Where can I find this? I want it.

Shunji Japanese Cuisine offers bincho-grilled ayu as part of their summer omakase. Short season, though. Delicious fish.


I get mine from a fish supplier in the bay area - probably not helpful for you.

Sadly, no, but thank you.

Thanks! I’m in NYC, so not convenient for me, unfortunately.

Not much to see but a tasty shrimp quesadilla with diced shrimps, roasted red peppers, scallions, monterey jacks cheese, lime zest and juice, cilantro and Old Bay seasoning in a pan-fried flour tortilla


Never would’ve thought of that, either, for a quesdilla. I think we have some in the spice cabinet. Will need to take a whiff to see if I can “picture” how that work in a quesdilla. :slight_smile:

Braised Short Ribs (from “Simple to Spectacular” by Vongerichten) with Eggplant Mull (from “Full of Flavor” by Elia) and Mashed Potatoes - Short ribs were braised in the oven in red wine with onions, carrots, celery, garlic, thyme, parsley and bay leaf. Strained before thickening the sauce with cold butter. For the mull the eggplants were cooked to really dark brown before sautéed with peeled and quartered tomatoes, garlic, paprika, cumin and cayenne. Finished with lemon juice, parsley and cilantro. The mashed potatoes were relatively standard but from a Blais recipe were he recommends using ice cold butter to get better emulsification
