Well… there’s good news and there’s bad news. The good news is, La Cage Aux Folles opened on Broadway to rave reviews, received 11 Tony Award nominations, and walked away with 3, including Best Revival of a Musical. The bad news is that Tony week and all of the shenanigans that lead up to it left me so fatigued that I’ve since fallen ill and have missed several performances. Yet still… there’s more good news. I have finally found the time to update my blog and post some of my recent kitchen creations. So go on and taste with your eyes…
Tri-Color Creamer Potato Salad with Roasted Fennel, Ricotta Salata, Whole Grain Mustard, and Italian Parsley (prepared by: Sean Patrick Doyle)
Sauteed Local Fiddleheads with Lemon Butter (prepared by: Sean Patrick Doyle). These little guys are only available for about two weeks out of every year. If you can believe it, Fresh Direct had them in stock and I couldn't resist. I blanched and sauteed these and pickled the rest.
Petite Pizzas with San Marzano Tomatoes, Turkey Sausage, Pancetta, Roasted Fennel, and Fresh Mozzarella. (prepared by: Sean Patrick Doyle) I forgot to add a few basil leaves on top, which would have made for a better picture, but I chopped a generous handful and threw it into the in the sauce. I've never made my own pizza before, and I have to say... not too shabby.
