Long time no see. I’ve missed you, and I hope these loooong work days will become fewer and further between. I’ve got some exciting news, though – you and your baby sister are both featured in the “Sites We Like” section of the new Pizza Quest website, headlined by none other than Peter Reinhart, the bread guru.
I’ve also got a picture for you. It isn’t much, just what we had for dinner last night. I’m thinking of making it a little feature called “One Meal, One Photo, One Sentence” for days (or weeks) when writing a whole post isn’t in the cards, but I’m still eating delicious things that I want to share with you. It’s inspired in part by this post that Jenni recently wrote on Pastry Methods and Techniques, in particular this sentence:
We even decided that reading one of those ridiculously long-named menu items is often enough of a recipe, or at least a guideline so we can make a reasonable facsimile at home.
So here’s a picture, and a short description, just in case you want to make your own version.
Fillets of lieu noir (maybe pollock, at any rate a firm, flavorful white fish) with Thai flavors (tamarind, ginger, scallion, lime, fish sauce) baked in a banana leaf. I served them with green curry rice, broccoli in a spicy peanut sauce, and a fabulous Australian-French white.
Happy New Year, and may 2011 be filled with good food and good friends!
