Eli reviews DuClaw, and more from the blogs and beyond

foam► Eli reviews DuClaw on Adventures of a Koodie, and he's handing out stars like a kindergarten teacher. "It was crowded!It also smelled like beer," Eli writes.

He liked his dinner, but did he find DuClaw to be kid friendly? (Adventures of a Koodie).

I am okay with knowing that I am the only person on Earth who, every times he hears DuClaw, thinks of Louise DuArt.

The Crab Cake recipe sounds very good, except for the 'green onions'. Please green onions don't belong in a Crab Cake, IMHO.

Can't wait for Eli's review of Club Charles

Jack - I agree about the green onions not belonging. My recipe also includes a good dash of Worchestershire sauce and some Old Bay. I know that it is cliche to use the Old Bay, but IMO the crab cakes just don't taste right without it.

Wow, I wonder if this is an original recipe? I use the same recipe and got it from my America's Test Kitchen cookbook. Green onion tastes fantastic in crab cakes. I've tried dozens of recipes from America's Test Kitchen and they haven't failed me yet.
