    We had steak (broiled) in a marinade (honey, teriyaki sauce, ginger, garlic, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, and sesame seeds) with sweet potatoes (cooked in canola oil, brown sugar, salt, and pepper) and broccoli (sp?). Mmmmm.

    Insalata caprese (with basil and tomatoes from the garden)
    Daube provençale au vin rouge (red wine beef stew, marinated 24 hours prior to cooking, perfumed with orange zest, sprinkled with olives and shallots the last half hour of cooking, simmered gently for 4 hours.)

    Night before last: spanakopita, heavy on the dill.

    Tonight: Cornish hens, hopefully barbecued if it doesn't storm, with lemongrass white beans (experiment).


    I'm in love ! [​IMG]

    Bouji, My god, do you eat like that every week? Sounds great.

    Kent, love that presentation.

    I went to Nagoya for the day and finished it with some Misokatsu, a local Nagoya specialty: Breaded and fried pork tenderloin with a sweet red miso sauce. It was delightful.

    Normally not so much wine... As for the food, if you make it fresh, it's relatively inexpensive. Things like Prosciutto, Buffalo Mozzarella and Swiss Chard, are easily available in London, certainly more so than Japan, as they are European.
    Time is an issue, but work has been slow recently, and I head home at about 4pm most days; so I cook.

    Grilled Swordfish, marinated in soy, ginger, garlic, and rice vinegar, with black beans (onions, garlic, cumin, coriander), and guacamole on the side. Two fingers of Ron Pampero Anniversario rum. If I'd had a cigar, it would have been perfect.

    pinot noir. The one I had last night, harvested during one of Loire's best recent vintage (1997) could have passed for a decent burgundy, with a lighter texture. !luc

    It's really not worth getting sought though. Most of them are rather aquous and lack maturity. !luc
