Potent Potables

One of the joys of moving to a New Place is in the discovery of new foods. There are few better locales for such discoveries than Portland, ME. As it happens, Portland is my most recent New Place, after leaving sunny Burlington, Vermont. Anecdotally, Portland has almost as many places to eat as San Francisco. What better environment to re-launch one of my favorite categories?

That’s right, today we welcome the return of the long lost food category. We’ll see where it goes, but let’s start with something short and sweet.

How to cut a mango

It’s Mango season, so I’ll kick us off with one of my favorite instructional videos, How to Cut a Mango.

I think I originally found this on Lifehacker, and there are a few variations mentioned in that thread that might be worth a shot (I like the idea of the straw technique).

    @Steve Cavrak – That’s a pretty impressive technique. I think I would need a lot of training, though, in order to avoid injuring anyone (at the very least!).
