t says: Our newest castmember, bw, has been showing off quite a baking repertoire over the past 6 or so months.  But this time … he made a dish especially for me.  Ok, that’s totally not true, but it might as well have been – look at it:


bacon cheddar scones!

Ok … so … I don’t want to offend bw with this next statement, but I have to say it: it reminds me of a McDonald’s bacon egg and cheese biscuit.  Well – but it’s better!  It doesn’t have that mouth-coating-grease sensation, but packs a wollop of bacon and cheddar in a nice airy scone (and I didn’t even get ’em straight from the oven!).  Now I know what you’re thinking: “t … you like everything with bacon … so this isn’t fair”.    I figured you’d say that … so I brought out the one pig-eating person who doesn’t feel that bacon automatically increases deliciousness: g.  g ate hers in 60 seconds flat.  Afterwards she proclaimed, “wow – this is way better than at Bouchon Bakery”.

WHOA.  Hey there now.  Did she just go there?  Did bw just take down Thomas Keller?  Yea he did.

After her comment, I brought her attention to the truth: bw actually used the recipe from Bouchon Bakery cookbook (probably reproduced accurately here)!  So … bw versus full-time paid professionals … and bw for the win!  We tried to figure out how/why this could happen.  g suspected that it was due to the larger bacon pieces and larger size of the scone, allowing it to have more substance in the center.  I feel that bw’s was seasoned more aggressively, with brighter chives.  Well, whatever it was, we give him an A+!  And … because [according to TK] “you really only begin to learn the second time you prepare a dish” … we eagerly await the second time … although not too soon: my cholesterol levels are still recuperating from the 2.5 I ate this time …
