We have started a new column over at Serious Eats. We are taking a look at our favorite dishes, taking their essence for inspiration, adding our insights, and reinventing the original. We are playing with food in order to extract maximum flavor and create something deliciously different and familiar, all at the same time. Our first project was strawberry shortcake. We re-imagined the biscuit, amped up the strawberries, and clarified the flavor of the cream. Take a look at the reasoning and recipes over at Serious Eats.
