Here's lunch time in the kitchen at etsy headquarters in Brooklyn. I posted a report of my behind-the-scenes tour over at Two Shear Spirits, my much neglected blog with Joan Tapper. Go, look, read. It was peeking behind the curtain in Oz. Except without that weird wizard guy or multicolored horses. But with Toto-like dogs.

Happy Passover to those observing. I made kickass matza balls last night. I was so pleased with this particular batch I wanted to photograph them in their partially cooked glory. But, is there any cuisine less photogenic than Ashkenzaic Jewish? I'd have had to suspend operations and style them beyond reality. So, instead, here's a link about the White House seder. Growing up, this is a scene that we'd maybe imagine in a comedy sketch, in that ironic stretching the humor way. An African American president leading a seder? In the White House? Love it!
I'm making macaroons tomorrow. Maybe they'll be prettier.
