Dinner 2020

Recommended Posts

 

I am a fan of compound butter.  If you have Six Seasons his mushroom butter is fabulous.  Steak looks like it has a nice crust on it!

What would prefer to call them?

 

They are called oxtails because they are the tails of oxen.

 

As always I could be so wrong but the vernacular here is that oxen are older and that is not cost effective so what we see are steer tails. (castrated males)  The girls get milked i think.  Feed lots are scary places- flashbacks...

V dinner, pan fried shrimps and largemouth bass fillet.

 

Largemouth bass is monogamous, so are a few shrimps. Happy Valentines Day!

Makes perfect sense and such an economical way of describing this cut of meat. I was trying my best to work it out mentally earlier in the day. Cow tails? No, that wouldn’t work because they might be from bulls. Bull tails? No, that wouldn’t work either. Then I got distracted...  so thanks. I might eventually have pursued it further but you saved me the trouble.

Pesto02152020.png

 

Artichoke02152020.png

 

 

I can't think of two less photogenic foods than artichoke and pesto.*  This dinner was a one pot meal.  I wanted to test out my new baby Fissler pressure cooker.  Pasta for the pesto was simply boiled about a minute in the pot, and then as I enjoyed the pesto the artichoke steamed for 15 minutes on high, followed by natural release.  No need to watch the pressure cooker on the Paragon.  Paragon was set to 248F.

 

Pasta, Serious Eats recipe as usual.  Pesto from Jerry Traunfeld, The Herbfarm Cookbook.  What's unique (or at least different) about the Traunfeld recipe is the order in which the ingredients are mixed.  Pasta was perfect.  Possibly the best pesto I have had.  Artichoke wasn't half bad either.

 

 

*well, OK, kale and cauliflower.

 

 

 

Edit:  oh, and the basil was from my dining room.

@Kim Shook 24 hours is plenty long enough for marinating the pork for char siu.  As for the beansprout dish, I just toss in some fresh ginger into hot oil in the wok to infuse the oil with flavour. Toss in the beansprouts and stir-fry until slightly wilted. Season, add pieces of green onion and char siu. That's about it. It's simple but a favourite of mine. My Mom always warned me about NOT eating bean spouts whenever I was pregnant because they thin the blood and not good for baby. But, with each pregnancy, I CRAVED this dish! Imagine my hubby and I wandering down Shaftsburry Road in London, looking for a Chinese restaurant, to satisfy my craving!
Having owned a restaurant, going out for Valentine's dinner was NOT an option. I made a recipe that I hadn't done for a long time - Citrus Marinated Roast Chicken.

Eaten with green beans sauteed with fuyu, and brown rice and wild rice mix.

Appetizers x 2. 

Entree (not in the US sense) of scallops on pumpkin with orange sauce and hazelnut foam. 2 x slices of cheese. Dessert as attached. No one went away hungry.

Ps. That was an incredibly rich main course. I included the cheese  but didn’t need to.

Eye of the beholder.    This shot is framable.      Of course, artichoke is my favorite veg.

We went to Strasbourg today - it has been a long time ...

My favorite cheese shop was still in business (as it might have been in the last decades). They mature the cheeses themselves and sell you everything just right. An they are very enthusiastic to get you what you like ...

We picked up some varieties and headed to the butcher ...

Since we returned from Hong Kong we bought a large freezer for the cellar. I bought rabbits, veal medaillons, prime rib, several lamb cuts and half a dozen fresh blood sausages 🙄

Plus some interesting horse sausage, pork rillettes, duck pate, ...

Veal heart was on offer, but I had stretched my budget already with some canned foie gras ...


At night, we had a simple store(s)-bought dinner 😉

 

Pate en croute Richelieu, with foie gras and sauternes jelly.

Our loot from the cheese shop. Upper row from the left: a young Jura abbey cheese from raw cow milk, a washed rind cheese from the Savoy area made from cow milk, very creamy Roquefort, below sheep camembert & a day-old fresh goat cheese.

Huge shrimps - very fresh - with Sauce Brazil. The heads were so good !

Not from France, but pretty well fitting ...

I love to cook, but “convenience food” plus some fresh baguette can be pretty satisfying, too ...

Braised cabbage with noodles, apples, butter, caraway, mustard, apple cider vinegar, parsley. With sour cream.

Spread of haminados eggs (baked overnight), roasted eggplants, caramelized onions. Not the prettiest thing, but really delicious.

Indeed!    I would run TOWARD them!   I was about to post how wonderful butcher and creamery shops were in Europe.    But your rabbit comment reminded me of a favorite movie, Le Grand Chemin, in which a city boy is farmed out  to country relatives.    In his first few hours, they butcher a rabbit and he is astounded.   He new hostess asks,  "What's the matter?    Haven't you ever seen Monsieur Lapin without his pajamas?"
