You are such a foodie. Seriously, I just like hearing what you're having for dinner.
Kind of, yeah! I tend to favor basic, fresh ingredients (mostly, but not here), and not get too crazy. I mean,things can get a bit pompous. But eating is a pleasure. Here and again, I will invent a simple dish, and pretend I'm on Iron Chef!
Once, I had this idea:
I fooled around with a reduction, until the balance was right: Lime juice, fennel, honey (to cut the acidity). And drizzled that on the bottom of a plate. On top, I served large sea scallops, pan seared at a high heat in olive oil, with a dash of high proof potato vodka to glaze them. And mmmmmmmmmm, mmmmm. Take that, Gordon Ramsey!
