Today I wanted to share one of my favorite sites with you: it's called Naughty Curry, and it's all about cooking with spices. It's written by four girls (excuse me - ladies? women? hotties?) from New York, who write each entry as if it was a story. They re-create recipes from dishes they enjoyed at a restaurant, or they invent their own, or they adapt recipes from cookbooks, and then they post dialogue and conversation about what happened along the way.
On their About page, the girls say that "the Naughty Curry project is a creative rebellion against blandness." I say: Bravo! It's so nice to see something completely fresh and different out there. Oh, and I like the word "naughty." Anything with "naughty" in the name is worth checking out.
They are very funny, but they are passionate about food, and they often raise questions like: Is it worth the extra time to soak rice? and Is the Great Madhur Jaffrey REALLY all that?. They take the time to note when it is important to toast spices, and they give a lot of information on shopping for ingredients.
So go ahead... be naughty!
