Slow and simple

DSC_0124

It’s truly a luxury to make everything from scratch, usually I buy pre-made butter and jam, but not in this instance. Can’t compare fresh butter and jam to store bought ones. The one thing I can’t control is scoring a baguette from Balthazar when it just popped out of the oven- Though I enjoy making […]

Italian style brunch

DSC_0300

Bend it like beckham was on this morning…. Some fresh mozzarella on an english muffin with prosciutto, pesto, and arugula. Bake at 450 for 10-20 minutes. This was delicious, make sure to toast the muffin before baking it in the oven so that the pesto and cheese doesn’t make the bread soggy. Serve with freshly […]

Simple breakfast tart

DSC_0251_2

A little tart with eggs, capocolla, avocado, creme fraiche, and chives… Roll out puff pastry dough after flouring the board, you can also use filo dough if you want. After rolling out the dough, cut 5×5 inch squares, you should get four out of one puff pastry sheet. I think it’s better to roll the […]

Sunday Morning

DSC_3602

I’m on my second cup by now…… Black truffles shaved on toasted english muffins with butter and honey. This is probably the easiest post I’ll ever do in terms of food. Has anyone read the review about Inception via NYTIMES? I hate to admit it but the review made some strong points about the movie, […]

Early Bird Special

DSC_0357

A quick post on a different way to do breakfast…..can’t start it without eggs. This may seem weird but I salt cured this piece of Toro Tuna (fatty tuna) for a breakfast meal (replacing smoked lox)…Salt curing meats like prosciutto, pastrami, etc is quite common but you can also cure and smoke fish (smoked salmon […]

Coffee

coffeeverticalwip

Coffee Station. This post may only be interesting to people who love coffee, otherwise you’ll probably snore through this whole thing. These kenyan beans have yet to be roasted. I purchased some different beans in their raw state, I like to fresh roast my beans. Coffee bean flavor deteriorates the longer they …

Tea Forte

DSC_0008

I got this gift over christmas and I’m actually not a big tea person but I gave these a try. I thought they were great. My favorite is the “winter chai” flavor. The packaging and triangular shape is nice..I know these have been around for a while and that they are also “Trendy”, …

croissant-package

*Sorry again guys, this post got “magically” deleted somehow (don’t know what’s going on with my wordpress)* Take these croissants out 9 hours before you’re ready to bake them, for proofing.

Parfait

_DSC0784

I like this idea of taking something so democratic and traditional as Yogurt Parfaits and turning it around to create something a bit more provocative. When Adria first invented this new process of taking liquids and forming them into self encased bubbles of caviar that held juice inside, I was not only mesmerized but excited…excited […]

Birds’ Nest

BLAZER

I saw this fried quail egg mummified inside a dumpling format. The skin was made out of a raw potato thinly sliced and then fried.   This idea by Adria seemed parallel to the blazer idea, a classic flavor combination dissected into parts to create a play on the traditional potato and egg combination.  How […]
