Fresh scallops right off the docks in Venice.
Moritaka Kiri 270mm. Love it.
Right now I am using a nice 240mm wa-gyuto that I keep sharpened with a 10/15 edge.
Pizza with truffles.
My dream bakery is whichever one has the perfect croissant.
If money is no option, ribeye. Otherwise hanger.
Never had a creative jello shot, although in the past some friends used jello shots to get rid of alcohol we didn't want to taste. Corn whiskey purchased as a gag was at the top of the list.
A few years ago I was in Portland Oregon visiting my sister. We went foraging in the woods and found some lobster and morel mushrooms. After a day out hiking we went back to their home walked back into the garden and got some zucchini flowers. A little fresh made pasta later and we had a wonderful bounty on the table.
We eat less meat and mostly locally from farmers. We also help out our local farmers by working on their websites and encouraging others to join us for trips to the local farmer's market.
It wasn't experimental in the modernist cuisine sense, but I recently boned a pig's head and made a porchetta di testa because of the Gourmet video with Chris Cosentino. In the video everything seemed so easy! Then I got down to it and realized they cut every time he got a hard part. I ended up getting it done and it tastes great, but it was a lot of work.
I can't wait to try again.
Stick rice, various pickles and a quick garlicky stir fry.
Sriracha and eggs!
Truffle pizza. It was amazing!
Ribeye, by far.
Realizing I could make delicious bacon at home!
Confit with ultra crispy skin, how can you go wrong?!
Provençal Turkey Roast with Riesling sounds absolutely delicious!
We eat far less meat than we used to now.
My favorite dessert is the one in front of me! (ha ha). In reality, I love a great cream puff. Simple, but delicious.
I had a series of disasters when I first started making sourdough, everything turned out like discs. Eventually, I got it right, but that was a depressing couple of weeks!
On a thin crust pizza with mushrooms and tons of cheese!
