I've been working on cooking more lately, so last night I made a rather delicious linguine in a white wine butter sauce, with scallions, chicken, portabellas, and a dash of lemon. I was pretty pleased with myself, and finally got my fiancee off my back about never cooking anything that takes effort ;-)

 

I've been interested in learning to cook some Asian dishes, especially Thai, but I have no idea where to start. Maybe a project for next weekend!

I have had the most luck cooking from Alléno's books. 4S is probably my all time favorite in terms of recipes and presentation. Everything I've made from L'Ambroisie I've really enjoyed, but with that much truffle, how could you not?? Right now I have been cooking a lot from Alléno's magazine, YAM (thanks Antwon) which are beautifully put together.

BTW, it looks as though he is publishing a new book, probably to stroke his ego more than anything else. All of the recipes inside look recycled from the magazines:

Have you found that the box/slipcover is pretty crappy? Mine has totally split down the side the other day when I went to swap the issue I had out. BTW it's Antwaan. Thanks.

Yeah. It is starting to split. His other book, 101 Creations, the spine totally detached from the book itself. The guy at KAL suggested rubber cement, since the French don't like dealing with replacing books, or dealing with much of anything, for that matter. For what you spend on these books, you would at least expect them to hold together.

Spinach and ricotta cannelloni, artichokes, parmesan foam(!!!)
AppleMark

How did you like the spinach with hazelnut oil/brittle?
post #22481 of 25356
Great. It's a great combination. I helped make these little spinach "subrics" at Daniel, which is basically just a sheet pan of a spinach custard mixture cooked in a steam oven, then cut into squares. They finish them with a little chopped toasted hazelnut and truffle and serve with duck. They were awesome.

That is really pretty. Even by your standards.

Did you start the artichokes in the pan without liquid for 10 minutes or so to help prevent them from discoloring?

yeah, I'm assuming that is raw fish and the knife work looks amazing.
