Although not usually one for alcohol brand-loyalty, I was recently introduced (by a very excited bartender) to the life-changing distillery/high-concept, Walter Benjamin-worshiping art collective Art in the Age. More specifically, I was introduced to Art in the Age’s Root Liquor, a long-lost recipe passed down from Native Americans to Settlers and eventually forgotten during prohibition. Made with Sassafras, Sarsaparilla, and Birch Bark, it is essentially 80-proof root beer, and tastes just like it sounds (perfect. it tastes perfect).

We stopped in to try out some of his new fall menu at Rex 1516, and fell in love with the Scotch duck egg for it’s visual appeal as much as how much fun it is to eat. Instead of a puny chicken egg, a robust duck ovum is wrapped inside Tasso ham and then breaded and deep fried. Served with a creole mustard sauce and bits of fried sage, it’s more filling than it looks and is actually a deal at $7 for the plate.

I switched headgear a few months ago from a feathered fascinator to general contractor’s hard hat, and since then I haven’t had nearly as much time in the kitchen as I would like. And no, this isn’t some twisted chef’s hat version of YMCA, although if you keep reading, things do get kinky.
