    mustard dry vs. wet

    just use the grey poupon. there is a big difference in flavor though. i would use more grey poupon in the recipe than the dry. merry x-mas!
  4. or roast a whole strip,,then let it rest and make the sauce in the roasting pan. you could do this an hour before guests arrive then just rewarm roast in the oven.

    Risotto in advance

    just pre cook the risotto but keep it on the undercooked-crunchy side. then grill your steaks and when their resting re-heat your risotto with more broth and finish with butter and cheese. some people will swear me off on this,,but trust me,,you'll never know the difference. have a great time!
  15. shibuya for sure. be careful of too mush sake though!

  21. molto-- we were at bouchon in october and i had the same boudon blanc and eggs like you and i can say they it was one of the best breakfasts i had in my life. the sausage was nice and mild flavored and the eggs were just nice and creamy and with the beurre noisette just made it soooo rich. also a must have is the sticky buns! our table shared one and loved it. can't wait to go back! maybe in march. great picks also!--thank you!

    Menu Help

    maybe make a wilted salad with lentils mixed in at the end and garnish with a fried quail egg and the quail. be careful when you crack the quail egg. use a serated knife to saw through shell. lime and basil sorbet is real nice and refreshing . maybe a small scoop before the entree ? have fun!

    Steamed clam question

    if the clams look real white and clean then they are canadian farmed clams. very bland compared to maine wild steamers which have darker shells.
  24. plus alot of the chains use frozen beef patties. hmmm,,,nice rare frozen burger. eeeeeeeek!
