Cook like a Mexican, Meat Dress, and Bacon Caramel in Today's Eater's Digest


Hungry for your early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives?

Cook Like Grandma
That is, if your grandma is Mexican. If not, learn to cook like your friend's grandma. Either way, this Friday you can learn to cook authentic Mexican Comfort Food, just like somebody's grandma used to make. North Scottsdale's Sur La Table's new Culinary Manager, Chef Anne-Marie Blanco, will be spilling the family secrets at 6:30 p.m on September 3rd. Perfect your skills by learning about the different spices used to create dishes such as Posole, Mole Sauce, Tamales, Enchiladas, and even Mocha Flan. The cost of learning to cook your own Mexican food is $69 per person. Space is limited. Click here to register.  


Nice Rack!

We're not sure if this dress belongs on Jackalope Ranch or Chow Bella, but we think any foodie with a sense of style will appreciate this cute little number we found on Etsy. The Cuts of Meat dress will inform others of where your prime cuts of meat are located. The dress is hand made to order and is available in two cute cuts. Click here to get your very own.

Bacon Caramels
Day 4 of Eater's Digest Week of Bacon (National Bacon Day is Sauturday). Today's offering is Bacon Caramels. Ashley at the blog Not Without Salt has some pretty impressive pictures of these bacon treats, and we were equally impressed by the recipe, which includes sprinkling the bacon with cayenne pepper and adding maple syrup to the caramel. Holy Yum! Check back tomorrow for Apple Bacon Fritters with Maple Bourbon Glaze.
