Is this a carbon steel pan?  Is it a Darto?  It looks great, and a great seasoning job as well!

 

it’s an old Matfer carbon steel pan. It is a great tool. Slick enough for an omelette. My Darto is on the adjacent burner and every bit as loved.

Memories of Viet Nam...  Gỏi cuốn - summer rolls. Usually, this is served with a hoisin-like peanut sauce, but I like to do how it is typical in central Viet Nam which is a nước chấm with garlic and a ton of black pepper. So refreshing and healthy. Also it's typically done with pork or shrimp or both, but this is with chicken...

Was it spanish  tuna?

 

 

No.  And not Italian either.

 

Seriously, I have more impressive canned and jarred tuna but I would not serve it in this fashion.  There is a time and a place for everything.  OK, well maybe not for cauliflower.

Cauliflower is a lacuna in your otherwise excellent palate. 
 

But I know better than to suggest you just haven’t had it prepared right. No recipe will get a pea or lima bean paste my lips. 
 

I respect your lacuna.

I have to say the same.  Your dining room is beautiful!

 

Tonight, chili-thai basil salmon with spinach and rice.  From the anguished screaming I can hear on the other side of the house, it sounds like a New England Patriots loss is going to make for a bitter dessert for the football fans in my home.  My football game territory in the house has Christmas carols and wine 🙂

Time for honest confession.    Husband took one look and taste of tonight's fuyus and asked for no further dressing.    So...

Naked fuyus from his tree.

We celebrate, not question, the manner in which our kids, (hey, even friends) accept and appreciate vegetables.    A chacun son goût.    Well done.   I may copy.

Now that is a beautiful platter of food!

And, yes the dinning room is to die for.  Your dinning room table is also lovely...nice and wide (like ours) which excellent when serving platters of food such as you made leaving lots of room for glasses, etc.

Is Henry allowed in the dining room?.....you can reply in the “other thread” so we don’t get off track.

Thank you!  I love our place.  Old stone house with endless maintenance, but great esp at holidays. Table has two leafs that can make it seat 12 or 14. Henry stays In the kitchen with a soup bone to buy his silence.

I love old houses like yours....just a comfy place to be.  Bribery is a powerful tool!

 

Our Kerries were not allowed into the dining ‘area’...no separate room.  They were so good at sitting just on the border with their heads up sniffing what they were missing.  They did not get fed from any table and rarely got human food...as it should be.  BUT, we had friends who would encourage them over to them at the table for a pat...🤬

duck, Bruxelles sprouts leaves stir-fried (finally also my son is eating them this way), mushrooms and rice not in the picture

 

As it happens, duck and Brussels sprouts were on the menu at my place tonight, too. The duck was a version of the five-hour slow roast that's been going around of late, and the sprouts were tiny ones from my garden (blanched and frozen a few weeks ago after harvest). In my case the sprouts were caramelized slowly in a skillet with onions from my garden. Other sides were roasted potatoes (in duck fat, natch) with roasted carrots and parsnips (the latter also from my garden) and braised cabbage (ditto) with onions and apples.

No photos, alas, as my kitchen is currently a shambles with Christmas baking. Also laziness...
