Media Mentions: Sweet & Salty Craze, eBay Gourmet

Check out two new food articles I wrote!

Pastry chef Nicole Kaplan makes salted “s’mores.”

“The Rise of the Salt Tooth” –

What does salt do for sugar, and who’s making salty desserts? (For the record, I’m not a fan of overtly salty desserts. Berthillon’s salted caramel ice cream in Paris is smoky and deep, but the salt gets in the way. Coppeneur makes complex, high cacao milk chocolate, but it’s a shame it tastes salty. Low-brow salty sweets, like the Take 5 candy bar, work though. The combination of salty pretzels, caramel, peanut butter and milk chocolate is addictive. Maybe I’m having a foodie backlash.)

“Whatever it is, you can eat it on eBay” – AP

The media’s been touching on mail-order desserts, from the difficulty of trusting something you can’t sample to professional chefs who’ve flocked to the Internet. For the AP, I wrote about homemade food that’s appearing on eBay. If you’ve ever wanted chokecherry jelly or handmade fudge from a congressman’s mom, you can get it on eBay. Buyer beware though…the samples I received were disappointing at best.
