It was a lot of fun and they were pretty stoked. This is one of the few clients that I know the kitchen so well I get to sit down and eat with them!

Is that main served with puy lentils, pancetta, and baby croutons? Anything else? Some capers perhaps?

Yum! Duckburgers? What?!
Tonight I got a bit experimental. Duckburgers. Never made them before.
Hand chopped duck meat (leg and breast) mixed with duck fat and Japanese 7 spice powder (Shichimi Togarashi 七味唐辛子). Fried in duck fat.
We don't get hamburger buns round here, so I improvised with some Chinese bread. A bit of salad and some Japanese pickled ginger.
I ate three! With fries.
I am literally blue with jealousy right now...I have a hard time even finding duck breast where I live. And I search regularly.
Awesome recipe though!

Insalata di ceci e porri (chickpea and leek salad)
For most people, I recommend slicing the leeks thinner than you see above, which will alleviate the "harshness". Or blanch it if you prefer. I have a high tolerance for raw onion/leek; it doesn't bother me.
Contains chickpeas (which were prepared from dried), leeks and Castelvetrano olives. The dressing is red wine, red wine vinegar, Italian parsley, extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt and black pepper.
Not a bad first attempt at homemade tagliatelle, eh? I guess I should also mention I don't have a pasta machine -- mostly because I don't have any room in my kitchen to put one.
BTW, this is the recipe I used: http://www.saveur.co...ade-Tagliatelle
Tagliatelle con zucca, funghi e pancetta (tagliatelle pasta with winter squash, wild mushrooms and pancetta)
I should have begun making fresh pasta a long time ago. You'll be seeing a lot more from me in the near future, like ravioli for example.
