It’s that time of the week again and I’ve scoured the food sections for my favorites…enjoy!
What makes a great neighborhood restaurant? Read this article in the SF Chronicle about some local favorites and, of course, my favorite-Delfina.
Pull out that blender! If the NY Times is right, blender drinks are back. I love the recipes for Daiquiri No. 2 and Cartegena Limeade
The Seattle Times is talking vegetarian today. I am definitely making the Spinach Torta with Potato Crust-brunch or dinner, it sounds fantastic (plus it is from Deborah Madison, the reigning queen of all the best veggie recipes!).
Indian Spiced Grilled Lamb-yum. Marinating meat in yogurt makes it very tender, as long as it doesn’t marinate too long. The combination of the acidic yogurt, spicy chilies and ground cumin makes this lamb sound amazing. Serve it with a green chili chutney, some cooling raita, and basmati rice and you’ve got an easy summer meal.

PS…had a few delicious dishes up in Yountville last night at Redd. If you find yourself in wine country any time soon, don’t miss the ahi tuna with chili oil, avocado, Asian pear and crispy puffed rice. The combinations of flavors and textures was out of this world!
