1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Chicken Milanese with a salad, Sam Adams summer ale, and a small dish of ice cream. All homemade except the beer obviously.

    Incredible meal at Ruscalleda's Moments in Barcelona. Truly one of my most memorable culinary moments - for a few reasons. The dish I was most skeptical about when reading the menu, ended up being a masterpiece (let's see if anyone can guess). Some photos courtesy of mrs gdl

    Was the "creamy and spicy" the masterpiece?

    The "cold and hot" dessert with chocolate and olives was. That's the last picture. The "straciatella" ice cream is made with black olive bits instead of chocolate and the whole dish is drizzled with the best olive oil I've tasted so far (called "1000 autumns" because it uses olives from 1000-year old olive trees). I was highly skeptical but it was a divine dessert.

    A bunch of stuff over the past few days.

    Ottolenghi's braised eggplant with minced lamb meat, cinnamon, etc.
    Summer veggies cooked in butter & olived oil (fennel, carrots, roasted red & white beets, french beans, fave, parsley, onion, white radish, kohlrabi)
    Fennel, celery, parsley, grapefruit salad
    Caprese
    Tomato, onion, basil, feta salad
    A few other assorted salads
    Bruschetta
    Zucchini battons cooked in olive oil with garlic; basil; ricotta; Parmigiano & pasta
    Red & white beets roasted with olive oil, lemon juice, thyme and finished with aceto di Balsamico
    Various sandwiches -- Edmon Fallot's balsamic mustard is fantastic for sandwiches.

    Didn't take pictures of most of the dishes, just these two (for whatever reason):

    Gotta keep this thread alive..

    Tomatoes, onions, feta, basil, olive oil

    [​IMG]

    Spinach & caramelized hazelnuts

    [​IMG]

    Rigatoni with zucchini batons sweated in olive oil with garlic, ricotta & Parmigiano, basil. Lots of pepper. I love this.

    [​IMG]

    Frittata with sweated fennel/carrot/celery/onion, chorizo, feta, basil

    [​IMG]

    Frittata with sweated fennel/carrot/celery/onion/French beans, chorizo, some crisped mango/curry tofu, basil, tomatoes. Didn't have enough eggs left so I stretched it with ricotta, feta and milk--hence a little softer. Some spinach. And some fennel/carrot/celery salad.

    [​IMG]

    Rigatoni Napoletani, fave, chorizo, tomato, parsley, Parmigiano. I usually make this with Guanciale but this was great too.

    Spaghetti ajo e ojo (raw version). Lots of garlic, lots of chili. Sometimes this is all you need.

    [​IMG]

    Ottolenghi's zucchini fritters with sour cream/lime/coriander/cardamom sauce. Good overall but the fritters are very light in taste and get easily dominated by the sauce. Maybe I'm gonna add some cinnamon and cumin to the fritters next time.
