Garbage Cake

We’ve got some great hot topics this time. We discuss mainstream America’s newfound love of moonshine, the entrance of female sushi chefs into the male-dominated culinary profession in Japan, waste in kitchens, alt-pastas, and the fad of gluten-hating. Danielle talks us through her latest creations — Dr. Seuss cakes! She also runs down a few of Norfolk’s best eateries, Alkaline, Toast, Waffletina, and Stove. You won’t want to miss her story about a restaurant called Monks in the middle of nowhere — think Sons of Anarchy with food. Sherród’s been cooking some naughty things: cinnamon buns, yok, and a new kind of ice cream. We finish by teasing something upcoming…you’ll have to hang on a little while longer.

If you’ll be in Raleigh for the NC Restaurant and Lodging Expo (www.ncrl-expo.com), we’d love to meet up! Drop us a line at hello@sliceandtorte.com or hit us up on facebook: www.facebook.com/sliceandtorte.
