Nobu ‘Toro Rossa’ Sauce

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2011/01/01/nobu-style-saikyo-miso/ This weekend, my wife suggested we do at-home-korean-bbq with an eye to the fact that the restaurants in the area were going to be crowded due to the Easter occasion and the 2017 Boston Marathon.  While I knew korean bbq used ssamjang and salted sesame oil dipping sauces, I […]

Jody Adams’ Fresh Fruit With Balsamic Pepper ‘Syrup’

These last couple of weeks have been fairly hectic, trying to meet 2 week agile sprint/scrum schedules at work.  In trying to think ahead to the holiday menus, I needed to think of what to do for dessert.  I suddenly remembered a dish that I’d done years ago when Chef Adams came out with her […]

Eric Ripert’s Lemon Confit

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2015/11/14/a-couple-of-passing-cooking-thoughts/ * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2014/10/13/trying-to-recreate-a-top-chef-dish-from-chef-ripert/ So I thought I would take another crack at remaking Chef Ripert’s dish of Poached White Fish With Lemon Confit Miso And Mushroom Consomme.  But to do that, I first needed to learn how to make his lemon confit. For Chef Ripert’s lemon confit, I found his […]

Iron Chef Morimoto’s Oyako Don For Two

So this past week, I’d been trying to figure out how to make my wife happy for a Monday night dinner.  Perusing through Iron Chef Morimoto’s Mastering The Art Of Japanese Home Cooking, I spotted his version of Oyako Don (p. 67,68).

Iron Chef Sakai’s King Of Iron Chefs Lobster Steamed With Wakame/Seaweed

Since the finale of the original Iron Chef series, I’ve been meaning to try and make this dish.  I really wanted to taste the dish that was considered one of the ten best dishes from Iron Chef: The Official Book (p 48,49), especially given the comments of the judges.  Was it really that good? Time […]

Nobu Miami Branzino Tempura With Florida Amazu Sauce

A couple of months ago I took an interest on trying Nobu Miami’s Branzino Tempura With Florida Amazu (p. 95, 96).  From past experience, making the branzino tempura itself wasn’t a big deal.  However, making the sauce was a surprise.  Both my wife and I felt the sauce was way too sweet; we actually wondered […]
