well, sort of. I made a burger last night and it was ridiculous bordering on obscene. Here’s why. I got an iSi thingie for my birthday. I’m celebrating my birthday this week in general. Lots of years I haven’t been all that excited about it. In fact when I was turning thirty I had negative birthdays for a few years until my sister said it had to stop. This year I can lean in to tell you that I’m just not that fussed about it. It’s not a milestone year where I feel like I haven’t achieved something and in that, I’ve achieved everything. I don’t have to worry about the haves or have nots, the I have it and you don’ts or the don’t you wish yous. I’m just me and I’m pretty great. Anyway, Z is a total joy to have buying me loot because he gets so excited about it that he can’t not give me whatever comes in the mail and a few days ago a household sized iSi cream dispenser and charges came to our doorstep. So, what to do other than pull out Richard Blais’ cookbook, Try This At Home and make a modified cheddar cheese version of this Cheese Wizard to put on sherry braised onion and bacon burgers. So, basically the long and short of it is I melted cheddar in heavy cream, chilled it and charged it with nitrous oxide into foam which I sprayed on a BURGER. Obscene. No one needs that-but it was fun and I’ll probably do it again and add cayenne so it is more like pimiento cheese because that would be awesome. Happy birthday to me!
