Debbie and I love going to Mon Ami here in Reston. In addition, we adore their Moules Marinieres and will go there just to eat that dish along with a bottle of wine (or at least that is what we tell ourselves before we end up ordering a full meal). We have made mussels at home several […]
What is sous-vide?! That IS the question. Well, I didn’t know it was a question until I visited London last year and had the pleasure at eating at Dinner By Heston Blumenthal in the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park. During dinner we had a chicken course that was made using the Sous-vide technique. I can tell you of […]
For this Friday Night Date night (at home) I was excited to break in my new Lodge Cast Iron Wok. Unfortunately, the sleet, freezing rain, and snow prevented me from cooking outdoors and I moved the operation inside. On tap was a good looking recipe I found on the Food & Wine website, Thai Chicken Basil Stir Fry.

The Mushroom Panzanella was a great side dish for this delicious grilled steak! I paired this wonderful meal with a nice Malbec. Enjoy this interpretation of Rib […]
Panzanella is a Tuscan salad usually made with bread and tomatoes. This recipe replaced the tomatoes with various mushrooms which really gave the Rib Eye steak a dose of umami which balanced the dining experience. This recipe for Summer Mushroom Panzanella pairs perfectly with the Rib Eye Steak with Miso Red Wine Marinade recipe I posted earlier.
I had lunch with a friend of mine at a local Thai restaurant. On that day I decided to get the Thai Beef salad and it was so delicious I wanted to recreate that flavor profile at home on my BGE. I started to research the flavors of Thailand and in the process came across […]
