Since I got old, occasionally my mind starts wandering aimlessly all over the place, sometimes I’ll get these “WOW” moments, when I realize the obvious………. 🙂 .
Such as this bonbon :
“When I create a dish I have not seen, prepared or eaten previously, it feels nearly the same as when I used to create a beautiful painting”.
I utilized canvas (the serving dish), paints (the ingredients), garnish/final-touch (the varnish) and, most important, a picture of a finished painting in my mind (a picture of a finished dish in my mind).
And there you have it – creativity, skills, and experience, applied to very different mediums 🙂
.
(I used to paint in my spare time and was rather successful at selling my art for rather good $$$. Maria used to gold-, silver- and bronze-leaf the raw-wood frames for these paintings, as well as bespoke frames for other artist’s paintings.
For a few years, this provided us with a handsome, additional income, until I started my web business and, later on, this blog). 🙂
.
But back to the present time and the dish at hand.
This steak salad recipe makes for a super delicious entrée for lunch or dinner, a light snack or anything else you want it to be (Buffet, anybody?).

P.S.
Instead of the more traditional croutons, I used tarallini  (Small  Taralli , (sometimes marketed as “Italian Love Knots”)

  1. The first taste of a dish is with the eye, I was taught; and your presentations here are beautiful. Your talent certainly extends to the visually artistic; and your pictures on the wall look excellent. I have suspected that you also photograph everything, yourself. Food photography brings in yet another talent.

    Congratulations – and thank you, once again

    1. Hi Peter,
      Yes, of course, all the pics and all the food are by me.
      The writing too, but I guess that one is nothing to be proud of :-). Although, I am completely self-taught in English (as well as a few other languages), so I guess effort counts too.
      When I was young, anything seemed achievable.
      As for the pic’s, I do all shots “freehand” (no tripod), no special lighting (no flash, no floods), using a point and shoot camera.
      You see, if one love’s what one does, one constantly critiques oneself and therefore (hopefully) one betters oneself constantly 🙂
      Cheers !

      WOW ! Lot’s of “one’s” in that sentence 🙂
