Savor This With Your Olympic Games


Have you been tuning in to the Olympics?

Some of the most exciting events thus far include the giant slalom, and ice skating. We might consider making our participants dress up in strange outfits and skate around a roller rink to a Michael Jackson montage (just kidding).

We can’t help but root for American Ted Ligety, who won a Gold in the men’s giant slalom. Not to mention Yuna Kim of South Korea, who had her hopes for a gold medal dashed by 17 year old Russian skater Adelina Sotnikova, but still managed to pull off the Silver Medal.

Consider enjoying this recipe as you watch the Olympics on a Thursday night. It comes from one of our staff members’ personal collection. We’ve named it the smooth slalom in honor of Ted’s victory. Or you could just call it what it is.
