Ooh la la! Les macarons! vine.co/v/bpZQ6BziXnv
— Linda S. Kwan (@Cakebrain) March 17, 2013

This is my first time using The Vine App: 6 second looping videos.   I’m still not sure whether I like this over still shots. It gets me all dizzy watching the looping videos. Perhaps I need to work on my perspective and filming techniques. You can create stop-motion or short video clips. I think this could be a good thing if I can improve my filming techniques.

Well, you know how they say a picture conveys a thousand words?  Perhaps video can convey even more? What do you think?

By the way…no I did not eat all these meals in one day! It was over the course of the weekend :p
Spring Break is here!  Time to continue my exploration of more Vancouver patisseries!  Will be back with more.

Let me know what you think of this new way of exploring foodie Vancouver?

I get this feeling that this new medium for communication in social media may be the next big thing.  It’s easy, it doesn’t clog up your device, and there’s so much potential for creativity.  Mind you it has just as much potential to wreak havoc and be super irritating…Just a feeling.  I will be posting Vine clips all Spring Break and see what I feel at the end of my experiment.

Be sure to click on the “unmute” button on each to hear sound if you wish.  Especially neat is hearing the Water Spinach sizzling in the hot pot clip 🙂

5-Minute Fisherman’s Stew – Give or Take

Of course this Fisherman’s Stew takes more than five minutes to make, and I’m actually referring to the approximate cooking time once the seafood hits the pan, but as they say, it’s only false advertising if someone else does it. Besides, one taste and I’m sure you’ll forgive any temporal […]

Pear Clafoutis – Almost as Good as it Looks

It sounds odd to say that a recipe’s biggest problem is that it looks too good, but that’s sort of the case with this pear clafoutis. Through no fault of its own, this crust-less, custard fruit tart looks a lot sweeter, and richer than it actually is. So, please be […]

Bloody Mary Burrata – An Experiment in Liquefying Salads

I don’t think there’s actually a difference between a liquid salad, and a cold vegetable soup, but if there is, I’d like this Bloody Mary Burrata recipe to be considered the former. Especially since I already posted a gazpacho this summer. But regardless of what you call this strange hybrid, […]

Crispy Butcher’s Nuggets – Parts is Parts

Chef John is On Vacation and More

That’s right! I’m on vacation for the rest of the week, and the beginning of the next, which usually means a lot of rest and relaxation, but not this time. That’s because Michele and I are going to be working harder than ever on a major, top secret personal project. […]
