The secret to Bill Corbett's smoked apple tart? A delicious combination of caramel, apples, shortbread dough, and crunchy hazelnut candy. Oh, and the ability to construct an impromptu smoker from a couple of pans and some Cling Wrap.
'Absinthe' on Serious Eats
This year my Halloween costume was a bit of a bust. I dressed up as the Green Fairy, intending for people to make the connection between the Green Fairy, which is a nickname for Absinthe, and my boyfriend's costume as a 19th century, bohemian French painter. Everyone thought I was Tinkerbell. On the positive side, I was left with a bottle of Absinthe which we had bought to "add authenticity" to our costumes.
