You know how one generation finds things that they think are “new” and it’s really just a retread from two generations back? Kind of like how the 20-somethings these days are drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon and Manhattans like my grandfather did? Well, the same goes for food, I guess, and it seems that that scary obsession of mine is making a comeback: Scary Gelatin Recipes
I was looking through the latest issue of Saveur magazine and there, on page 36 was the first photo of a vegetable-suspended-in-gelatin-loaf recipe that has been published in the last 40 years. Accompanying such photo was a glowing and rather romantic essay touting the beauty of this disgusting product.
I try and think of myself as a foodie, but I’m sorry – I can’t eat this crap – I don’t care if Grant Achatz himself made it. Jello is a nothing short of gross and is good for nothing other than delivering Everclear into your body via a paper cup. The End.
See Saveur article here, along with recipe for above “Perfection Salad.”
