Perfect. Manhattan needs The Trad Restaurant. Hope Danny Meyer sees this post.

The legend grows.

Nice - I do the same with mashed potatoes and a beautiful Egly Ouriet Blanc de Noir

J.P. said...

That is brilliant.

When I first read this I was tempted to ask "Were you high when you thought this up"? On further review I think the appropriate question is "With whom were you getting high when you thought this up"?

McDonalds? Are you f*cking kidding us?

Total prole-food.

I'm hating it.

Giuseppe said...

You're a savage!

Keep it up.

RulingPart said...

Dear God... I can say without the slightest touch of irony that this is the greatest blog post I have ever read. I danced to that song for like an hour.

I salute you, sir. I salute you.

I'm a fookin' Philistine by comparison, Tintin. That is bloody brill.

Have you thought about tagging some posts Trailer Trad?

Fat Friend- Don't knock this until you're tried it.

Silk Reg- I think so. The trick is to doctor them while they're still warm.

Anon- No, but it seems you're not the only one who thinks so.

M Lane- I knew I could count on you. It beats catsup.

Anon Eng Female- I think I stole this from Danny.

Trailer Trad- While I grow poor.

KA Adams- I will try that!

JP- I'm glad someone thinks so.

BigDaddyMan- High? Do you know how old I am?

LB Fogey- Not kidding. More prole stuff to come plus lots of jazz and Mad Men. Perhaps you should shove off.

Giuseppe- Up there soon. Will email you.

Ruling Part- From the Loteria de la Cumbia Lounge CD that DB turned me onto. It's great stuff to eat fries and drink champagne to. And like the best things in life - - it doesn't fit into any category.

Ben- I think it's genius. Until Stew comes along and educates me. Which I hope he will.

Anon- Double Wide Trad sounds better but thanks for the idea. Later this week we'll explore dessert options with Sealtest vanilla ice milk and Twinkies covered covered in a balsamic reduction.

Theo said...

love the best things in life/doesn't fit allegory, though i'm trying to remember how that saying finishes, it starts something like, "you can polish a turd...

You're right, it's a category buster! I'll take it, though. Kudos to the idea, execution, and the nicely styled photos.

I can just picture grating cheese to the song the way you would use a Puerto Rican guiro (hollow gourd stick rubbing musical instrument).

Great point, Trader; I should try oysters with creme anglaise so that I can knock them after I've recovered...

I detect the baleful influence of Vulagria.

Fatfriend.

Main Line Sportsman said...

Splendid video...but I wish the camera stayed on that hottie dancer rather than the sweaty visage of the lead singer.
Truffle oil can improve nearly anthing...as can a grate of cheese. Cheers.

tintin said...

Theo- Dunno. I was always bad at fractions.

DB- Something like that. Thanks for the introduction to Charanaga and EBTG and Kodachrome and Leica and A Edgeworth and...

Fatfriend-
Long ago in the 18th Centuty and before the American War for Independence, American colonists would travel to London and getting off the boat they would be ridiculed for their dress by London's all purpose fashion elite. This is well documented in numerous texts.

It didn't matter what the Americans did - there was always the snubbing. It continues to this day through all kinds of good natured ribbing in front of the Septics and a sour grapes resentment behing our backs. Usually because American fridges are larger than most London flats.

It must be genetic. A shame really. Nothing a little more land and a proper dentist couldn't cure. Have a good day.

Brummagem Joe said...

"Usually because American fridges are larger than most London flats."

American heads are bigger than London flats! It's that the Brits resent. For such a dedicated Anglophile you're demonstrating some serious anti Limey prejudices there Tintin. The Brit's problem is they essentially created the modern world and can't get over the fact they don't own it anymore.

Brummagem Joe said...

The recipe has been recorded. I'll try it in the next week or two with some of my less boring friends.

Old School Prep said...

An interesting Sunday bruch fare. As George Herbert wrote "Living well is the best revenge"

Laguna Beach Fogey said...

When can we expect a post from you celebrating the complex interplay of flavour and texture in that great trailer trash contribution to the American diet, the Hostess Ho-Ho?

tintin said...

Joe- I am an Anglophile. And an Italiaphile and a Francophile and...I suppose I don't belong to anything which is why I like so many different things.

Having worked with the English for 22 years, being called 'Donkey' ("your my beast of burden") and listening to how they talk of others (if they're saying this about him - what are they saying about me?) I still admire them. Even Fatfriend

To the naysayers: McDonald's fry the best fries. Just ask Eric Ripert.

tintin said...

TT- Thank you. If you're ever in town it's my treat at the Pop Tart store.

Stew- Great minds, baby. Great minds...Check this fast food - wine pairing. I wish she covered Taco Bell.

TRVS said...

This post confirms that you can no longer use "calories" as an excuse to abandon "The Friday Belt" and I can't believe you wasted that bubbly on McDonalds fries...at least the cheese was worthy...(but I'm sure it was heaven (all gourmet~protocol aside....)

Sunny Fong said...

I'm impressed and disgusted at the same time.

I just ate KFC with a homemade caprese salad.
