The vinegar is the key to it.

I went to a nice little restaurant yesterday night. I started with an appetizer of escabeche of mackerel on safran rice soufflé. I then had seared tuna with some sort of pie (pâte feuilleté) which was covered with red peppers, almost melting spinachs, green olive tapenade and garlic cream. This dish was spectacular. I washed this down with a glass of white Bergerac sec. I finished the meal with a pain perdu with pear sorbet and a glass of banyuls.

Grilled game hens marinated in lime, oil and herbs. Side of pasta made from scratch and hand cut into tagliatelle. Mixed the pasta with EVO, garlic, peas, sauteed crisp pancetta and chopped parsley. Salad was fresh spinach, greens and heirloom tomatoes we grew out back. Wines were a Beaujolais and pinot noir.

For dessert we had strawberries dipped Ghiradelli chocolate.

I like Fridays!

That's what I had for lunch today. That's the standard electoral campaign meal, eh.

We ordered like 15 pizzas last night for the campaign office (office opening party) and someone commented how pizza is a staple for political operatives. It is true!

There is a provincial and a federal campaign going on in my area and I am volunteering on both. I'm eating pizza all the goddamn time.

pretty good two weeks

spent a few days in San Francisco, had the best gelato I've had in the states, in long beach. salty caramel, pistachio, watermelon and grapefruit. also a pretty good pasta dish, cooked very firm, with a sauce of sausage, tomatos, capers, peppers and garlic. had some excellent corned beef hash, very lean, very nice ratio of onion.

also, in SF, had a chance to go out to dinner with Iamatt. aside from a very nice evening of conversation, some great beans, and a really excellent piece of roast pork. tasted a bit of Matt's grilled octopus starter which was outstanding.

2 days in Hong Kong - very nice dim sum: 2 types of roast pork buns, one fried one steamed, prawn dumplings, steamed lotus buns, mango crepe, something with liver and prawns, and maybe a few other things.
also, a very nice mooncake, and some pork curry noodles.

Manila - can't say I had anything really special there, my local partner took me to a weird japanese style coffee shop for lunch, ended up having what I have when I get stuck for a meal in tokyo airport, a breaded pork cutlet in curry sauce.

Singapore - 2 greats days there. ate one good meal at a fancy resteraunt - on the top floor of the pan pacific, including sharks fin soup, pork in strawberry sauce, steamed grouper, and peking duck (just the first part, with duck meat and pancakes). aside from that, ate all of my meals at hawker centers. had some great carrot cake, sate, some fantastic dumplings filled with peanuts and a few other things.

now I am Bangkok - just had some very nice dim sum, a little different, but good. had roast pork, served with a chili vinegar dipping sauce, and pickled pink ginger, like sushi. never had that before, nice touch. yesterday had some very nice pork with basil and chili, in the street.

I grilled ribeyes last night for us. I used the marinade that I have posted here previously. I also took mushrooms and started them off on high with some olive oil. When they started to sweat out their liquid, I mixed in a little William Sonoma demi-glace (bought with a gift card ) and a cup of Syrah, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to med-low and gently simmer until the liquid is mostly gone and syrupy. I smeared the steaks with an artisnal buttermilk blue cheese while they rested. 2004 Siduri Psioni Pinot Noir.

Fresh, homemade red sauce (with meatballs and pork chops) on spaghetti. Fresh bread from the Italian bakery, and a nice Vino Nobile.

It was my first time making sauce using my grandmother's recipe, and it turned out great. My wife and I are both completely stuffed from last night's meal. Our 20 month old son ate his weight in bread with sauce, spaghetti, and all the pork chop that he could get his hands on (in fact he yelled at my wife when she tried a bite off of his plate).
