Leopold's sausage and kraut (photo by Ed Anderson)
It's been 12 months of good eating. After reviewing all my past blogs, I've pulled out some—though clearly not all—of the most delicious dishes from 2011 and listed them in no particular order. A couple are new discoveries to me (see L'Ardoise), some are rediscoveries (see Kiss), but most are new as of this year.
I'm not much for sentiment or sap, pink or lace, carnations or roses, but Valentine's Day does one thing that I'm all about: Sugar. These locally-made treats have been taste-tested and approved by myself and a bevy of very enthusiastic 7x7 editors.
