I've been away awhile, home to Montreal, where I did a lot of cooking and a lot of eating. I got out for two great meals which I shall describe on these two threads: Le Club Chasse et Peche
I also made some of the meals for the family.
One Night we had:Spinach Salad with Feta Dressing
- my Mom had eaten this at a restaurant recently, and she loved it so much she wanted to reproduce it at home; I happily obliged, and it was great
Two Lasagnas: BologneseRicotta-SpinachAlinka's Chocolate Cookies
This was another night's menu:Risotto with Saffron, Pancetta and MushroomsOsso Buco
- with some of the most beautiful veal shanks, from the Charlevoix region of Quebec. Percy's Molten Lava Cakes with Hagen Dazs Vanilla
- a HUGE hit; my brother in law went for seconds, and then thirds the following night
Another day I made some of my favorite snacks:Sambousak Mal Tawa
- filled with chickpeas, onions and spices; this is something my Grandmother has always prepared for me to bring back on the airplane, but as she can no longer really cook, I've taken the torch from her, happily.
