    No stuffing. I cut each in half to flatten, then coat in a batter of tempura flour, water, minced garlic and sliced basil. I freeze them on a lined sheet pan and fry from frozen, at around 170c.

    i hated the francis mallman episode. hated the faux romantic douchiness. the whole cape and beret wearing nomadic playboy reading french poetry by candlelight was distasteful.

    loved the magnus nilsson episode for the cinematography especially, but also the food and the story arc of the prodigal son returning home and making something wonderful happen in the middle of nowhere

    also n/nika and the issues a female japanese american lesbian chef had to face in trying to open up a restaurant

    i loved the series less because of the food and more because of the stories behind successful people. but i also loved how they discussed signature dishes and the idea and development behind them.

    Friday actually, but I've been hanging out up here on the weekends recently. Food is pretty good… not spectacular, but I like the view.

    Thank you for showing us mediocre food, but leaving out the "spectacular" view. Maybe you can leave this post in any of the other threads on stye forum that would be more receptive to your fantastic lifestyle shots.

    Wow… sorry to have offended the mayor of the "what did you have for dinner" thread. I wasn't aware there was a subtext title of "only if the food is spectacular or if you've provided full context." btw…if you can read (questionable), I said the food was pretty good, not mediocre. What was implied is that it's a bit over priced. I also did not say the view is spectacular although it is.

    So, okay, here's the view.

    and here's from Saturday night cooking at a cottage my friends were staying in… unfamiliar kitchen and equipment but decent results.

    [​IMG]

    Grilled U-15 shrimp, grilled broccoli, cous cous with cilantro, some diced veggies and a bit of green olive for saltiness, octopus salad, and Hawaiian tuna poke.


    Apologies, I did not take a picture of the room or the cottage in Santa Monica.

    Perhaps, Bhowie you can leave your future comments in any of the "useless comments for acting like a knob" threads in which presumably you are also the mayor.

    Srsly were you talking about mine? I was quietly embarrassed as it was a rental place (although very nice) and just some food we wrecked together as a crew. :embar: I am certainly capable of much better, but again if that was mine, thanks.


    btw.. all the seafood came from Santa Monica Seafood … which looks like this…

    SM Seafood is excellent, although I miss the old days before they moved to the traffic- and parking-challenged new (well, like five years new I guess) spot with the cafe seating. Used to be much more of a straight-up fish market. I'll go to the new place if I have time in my day to bike over there, but more than once have passed on it because I didn't want to deal with parking, etc. Of course, that's just because I'm a cranky misanthrope.
