Perfect Autumnal Meal: Nomad Restaurant via iPhone

IMG_4296

There’s no way I’m bringing my DSLR to restaurants again. But I’m definitely coming back here, to the NoMad restaurant, where I had one of the best meals TODAY in a long time. It beat that restaurant that starts with a P and ends with an E, and a bunch of other places…Seriously. I was […]

Texas Toast

DSC_8737

Simple texas toast breakfast by the computer while I start my morning. E-mail and my favorite blogs of course. Texas toast is one of my favorite things to pick up at the supermarket, it is very, what do you call it, ‘America’. And by the time I am done it will be hard to tell […]

Japanese Hot Pot

One of the best times for me to shoot is over the weekend, sometimes I shoot during the week too but over the weekend either I prepare meals for my friends or my family and the food I get to shoot for this blog is just a reflection of these short lifestyle instances. I think […]

Egg in a hole

Well good morning! I am a woman of my word, and I mentioned that I’d be doing some more breakfast posts like this, intimate setting. Made my way out of a whiskey haze at 5 am this morning but my priorities were crystal. Use up the rest of that truffle I bought, shoot, post, and […]

Breakfast with Luxirare

One of my new years resolutions was to let you guys in on my life a little bit. I think one of the most intimate moments during the day is Breakfast, where you make the shift between dream state to reality. Mornings are always a struggle for me, I get up very early every day […]

Truffled shrimp tempura sliders

DSC_0172

For a while now I’ve wanted to make some kind of shrimp tempura sandwich- and I ended up doing two versions here, some sliders (built like a classic hamburger) and one as a regular-sized sandwich on brioche. These are not just your average shrimp tempura, the batter includes freshly grated truffle and the aioli sauce […]

The smell of freshly fried french fries from McDonalds are intoxicating. I don’t know what it is about their fries, maybe its the extra salt…the crispness..whatever…they are good. I don’t like burger king, and I’ll eat Wendy’s fries by default because I do love their Spicy Chicken Sandwich (#6), but McDonald’s fries are definitely my […]

Early Bird Special

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 […]

Black Truffles All Day

porcelain-hand

I recently bought some fresh black truffles. I bought quite a bit because I wanted to try and make some of my own truffle oil, salt, and honey. I use so many of these truffle products that I figured I should start preserving my own truffles. I also wanted to send a gift package to […]

Cold Truffles

NEW PICTURES 441 copy

Truffle ice cream. It doesn’t get much more indulgent than this. I’ve never seen something so beautiful. I’m starting the Creme Anglaise here, which is the base for many ice creams. Its a custard base used for desserts, consisting of heavy cream or milk, egg yolks and sugar. I grate the truffles into the …
