> > This made my day today.
Old fashioned, work and time intensive and probably a bit ridiculous to prepare for just one person, but oh so worth the trouble. Reminded me of my time as executive chef years ago, when chef’s and guest’s still valued real food and service and the world was a better place (Maybe? Maybe not) 🙂
The stuffed potato with sour cream, beets and diced apples was excellent, seemed to be a bit Scandinavian in it’s taste and appearance. Gratinated broccoli, what’s not to like! And anything in green peppercorn cream – Hello !
All in all a meal I can recommend to anybody who has a bit of time on he’s/her hand and values quality over the “in”-factor.
Bon Appetit ! Life is Good ! > >
