I had a short week of food highlights, pre-thanksgiving, to ease into my new culinary comfort zone. I am at one with my sisters hospitality; embracing her and her husbands routines one dish at a time. The goal is to use mainly what’s here; to re-imagine dishes and not waste ingredients. An important opportunity for me to record my recipes. The shortened week in review follows...
The first meal :
Rosa’s Eggplant Parmesan (Roma). Chicken Milanese with garlic perfumed Pomodoro fresca (Milano). Carciofo bollito (my bro n’ law).
Biscotti and its batter’s versatility, its batter used throughout the week as a pie crust, garnish and on its own.
Traditional Bolognese from Bologna. Its natural oils pungently providing the dishes sauce, its tomato content a consolidated paste ready to be transformed by the addition of heat.
A secondi of Grilled Sausage atop Pepperonata (Mixed Peppers, Capers, Olives and Olive Oil)
