Oh mon, petales.....merci.
Sorry, yes it is a mushroom indeed....but a mushroom extraordinaire! After,slicing and satueeing this bad boy in butter,i can only imagine what a magical mystery tour a truffle must play on the palate......oh sweet jesus is was good! joey
Swordfish two ways... 1) grilled, brushed with green goddess dressing, topped with beefsteak tomato, basil, caper and white bean relish. Fresh wild mushroom ravioli with tuscan kale 2) swordfish souvlaki with tzatziki on grilled flatbread topped with roasted sweet peppers/onions, kalamata olives, cherry tomatoes and feta.....roasted garlic/red pepper eggplant puree 3) key lime pie.....with zest 4) a customer brought me this puffball from their yard....guessing it...
All over mexico you can now buy velveeta 'con' jalape├▒os...that must say something! As an aside,something that i am not entirely proud of in terms of cooking ethics but it was such a BIG seller/ easy money item it was hard to say no. For the well heeled parties i use to cater i offered a sherried crabmeat 'fondue' made with velveeta's first cousin, 'cheese whiz'.....without a doubt at every party someone would corner me for the recipe...i tried several times to...
@cookingood4U Just a few more ideas for you to chew on......every year i cater an italian buffet..i just catered it for 80 last week and have another one next week.....even though it was a buffet and your affair is plated, a few things i have done in past years that worked well may be helpful to you...chicken in marsala mushroom sauce( boneless, skinless chicken thighs,which can be made the day before and reheated perfectly would compliment your red sauced lasagne, a rice...
Back in the times when we lived on a sailboat we spent 8 years sailing florida, from st augustine to key west, around and up to pensacola so in those years i feel that i got to get a glimpse of the real florida...the 'old' florida, not south beach with all its glitter and bling. Not to say that miami isn't wonderful in its own right, its just not the slow pace of the 'crackers'. Real southern hospitality is real in florida. Most of our time was spent on the gulf coast( the...
So, not to sound too snarky, but does classic' mean 'your' way is the new 'classic'? You didn't invent it but you perfected it, right? Why is your way 'classic' and restaurants who have doing it for 100 years in old florida not? hmmmm, just curious here hoss..... joey
Sure i'm too late in time for you making a key lime pie this go round but i have been making and serving this one for over 20 years at our restaurant...people(even floridians) say its the best, and i agree...it's the perfect balance of sweet and tart and simplicity...we dress it up a bit with a mango coulis, fresh whipped cream and a few blueberries, but it can stand alone all on its own.....the recipe is from Joe's Stone Crab House in Miami, which has been there since the...
Last nights special.... Grilled lamb tenderloin with green peppercorn sauce, cucumber- kiwi relish... Fresh sweet pea and mint ravioli........really nice.
