Salt Cod Fritters with Spicy Ketchup and Tartar Sauce – Eastern Standard, Boston

The fritters are wonderful, by the way.  I tried them the first time I ever went to ES (two years ago) and they were so-so.  I don’t know if it was a bad batch or a bad recipe, but I was too distracted by clear winners on the menu to ever order it again.  I noticed a few reviews recently that mentioned them, and I figured I’d give em another shot.  I took my camera ’cause I figured if I didn’t like em, at least I’d have a good picture for anyone who was curious.  After a long (and exausting) photoshoot, I tucked into one of the (still hot!) fritters and proceeded to devour them all before they had a chance to cool.  I was shocked by how much difference there was from my first experience two years ago.  This time they were very air-y, with a crunchy thin shell with very light insides.  They tend to be addictive.

    Super Photos. We are having a great Wine Festival in Naples this weekend .

  2. Im glad you liked em. I think they still need a bit of editing, but I’m still learning.
    Enjoy the festival — send some pictures!

  3. Thats quite a list of celebrity chefs!
    Are they all in attendance?

    All chefs are here in Naples. There will be intimate dinners at 18 homes and the Ritz.We will not be one of the 500 attendees as the minimum cost is $7500 per couple. Ed

  5. $7500? wow.
    That almost 4 million coming in!!
    At least it’s for a good cause: ” Beneficiaries: Proceeds benefit the Naples Children and Education Foundation, whose vision is to make a profound and sustaining difference in the quality of children’s lives. NCEF is committed to supporting charitable programs that improve the physical, emotional and educational lives of underprivileged and at-risk children in Collier County. Since its inception in 2001, the Naples Winter Wine Festival has raised $38.8 million for children in need, with a record $12.2 million raised under the auction tent in 2006.”
