Red Bang Bang

                Based on the recommendation of my son I visited Red Bang Bang which just opened on West Maxwell across from the Tin Roof .   Nice looking store, slick contemporary branding and an interesting menu concept whereby you order by the scoop .

Flavored Cane Sugar at Stuatos

              This afternoon I visited the Stuarto's Olive Oil store on Euclid Avenue in Chevy Chase ( Lexington, KY ) and discovered that they now carry a line of flavored cane sugars .    Some of the flavors are ginger and habenaro .     The store manager Kellie did a great job sharing some samples to taste and also mix with some of the flavored salts .    This one additonal ingredient added to their olive oils, balsamic vinagars, and sea salts really opens up some cool uses of the products used in combination with each other .   This could even include ways to flavor drinks , etc..
