Today, I was very proud for the company to support an author visit by Bora Chung at SIS, my alma mater. We’d facilitated the introduction and supplied copies of her most notable book Cursed Bunny.
Previously, we’d supported Bora’s visit at SFS (see 13.309 Roast Chicken with Mashed Potatoes in Gravy and Buttered Vegetables), though then only the books.
I love this part of my job.
In line with my experiments last year to make burgers with short-cut proteins – oh my god, I can’t believe that nearly 10 months have passed since the last one (see most recently 13.145 Cheese Ham-Burger) – I tried tacos this time with mini shrimp cakes.
Unfortunately, the shrimp cakes were quite crappy, with neither the taste nor texture of real shrimp.
Also, working with corn tortillas for only the 2nd time ever (see previously 1.310 Grilled Chicken Tacos), I still couldn’t get them soft and pliable, despite trying various suggestions on the internet.
