      That quality of balsamic vinegar is for strawberries and ice cream, not tomatoes and mozzarella.

        I love Barry's comment about the balsamic, but the thing is you can't have something identical/similar to aged balsamic vinegar because it gets to be that fabulous specifically from the particular vinegar-making process that this vinegar undergoes...and it's a long and hand-done process, which makes the end product quite expensive. The culture and heritage of making traditional balsamic vinegar of Modena (aceto balsamico tradizionale de Modena DOP) is amazing! Modena is definitely a worthwhile tour learn about this gorgeous process that results in really expensive--and wonderful--vinegar. Cheers!

          The spreadable beer sounds cool to try. On the other hand the balsamic vinegar is crazy to cost that much.

            Am I the only person who feels that asking Barry whether it's pretentious is ridiculous? I thought he only owned pretentious food.

                  Have you reviewed argan oil for cooking or finishing yet?

                  It’s expensive enough that I can’t just throw money at it and find out it’s not a good idea.

                  Thanks for considering.

                      If it's the wastage from coffee production, why is it so expensive? You could sell it like raisins

                                Coffee tea??? No thanks! But yeah, a good balsamic vinegar is worth its weight.

                                You ever thought of doing a show about fixing up leftovers? I'm single and often have tons of random items in my refrigerator, and I find it fun to put meals together from my leftovers.

                                  One Christmas I was given a bottle of true balsamic vinegar from Modena Italy. That stuff in the supermarket just doesn't carry it anymore. I only buy true balsamic from Modena. I apply it with an eyedropper, LOL! From that point on I have never looked back. It's worth every penny.

                                                When I heard the first item was a "Butter making set", I honestly went "wha-?" when I heard the first recipe.
                                                Making butter is so simple that you can basically make it by pouring some cream in a plastic bottle and shaking it vigourously for a few minutes.
                                                Look up #Buttertoastchallenge if you don't believe me.

                                                  the coffee cherries are not inherently pretentious, but charging that much for what’s normally a waste product is

                                                    everything you need to make butter:
                                                    heavy cream

                                                      I love caffeine and hate the bitterness of coffee, so the coffee cherries are probably the only one I'd get.

                                                        I remember at summer camp we made butter in cleaned out baby food jars by shaking the cream ourselves. It was actually really fun and tasted great! That butter kit is such a disappointment... I feel so bad for anyone tricked into buying it..
