merchant did experience some weakness and a complete inability to enjoy alcoholic beverages when he experimented with the diet for 30 days (though he also lost 10 pounds and generally felt "fine—even good"). He also tore desperately into fried chicken when his journalistic endeavor was finally complete.

F&W is all for eating healthy, emphasis on eating (and drinking—the Food & Wine Diet means something delicious and a glass of wine that add up to 600 calories or less). Tell us your strategies for getting good nutrition and living well using the #FWHealthy tag on Twitter, and your ideas could be featured in print. (How we may use your content.)

PDTs Brand-New Mission Chinese Dog

“Mapo tofu and I have quite a history,” says Mission Chinese Food’s Danny Bowien. “It’s the inspiration behind the whole MCF project.” I consider it the perfect dish; the only thing I’ve wished for is a supersonic cocktail to wash it down with. Lucky me: MCF in Manhattan now has a sparkling new liquor license and a team set on perfecting the most perfect version of Sex on the Beach.

Now there’s more great booze-and-tofu news: the exceptional bar PDT has just put the Mission Chinese Dog on their menu. It’s an all-beef hot dog covered with Bowien’s exhilarating, Szechuan peppercorn-packed tofu, plus onions, cilantro and American cheese sauce. The Mission Chinese Dog is spicy and messy and requires a knife and fork. And, of course, a cocktail. PDT’s Jim Meehan recommends the Alambic Fizz, a mix of Cognac, lemon juice, Landy's 5-Year-Old Bual Madeira and pimento bitters. It’s also got peach lambic. Peach schnapps is key to Sex on the Beach; I expect this drink is as close as I'll get to having the Spring Break staple at PDT.
