Dinner

Fish Taco Enchilados

Fish Taco Enchilados

In addition to sandy beaches and great climate, San Diego is known for excellent fish tacos. Interestingly, these delicious fish tacos are made in the Baja style which can be had by driving an extra mile past San Diego. The real deal. Hands down, the […]

Salmon Collars

Salmon Collars

I was on a mission to find some grouper and maybe some sardines this weekend at the fish market. No sardines, yes grouper, and some delicious salmon collars. What a nice surprise. Fish collars are far less expensive cuts of fish than the commonly seen […]

Restaurant Martín Berasategui

Restaurant Martín Berasategui

Located right outside of San Sebastián in the picturesque town of Lasarte -Oria, is Restaurant Martín Berasategui. Impeccable in technique and creative in presentation, the tasting menu spans 1995- 2014 and features a  compilation of old and new dishes. The dining room is beautiful with breathtaking views […]

Mugaritz

Mugaritz

Aside from returning to San Sebastián to savor the flavors of Basque cooking and get my fill of pintxos, it would be insincere of me to stop the story there. After our last trip to Donostia and out-of-this-world experience we had at Arzak, I was left […]

Huaraches with Charred Cactus

Potato and Kale Tarts with Petit Basque Cheese

Carrot Ginger Soup

Carrot Ginger Soup

Soup is good food but keep your spoon in your own bowl. Chilly winter nights have called for a nice warm bowl of soup. This carrot ginger soup with chile butter is a favorite of mine. I make it at least once a year and […]

Finger-Lickin’ Fried Chicken Sandwich

Finger-Lickin’ Fried Chicken Sandwich

Once in a while, a good idea strikes and there goes the afternoon. That’s exactly what happened when K thought up this fried chicken sandwich concoction. Out came the bread book and off to the market we went. Originally, we were thinking about using a […]

Pujol {Mexico City}

Pujol {Mexico City}

Right after making our Mexico City trip reservations, we started looking for some restaurants to try. Of course, I had my favorites that I would have loved to revisit, but I also wanted to try something new. After all, this trip was about discovering new […]

Zurriola {Tokyo}

Zurriola {Tokyo}

It happened again- I bookmarked way too many restaurants in my Michelin Tokyo guide. I had more dining establishments bookmarked than we had days to eat. So, the inevitable needed to happen… I began to edit out choices and pare down to the absolute must […]
