  1. Yesterday at The Strand, and at least for now, in my possession... Ritz Carlton Boston, 1968
  2. Duck confit being re-crisped with 2 kinds of potatoes.

    Dinner 2020

    Porrusalda. This is a Basque homestyle dish, stew or soup - you be the judge, and one which I encountered at Ernesto's recently. Of course, it's basically a simple leek and potato soup, here supplemented by carrots, the leeks sweated in both duck fat and olive oil. In Basque Country, they might add soaked salt cod to the dish before serving, to make it more substantial. It's classically water based (as is the leek and potato soup I often make), but the cup or so of chicken stock I had sitting in the fridge, was added and certainly didn't detract from the dish - it added to it. Oh yeah, it's topped with a sprinkle of espelette, a la Ernesto's.

    Dinner 2020

    Assorted "tapas" to start (e.g. anchovies with piquillos, olives, piperras, mushrooms, etc.). Linguine with sugo di carne - pork and meat sauce, the meats sourced from Ends Meats. Petite boneless leg of lamb...sourced from Trader Joe's. Roasted with red bliss potatoes. And Brussels sprouts, also oven roasted. Cheeses. Dessert. Much wine.

    RIP member joiei

    We’ll all meet up with him one day for a big barbecue. RIP.
  6. What about glass bottles/jars, which are returned to the store when you buy more milk, and are then sterilized and refilled.
  7. I guess that's all a matter of perspective, but two things: New York and LA aren't most cities. And $15 a knife (for 4 knives, cheaper with more knives) doesn't seem to be that expensive.

    Dinner 2020

    Nursing a shitty cold, sometimes I just want to put together something w/o cooking. And what's better than an assortment of stuff on hand, either in the fridge or the pantry? Especially (mostly) Spanish/Basque stuff... Piquillo peppers, marinated artichokes, piperras, feta, anchovy stuffed olives, cherry tomatoes, tuna from Donostia, pickled green beans from the lower east side.

    He doesn't really care THAT much...any more.
  10. Not for a long time, though we try to visit annually.
  11. Welcome. Where in the Bay Area are you? I lived in San Jose and environs for 16 years, and there are many other (or maybe a few other) Bay Area inhabitants aboard.

    Dinner 2019

    It wasn't exactly dinner (maybe supper?), but part of a cauliflower I bought from my street corner guy for $2... Was cooked to death in garlic, olive oil, red pepper flakes, and a little water, which when the cauliflower was mushy got a little stock to enhance. Mezze rigatoni con cavolfiore e pecorino. Lots of black pepper, maybe some parmesan and some of the pasta water.
  13. A friend of mine recently tried this service, and said his knives came back in great condition. Has anyone here used it? Seems like they have tattoos, so they must be good. Knife Aid

    This is the Cameron stovetop smoker - essentially the same product.
