    Japanese foods-- otsumami

    hi Torakris and others-- this is slightly off-topic, but where was the thread where Kristin was kindly (thank you!)posting a new Japanese food word daily? by the way, i love egullet, and i want to thank the folks who contribute their knowledge and opinions... gus
  2. hi culinary montreal-- i have a query--i'm wondering if anyone can offer tips & tricks to get that platonically perfect "blue" steak? that is, a steak that is crusted and caramelized outside, as well as blue-rare inside. this is for home prep, so no grills unfortunately. what i do now: pre-heat a cast-iron frying pan in a 400-degree oven, pre-heat a burner to high, dip the steak in kosher salt and coarse pepper, and try to only turn 1-2 times. any suggestions? thanks in advance! gus

    Les Chèvres

    hi all-- so i know you guys at Les Chevres had a reception and tastings <?> monday, and you're opening to the public tonight. i hear that the interiors are astonishing, the sculptures at the entry, etc. the glass vitrine to the pastry kitchen. Congratulations! can someone post a menu, or discuss the appetizers? i probably won't be able to make it there soon, and yet this resto seems to be very eagerly anticipated indeed! thanks! :-)

    hi Lesley C and others-- i have a link for some food and chef images of the Morimoto night at Soto Old Montreal: soto morimoto hope this link works for you all, as it shows several of the dishes Lesley mentions, as well as several brands of sake (someone else asked about). this is my first post, but i love this board already! ;^) gordon
