  • Morning Coffee: Rescuing a broken emulsion


    I’ve made various versions of Zankou Chicken‘s fabulous garlic spread, but when I made it yesterday, the emulsion of oil and lemon juice broke! I found only suggestions for fixing an emulsion for mayo (add another egg yolk), but not for other emulsions. I was desperate (and couldn’t bring myself to start over again), so I added some cannellini beans to the blender and got a nicely textured spread that tasted like the garlic-lemon flavor I was going for, just with extra protein. Whew!
