Bay Area Blogger of the Week #20


We will not be using any buzzwords here,
but we will be sure to get a buzz on

This week I bring to you Dr Five Pints, who I didn't get to meet properly at the recent Foodbloggers' Picnic and I have since been kicking myself. I had never even really heard of the Dr before the picnic, so I went to check out his blog and see what he was about. When I did, I had a wonderful surprise waiting for me. He is crazy about Dutch Ovens. Really. It's not a common thing in the Bay Area so I am intrigued by the unlikliness of it all. Dr 5 P's entered a Dutch Oven Contest up in Oregon at the beginning of August. You just have to check out the post titled Oh, oh, the Wells Fargo Wagon is uh... which is currently the second one down the page. (Five Pints' permalinks seem to be broken). Dr Five Pints and his lady walked off with first prize for dessert, second prize for bread and people's choice for cleanliest camp. Overall they won second place. Marvellous stuff. A whole new world of opportunity. Check him out and don't forget to say hello...

    Isn't a Dutch Oven something that happens under the duvet after a curry? ;-)

    Yup, I have to chime in and say Five P. has been a lot of fun. There's a slice of that man that cuts like a razor when countered. The fun factor is high, yet he's got both feet on the ground and can do what he did with the dutch oven cookoff. He and I jacked in mostly because we're nearly in the same neighborhood and have been frequenting the local restaurants for years.
    Five P and a gaggle of local goofs attended a local Mexican restaurant that's been in play since the late 1940s, an incredible place. Here's my rendition, you'll catch Pints Five doing the Pim Shot:

    Pints of Five totally deserves this recognition.

    This is fascinating, when I consider that Clotilde is writing on her Paris blog about her cocotte and I thought,
    "Hmmm -- I use a doufeau," (an enamel
    cast iron pot that's round instead of oval) and we're all talking about cooking in HEAVY duty equipment that has been used for centuries....Let us all put this together with being conscious of our sources and try some slow food cooking for a change.

    Dr. Five Pints, ironically, is my new favorite person.

    "There's a slice of that man that cuts like a razor when countered." Dr. Biggles
    and this is my favorite sentence.

    It's great that you've featured him! I think that we will need to have a fall food bloggers picnic and we will need a demonstration of his Dutch Oven Baklava!!

    Oh my, oh my, I never even knew about this mention! Would you believe I found it by searching for 'bay area dutch oven' on the big G and this was the first match?

    Thank you all for your words. I too regret not spending more time with the beautiful Sam but I did have a smoke and a convo with the entertaining Fred, though my French wasn't great that day. Dsl.

    I will have to frequent Becks and Posh more ...umm... frequently. Ironically the post I put up today is about Dutch oven cooking.

    OH and who is this Dr. Jones guy? I'm the same Dr. of which you spake. I simply reverted to my usual nickname a few months ago.
