Our friend Bethany is a classic leftover hater. She doesn't want anything the next day, especially if it's restaurant fare, and by the third day you'd swear she'd seen black mold ! But in raw foods, leftovers are nature's true charm and blessing. Life is just a glorified salad, and a few tupperwares of last night's meal can creatively combine to transform and tickle yr taste buddies. It's yr food part two. Sunday night we catered an awesome party at LA's Brewery for some smashing/smashed guests. The finale: fresh organic strawberries in a melty cacao fondue. When the strawberries were no more, that fondue pot went straight into my freezer. But what to do once you've done the fondue? Come midnight Monday, and Britt was predicting some fudgey bites for our coming election coverage. We got that fondue fon-did out of the freezer, waited for it to soften and began dunking in raisins and raw brazil nuts, macademias, and walnuts. Just like in politics, you can't be afraid to get a bit messy. Back in the freezer and ready for us to delight in during Obama's acceptance speech in Chicago. Chocolatey, sweet and rich ! Like our president elect !
