The past 24 hours have brought us two posts: One dealing with Avenues’ bread service (there are five different sorts, ranging from a “breakable” Italian to a sweet coconut-basil waffle), and one highlighting hato mugi, a barley-like grain that Duffy uses in a risotto preparation that’s accompanied by manchego tea.
We’re excited to see Duffy’s blog reanimated, and we remain amused by its header: a moody portrait of the chef pulling his best Keanu Reeves face, that is so tall that it requires a scrolldown to get to the first post.
We’re also reminded of the first thought we have upon seeing the DuffyBlog: What is up with chefs and their affinity for dark backgrounds? Duffy’s mid-gray echoes the muted tones of the L2O blog, and Philip Foss goes with a dense, dark blue-gray. Great minds?
