Just a quick post... The second installment of the NY trip should be ready tomorrow.
I'm currently watching The Best Thing I Ever Ate on Food Network—chocolate episode—and this little beauty showed up. It turns out, one of Tyler Florence's favorite chocolatey things was part of our rehearsal dinner at Buckeye Roadhouse back in 2008. (He's a Marin guy, so a lot of his favorite stuff is in SF or just North in Marin Country.)
The funny part? I didn't eat any of this at the rehearsal dinner, because it had nuts in it. I didn't want to get sick the night before my wedding... BUT... They showed the chef at Buckeye making it, and the nuts were toasted almonds. I totally could have eaten it!
If you didn't get the memo via Flickr, I'm not actually allergic to almonds. I plan to write an actual blog post about that soon, along with my macaron obsession.
I guess I'll have to try the pie if we go to Buckeye Roadhouse again sometime.
