What did you eat last night for dinner? - Page 1348

post #20206 of 24804
Burrata is like the panko of 2006, while panko was like the panko of 1998. I don't love burrata, or at least I don't love it like I love buffalo mozzarella straight from the maker in Naples, or better yet Paestum. It is a good filling, though, since it is really just filling itself.

Some things are really good, so it is a benefit when they become trendy and available, some not so much.

i just really enjoy coffee. my knowledge base of coffee is less than my knowledge of wine (which is abysmal and more book type knowledge) and beer (which is graduate noob level). i did put myself on the waiting list for the august intro sommelier class. can't wait. hope i get in. there's like 4 classes in new york per year

ay usually puts me to shame

Nothing beats mozzarella with tomato, basil, and a nice olive oil.  You can throw it on pasta or by itself with a dash of acid(lemon or you choose vinegar).

Is there anyone that likes a nicely aged balsamic along with mozarella, tomato, basil and olive oil? I can enjoy it very much without and I know that it's a big nono, but I enjoy a small(!) amount of balsamic with it, too.

I don't love fior di latte, and buffalo changes so quickly after it is made. I still prefer mozzarella to burrata, and black truffles to white.

Matt,  You must go to Italy for truffle season.  End of story. Outside of Cuñeo in a small village up against the mountains called Boves, there is a restaurant, Al Rododendro.  You can stay there as well.  Truffles with egg, pasta, on top of stuffed zucchini blossoms, you name it.  The best female chef in Italy.  Heaven.

Sometimes it's just the whole package.  The day, the night, the meal, the wine , the company...  Once in a while it all comes together.

I love it with balsamic, and not even in a small amount!

Yes. It also had himalayan pink salt.

charcoal and ramps are the panko of 2011. Charcoal made from ramps is the panko of 2012.
