Cauliflower roasted with grapes, almonds and curry

^Roasted? In the mise en place thread it looked pan fried.

How is it? I looked at the recipe a few time but the amount of work and equipment needed was incredible. I tried it once without the sous vide machine and vacuum chamber

More butter, more win.

@ind: He made it twice so far, so I'm sure it tasted quite good. Never got around to make it and use up some more of the curry oil. Is there SV ivolved?!

It's browned on the stovetop in brown butter and curry oil, then finished in a 300º oven. I'm not sure if that qualifies as "roasted" (maybe foodguy can assist), but this is the title it is given in the book.

It's good. Like you said, a lot of steps, but it's a nice, simple harmony of flavors.

No comment.

I'm sure wine prices are sick in restaurants the world over. 400%, maybe even 1000% sometimes.
post #20799 of 25383
I wouldn't order wine if it was 1000%. smile.gif (Maybe I'm just that cheap, or, you know, reasonable)

Also, I've always been ableso far to find 200-300% markup.

You get the 1000% mark-up wine when your boss is paying. Like some Bordeaux claret (from France NOT China) that costs around equivalent of $60 in a restaurant, and the same wine sells in western supermarkets for around $6.
post #20801 of 25383
Bordeaux is by definition french
post #20802 of 25383
Of course, and very nice it was as well. smile.gif I was trying to make it clear that it really was French wine and not Chinese. It's because it's imported, restaurants tend to sell it for stupidly high prices. The Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon from Shandong province they'll sell for around $4-$10 a bottle.

My fiancé and I split the signature dish at an alhambra chinese place, a 4 pound sauteed spicy lobster. Also got deep fried shrimp that were swimming when we got there.
