    Dinner! 2010

    I purchased my first bunches of ramps this weekend. First meal with them was fettucine with ramps, bacon, and a (barely) fried egg:

    Dinner! 2010

    Spice roasted duck with leek bread pudding, both from Ad Hoc at Home:
  4. I made the duck breast this weekend as well. It's amazing how much flavor it packs in with just a simple marinade. I served it with the leek bread pudding, which is also excellent. While some of the recipes are a bit fussy, the book has won me over; Keller knows how to make everything taste better than you would imagine.

    Dinner! 2010

    You all continue to amaze me with your amazing dinners and beautiful photos. The other night, I at spaghetti with a creamy pink shrimp sauce, inspired by a Marcella Hazan recipe:
  6. Has anyone cooked anything from the book yet? The book looks like a great read with fantastic pictures, but I'm curious how it compares to Donald Link's Real Cajun as a general cajun cookbook.

    Last weekend, I made a gooseberry chutney that I served with seared duck breasts. I've posted the recipe on my blog: http://culinarystudio.blogspot.com/2009/07...ry-chutney.html

    Dinner! 2009

    Pretty dish, well done. What was the acid in it to cut through the duck fat? How did the dish taste? ← Thannks! The acid was a fairly large amount of cider vinegar. I thought the recipe called for way too much, but it worked and gave the chutney a very nice tang. I also added a hefty dose of dry sherry. The chutney itself was great and not at all too sweet; some chopped rosemary helped to make it more savory.

    Rhong Tiam

    As I recall, Rhong Thiam was previously part of the Penang chain of Malaysian restaurants and is still co-owned by the Penang owners. It has been a while since I dined there, but I believe there are some holdovers from the Penang menu, so this may explain the noodles. However, Rhong Thiam is definitely a (very good) Thai restaurant, and the chef and other co-owner, Andy Yang, is from Bangkok.
