Those Other Tortillas

I know we’ve done flour tortillas on the blog, but I’ve not yet attempted the far more intimidating corn version. Why do they scare me so? I’m not sure, but it’s a real problem. Anyway, one of these days I’ll muster up the courage to give it a go, but in the meantime, here’s a demo from my buddies at Allrecipes.com showing the basic method. Can it really be this easy? Enjoy!

Chef John’s Taking a Break!

One of the things I love about my partnership with Allrecipes.com is that they actually make me take these things called, “vacations.” Apparently these periodic breaks are quite common in corporate America, and supposedly help the employee relax, rest, and recharge. Since I’m going to be golfing, that’s not going to happen, but still, I appreciate the time.

I’ll be off for a week, and by “off,” I really mean “off.” While comments will be published, I will not be monitoring the blog while out, so when it comes to cooking questions, you’ll be at the mercy of fellow foodwishers and Google. Good luck with that. Anyway, I hope you have a great Thanksgiving, and I look forward to getting back to work next week. Enjoy!

Chef John is Taking a (Real) Spring Break!

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be leaving Monday for
Arizona’s Valley of the Sun, for a week of baseball, golf, and not working on a
video recipe blog. I’ve done a ton of traveling since I started this blog, but
never actually gone off-line during any of these “breaks.” 

No matter where I’ve gone, or what I was doing, I’d find a
few hours late at night to jump on the laptop to catch up on emails, answer
blog comments, and crush trolls on YouTube. However, this time I’m planning on
going completely “unplugged.”

My friend Anna from Allrecipes.com will be moderating the
blog, fielding your questions, and generally keeping an eye on you until I get
back. I’m sure you’ll treat her with the same good cheer that you show me, and
other than being much less of a smartass, you really shouldn’t notice much of a

Despite my great escape to land of the well tanned, we’ll
still be posting two brand new videos this week, including a recipe that’s been
one of the most requested food wishes of all time. So, stay tuned for that, have
fun while I’m gone, and as always, enjoy!
