Starting a new job is always awkward… you are introduced to everyone in a blur, shown around the office and then left alone to start working… But overtime, you start to get to know your co-workers and the awkwardness fades… especially, when you discover a shared love for Food 52.
My current co-worker, Megan (or meganvt01) is the creator of Roasted Sunchokes of Hazelnut Gremolata. I was excited for this random connection. I had already bookmarked the recipe to make later. Now, besides talking about law, we can discuss food!
Another Food 52 recipe that I love is Grown-up Birthday Cake. I wanted to make something for my mom’s birthday that was different and new. She makes so many cakes that this one needed to be special. The cake was delicious. I made the cake as written except I used vegetable oil and not olive oil. I iced it with a vanilla buttercream and filled with a homemade peach-vanilla jam. The wine gave the cake layers a really subtle fruity flavor without overpowering. It was really special!
