Taster’s Cherce

Because he’s not a guy who craves praise, I haven’t written about how much my pal Brad Lappin has done for the Banter. Let’s just say–in Damon Runyon terms–it’s more than somewhat. But now I’ve got a reason to share some news about Brad with you and there ain’t nuthin’ he can do about it.

This piece in the Denver Post says it all.

Well, almost all. You’ll want to watch this video, too. (And dig the recipe here.)

Needless to say if you find yourself in the Bolder-Denver area, check out the Bohemian Biergarten if you want to have a kick-ass soft pretzel.

I won’t lye.

Drool. I could live (and die) on pretzels and beer.

Bring yer pretzels to northern NJ, Brad, you'll be a zillionaire in no time!

And thanks fer the recipe, Alex. I'll try to make 'em myself, but I bet it's tricker than following the steps to create pretzel perfection.

Brad has sent The Wife and me some of his food--baked goods--and they are tremendous. I've never had one of his pretzels but I agree: Drrrrooool.

Awesome guy. Amazing pretzels! Some day we'll say we knew him when . . .

[1] I grew up in northern NJ, but I don't think you'll ever get me back there. But if you go to make pretzels and need help, Alex can get you in touch with me.

[2][3] Thank you, Alex and Wife. You two are Das Best.

Didn't know he went to CIA. Figgers. Don't forget the mustard. Went to Penn. Brother went to F & M. Like Pizza. All good. Some better than others. Wonder if with the passage of time, people will be spreading Gray Poupon on the beasts?
