White nectarine blackberry galette with noyu ice cream and unsweetened brandy-spiked whipped cream.
A grilled whole salmon that I caught in the ocean.
Thick ribeye steaks. With corn on the cob, summer squash and eggplant for balance.
Prime standing rib roast. Oh yeah.
My mother hates to cook, always has, always will and hates baking even more so it's really what desserts they like *me* to make. ;-) One of her favorites is a mandarin orange torte. I can't get it exactly like they do in Germany, but it's close and tastes good.
Vanilla with butterscotch ganache frosting.
Pickled vegetables with my own red wine vinegar which is so far my most successful cultured item.
Barbecued brisket and chicken friend steak.
Combination meat (sausage, pepperoni, salami) is his favorite but he always gets the kitchen sink with artichokes, mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, and olives because that's what my mom likes. Poor guy.
Fresh fruit crumbles!
Okra in gumbo! Fried is good too.
Gorgeous seasonal produce prepared with influences from all over the globe.
Peanut butter and chocolate banana cream pie. It's really rich and begs to be made in a small, individual sized portion.
Oh thank god it's so expensive! I just bought one and started to kick myself but at that price, can't even think about getting it. ;)
Japan from Okinawa to Hokkaido (where my maternal grandparents were from).
Salted caramel today. Something fruity tomorrow probably.
Been a fan since his first book! His blog makes me want to live in Europe again.
My experience is limited to buying from a kosher bakery and eating in a kosher deli. I'm assuming kosher and Jewish aren't synonymous here.
Frites from this one stand in Vienna near the opera house eaten from a paper cone on a warm summer evening with a grosse bier vom fass.
A beef dish at a Sichuan restaurant in Hong Kong. I wish I could remember the name of it (and the restaurant but it was almost 20 years ago). I do remember the name being familiar but this version was much hotter. Relentless but also so tasty I couldn't stop eating it despite the burn.
