The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test
"An American classic" (Newsweek) that defined a generation. “An astonishing book” (The New York Times Book Review) and an unflinching portrait of Ken Kesey, his Merry Pranksters, and the 1960s.80% (10)
They say if you remember the '60s, you weren't there. But, fortunately, Tom Wolfe was there, notebook in hand, politely declining LSD while Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters fomented revolution, turning America on to a dangerously playful way of thinking as their Day-Glo conveyance, Further, made the most influential bus ride since Rosa Parks's. By taking On the Road's hero Neal Cassady as his driver on the cross-country revival tour and drawing on his own training as a magician, Kesey made Further into a bully pulpit, and linked the beat epoch with hippiedom. Paul McCartney's Many Years from Now cites Kesey as a key influence on his trippy Magical Mystery Tour film. Kesey temporarily renounced his literary magic for the cause of "tootling the multitudes"--making a spectacle of himself--and Prankster Robert Stone had to flee Kesey's wild party to get his life's work done. But in those years, Kesey's life was his work, and Wolfe infinitely multiplied the multitudes who got tootled by writing this major literary-journalistic monument to a resonant pop-culture moment.
Kesey's theatrical metamorphosis from the distinguished author of One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest to the abominable shaman of the "Acid Test" soirees that launched The Grateful Dead required Wolfe's Day-Glo prose account to endure (though Kesey's own musings in Demon Box are no slouch either). Even now, Wolfe's book gives what Wolfe clearly got from Kesey: a contact high. --Tim Appelo
pancakes & homemade bacon
BEST BUTTERMILK PANCAKES Makes sixteen 4-inch pancakes; Serves 4 to 6. Published July 1, 2009. From Cook's Illustrated. The pancakes can be cooked on an electric griddle. Set the griddle temperature to 350 degrees and cook as directed. The test kitchen prefers a lower-protein all-purpose flour like Gold Medal or Pillsbury. If you use an all-purpose flour with a higher protein content, like King Arthur, you will need to add an extra tablespoon or two of buttermilk. INGREDIENTS 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (10 ounces) (see note) 2 tablespoons sugar 1/2 teaspoon table salt 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 2 cups buttermilk 1/4 cup sour cream 2 large eggs 3 tablespoon unsalted butter , melted and cooled slightly 1 - 2 teaspoons vegetable oil INSTRUCTIONS 1.. 1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 200 degrees. Spray wire rack set inside baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray; place in oven. Whisk flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda together in medium bowl. In second medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, sour cream, eggs, and melted butter. Make well in center of dry ingredients and pour in wet ingredients; gently stir until just combined (batter should remain lumpy with few streaks of flour). Do not overmix. Allow batter to sit 10 minutes before cooking. 2.. 2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Using paper towels, carefully wipe out oil, leaving thin film of oil on bottom and sides of pan. Using ? cup measure, portion batter into pan in 4 places. Cook until edges are set, first side is golden brown, and bubbles on surface are just beginning to break, 2 to 3 minutes. Using thin, wide spatula, flip pancakes and continue to cook until second side is golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Serve pancakes immediately, or transfer to wire rack in preheated oven. Repeat with remaining batter, using remaining oil as necessary. TECHNIQUE Ensuring Tender Texture Too much gluten development in pancake batter is the enemy of tender texture. Here's how to keep it in check. KEEP IT LUMPY, THEN LET IT REST Mixing encourages gluten to form. For best results, whisk the batter briefly and don't smooth out the lumps. Then, let the batter rest for 10 minutes-this allows the gluten to relax, yielding more tender pancakes. RECIPE TESTING Baking Soda's Browning Boost We've always heard that baking soda boosts browning. For this reason, even when we found the high concentration of acid in our pancake batter (from both buttermilk and sour cream) was over-reacting with the baking soda, causing our pancakes to rise too high and then deflate, we still left this leavener in. But would taking baking soda out really be so bad if it led to fluffier pancakes? EXPERIMENT We mixed two batches of pancake batter-one leavened with baking powder and baking soda; the second leavened with baking powder alone-and cooked pancakes from each batter side by side. RESULTS Pancakes made without baking soda not only lacked color, they lacked flavor, tasting unacceptably bland. The pancakes leavened with both baking powder and baking soda cooked up deeply golden with rich, nutty flavor. EXPLANATION When baking soda (an alkali) meets up with buttermilk and sour cream (acids), two things happen. The baking soda reacts immediately to produce tiny carbon dioxide bubbles that leaven the batter, but can go into overdrive the more acid that's present. At the same time, it neutralizes the batter's acidity to create a more alkaline environment that promotes browning and the creation of hundreds of new flavor compounds. These new flavor compounds are what make pancakes taste far more complex and interesting. THE BOTTOM LINE For better flavor, the baking soda would have to stay in. To ensure fluffy pancakes from batch to batch, we'd have to adjust both its amount and the amount of baking powder.Fiddleheads Are the Unfurled Fronds Of A Young Fern
The fiddlehead, unrolls as the fern emerges from the ground with new growth. As fiddleheads are harvested early in the black season before the frond has opened and reached its full height, they are cut fairly close to the ground. Ostrich ferns are also known as fiddlehead ferns. Fiddleheads are a traditional dish of northern New England in the United States, and of Quebec and the Maritimes in Canada. The Canadian village of Tide Head, New Brunswick, bills itself as the Fiddlehead Capital of the World. Fiddleheads have been part of traditional diets in much of Northern France since the beginning of the middle ages, as well as among Native Americans Agriculture Canada reports that scientists are just discovering how nutritious fiddleheads are …..even better than blueberries, the gold standard for antioxidants. They have found that fiddleheads are twice as strong as blueberries with regard to antioxidant activity. Test results also showed that fiddleheads are packed with the nutrient omega-3 fatty acids. Fiddleheads are a good source of dietary fibre. They are low in sodium, and contain vitamins A and C, niacin, potassium, phosphorus, iron, and magnesium. The fiddlehead resembles the curled scroll on the end of a stringed instrument, such as a violin. It is also called a crozier, after the curved staff used by bishops, which has its origins in the shepherd's crook.
