Au Jus

Yes, we know: “Au Jus” means “with juice,” and occa­sion­al­ly you see a menu with prime rib or a French dip sand­wich say­ing “With Au Jus.” If you’re the kind of wiseass who has to say, “Oh, it comes WITH WITH  juice?” try not to imag­ine going to Coci­na Kitchen Restau­rant on the cor­ner of Table Mesa Road and Plaza Square Dri­ve after stop­ping at the auto­mat­ic ATM machine. It’ll be messy if your head explodes.

Real Live Honest-to-Louvre French Baguette

Mak­ing bread isn’t dif­fi­cult. Mak­ing baguette with that crisp, deep gold­en-brown crust and chewy insides with skil­lions of holes—it’s a chal­lenge. But the ingre­di­ents aren’t fan­cy or expen­sive: Yeast, flour, salt, water. You can afford some tri­al and error, and the end result is worth it!
