I am always grateful for having several friends who enjoy cooking, enjoy learning various cooking techniques, enjoy the challenge of putting together meals that are at the level of professional chefs in restaurants, and having people over to eat their food.
I like cooking but only the quick and simple dishes that I can eat bibimbap-style. I don’t have the patience to make food that requires several days to prep and cook. I need immediate gratification.
Last weekend, we were invited to dinner by SY and his wife. Melon wrapped in jamon. Caprese. Sous-vide short-ribs with simmered daikon and pickled carrots in a light Japanese broth. Osmanthus and goji berry konnyaku jelly. Bite-size red velvet cupcakes topped with cream cheese frosting. Food was delicious! All we had to do was to bring a bottle of champagne and our appetites.
Jamon and short-ribs were from Foodie Market Place.
