A look back at our favorite posts from 2009

Sprouts.jpg 1) Reverse-Engineered Ponzu Roasted Brussels Sprouts a la Namu: I love trying to copy a dish from a fancy restaurant. The brussels sprouts served at the Foodbuzz awards dinner were delicious, and surprisingly easy to make at home.

2) The Best of the Foodbuzz Blogger Festival: Number two in this list of the top 10 things we've blogged this year is a list of the top 10 things we blogged at the fantastic Foodbuzz food blogger festival.

3) We're On Twitter!: We may not be Ashton Kutcher - and I'm not sure I would ever want to be - but we're getting there. Checkout @guerrillatogo and follow us!Spork.jpg

4) SF Food Bank's Hunger Challenge: This project was an eye-opener, but not in the way we thought. Living on a budget of $4 per person, per day wasn't too hard - as long as you have a KitchenAid and plenty of time on your hands.

Shove it in (the new year's) face!

Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is past: time for new beginings. At Guerrilla Gourmet Headquarters, that means holiday leftovers (including a LOT of roast beef), and getting into some new stuff from Christmas. My grandmother gave me Jamie Oliver's newest book, Jamie's Food Revolution, and we're going to try a few things. I must admit that when I first paged through the book, I scoffed a bit - Jamie's Italy was full of simple, robust food and old-world technique, aren't we all past beef stew? - but I soon got off my high horse. The fact is that while I've spent this last year filling my pantry with five kinds of flour, four kinds of chili paste, and finding just the right olive oil, I've only the vaguest notion of how to make simple, comforting, inexpensive beef stew.
