Fluff Fest is coming up – Saturday the 23rd – in Somerville Fuff Centennial Fest 2017
It’s been 100 years since Joseph Archibald Query created the magic that is FLUFF in his kitchen in Somerville, MA and sold it door to door.
He didn’t invent marshmallow. He just repacked and renamed it for immortality.
7 millions pounds of Fluff
were sold last year.
There is a recipe contest at the Fluff Festival..I’ve been thinking of Fluff….
I was reading Laura Shapiro’s What She Ate
In the introduction (no, she doesn’t mention Fluff….bear with me) she writes of Nell B. Nichols who published a food calendar in Woman’s Home Companion. For May 7, 1953 Nell offers a recipe that dips peanut butter sandwiches in an egg-milk batter and then fries them. That’s right – Peanut Butter Sandwich French Toast. And I thought….
That baked French Toast that I made a variation of, has been on my mind. My brain has been full of all kinds of bread and egg and milk things.
But, before I have a recipe to test, I have a few more thin gs to ponder. Like – what bread? It has to hold up, but fluffy white bread is classic for a fluffernutter…and maple syrup wouldn’t be assertive enough on top…..
Chocolate syrup on top would be better then maple. √
Or how about chocolate BREAD….now it’s officially dessert…and chocolate syrup doesn’t go on top of chocolate bread.
See – close, but no actual recipe.
Maybe next year.
