My trips to NYC has been inspiring me to cook more lately. I’ve been able to experiment more and more with different foods. I’m sure I’ve mentioned some of these from previous trips:
The dangerous habanero chicken pizza… which was delicious but deadly.
My famous meatballs…
My Short Ribs over Mushrooms and Chard
But here are some more recent things I’ve made in NYC
OK this isn’t really “made” but J and I decided to have a simple wine, cheese and meats night…. with steamed artichokes and baked Yam fries..
Iberico, Chorizo, Duck Salumi and Coppa
So many cheeses…
Half of these are chili/cinnamon rubbed, the other half are truffle butter rubbed..
And then the next night I made a warm grilled brussel sprouts salad with different peppers and veggies… topped with habanero vindaloo chicken…
And some Kale Chips and Fresh Avocado
STOP BEING USELESS
AND START BEING A CHEESEBURGER
So these were the peppers…
That cause me to split my finger open…
and go to the ER :[ WAAA
And then the day before Miami.. uh... night before, we had a a dinner party
I forgot to take pics of the panko pan fried quail I made [marinated in Honey , Orange, Habanero] which each person got a whole quail, cut in half on top of mixed greens as an App]
and I made Duck Breast “Confit style”
Jonathan brought Capri Sun BEER!!!!!!! <3
Oh back to the duck… slow cooked for like 2-3 hours… and then popped into oven with some balsamic vinegar, red wine, pear, raspberries, shallots and fig jam,
See… demolished the salad already… I served with truffled broccolini and mushrooms and baked chili/cinnamon yam fries.
And then the night after we got back from Miami I made bunny curry. YES. Rabbit Curry. And it was actually NOT overpowering on the bunny as some people said it would be. You could taste the bunny cuz I left them in big chunks…the legs were kept whole, etc….. just celery, carrots, potatoes, yams, onions, a whole rabbit [I butchered a rabbit for the first time]
Some steamed okra on the side…
And then I put it all on a bed of mixed greens, freshly made sushi rice, topped off with rabbit meat and curry sauce. DELISH!
OK, now that we’re caught up on that I feel a bit better and will continue onto more NYC eats and Miami posts.
