Blue Ginger Lychee Cranberry Salsa

Sigh. So I had to go back the the drawing boards after trying out one of my dessert ideas with some family relatives. It turns out one of them has a ‘texture’ thing and didn’t like the Matsuhisa/Nobu Banana Chocolate Harumaki.  “The cooked banana was too soft for my tastes”.  So after doing more research, […]

Shabu Shabu

When I was growing up, my folks would occasionally have sukiyaki and shabu shabu at home.  With the bad weather this past weekend, my wife suggested it might be nice if we did a shabu shabu for dinner.  This is what she had in mind: But a shabu shabu isn’t complete without dipping sauces.  I […]

Blue Ginger Garlic Marinated Lamb Chops, Scallion Shiitake Sauce And Edamame

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2012/03/21/a-quick-sunday-night-chicken-supper/ So my wife asked if I could do another lamb dinner since we hadn’t done one since last Sept 2011. I thought I’d do Chef Tsai’s Garlic Marinated Lamb Chops (Blue Ginger: East Meets West Cooking, p. 157).  It’s a fairly straightforward recipe.  By his own admission, Chef Tsai […]

Lemongrass Scampi with Pappardelle/Mafaldine

My wife loves pasta. My wife loves shrimp.   One of my wife’s favorite dishes is Legal Seafood’s Shrimp And Garlic  that’s tossed in tomato, scallions, mushrooms and pasta. So I thought, “wouldn’t it be nice if I could make her something like that for supper?” As I leafed through a bunch of my cookbooks I […]
