When Frances was describing this to me I was like "What????". But I have fallen in love with the easiest and by far lightest in calories, potato salad I've tried. This is the grown up version of Pringles Dill Pickle Chips and I'm pretty happy about that.Read More
Recreating our fabulous meal at Chateaubriand - Paris, France. Our fish was showered in thinly sliced white truffles. Fear that is gilding the lily! A nice grating of fresh horseradish would be good. This dish is decidedly fussy - cooking times and techniques a challenge. Just sport your best French accent or recent Parisienne purchase - swear sweet-nothings at those darn potatoes et Allons -y! Don’t be scared by the alarming amount of butter - it is needed to cook the fish properly. The Benriner Japanese Mandoline, a christmas gift a nous-mêmes, is to thank for this beautiful mound of angel-hair like potatoes. We are in love. If you don’t have a mandoline you can create paper thin strips of potato using a classic vegetable peeler.
We arrived at Dana's house for a day's work to discover that she already had a pot of soup on the go - the lovely result of an impromptu fridge purge. We abandoned our game plan, decided to shoot the soup and then happily ate it for lunch as this seemed in keeping with our Carpe Diem way of thinking. Vichyssoise proves perfect when Spring has yet to sort out who is boss. Serve it hot or cold as outside temperatures dictate.Read More
