    Finishing up the 09 Cab, Duroc pork chops were on sale, so I googled for Sauce ideas and this is Garlic, Mustard, Butter/Cream sauce. I went a bit crazy on the garlic but it's SO good. Tossed a little fresh Tyme on top and it's a but excessive sauce:

    Dinner 2021

    Tonight we continue with the 2009 cab. My wife does not do cooked beef (she will eat a good beef tartar) so she made a carmalized onion, pepper, and mushroom tart. I continued with my American waygu this time with onions and asparagus.

    I often drink aged cabs, this was pretty unique as it had a lot more fruit left after 12 years then I would expect. This was not 100% cab, but cab with some other Bordeaux grapes mixed in (though by far majority cab) so that could be the reason. Usually I drink 100% aged cabs and the good ones are complex w/o any tannins left. I've been working on 2007 from my cellar, soon I'll break into the 2008. I got 2 bottles of this 09 cab, I'm going to save the other one for a year or two and see how that much age changes it further. I have had very well aged French wi

    Dinner 2021

    Today I got my 1st Covid-19 Vaccine, and last week I received a 2009 Stone Edge Farms Cab. So why not celebrate and try a aged wine. So that means American Wagyu ribeye with some asparagus and fried potatoes. And some nice salt for the steak.

    So I do like good quality Ham, but it's hard to buy in small quantities.. So I was shocked to see small steaks of high quality ham at my local upscale grocery. I improvised a glaze - the ham is ~9.5 ozs, served with mashed potato and paired with a Hagafen Dry Riesling (0% R.S.) which worked quite well.

    Dinner 2021

    Last night and tonight, and tomorrow night will all be the same thing! Duck Kefta Tagine from The New Mediterranean Table I've posted it before, it's one of my favorite dishes I've cooked at home so I figure I'll make it 3x a year or so. Paired with a 2014 HdV Syrah. Meat balls are not perfectly round, I sous vided these in a zip top bag so they were not as compressed, but still don't stay round

    Another one of Giada's recipes from one of her cookbooks: Banger's and Mash, Sausage is chicken, there's celery root in with the potatoes.

    Dinner 2021

    Tonight Lemon and Chive Risotto from Food Network with Gianda: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/lemon-and-chive-risotto-5592292 Same episode as the sole - which we actually made for lunch today (though since I posted it last weekend I did not take pictures again) It's very good risotto, I modified the recipe method to use a pressure cooker ala the method in Modernist Cuisine at Home. So we didn't make 5 cups of the lemon stock but more like enough for 2-3 times.

    Dinner 2021

    Last night my wife got her 2nd covid shot, we stayed downtown and so got to watch Giada Entertains on Food TV this morning. She made this dish and we our local grocery had fresh sole in stock! https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/sole-with-lemon-caper-sauce-5592211 It's really good - I paired it with a 2017 Le Debut Chardonnay from HDV. I'm quite confident we'll make this again.

    We first made this ~20 years ago, it was the first high end dish I ever made - served it to my wife's grandmother (she was around 80 at the time, turning 100 this summer) https://www.emerils.com/125224/wasabi-crusted-salmon-orange-ginger-sauce I remember the taste - this is SO SO SO good. The sauce does have restaurant levels of butter in it though. Wasabi Crusted Salmon With Orange Ginger Sauce:

    Tonight Catfish breaded with Cornflour and succotash. We've made this plenty over the years - comes from America's Test Kitchen's 30 min meals. I love the color in the succotash.

    Lunch 2021

    I'd never had it before, there were 2 mussels in it and they were good, the soup it self was very lusciously and rich, I wouldn't want a full bowl of it at this richness. It worked perfectly to counterbalance the other 2 dishes.

    Lunch 2021

    It was for frying the potatoes, they gave us extra on purpose - I have a full duck in the freezer so I plan to use a bunch of it to confit the legs.

    Lunch 2021

    So restaurants around us can open if they want, but not all will. So our favorite local French restaurant Meritage occasionally offering Meritage a la maison which is French for Meritage at home. We like supporting them and the meal kits they offer always are cold so the final cooking / assembly is done at home. This time it was a large 4 course meal! I asked a good friend of mine at HDV what wine would go with all 4 pairings and he suggested their 2017 Chardonnay Le Debut (younger vines, they make 3 different tiers of Chardonnay) and it's in a French style - this wi

    Lunch today, wanted some fish to try out a 2017 Le Debut Chardonnay from HDV that should pair well with tomorrows 4 course french meal we picked up from our local French restaurant. Scallops were on sale so why not. Paired super well. The side is couscous with some red onion cooked in a chicken stock.
