What's the middle dish? Aloo gobi? (one of my favorites)
Bummer about the koftas, they look perfect.
Yes, aloo gobi. Although here I just tend to use whatever root/starch vegetable is around to fold in with the cauliflower. Russets are the best I think, but carrots, sweet potatoes, yukons...whatever is on hand ends up getting chopped and fried!

Anyone who follows my IG knows how excited I get about leftovers. Well, yesterday was no exception. We had leftover Savage Blonde oysters, some blue fin and snow peas from Green Meadow Farm. Dinner became oysters with Jonathan's famous 5 day mignonette, sashimi with real fresh Japanese wasabi, blue fin and avocado tartare with kinome from our sansho plant over Nigata rice, and wok tossed snow peas. A 2015 Ratzenberger Steeger St Jost GG was quite a nice match.

I am sorry Sarah but you and Jonathan are professional calibre chefs, you have an award worthy wine list, are the best place to eat in Philadelphia AND I travel every chance I get to eat at your place...I think the mods should move this to the travel, restaurant thread :)

I'm with you on leftovers, however my bride is far less enthused with them. Friday night I did a southwestern pasta with some leftover pork butt the other night. Just roasted poblano, roasted red pepper, leftover grilled corn smoked pork butt that had been vacuum bagged and some of the Rao's alfredo. Found some grated white cheddar from a night or two earlier. Tossed with some good fettucine noodles. Garnish green onion and cilantro. She didn't turn it down....

Nice job! I can taste it all just looking at the picture. It’s unfortunate that Indian food is not generally the prettiest looking cuisine as it is one of the most interesting and flavorful

Roast veal tenderloin, medium rare of course, with creamed leeks and fennel. Herbed red potatoes. Really nice with a Guigal St Joseph lieu dit blanc. Incredibly good. Not really best seasonal match but we need to empty the freezer and this tenderloin was on deck.

Had a couple of friends over for a long lunch yesterday; so I made the following simple (but good) dishes. Nb., we also had large live-cooked mud crabs and other sides; but, the cook made those, not I, so no photos thereof.

Balsamic honey glazed pork loin, stuffed mushrooms, aglio e olio peas squash and prosciutto, salad red leaf lettuce tomatoes and pesto mayo. And for Todd, yes i did add Calabrian paste to the pasta. Twice a little during the cook since dad was over, then a big dollop on mine.

Last night's dinner.
I love this recipe for sheet pan fried rice. The sauce has so much flavor and the rice gets nice and crispy.
I can email recipe if interested and can't open link.

Creamed leeks and fennel sounds great, right up my alley. Any pics or recipe?

No pictures. I don’t usually take pictures of food, except for pastry in Paris. It’s a simple dish, I think modified from one in a cookbook titled “French Feasts” but delicious and fabulous with northern Rhone whites. Going off of memory but I don’t think I left anything out:

1.5-2 lb veal tenderloin
3 large leeks sliced and rinsed
1 sliced bulb fennel (or 1 Tbsp fennel seeds if bulb fennel not available)
1 1/4 C H cream
3/4 C beef stock (veal stock if you have it)
1/2 C white wine
ev olive oil
salt and pepper


-Season tenderloin and roast at 425 until center is 125-130 F for medium rare to pink
-While tenderloin is roasting, cook leeks and bulb fennel in olive oil in skillet on medium-low until softened without browning
-Add cream, stock, fennel seeds (if using) to leeks/fennel bring to just bubbling; cover and simmer on low 15-20 minutes.
-Remove roast from roasting pan and deglaze pan with wine. Add deglazing liquid to leek mixture. Season as needed.
-Slice veal and plate in a heated serving dish with leek/fennel mixture.

Enjoy.

We had a lot of lettuces left from the Bo Ssam over the weekend, and we're about to go to Spain, where we won't get any Asian food, so.....Larb Sod!

Larb is one of our favorite summertime dishes. I didn't see any peanuts. I usually add peanuts to mine. It is also one of the few ground turkey dishes I like.

Huh! Yes, you are right. Thank you. The recipe I used calls it Larb Gai, but calls for ground beef. Odd....

No peanuts here. They destroy wine for both of us, so by default we never use them if we can help it. I don't digest legumes well in general, either.

Leaving the house for ten days so needed to empty out the fridge. Found fresh salmon, smoked salmon, salmon roe, and chives, so threw this together for lunch today.

I love that wine-I've had the 2017 and 2019. The 2017 is drinking really well right now, the 2019 is pretty nice as well. Crisp, clean, a hint of lemon and nuttiness. I wish it was a bit less expensive and I would have more.

Sometimes simple does the trick. Slept in, then made a quick trip to the market. An hour or so later, we had buttermilk pancakes, thick cut bacon and some fruit. Topped with maple syrup from a trip to Maine. Great morning!

Cooking for Dad today?

#2681 Post by Stan Y. »

It's Father's Day, and being an old man myself I am very fortunate that my dad, who is in his mid-80s, is still very active and living close enough by that we can have dinner a few times a week. Crab cakes are one of his favorite foods, so I just finished picking over fresh lump crab meat and making these, along wth a sort of remoulade...setting up in the fridge now (riff on a Magnolia Grill cookbook recipe). My wife needed to look after her mom yesterday so some fresh bigeye tuna I bought yesterday didn't get cooked then; will do that too along with wok-charred baby bok choy.

Homemade buttermilk ice cream (son) and a buttermilk lemon Bundt cake.

Little bit of Father’s Day fun with some Westholme picanha. Just salt and pepper on the smoker then finished on the binchotan grill for some extra maillard and texture. Sliced like steak and served alongside some jalapeño and mint coleslaw, shaved fennel salad and potato salad which I didn’t get pics of.

I was more of a sous chef at best (I monitored the timer and took the dish out of the oven.)


But I did select the wine, and I carried things out to the backyard.
