    I have zucchini fritters a lot in summer, they grow well in my veggie patch, I put plenty of basil, parsley and oregano in the mix. The cinnamon and cumin would be a nice lift.

    At Longman & Eaglet: beef tartare over buttered challah with some sauces and pickles that reminded me of all the good things about a Big Mac without the shitty patty and grease. This just made me incredibly happy. Also ate a veal brain schnitzel, which was paired with blueberries, mustard seeds, and some kind of jam. Still quite quite rich, but I wanted to try brain, and the texture is really unique - I haven't found words that adequately describe it.

    Checked out a place here in L.A. that specializes in cheap steak frites. They sous vide culotte steak. I kinda knew what I was getting into and thought it was okay in a "I'll never go back there but I'm not terribly mad I tried it" kind of way. My girlfriend, on the other hand, was aggrieved. She ranted for the next hour about how steak shouldn't ever be cooked sous vide.

    Strolled by Petit Trois to see if we could grab cocktails and dessert but of course there was an hour-plus wait.

    Aglio, olio e peperoncino (e prezzemolo). Or in the regional dialect: "ajo e ojo"--that's what Marcella called it and I use her "recipe" so I call it that way too. ;)

    So you're saying you didn't cook some (or at least talk about) spaghetti ajo e ojo with Marcella? You're slacking. :tounge:


    Ottolenghi's Thai red lentil soup with chili oil. Great recipe.

    actually, that is one of the first recipes i ever remember cooking from a cookbook. But it was from an old book callled "Romagnoli's Table" i believe that's even pre-marcella (it is, just double-checked and it was published in 1975 and Marcella I was published in 1976). and they called it aglio-oglio. :)
    my wife still loves the smell of olive oil warming with garlic in it.

    I actually prefer the raw version by now. Packs a bit more punch and is even more true to the ingredients. Anyway, I love both versions of the dish. Still have to try Marcella's version with fresh tomatoes and basil (iirc).

    actually that's what we had for dinner monday night. simplest pasta ever: spaghetti, garden tomatoes, basil, olive oil and garlic. the secret is macerating the tomatoes, garlic and salt for 10 minutes while the pasta is cooking, to draw out the tomato juices.

    Had it for lunch. Delicious.
    And carbonara for dinner. Didn't have this in ages. Perfect amount of egg, olive oil, guanciale and pepper. So fucking great.

    Thank this thread. I also had this today for lunch. I was worried the garlic would be too spicy in the raw version, but everything worked together wonderfully. This is just a great example of good tasting simple food.

    Followed FG's advice. Super hot grill, two minutes a side.
