I had plenty of peppers so I thought I’d cook something colorful 🙂 Poblano peppers, Shishito peppers and Bell Peppers with roasted red Onions and Chicken. Lots of Oregano & Cumin just because.
Some cooking from last week…
Upping my game a notch (date night) – The original recipe is from Food & Wine under “Striped Bass Crudo with Popcorn Crema and Shishito Vinaigrette”.
I found some Wahoo fish instead and thought I’d spice things up (literally) by swapping the Shishito pepper with Serrano…
Also made some Lentil Purée with Cilantro (Bon Appétit mag) and Flatbread and a nice Salted Caramel / Chocolate tart for desert.
The wine pairing was Maipe Torrontes from Mendoza, Argentina. Pretty happy about my selection on that note.
Note: The food was the highlight of the evening really 😉
Also, more Cannelés. This time I added some raisins & rum.
Baking a lot of Cannelés these days. Trying to perfect this specialty from Bordeaux, France.
Bought both copper and aluminum molds and used melted beeswax instead of butter to coat the molds.
So far my recipe looks like this but I’m modifying it at every try.
Next step? Buy more molds 🙂
