Basil, Bacon & Cabbage Basmati Plates With Double Onion & Garlic Sauce
The comfort of lunch at home, the bright glimmer of the first snow in weeks, the fullness of the refrigerator, the promise of afternoon coffee & a newspaper. Welcoming these things and more with gratitude. . Today for lunch I made these basil, bacon & cabbage basmati plates with sweet and sour red cabbage, double onion & garlic sauce and a hefty topping of avocado. It tasted even better than it looks.? >>> Link to recipe on @thefeedfeed:
Shakshuka With Basil & Fried Halloumi
It is morning, and I sit at my table, my table which I've moved to the sunniest part of the living room to eat this shakshuka in the sun's warmth.
Cauliflower cake with rosemary, eggs, onion and parmesan on a slow winter’s morning. [Thanks to @ottolenghi for the recipe inspiration.✌️]
Green olive and watercress carbonara topped with labneh and smoked paprika - the perfect accompaniment to this dreary March day of gravel roads turned to mush and an overwhelming gray/brown landscape.
Scenes from yesterday’s dinner party prep: pork shoulder with a dry rub of smoked paprika, turmeric, smoked cumin, sumac, black pepper, and coriander seeds, garnished with garlic, onion, lemons, and fresh thyme. So lovely I almost didn’t want to eat it. Almost.
Braised lemon and cauliflower leaf breakfast bowl with cinnamon curried rice, venison sausage, sheep’s milk feta, and poached egg. Slow Sunday in progress over here.
Thinking about this meal shared with my dad last spring, one of those mid-week fridge foraged, throw together lunches where we’d discuss the pottery I made that day and the latest crossword. Missing him all days but especially this day, on what would have been his 65th birthday.
Welcoming 2018 with last night's forgotten champagne turned into mimosas. Looking for hope in the promise of a new year as we forge ahead. May our tables be plentiful and our days full of life.
Celebrating the darkness of this solstice season in a warm, cozy studio with full plates and platters: shrimp deviled eggs with dill, red cabbage and apple salad, salmon avocado mini clubs (pictured), pickled herring, pear and blue cheese salad, cheeses, oven bacon, salmon, blueberries, and more.
The kind of day when friends come from afar, the house feels like a warm cocoon in the middle of the flat, brisk expanse, the wine opens at noon, and this blasted squash cake that took hours and hours turns out so pretty I almost don't want to eat it. Almost. [Kabocha, olive oil, bittersweet chocolate cake from @gjelinarestaurant].
