I’m back in New York… with a kitchen to cook in, and a boyfriend to feed!  ‘Tis tomato season, so I have to take advantage.  Found some lovely heirlooms yesterday at the Farmer’s Market in Union Square, along with the greens for the pesto.  But I had to trek to Agata and Valentina for the burrata!  It’s not easy to find burrata in Manhattan, and I’d probably still be looking if it weren’t for ChowHound.  Don’t be fooled by the picture; this ball of goodness was the size of my two firsts clasped together… and we devoured it in minutes.  Then we moved on to our entree – generous filets of Halibut served with White Beans, Wilted Arugula, with White Wine Caper Sauce, and Grilled Bread (an altered version of this recipe from Epicurious.) We couldn’t roll out of our seats when we finished.  It’s very possible that I will be fat one day… and then I’ll finally get to play those coveted character roles.
