    Maybe a little hearty for the time of year, but delicious.

    So is that potato dish the new SF trend? Manton truly is the SF-tastemaker, as it were.

    Question - was there water from the tomatoes on top? It seems like whenever I put fresh tomatoes on my pizzas, they leak a lot of liquid when cooked, even when I remove the seeds and stuff.

    KJT, did you try using plum tomatoes? They naturally contain far less liquid than "normal", round ones.

    ive never noticed any water leakage - most of the 'sheen' is either garlic butter or just shitty iphone camera.

    Hmm... I might be getting up on my soap box a little here about seasonal eating but I don't buy this whole business of something being too hearty for summer.

    Matt, neither you nor I toil in the fields or even spend much time not in absurdly comfortable surroundings. I don't know what your professional life is like, but there are sometimes stretches of weeks where there could be the most apocalyptic heat, or the diametric opposite happening outside and I wouldn't know. The only thing that would matter would be that for dinner that night, I was craving pommes anna and some braised chicken thighs in a lovely unctuous sauce. And I'd eat that if it was as hot as the surface of the sun outside, as long as I'm not fucking outside when it happens.

    Seasonal eating has practical purposes to be sure, you get better things at certain times of the year... but the reality of modern living for many of us; who can take a certain degree of comfort and non-subsistence living for granted, shouldn't feel so restricted by the whole OMG ROOT VEGETABLES AND BRAISES ONLY IN WINTER hysteria (not what matt is about but you do hear it a little too often.)

    While it probably doesn't matter so much in matt's house with fancy things like kitchen ventilation and central air...but I definitely have an aversion to the hearty stuff in the middle of the summer.

    Obviously if I want something, I will go ahead and eat it--but when it is hot out, I find myself being less interested in heavy foods. I want something light with crisp flavors that will cut through the summer lethargy.

    As for things that cook for a long time in an oven like a braise...they make my place hot as hell. Some BBQ would be fine since it is done outdoors, but doing a braise in my oven gets uncomfortable since my kitchen is open to my dining area so I end up eating in too much heat.

    When I've got the heat on, doing a braise just means that I save a few pennies on my heating bill.

    I think the constructive criticism could be a little more positive.......

    don't slam the plate ......say how you would improve it...

    without attacking the guy....

    just my take

    Looks delicious. Despite the heat here, I've been craving chicken in a vinegar sauce. I also think it's never too hot to enjoy a lamb chop.

    This is how I pictured mm coooking; standing in his 65 degree central air with a hoody on over some enormous Viking range, cooking the hell out of his vegetable sides.

    Only seasonal stuff over here, and we've had bad weather so little fist-sized iceberg heads were like $5 a piece the other day. I don't have AC and I live on the 8th floor of my building too. =( The only thing I want to consume for the next couple months is probably just ice cold lagers and maybe a ham sandwich here and there.
